Installed in our new home Jan 2014. Didn't expect it to fail after less than 2 years. There are other induction cooktops with better warranties.

        We bought this through lowes when we remodeled our kitchen. This cooktop was such a huge improvement from my other one which was 33 years old and I was sooo excited to get a new one. I've treated this cooktop with the upmost care since it was installed and I've kept it look sparkling new. My husband went to turn it on and one of the knobs came off in his hand! After the other one lasted 33 years and I never had anything break and now this! I'm sick over my new cooktop not lasting 4 months!!! The worst purchase out of the entire new kitchen! I also purchased a whirlpool dishwasher that leaves the worst water spots!

                    I bought this cooktop to replace a similar Whirlpool cooktop that we have had for several years. I like the newer layout, larger dual-ring element.

                          This is a good stove top. I wish I had gotten a different one because to me the two big burners are to big for my pots. I don't cook much so its ok. I Replaced another Whirlpool top that I liked better I got it in 2009.

                                I bought this a month ago and am so happy I did. If I had known cooking would be so much easier and faster I would have purchased this product a long time ago. It heats really fast and very easy to clean up spills. I like both features of the cooktop ON and the HOT surface. I really enjoy my stove.

                                I bought this to upgrade my kitchen along with other appliances. I thought my old GE cook top was doing OK but this Whirlpool does a much better job. It heats up faster and, more importantly, it cooks more evenly than my old GE. I like that it has a 12" element.

                                      This cooktop is impossible to clean. I use the recommendations Whirlpool has given me and it won't come clean and it scratches. I had a Whirlpool cooktop and I could clean it, but the new one is awful. I don't like when I turn on simmer that all the eyes are on simmer. I can't turn the heat down enough on just one element for food to stay warm.

                                            We redone our kitchen and bought a black micro and glass cooktop. What a difference. I would only buy Whirlpool from now on.

                                                  All my major appliances are Whirlpool and I wouldn't have any other brand. I love the new cooktop. I was worried about keeping it clean, but it works beautifully and is very easy to clean. After cleaning, a little spray of window cleaner and it shines as glass should.
