Disappointed in glass cooktop
from Fall City, WA. 98024
Comments about Whirlpool 30.8125" Electric Cooktop - Black:
When I bought the first one it lasted two days when the glass top cracked! I was disappointed but I was told I would receive a new one. After using it for a week we noticed the glass has bubbles in it ! Whirlpool does not build a quality cooktop also you have to be very careful when cleaning it ! My old cooktop lasted for 25 years and the top was still in good shape only one of the burners went out so we though to get a new one ! Looks like that was not a good plan !!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Chips & Scratches too Easily
from Phoenix, AZ
This cooktop is very stylish and cooks good but the glass top is too fragile for a robust cook. The constant concern of moving a pan and causing a scratch drives me nuts. Just yesterday, I dropped a small tile and it hit the edge and not only chipped it but it also cracked at a 45 degree angle all the way to the adjacent edge. I have only had it installed for a month and regret this purchase. Now because of the chip and crack, I must find a replacement!The burner layout of having the largest burner next to the knobs is bothersome if you are cooking any food that splatters since the grease or food gets all over the knobs.Previously, I had a Whirlpool Ceran Glass cooktop for 22 years that I absolutely loved and it worked great, was easy to maintain and never did I have to worry about scratches or chips. I wish that Whirlpool had kept that same level of quality in their new glass cooktops.

I've only had this cooktop a couple of weeks but am enjoying it! The control knobs on my previous cooktop were in the way and these are to the side and out of the way. I am able to simmer foods without sticking, yet water comes to a boil quickly. Clean up is about like my previous smooth top---just have to stay on top of spills and splatters.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to cook on and clean up
I just got it installed (finally) and I have only used it once. It's beautiful and it works. Since I've only used to once I can't really give a review on whether it will continue to work.
from Enfield, CT
This stove heats quickly, more so than my previous Whirlpool glasstop. I give it 4 stars because it shows everything. I had a speckled one before that didn't have to polished all the time to look good. I also would prefer a better variation in sizes of burners. This has 2 small, 1 medium and 1 large. Medium is more useful to us.I like glasstops because they eliminate dealing with the pans under the coils and replacing coils all the time. I had my previous glasstop for 20 years with no repairs until now, when 1 burner broke, and there are 5 of us cooking all the time.
from Whigham, GA
This cooktop looks beautiful. It is even better than I had anticipated. It is larger than I thought it was going to be. I definitely feel that it is a great value as well! I am in love with it. It heats up at light speed. I am so impressed. I highly recommend buying this!
Great looking cooktop
from Southlake, TX
This is a great looking cooktop and very easy to use and to clean. It worked with my existing wiring and breaker. Really happy I got it and I would recommend it. The price was certainly right.
easy to clean
from Seal beach
Still getting used to cooking with electric, but was pleasantly surprised at the ease of cleaning up spills using the recommended products. One downside. .a little disconcerting when the burners start and stop glowing when regulating the temperature. We thought it was broken
