Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed with the stain free surface I have used my cooktop for less than two months and already going to every store that carries cleaning stuff to find a degreaser to take stains off my cook top even though it says the cooktop has a stain resistant shield. Customer service was not very helpful because the only cleaning brand they recommended does not even have it available at stores nor online. Also, the burners get stained/burned too and can't clean,very frustrating and disappointed. Love the performance!! but hard to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Upgraded our appliances in our new construction home to gas KitchenAid, and there really isn't anything I can say negative about the burner. Heats quick, cools quick when done, and cleanup is a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features We've had it a month & love it. Clean up is a breeze & the center burner can get water to boil in just a few minutes! Didn't know that the added BTUs could make such a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with our purchase Bought the Cook Top for a remodel and just installed the unit. Used it extensively over the holidays and it worked well. Since it was just installed we will have to see how the unit holds up over time, but we are happy with our purchase at this point.
