Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice buttons [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] we bought the cooktop ahead of the home remodel, so it has not been installed just yet. However, we opened the box during delivery to check for damages and to verify the model received. We saw and felt the control buttons on the unit and was impressed. They felt sturdy and well made.

The vertical dimension was important to me because we have drawers under the cooktop. This may have been the only one made that would have worked for me. The final installation looks great and it works well too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pros: The Ultra Power burner boils water fast. Knob controls... Pros: The Ultra Power burner boils water fast. Knob controls are sturdy. Multiple size burners for different needs. Cons: Not the easiest to clean but easier than the GE profile we had before. Spacing of the burners. Beware Home Depots return policy on major appliances. That wasn’t clearly stated when we bought the cooktop.

Can you install this cooktop on 3 edges of the countertop?

We want to replace our cooktop in the island that has 3 sides. 4th side (front) is a complete cut out. Can this Kitchenaid cooktop be installed with support on 3 sides only?
Asked by: JSTX
I would be concerned about heavy loads near the front. It may have a tendancy to bow. And I'm not sure how attractive the front would look.
