10K BTU Even-Heat™ Torch Burner

Features an exclusive design that provides a small flame for delicate simmering and a larger one that distributes high heat across the whole pan for more even cooking.

20K BTU Professional Dual Ring Burner

Allows you to go from one small flame for precise simmering to a dual flame for powerful boiling, all on the same burner.

Removable Griddle Included

Provides a one-piece flat surface that can be used on the right, left, or center of the cooktop surface, and is ideal for making a range of dishes from crepes to quesadillas.

CookShield Finish

Protects the cooktop from stains that may occur with high temperature cooking. The permanent finish makes it easy to wipe clean without harsh chemicals so it looks clean, bright and beautiful even longer.

Multi-Finish Back-Lit Knobs

Deliver a beautiful accent with pleasant LED lights that let you know when the burner is in use.

6K BTU Even-Heat™ Simmer Burner

A diffuser plate allows more control of the flame at the lowest setting, for more precise simmering and melting.

Full-Width Cast-Iron Grates

Enhance the beautiful look of the cooktop and allow easy movement of cookware around the entire cooking surface.

LP Conversion Kit Included

Allows you to convert the cooktop so it can be used with LP gas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Griddle a Little Small I have enjoyed my Gas Cooktop after using it for approximately a month. My only complaint is the griddle . The sides are very shallow so you have to be very careful or it splatters all over the cooktop. Also if you are cooking for more than 2 people you have to cook several patches since it only holds two grilled cheese sandwiches or a couple pancakes at a time. I will say it does brown nicely. i would probably not spend the extra money on the griddle again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Heat I bought this unit as a part of our full kitchen remodel. This unit is all about delivering flame across the bottom of your cookware. My last stove lost contact with the bottom of the cookware on high as the flame shoots up along the sides. Not this unit! The burner configuration of this unit delivers outstanding power and wastes nothing up the sides of even smallish skillets. I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the features and it is beautiful. I bought this in early January but took a while to get a gas line run to install the unit. The dimensions for the rough opening are incorrect in the installation manual which caused me a lot of issues and extra expense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant design and quality We chose this unit after a lot of research, and are very happy that we did. The position of the burners and controls. The various ways the burners can be used. The lighted controls. Not to mention safety features like restarting the burner if it accidently gets blown out, rather than just leaving it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from low is too high Great selection of burners. However I have a problem with most of them in that they dont have an actual "low" setting. When they are on low they are too high. Is there an adjustment to allow a lower flame?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the overall level cooking surface. This cooktop has so many options. I'm learning to use them and take full advantage. Haven't used the griddle yet but am looking forward to it. Great appearance too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with this cooktop We've had this for two months now. Very pleased with its operation. Particularly like the high powered central burner. Didn't realize how much we'd use it. Only wish the markings for the knobs were larger and easier to read.
