Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) New build purchase. So happy we went with gas, wonderful to cook with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cooks Great... but parts an issue Not all parts are available for this cooktop. Replacement rubber pads for the cooktop grates are not listed in the parts illustration and cannot be found online. These rubber pads are recessed to match the alignment nipples on the cooktop so generic, flat pads will not work properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Compact Rangetop [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Well-made unit. Difficult to use all burners at the same time due to its compact size. Knobs could be a little heavier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is beautiful to look at [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It is beautiful to look at The cooktop is beautiful to look at and great to cook with, but it is terrible to try to clean it. One can barely get fingerprints off of the stainless steel the finish of it is very rough and makes cleaning very difficult. I’ll go crazy seeing fingerprints on stainless steel. Wish I knew how to make this an easier chore. I paid to have the cooktop installed directly from the company, but when the delivery person brought it my countertop was not wide enough. They have yet to refund my money for not installing my cooktop. It has been since January 3rd.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from first time owner of a cooktop! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Remodeled the kitchen and ordered a cooktop and wall oven microwave.. Love the way the grates stay put. They interlock! My stove never had that. Love the control of the flame, too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with the cooktop except for.... I love my cooktop but the weakest part of the product has bothered me since it was brand new (2018). Under each knob, there is a round seal or phlange that originally was in place with something that was designed to adhere it to the SS top. All of them have popped off over time and I cannot get them to stay in place no matter what I try. Should I replace them? How are they supposed to adhere to the top? What do you suggest?

I am seeing reviews that you can only use 2 burners at once because pots don't fit. Is this true?

Can I change the grades on this cook top because they are so high the heat takes more time and cooking gets slow??

If I can get the grades only on special order
Asked by: Bal
No , it sucks, Who engineer in right mind will say it is ok to put a pot bottom 2 inches up from flame and cooking time will be the same. I used to cook 2 cups of water in 1/4 of the time. Now making a cup of tea is a time consuming event. My wish i kept my old stove top. This one has a cross metal grill top. Really Why? Will it not block the heat? I did not see that a thick metal plate on top of the burner will help anything except block the heat . Kitchen Aid will have answers to all but in practice it does not work. Use common sense ? change the grill top. Bring it close to burners and do ot put a cross metal bar on top of the burner. Thanks

I currently have an kitchenaid electric cooktop with a kitchenaid warming drawer underneath. Can I replace the cooktop with this model without needing extra clearance above the warming drawer?
Asked by: kreegs
kreegs, you will need to compare the installation specifications of this model with the specifications of your current cooktop to ensure the dimensions are the same.

With the simmer burner, does that mean all that burner can do is go on a simmer setting or can you make the heat hotter as well?

Can you please explain how that burner works?

We need to replace an old Thermador unit which served us well. It came with a fan/blower to disperse smoke if necessary with controls on the unit amid burned controls. Does this unit integrate in any way with it?
Asked by: RichardG
RichardG, the Cooktop does not come with a fan/blower; however, there is are retractable downdraft systems model KXD4630YSS and KXD4636YSS that are compatible. Hopefully, this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our KitchenAid appliances!
