Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large cooking areas The multiple burners are a great feature, especially the simmer burner in the middle. Had to adjust the flames to a lower flame after it was installed which made it a more gentle flame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this cook top a year ago for my new home. I've been cooking with gas now for 25 years, and was sold on gas over electric. This is a higher end unit, and I can no longer cook anything without it burning. There is no such thing as simmer on this unit, even on the middle burner where it says simmer. When the tech came to repair my lemon KA refidg I asked him to see if he could make an adjustment on the burners, and he said sure, only to find out there is no way to adjust the burners. He thought this was strange. I notice many of the other reviews have the same complaint...the others probably don't cook much, so they don't notice it. Also the the shiny rim around the burners seems like it's plastic and it's impossible to clean. All so disappointing. I'm convinced all this newly designed stuff is all just fluff, and you're better off with the older technology on many things today.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Constant humming buzzing noise negates any positive feature I had this installed a couple of days ago and was concerned about a constant moderately loud humming sound coming from the power supply for the pilots. I looked up "troubleshooting" in the manual and it states right there that this is a normal feature of this product. So, if your kitchen is not in your principle residence, or is far away from any other room, or you are hearing impaired, this model might work for you. It is unacceptable to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cooktop But.............. We ordered this cooktop with out new home and it's been the best cooktop we've ever owned and has been everything it's advertised to be. However we do have one issue with it and that is keeping the control knobs and the area right around the control knobs clean. The knobs are located adjacent to the cooking area and as a result they are constantly getting splattered with grease etc. and because the knobs and the surface immediately around the knobs is not stainless steel they are quite frankly difficult and awkward to clean particularly when the grease is under the knob itself. The area under and around the burners is all stainless steel because each burner can for all intents and purposes be completely disassembled this area is very easy to keep and is one of the features of this cooktop we really like. If only the knobs and the area around the knobs were the same and in fact I'd really appreciate KitchAid getting back to me with a suggestion as to how best to keep these areas clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lines I really like the way this looks. It's all the cook top that we will need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from you can use all 5 burners! I bought this a few months ago and am happy I did. I really like the set up of the burners because they can all be used at the same time. It looks impressive and is impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cooktop!!! I love to cook and this cook top makes it that much more fun. I really like the slow cook or simmer burner. Lots of room on the cook top to cook anything you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove We were not sure what type of gas cooktop to buy; however, we are happy we bought the kitchenaid. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me want to cook all the time I replaced a very old five burner gas cooktop and I couldn't be happier. Having the flat grates doubles my counter top space which I can use for cooling racks too. The controls in front are easy to use and the gas is easy to control. Perfect in every way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great BTU get the job done I moved into new development 2 months ago and purchased this cooktop. So far so good...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cooktop I bought this cooktop when we renovated our kitchen and we are very happy. The flames are well distributed and results in even cooking. Easy to clean. The only negative is that the power burner is so strong that it is often too strong even on the lowest setting. This is really for items that you want to cook at a high temperature. It would be nice if the middle burner was a little more flexible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cooktop I have ever had! Have had this for a little over a month and I don't know how I cooked all these years without it. Great value, easy to use, easy to keep clean and it looks great! Solid grate makes cooking so much easier. Using it with LP gas and love the savings of a pilotless ignition. There is a heat level for anything you wish to cook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is a beast! Love this cooktop. A little hard to keep clean and the big center burner doesn't light on it's own. You have to light the smaller one first, then "blow" the flame to the outer ring. Could use improvement there. Once you get it lit, there is serious heat coming out. It's great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kitchenaid - 36 inch 5 burner, gas cooktop, architect Series I bought this product in August and had it installed in September. Love this cooktop. It is a bit more delicate - already have some scratches, but let's face it, if you are one to use your cooktop, this is enevitable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! This is my 2nd Kitchen-aid gas cooktop. I love it!! Works great, looks great and although this one is new, I had the last one for 8 years without trouble and it still looked and worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat cooking with this gas on this cook top! We chose this cook top for our new because of its styling, a very contemporary look, its value, a great price, and our previous experience with Kitchenaid products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks fabulous! A big step up for me from a regular old kitchen stove. I like the choices of burner size for different pots and pans. The flame regulator is too hot on the lowest settings, it is almost impossible to simmer, it's boil or off! I'm surprised how difficult it is to clean without scratching

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! This cooktop much more heat control than my last stove, a designer series Viking range. And it's easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very functional This is the one counter top range I like. It is very functional with various power of burners. I like the most powerful burner is in the middle of the range which great for venting out those smoke and oil and keep my kitchen clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to clean and burners are appropriate height I purchased the stovetop this spring. Very pleased with the height of the grates above the flame. Also easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good design I bought as part of my kitchen applicant replacement. Like the design and the BTU output. Powerful burners. Cook very fast. However, I would like to have better marking and feel on the switches. Like giving a click on each stage would be good. Be able to lock the switches while not using also would be good too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product Works The cooktop is a new purchase and is the only one of 5 brand new Kitchen Aid appliances which has not required service within a short time since installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Average range, looks good. This upgraded range was part of an appliance upgrade that we selected with our builder. I like the fact that it is 5 burner. The starter works well. Heating is even. I use the center burner to boil a big pot of water for pasta and I don't think the water heats up any faster on this burner than on a smaller 4 burner GE stove that I had (both natural gas). I do like the look. One annoying hiccup- you have to make sure everything is aligned just right with the plates, after cleaning or the starter intermittently clicks when the burner is on. Once you turn off and fiddle around with the top plate it seems to stop it. This has happened to me everytime the cleaners have cleaned.
