Summary: I bought this oven primarily because it has high BTU burners and the griddle burners are to the side instead of the middle like most ranges. The burners work well. The power boil is very hot. The stainless steel top surface looks cleaner than the black surface.
Summary: Owned one for 4 years. Six months after purchase, coating on knobs peeled off because of heat from oven. Got free replacement from factory. Two years later same thing again. Don't buy stove with stainless steel LOOKING knobs.
Summary: This is my first gas range and I love using the cooktop. The only real drawbacks to the cooktop are cosmetic. It's inconvenient to clean up the area around the burners. The knobs under the burner I use most (the 2-ring front right burner) are discolored. I assume it's due to the heat.
Summary: I love this range! The tri-bridge and tri-ring burners work very well. The controlled simmer took a bit of getting used to but now that I know the settings, it is great for anything from soups to sauces!
