Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and looks great [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had to wait 5 months for this cooktop to come in and glad I did. It looks great and has great features!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cooktop [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the cooktop with the exception of it is very hard to keep clean and shiny. My last one was black with white speckles and much easier to keep clean. Any cleaning tips would greatly be appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the choices in size of elements (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Works great so far. As it is all black, it is a little challenging to keep looking like clean glass but the extra work is worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is wonderful other than cleaning it I am not giving 5 stars because of how much time is involved in cleaning the cooktop. I have had this for three weeks now. We did have to upgrade our electric to install it as what was needed 25 years ago for the Jennaire we replaced no longer is the right voltage. Be sure to check that if you are replacing an older appliance. It fit perfectly into our cutout without any modification. I love the burner sizes. The ultra high heat double burner is wonderful for canning. I was very impressed how quickly it came to boil and that it remained steady while I processed my cans. Some people complain about the two double burners turning different directions for double/single. It doesn’t bother me because it helps me keep straight which burner I am using the knobs for. You get used to it quickly. I haven’t had a need to use 5 burners simultaneously, but it is nice to have different functions for different burners. The melt function is handy, as is simmer and ultra high. I like having the big burners in front as the bigger pans are heavier so I feel it protects the cooktop by not having to lift heavy pans to or from the back. What I don’t like is it is impossible to keep looking showroom clean. Kitchenaid recommends Affresh which I did not find locally. I used the highly recommended Weiman cleaners from Lowe’s. Every time I use it, it seems I need to the scrubbing tool and the razor to remove residue. It is not a simple spray and wipe. I then need to polish with a microfiber cloth or else I see streaks. I even have one circular spot that no matter what I do it will not go away. It totally annoys me, but since nothing removes it, sadly I have to live with it. I worry every time I use it that another unexplained spot will occur. I even went to Schott Ceran (the cooktop glass maker) website to see if there is a better/easier way to keep it clean. There isn’t. Bottom line, it works great. But be prepared to spend 15 minutes cleaning after each use (and also be sure it is cool before cleaning unless you have a sugar based boil-over which requires cleaning while warm).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cooks Dream We just renovated our entire kitchen and put in all new KitchenAid appliances because when we asked the appliance sellers what they had in their kitchens the answer was almost always KitchenAid. I hat when I turn on the ultra high I have boiling water in just a few minutes and when I am melting butter on the even low setting it doesn't end up burned when I walk away for a second, as a baker this is a huge plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition but one issue [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this cooktop to replace 22 year old GE in good working order to go with New low profile KA microwave, Love the look and performance of both. Now the but, why is a 30” cooktop not made to fit a 30” base cabinet without having to modify the sides of the cabinet.

How to adapt this model for an existing 20 15/16" x 28 7/8" cutout to replace a 37 year Jenn Air?
Asked by: nasus
If your top is a granite or quartz, it has to be cut to fit the new 37" cooktop. Also it will be very messy when whoever that will do the cut for you.
