  • Very nice butt.....
    Reviewed by Steve in Cinci - October 9, 2020

    Just got this installed and like it quite a bit. I would suggest a design change though, swap the 2 left burners from front to back so the big one doesn't heat up the controls area. I like that this is made in the USA but was disappointed to see the sticker about that was placed over a small scratch in the finish, so it wouldn't be seen by Quality Control? - Made on line 62 date 9/29/2020 (knocked 2 stars off Quality for that). Also like others have mentioned, it's difficult to see the control labels due to the way it's etched/printed in a color that is almost identical to the stainless. (knocked 1 star design for this and the left burner positions

  • 5-Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - November 21, 2016

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Do't buy the cooktop for the griddle. We tried it once, but it is so small, not worth the effort, but otherwise, the cooktop is great. It produces nice strong burner BTUs and also low levels good for melting and simmering. We do have, as others have noted, a bit on tight space with all 5 burners having pots and the pots crowd..but we do not do that too often. The lit rings about the knobs that light up are loose, and may need to contact the vendor to see how we can glue it back so it does not move around. the ring light is aesthetics but for as much as we paid, the ring should not be loose. I would also consider knobs in the front or side vs. in the front.

  • Versatile and Functional
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Debbie - July 14, 2016

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Has been a joy to cook on. The different burners give lots of options to obtain perfect cooking temperatures. The center griddle pan is awesome for even teens to cook their own quesadillas, grill cheese, pancakes etc... and the pan cleans up very easily and quickly. I like the lighted knobs as I sometimes leave burners on especially after simmering and there is a low flame. I also like the ignition going to High first and then around to low; it just makes sense. My former Kitchenaid cooktop lasted 18 years and was only replaced because of water damage so I hope this new one lasts as long.
