Works well, had to be retrained regarding the controls, not as noisy as some people were noticing

Comments about Kitchen-Aid 30.8125" Electric Cooktop - Black with Stainless Steel:
I would buy this product again, only 5 months old. I would like to post in two or three years to see if performance continues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had 4 different units, all blew out when boiling water on the back burner.
Sorry I bought this product. Do not recommend
from Kirkland, WA, United States
We have been using this for two weeks and had to buy all new cookware. First, one of the elements wouldn't stay on and when we had a technician come to fix it we discovered that each element requires a pan with a bottom surface the size of the element for it to work. A wok doesn't keep on the element as the bottom surface area is too small. Plus in the first week, while moving a pan off it's element, the surface scratched. That seems ridiculous since we are using approved cookware. You need to know what you are getting into.
Great new way of cooking.

We bought the induction cooktop for our new house. I liked the fact that it heats the pan and doesn't throw a lot of heat into the room. It can boil water in about a minute. You have to pay attention to it at first because it heats up so fast. We love it.

This cooktop is completely unreliable
This cooktop is great... WHEN IT WORKS! Unfortunately, it already broke down on me two times in 8 months. Each time, I was left without a cooktop for weeks. Now I am stuck with this thing in which I have zero confidence, and just wait for it to break down a third time. Do yourself a favor: don't buy this unit. Don't get me wrong: I love it when it works. It does everything an induction cooktop is supposed to do, and very well. Let me add that all my appliances are Kitchenaid, so I have nothing against this brand. But this particular unit was clearly not ready for primetime. Maybe in a few years, after the engineers have come up with a new version of the same unit, it will be ready. But right now, it is unreliable.
I love cooking on this cooktop.

I love this cooktop. The heat on each burner is even and accurate. It heats up much faster than a conventional electric cooktop. When finished cooking the surface indicator displays the cooking surface is hot, but it will not burn if touched. A few things I do not like: if you place any item that has some weight on the cooktop, a sensor starts beeping until it is removed and no cover for the cooktop. Also, the timer cannot be used independently unless a burner is on.

Although I was initially doubtful of induction technology, I must now admit this is a fantastic product. The ability to boil water almost instantly makes cooking many items much more desirable. I'm just very glad my wife really pushed to install this cooktop in our new kitchen. Buy one if you can.....

KitchenAid® 30-Inch 4-Element Induction Cooktop, Architect® Series II
I would NOT recommend buying this stove at all. We had this stove delivered and installed by Jenaire. At first we thought what a great stove. However the stove broke down within a week to month of use and was replaced not one, not two but four times. After the 4th time that the unit was replaced we gave up and decided to buy a completely different brand. We went with a Bosch. To this day we love the Bosch and have had no difficulties with it.
