36-Inch 5-Element Induction Cooktop, Architect® Series II is rated 4.1176 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from One major design flaw I love the fact that this stove has five burners, but I am still not able to wrap my brain around the fact that there is no burner small enough to use a small saucepan! Since the burners will not stay on if the pan is not the right size...I consider this a real "con" in it's design! Unless I am missing something in the manual, I see no way around this issue and what would have otherwise been a stellar review, gets less that five stars for this reason alone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sleek, Stylish, Performer We recently did a complete kitchen reno and went with all KitchenAid appliances. We have never had an induction cooktop but we love it. Aside from the sleek and stylish look it presents, it performs extremely well. Boiling water in a minute using the Boost feature. Excellent fried eggs. Incredible heat control. The timer can be set for a single burner to shut off when set. It's extremely easy to clean. The large center element is large enough to handle even our 10 qt. pot. We purchased the Emeril by All-Clad E914SC PRO-CLAD Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Dishwasher Safe PFOA Free 12 piece Cookware Set and it performs very well on this cooktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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
