I bought this cooktop to go along with the suite of Kitchen Aid items. I liked it because the knobs are on the side out of the way of the cooking surface and process of cooking. They are also set in a way that makes the cooktop easy to clean under and around the knobs. Nice!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good but not as good as my 15 year old model
from Charlottesville, VA
PRO - Its a cooktop - it gets hot.CONS - (1) Outline of burner surfaces are hard to see. Old unit has a pattern in the glass and the elements had a different pattern - that was easy. This is just the same high gloss finish with a hard to see burner outline. (2) Very hard to clean - old unit was trivial to clean. The pattern in the old unit made streaking a non problem. This unit has high gloss glass. No way to clean it with windex. Need to use a white paste polish. Needs to be done EVERY night or it becomes impossible to clean. Far more effort involved than in the 15 year old one.
Look, No knobs!
from Eugene, OR
The burners are responsive and large enough for our over-sized pans, No knobs make the cleaning much easier and adds to the usable cooking area. Love the power burner that heats water (etc) much faster than our old cooktop. And love the easy to use "touch" control. This is much easier to regulate the heat than the old one. Like all flat-tops, you have to watch the spills and cleanup as quickly as possible. Only downside for me is that you have to avoid "shaking" the pan like you can with a gas cooktop...but that's my cooking style.

We remodeled and purchased all kitchen aid appliances. This cooktop is a very sleek design, easy to use, and very versatile. So nice to have the option of 3 different element sizes on the front burner and 2 sizes on the far right burner. Great option if you prefer cooking with electric versus gas.

Works much better than expected. Scratches easily though.

Cooks beautifully and evenly. finally a 30" cooktop that has an easily accessible large/variable cooking surface. Only reserve is it does require more diligent cleaning as surface is so shiny it shows food/spots very easily.

So far so good. Heats up fast. Looks great. Love the real metal knobs. Better than plastic.

So easy to use
from Cleburne TX
So beautiful! But, alas! After just a few uses I just couldn't clean it. Looked spotty and was already showing a scratch although I didn't use iron skillet or anything like that. Was a real pain but had to return it Cooked great but not at all satisfied as it looked "used" after just a few uses. Couldn't revive the new look.
