    Great looking product. Realized the install dimensions are 1/2 inch longer than my previous unit. Plan on having to open granite opening if you have are replacing an older unit. I love the smaller depth. Saves me an inch .

    My husband & I bought an induction cook set and an induction plate and our stove hasn't been used since. We were remodeling our kitchen so wanted a cooktop to be able to cook multiple items at once.

    Heats up fast and looks great. Easy to clean since there are no knobs. So far no issues with it.
