Rated 4 out of 5 by from Show piece! I’ve been using my new cooktop for just over a month. It’s been a learning curve to say the least! First, i purchased the wrong cookware (stainless steel with an aluminum core will not work!). Second, I have cooked on electric my whole life but this induction business is a whole different ballgame. The heat is exact, efficient, and I’ve been burning a lot of my dry foods... it takes time to adjust. I am fairly tech savvy and still forget to select the correct burner sometimes before I try to alter the temp, easily fixable, just annoying. I love the way it cleans up so nicely with minimal effort! And everyone who sees it is impressed! What I do wish was different is that if you lift a pan off for just a few seconds to add water or drain grease... the burner turns itself off. I’m sure thats a safety feature, but I wish it gave you like 10 seconds or something.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smell of burning wires after five years We love induction cooking. The 36" cooktop from Kitchenaid has been a good cooktop. As other reviews cover, adjusting the temperature is sometimes difficult especially if your fingers or the top is wet. After 5 years, the cooktop started to smell of burning wires. Repair costs are so expensive, we would be better off replacing it...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far needs improvement It’s difficult to choose a power level, it’s difficult to see outline of where the pan belongs. It seems to cook favoring one side of pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I love this cooktop. If there is nothing on the burner, it turns itself off. No worries about leaving it on. I also love that it has a lock mode so you can’t turn it on accidentally. Great if you have small children around,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely way to cook We opted for an induction stove for our new home. It is a form of cooking we've never used before and since we've been in the house, I am loving it. This cooktop is beautiful to look at and easy to use and clean. I'm still learning, but the elements are extremely responsive to changes. I am having fun amazing friends with how fast water boils with the Power feature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 36 inch slot a problem.. I purchased a unit to replace our Wolf electric cooktop. The unit fits nicely into the cutout for the Wolf. The installation instructions however require a 3/16 inch slot in the cabinet below the top of the cabinet 36 inches in length. It is not practical to make this slot. The cooktop will sit on a granite counter top above a built in stove. My dilemma is to install it without the slot or return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best thing ever We furnished our new home with all KitchenAid products because we have had good results with our other KitchenAid products. However, our new 36" induction cook top has failed to live up to expectations. It is now four months old and has had several malfunctions but has been usable. Service has been a problem. Also, we planned on using the Bridge function which now we can not use because no one makes a grill/griddle for the induction top. We can find cast iron grill/griddles but they are heavy and course and will scratch the glass top so we will not use them. One reviewer stated that the induction will boil water fast. Well try to boil two pans of water and the cook top may quit on you. Disappointed with cook top, accessories and service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Burner Good design, easy to use, and boils water incredibly fast. It's also easy to clean. Only issue was some internals that needed to be fixed after installation, which should have been handled at the factory.
