No Knobs - Pros and Cons
from Beaverton, OR, United States
Comments about Kitchen-Aid 36.3125" Electric Cooktop - Black:
This cooktop is great. I absolutely love the "Keep Warm" and "Melt + Hold" features. The "Simmer" temperature seems too high for my taste. My only concern is that the control is all in the touch screen control panel and just brushing the control panel or placing something on it can turn the whole cooktop off! Then you have to reset each burner you have on. It is a three step touch process to turn on any burner which is Power + whichever burner + temp number. It also takes some figuring out how to operate it so it may not be for everyone. The Ceran top does clean up nice with a cleaning kit designed for glass/Ceran cooktops. Then it looks like new!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Hard to keep clean
from Granada Hills, Los Angeles, CA, United States
I bought this cooktop in December. Every time I use it, spots are left where the burners are under the pots. These are not spilled over spots, but just spots left under the pans. I've used the special cleaner for the glass cooktops, but I can't get everything removed. I would have liked it to look like new for a while at least.

not professional quality
from Ohio, United States
This cooktop distributes heats, then cools down, then heats up....it takes FOREVER for water to boil. I am not at all impressed by this kitchen aid product. The touch activated controls are slippery if your hands are wet or you have food on them as you would had you been actually cooking. Also this unit takes a long time to cool down, the surface area remains more than warm well after you shut it off.

We bought this to replace the JennAir cook top that was installed when our house was built. The design and functionality are superb; no protruding dials or buttons!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Heats up quickly!
from Columbia, IL
My wife and I purchased this to replace an induction cooktop. We were wanting another induction cooktop but could not find one with a similar dimension for the countertop cutout. Fortunately we came across this cooktop and are glad we did. Our main concern was the heating time and this cooktop has surpassed our expectations. It heats quickly and cooks evenly. We have been impressed with it. It also looks great in our kitchen.

I just love my new cooktop, it is very easy to clean and use. I chose touch control rather than knobs because it's easier to clean and looks better. It has great features like pre-set heat settings (warm, simmer, melt), and I like the safety features.
Excellent heating with touch controls and attractive appearance.
from Allentown, PA
This cooktop has a very convenient layout of five burners including three with multiple zone sizes. The design pattern of the glass top is very attractive. Touch controls are easy to use and eliminate space taken up by knobs on other units. Heating performance and control is very good. Overall, this cooktop gives high performance and contributes to an attractive kitchen design.
Love using it
This cooktop is everything we wanted in a cooktop. It is easy to use, efficiently heats our cookware, and is a breeze to clean up. I can highly recommend this cooktop.
from Atlanta, GA, USA
For large family cooking this is wonderful. We make three kinds of chili in three large pots and this unit provides all the room and power we need for that. Great for just the two of us also. The smaller eyes heat up quickly. The whole unit is easy to keep clean, with no knobs to get in the way. The new controls work well and are easy to learn. Love the fact that I can turn them off in order to clean the top.
