Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks Great, but it’s essentially 1 Cooking burner with 4 simmering burners. This Cooktop looks wonderful in our kitchen, but the performance is far below expectations. We are essentially cooking on one burner (the center), leaving the others to simmer, at best. When we use our KitchenAid hood/vent, we lose virtually all of the heat from the burners, leaving us to view the hood as simply ornamental (not the look we were going for!). We were excited for our full KitchenAid kitchen as part of our remodel. And while the aesthetics/finish are quite lovely, the cooktop has left us unhappy with our decision.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from KCGS356ESS This cooktop was built in my brand new house. It looks great, but the performance is poor. Except for the center one, the iron holders are too high from the burners and basically you cannot use them. It takes forever to cook anything on those. It's too bad that I'm mainly using the center one + occasionally the right bottom one. Especially, the right top one, the smallest burner is just kidding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, good value We did a fair amount of research and shopped around a bit before choosing a cooktop for our kitchen remodel. We considered all three KitchenAid models for the 36” cooktop and ended up choosing this one because we liked the way the five knobs were grouped in the center and created more space for pots or pans. We compared BTU output on the three models and decided this one would be fine. We do a lot of cooking at home and it has worked out great. The center burner puts plenty of heat for things like stir-frys, and the back right burner makes absolutely perfect brown rice. The stainless steel is not as high quality as some other brands, which is the only reason we would not give it five stars.
