Scratches Easily, Unintuitive Controls
from Wailea, HI
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop - Stainless Steel:
I bought a full KitchenAid kitchen, but this cooktop is a disappointment. Impossible to keep clean and scratches far too easily. After 12 months I need to replace it with a new unit, most likely from another manufacturer, at 100% my cost. KitchenAid and extended warranty were no help. The controls are also unintuitive to use and anyone who hasn't used it before needs a tutorial. Although it looks great when it's new and otherwise performs well enough, any product that damages this easily and needs to be replaced so soon can only get a 1 star rating.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Cooktop looks good, and performs great .
from Melbourne Beach, Florida
My new cooktop has been installed for a week. It matches my new brushed nickel appliances. The range works well, evenly heating the pans. I like the knobs because my eyesight is poor, and the flat top ranges with smooth "on & off" buttons are very hard to see. A salesman told me to just lay my hand on the burner to see which was turned on with that model. Is he crazy? So, the knobs are a plus for me ( and anyone else who wants to see what they are doing on a cooktop ).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
My cooktop is great!

I have had this cooktop for about a month, and I am very pleased with it. It heats up fast and cooks evenly. Also, it is easy to operate and easy to clean!
Ease of Cleaning
By Melynda & Johnnie

We purchased this Kitchen Aid Cook Top to complete our brand new Kitchen for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The main reasons are the ease of keeping the cooktop clean with simply whipping off with a damp cloth and applying a cream cleaner afterwards once the element has cooled off. ( we had another Kitchen Aid cooktop before this one that lasted over 20 years)
Rah at a great cooktop
By Rodg the dodge
We bought our Kitchen Aid cooktop in April, after using one for three months during our winter retreat to Florida. What a improvement from our xxxxxxx cooktop. Would recommend this unit to everyone. Also purchased the Kitchen Aid oven microwave combo also a wonderful until.
It works great, but there are some concerns
from Bloomingdale, IL
I got this unit back in May of 2015, so I have used it for a year. After a few weeks, I noticed the knobs were hot to the touch, almost burning my fingers if I did not use a towel or something. Thats been happening on and off since then. Now recently it blew a breaker and I had to install a new breaker. And also the power light stays on all the time, and before it was only on if it was in use. This unit has a major problem and potential hazard. I hope I am the only one with this problem and not many can say the same. I also bought a whole kitchen package at the time and everything else works great. Too bad I am out of the 1 year warranty, I should have said something sooner. But it just got worse a week ago.
from Venice, FL
We have this cooktop in our condo in NC. We redid our kitchen in FL and ordered the same cooktop. We are extremely pleased with this appliance. We have had no problems with delivery, installation or use of this cooktop. In our opinion KitchenAid appliances are the best and we would order them again.

I do love my new cooktop as far as cooking features, but am extremely disappointed with its failure at maintaining its factory clean appearance. I am a diligently clean person but cannot seem to find a technique for removing what appear to be below the surface markings on the cooktop!? I find this very frustrating since my cooktop never looks clean. I am seriously considering exchanging it for the good old fashioned element style cooktop unless done one gas a suggestion? Or is y Schott Ceran glass defective??!!
Should have bought another induction cook top
Food bakes on....impossible to clean
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!
