Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cooktop shorts out - bad design We installed this cooktop in our mountain home as part of a total KitchenAid package. Very bad decision. On the plus side, it is spacious and has a high power burner in the center that allows you to place pots on all the burners. The bad news: Depsite several service calls, It often starts clicking after you turn on a burner and the gas flame will go out, and when I try to use more than two burners it shuts down and the control lock goes on. I'm currently calling for service for the third time and have only used this cooktop about 15 times. I highly recommend the KitchenAid dishwasher but avoid the refrigerator (poor design with a flap that gets in the way every time you open it, and beeps all the time if you leave door open to load groceries) noisy microwave - the fan stays on after you use it and it has a messy pull down design rather than push button side opening - result is handprints all over the stainlesss. The ovens also have poor fan control and stay on noisly for an hour after use - and miserable dysfunctional cooktop, these products are noisy, poorly designed and cheaply made. I'm going to replace the cooktop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointing This stove came with our model home. We have had a LOT of Kitchenaid appliances in the past, but this one is disappointing, to say the least. Problems: simmer function burner does not work as promised. Just turning the knob feels like it rubs plastic on plastic, then FINALLY turns on. Grates: trying to keep them clean is difficult. Because they are rough coated, food sticks to them, and if you soak them, be prepared for rust. Fittings on burners hard to clean without scratching. The engineers who design these should use them for a while before marketing, and they would likely fix these issues. We have Kitchenaid in both of our houses, but the ones purchased in recent years are not up to the standard we expect from our old favorite manufacturer. Recently emailed with problem with our Kitchenaid pro 600 mixer, and have never received a reply. We're just disappointed that the brand isn't all it used to be. I just finished cleaning my cooktop, which prompted me to look up info on this web page, hence the review. By the way, I cannot view your terms and privacy notice, but cannot proceed without agreeing...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my KitchenAid cooktop!!! I purchased my stove a couple of months ago. I love it!!! I love the middle burner and am enjoying cooking more than ever before. Only bummer is cleanup, I want to get it just as clean as brand new everytime, but the rings are staining and I don't know how to get that off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Our range was installed about 2 months ago in our new home. I have been using it for a little over a month. The flames were set to high at the factory but husband was able to adjust them. Haven't used the small melting burner alone yet but will come Christmas baking time. So far I just love the range! Would purchase again! The stainless is a bit of a pain in the butt to keep clean but worth it!
