This 30-inch induction cooktop uses electromagnetic energy to generate instant heat directly to your cookware without spreading the heat across the entire cooking surface. A bridge function lets you combine the power of two elements into one large cooking zone for specialty cookware such as a griddle or oval pan.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from just don't buy this model Love Kitchenaid products but this is junk. Purchased Dec 2015, has been serviced 5 times, last one Oct 31 2017 and part installed Jan 25 2018. While testing it failed again so still not fully functional. The F47 error happens when you use the boost function. Beautiful cooktop, but only as an ornament as it takes a long time to get the parts needed. Every time serviced entire piece was replaced except the black cooktop. Wanted to love it but just can't. Waiting to hear back now as to what the extended warranty company, Warrantec is going to do. Ugh!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New way of cooking! Induction cooking is fast like gas but electric. I had to get used to that feature-I burned a lot of things! I had to get new pots which added to the price. I’m getting used to it & like it much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this cooktop I purchased this cooktop as a group of entirely new appliance. A very expensive purchase. I had spent the last year planning my new kitchen renovation. I purchased the appliances, but did not have them installed immediately (of course we were not on schedule). The cooktop was installed in Mid-November, by the second week of January the largest burner was not operating. I called Kitchen aid and the best they will do is send me to someone for service. This cooktop should have been replaced. By the time the service gets accomplished, I will have a broken cooktop for close to a month. And then . . . who knows if it will continue working. I'll never buy appliances from this company again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less Than Two Years and Needs Expensive Repair We purchased this cooktop two years ago and it already needs a repair that will cost close to the price of purchasing a new one. RIDICULOUS! Two burners on the right side are blown and from what I understand we need to replace one of the three power boards. We'll see, could be more to it. So disappointed. For the price we paid and the technology I was hoping for a product that would last at least 10 years like my old GE cooktop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously; it's awesome! I have now had this cooktop 2 1/2 years. I LOVE it! I can't love it enough, seriously. When I decided to go "induction," I was very reluctant. EVERYONE said GAS! Except, my friend who is an avid cook. She was RIGHT! It heats up in an instant. Cools off quickly...and best of all, there is no heat that escapes beyond the pan that you use. That means, no burnt fingers..and no wasted energy, no HOT kitchen. My only wish is that prices would come down so that everyone can afford an induction stove. It truly is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to control and great to cook with We purchased and installed the unit just over a month ago and could not be happier with it. It is extremely easy to control cooking temperatures. Cooking is a breeze and clean up is also easy.
