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 4 out of 5 by from Good buy I should have replaced my electric stove with this induction cooktop years ago. Cooktop is easy to use, low maintenance, cooking is faster and don't have to worry of setting off fire alarm when frying. Induction cooktop is located is on a 9ft island and don't have to worry about grandchildren touching a hot electrical stove and has a control lock..... great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! Year and a half ago we replaced our kitchen appliances with the new ones made by the Kitchen Aid. They all look very nice and overall we are pleased with our purchase except for induction cooktop. Within first several months it broke three times! Kitchen Aid replaced it with a new one, which worked for about 9 months and broke again. We had it repaired just last week and today it broke again!!!! Same thing and we see the same error others described F47. Called customer service and only heard that they are sorry but are not responsible for my dissatisfaction with my purchase... There is something really wrong with this particular appliance. Do not purchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Burner Placement We bought all Kitchen Aid appliances back in 2014 when we had our kitchen remodeled. We choose the induction, which is great but the placement of the elements are poor spacing. I cannot put 2 medium size pans side by side at the same time. I do wish the spacing was different. Since there is only one layout one has no options other then a regular electric cook top. Over all we like the cook top just not the placement of the elements for different pan size. Thank you

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.
