Good fit for my small kitchen

Comments about Whirlpool 30.8125" Electric Cooktop - Stainless Steel:

As other reviewers have said, it does scratch easily and it has developed mystery spots that seem to be in the glass and won't clean off. Various cleaners seem to leave a sheen like oil/grease hasn't cleaned off completely. I finally solved this to my satisfaction by wiping down with rubbing alcohol after using a cleanser. I have no complaints with the heating elements; they do their jobs.

        I installed this cooktop about a month ago and have been extremely happy so far. Elements heat up very quickly and heat is easy to modulate. The Ceramic Glass cooktop is very easy to clean. Price/performance is outstanding.

                    I find it harder to clean than my old ceramic cooktop! I am in my seventies and must press very very hard to get a clear clean surface on the glass top.

                          When redoing my kitchen, I decided I could do without an oven. My husband & I decided to go with the flat top for the modern look & ease of cleaning. So far, I really like it.

                                Purchased this cooktop two months ago and installed it myself. Installation was easy. Just a few wires to connect. Heats up very fast keeps steady temperature. Easy to clean. Was a great value over more expensive cooktops.

                                      We had a 1990 kitchen, so we decided to replace the counters & the appliances. We looked at many stove tops. This cooktop looked good, and it fit the requirements of existing cabinets.
                                      We had all appliances installed and we were very happy with the esthetic visual effect.
                                      Then we started cooking on it. Beautiful ! Even cooking, quick heat-up, just as it should be.

                                                  Best bang for the buck! I finally have an electric cook top that allows me the control I need to go from a boil to a simmer in a calculated amount of time. Each burner reacts a little different the then the other, but you will be familiar with it in no time. Cook top is very easy to clean and the invisible coils put on a nice show when you increase the heat. There is a convenient lit indicator reminding you that the cook top is still hot. If I had anything negative to say about this item, it would be that it will scratch easily and you must take care in sliding your pans across the top. Also, anticipate having too alter your counter top opening to accomodate the cooktop, it seems to be just a little longer and wider than the one your replacing. I would buy this again!

                                                        We bought this unit just under a month ago. It was easy to install and works and looks great. It is a replacement for an older whirlpool model. No complaints at all.
