Rated 4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice features, I have only used this product a few months and I'm very happy with this new stove. June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous cooktop This is the first induction cooktop I have owned, so I was a little apprehensive. However, I love it! Of course I needed new pots and pans, but they are plentiful and easy to find. The cooking is super fast, and the bottom of the pans never get too hot and burn the contents. However, the cooking temp is even and the controls easy to use. Once the pans are removed, the cooktop cools extremely fast. The smooth surface is a snap to clean, but I don't have biol-overs with this cooktop! July 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, fast cooktop This cooktop is the fastest cooktop we have ever had or used by far. We also like that the top surface itself does not get hot....very important safety feature. The mounting went straight forward by following the included installation instructions. August 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO SPEED OF BOILING I love this unit. Easy to use - even my husband has it down! The only drawback is that the sensors cannot recognize small pots. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to operate I am happy with the design of the cooktop and the ease of the controls. The use of a slider type unit for regulating the heat for the "burners" is a great feature. The controls have a nice sensitivity so that you don't have to fight with trying to get them to turn off or on. The placement of the side "burners" are very handy when using our cast iron grill. Thank you for a great product November 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Installs easily and works great but only for certain sized pans. Installed stove 2 months ago. Stove works great but onlyif you have properly sized pots and pans. We purchased an expensive set of All-Clad pots and pans that are designed for induction tops, only to find out the smaller diameter sauce pans simply do not work on the stove top. So we now have an small sauce pan and skillet that came with the set, which are useless. December 18, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by very problematic very problematic, always have problems, will never get another. December 25, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good value, but... We are enjoying our induction cooktop, but at times there is a noise when heating that is odd. And our small pots will not work since they do not cover enough surface area of the burner to activate it, which is frustrating when you buy a large set of pots only to discover you are unable to utilize one of the frequently used sizes.
