Very Nice Cooktop

4 by A Dylan

done Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We've had this installed and working in our updated kitchen for about 5 months now, and overall its a joy to use. The burner elements heat up quickly and evenly, and they are relatively easy to control... it takes longer to adjust heat lower than for elements to get hotter. The vent fan is great - works much better than I'd anticipated it would, and it really does suck smoke and steam right out - even works well on medium, and not too loud either. if there are to small downsides... 1 - its hard to keep looking clean. a problem with all cooktops like this i guess, but it seems like I'm having to clean it as soon as it cools down after any use with spill or splatter...(don't try to clean when hot - makes things MUCH worse) Unfortunately, the lovely black surface shows off every spec of grease/food particle. 2 - The knob for the double burner is not intuitive... to use in single mode, you need to turn it to the opposite direction from all the other knobs - and we've had some surprises with over or under-heating. Otherwise, if you like smooth top burners, this is an excellent choice.

Stainless Steel Strips are a safety hazard

clear No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased my cooktop from Home Depot and had it installed last week. First time I cleaned the cooktop I noticed that the four stainless steel strip edges are very sharp and if I am not careful, I could slice my fingers. Called your customer service and advise of a manufacturing default. Your service tech came yesterday and acknowledged the safety issue. They are ordering a new cooktop. Hope the new one is better????

Bought this a few weeks ago as we are updating the kitchen and needed a downdraft cooktop to replace one that was28 years old. Heats & cools down much faster than old one. A bit concerned about keeping black glass looking good, though, as it seems that it will scratch easily. Only time will tell how well it holds up with daily use.
