  • Knobs get loose from burner
    Verified BuyerReviewed by INSP3CT0R - December 26, 2020

    Works great but a little disappointed with the quality of the knobs. They put the highest heat burner next to the control knobs and the chrome colored plastic ring below the knob is attached with an adhesive. The first time using it 3 of those rings came loose from the heat and would slide around until I ordered some high heat double sided adhesive to put under them. I don’t think that should happen at all let alone the first time using it. I really like kitchenaid appliances for the quality and look but this one didn’t do it for me.

  • High end quality cooktop!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jason - February 1, 2020

    Install process wasn’t fun. Had to have the opening cut larger in the granite counter top. Made a huge mess. No issues with the product itself though. Haven’t been using it long so I can’t yet speak to its durability. Works great though. Heats up fast (unlike the Kitchenaid oven we purchased). I like that the larger burners have the option to only turn on a smaller inner area if you need more small burners or maybe you just don’t want to put a small pot on a back burner and have to reach for it.
