Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cooktop! When we were researching appliances for a total kitchen redo this past spring we looked at a lot of brands. The kitchen appliances were at the top of our list. We ended up buying a kitchen aid refrigerator, wall oven, micro/convection oven, range hood and the 36" gas cooktop. We purchased a bosch dishwasher but it was so small we exchanged it for a kitchen aid and love it so much more! I love the cooktop...not only function great it also looks awesome! The only "negative issue I have is where the knobs are is black and is hard to clean. I wish it was also stainless steel like the rest of the cooktop - but everything else overrides that "complaint! I would definitely recommend this cooktop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and efficient. Looks great too! I love the new cooktop. It's 2 months old now and I never realized how much I enjoyed cooking. It took a little time realizing the burners will lock and turnoff for safety reasons if you hold the knobs down too long when turning on a burner. It's a great feature but took a little getting used to. I also like the grate design and space on the range. Pots can stay warm while finishing other dishes without being directly overtop the burner. We love our cooktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice We purchased the cook top to replace a very old electric one. I had never had gas but I love it!! My husband installed himself. It is very easy to use. Also very easy to keep clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have changed 3 parts after 5 service visit in for months !!!!!! The burners go off when in slow or medium mode. We bought this burner in Jan 2013. The problem started in march.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I am an avid home cook who cooks on a daily basis. I have found the KitchenAid® 36-Inch 5-Burner Gas Cooktop, Architect® Series II to be a pleasure to use. There is plenty of space to have multiple pots in use simultaneously. The clear coating makes cleaning very easy. In regard to temperature, I have only one minor criticism. Even the smallest burner cooks a bit hot. 99% of the time, this is not a problem; however, if one needs to cook on extremely low heat, this could be an issue. Overall, it's an excellent product and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has grat features I choose the 36 inch because I wanted enough room for my large pots and this cook top works perfect. I love how easy it is to clean with the clean coat protection!! I also love how easy it is to turn on and all the different levels it cooks on. From high to low, a burner for all your needs. I had it professional installed and no problems. I have enjoyed the downdraft but wish it wasn't so loud. I would purchase the again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm thrilled with my KitchenAid Gas Cooktop! The extra BTU's are worth every penny! My old gas cooktop (not a KitchenAid) would not even boil water. Not a problem with my new KitchenAid cooktop. Now my pasta is al dente! Five burners with varying sized plates allow me to control cooking temperatures. The double middle burner is my favorite. I can load my huge stock pot onto this burner with no problems. I love to cook and I love my new KitchenAid cooktop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the five burners This stovetop is well-made. My wife loves it. She especially enjoys the large middle burner for cooking with large pots, a wok, or canning. We can use all our pots and pans on it and we particularly like using our cast iron cookware. Everything can be heated up quickly. It is rather nice to look at and, although like most gas burners it takes a bit of time to clean, it is easier to clean than most.
