I recently bought a house with a gourmet kitchen that had some older and newer black appliances and hated my Bosch electric ceramic cooktop mostly because it was electric! It was only 1.5 years old, but I was used to gas and it really bothered me that the previous owner did not have natural gas in the kitchen. But they were old school, born in the depression, and well, you know, they trusted electric! I previously had already replaced all of the black appliances with mostly Kitchenaid stainless appliances, Dishwasher and French Door counter depth Fridge, so it was kinda a no-brainer that I wanted them all to match. (I had also replaced the double convection oven, but did so with the Kenmore Elite, because of the negative reviews on the noise with the comparable Kitchenaid Oven.)

So I finally bit the bullet and ran a 3/4" Flex gas line up through the basement to the kitchen. Wow am I happy I did so.

I was limited with choices because I was replacing the 37" Bosch in a granite countertop, so I did the research and decided on the Kitchenaid 36" cooktop because it was a much easier transition then to go to a free standing or a drop in. I had to do a slight modification because the new product was slightly smaller than the old opening, but since I am a handyman, I was able to perform the modification which including moving the black granite pot rests on the side and relocating them closer to the edge of the new cooktop. All in all, it came out like it was always there.

This is an excellent product! I love the choice of the different size burners and the 20K BTU Center Burner. It heats the big pot full of water for corn quickly. I do most of the cooking in my family as I grew up my family's restaurant business in St. Louis.

I also love the lighted dials that let you know the individual burners are on, because I used to leave my Viking on at my last house.

The cooktop is really easy to clean and to keep clean...unlike my last Viking and the Bosch Ceramic Cooktop which were a pain in the A!

I only have one slightly negative comment, which really isn't that bad, and surely would not affect a 5 star review, but the silk screening on the outside dial indicators is very light and hard to see, but really, who needs that anyway with a gas cooktop, you can see how high the burners are when they are operating.

I have not used the optional griddle feature yet...and don't know that I will because it is kind of small, so as far as making pancakes for a housefull, it would probably be a little inconvenient! The number one reason I chose this model was because of the 20K BTU center burner!

All in all, this is a Great Product and I would highly recommend it.

I did not choose this cooktop, but it was a upgrade in a house I was building. The first time I used it the knob got so hot and melted. The burners as so small and this is a fire hazard. I could send pictures but they do not allow them. These need to be on recall. Where are they made and who in the states is regulating this.

5-Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle

By RC

from Owings, MD

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36 5- Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle – Stainless Steel:

Do't buy the cooktop for the griddle. We tried it once, but it is so small, not worth the effort, but otherwise, the cooktop is great. It produces nice strong burner BTUs and also low levels good for melting and simmering. We do have, as others have noted, a bit on tight space with all 5 burners having pots and the pots crowd..but we do not do that too often. The lit rings about the knobs that light up are loose, and may need to contact the vendor to see how we can glue it back so it does not move around. the ring light is aesthetics but for as much as we paid, the ring should not be loose. I would also consider knobs in the front or side vs. in the front.

Extremely Dissapointed

By FerL

from Houston Tx

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36 5- Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle – Stainless Steel:

If you intend to cook with multiple pots at the same time you will be disappointed that KitchenAid didn't take this into consideration with the spacing between burners. When using a large pan on front burners you run the risk of the knobs getting hot under the pan. Knobs are opposite on each side for high/low settings which is confusing. Really poor design!

Beautiful piece

By Athena

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36 5- Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle – Stainless Steel:

This cooktop is attractive and I love the one surface grate and sealed burners. The only two problems with it is you can't remove the knobs to clean easier, and water seems to take a long time to boil - possibly due to distance from heating element? This is our first gas cooktop but I didn't think my grandmothers took that long.

This cooktop is easy to clean and because it is all one level, you can easily move pans around to get the temperature and burner span you need. The height is perfect and the knobs are on top, away from little hands.

Comments about KitchenAid 36 5- Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle – Stainless Steel:

I love this cooktop! It's spacious which allows for a variety of cooking options. The different burners and flame options allow for everything from melting chocolate to quickly boiling water. The finish on the cooktop makes for easy cleanup. The grills are sturdy and provide good support for all sizes of pans, and it's easy to transfer pans from one burner to another. The light up dials add a stylish touch.
