However the downdraft vent is terrible. It is very noisy and vibrates. The noise is from the vibration and is very loud and you can even feel the vibration by holding a fry pan handle that is cooking. Completely unacceptable. Had Sears replace the motor and fan and still is noisy and vibrates. Called KitchenAid and they are sending someone to see what the problem is. Hope they can fix it as we like the cooktop except for the vent. by bills99Seguin, TX | Fri, Jul 13, 2012 Was this helpful?YesNo 0 comments | flag 21 visitors found this helpfulAble to keep my current layout with this kitechen aid cooktop.

It has the warming burner in the front! Anyone with a lick of sense would put the warmer at the back with a useful cooking burner in the front. That's all...very poor design! I would have given it only 1 star but felt it deserved more for the fact that it is pleasing to the eye and may work very well (which I have no way to judge). by My2centsForFreeNorman, OK | Wed, Jul 3, 2013 Was this helpful?YesNo 0 comments | flag 39 visitors found this helpfulKitchen Aid electric cooktop Do not purchase this cooktop! It looks clean, easy to use and has a downdraft feature, but in the 6 months that we have owned it--we have had more issues with it. After waiting six weeks for it to arrive, we had our first issue with the cooktop a few months later. The smaller of the dual burners stopped working. After contacting Sears, a technician came out to replace the burner element on the smaller burner. The day after Christmas, as I was cleaning the cooktop, I noticed a hairline crack that ran the length of the unit-- starting at the same burner that was recently repaired...coincidence? I immediately called Sears who told me that I needed to contact Kitchen Aid now because the warranty is through them (buy the warranty through Sears!). Kitchen Aid sent a company out to inspect the unit (2nd time now) -- the cooktop glass needs to be replaced now. Kitchen Aid refused to replace the entire unit...even though it was the second time the unit needed to be serviced. In fact, their policy is to repair -- not replace, apparently "defective" is not a word their vocabulary. Oh and I am not supposed to use the cooktop until the glass is replaced...which could be 2 -3 weeks...they don't have the replacement glass in stock. After speaking with the customer service representative at Kitchen Aid and his manager...I barely got anywhere - for my inconvenience, they are willing to extend my warranty for another year-- big deal! Of course they do not take into effect the 3 days I needed to take (and will need to take) off of work to let the repairmen fix this unit. I don't even want this unit now -- too many problems. Save yourself this headache...buy from a company that cares about its products and its customers. by avila540Oviedo, FL | Wed, Dec 29, 2010 Was this helpful?YesNo 0 comments | flag read more

This cooktop is great for island or peninsula installation, as its built-in downdraft vent captures smoke, steam, and odors right ...at the surface. And with four burners, you can do everything from simmering to stir-frying with a range of high-to-low heat outputs. ... 20 visitors found this helpfulVERY POOR DESIGN/UNSAFE!! I love Kitchenaid products, but this cooktop is an extremely poor design! The cookware has to be in EXACT placement to be secure on the cooktop. Twice, I have almost had the pan slip off the grate--The grates are domed so the pan is not always flat on the surface. I bought this off the Sears website since there was no floor model to actually see it. It is very attractive, especially on a granite peninsula or island, but stand next to it and hold onto the pan handle as you cook or you could have a SERIOUS accident! Also, the knobs are very poorly made and having plastic knobs on an appliance that is used daily is a really bad design. I have had to replace 4 already. by kmrattyCody, WY | Thu, May 30, 2013 Was this helpful?YesNo 0 comments | flag 28 visitors found this helpfulkitchenaid downdraft is horrible and the grill is peeling...

I'm returning my 36" Induction Kitchen Aid Cooktop because the pan sensors will only detect a pan within a 1/2 inch of the edges of the heating elements. The smallest cooking element (4 out of the 5 elements) is seven inches. This means that the cooktop will not "read" a five inch pan and will not heat. The smallest pans that can be used must be six inches in diameter or larger. One quart and two quart pans are only five inches in diameter (including Kitchen Aids own one and two quart Induction cookware). I've talked with Kitchen Aid and Whirlpool personel and a service repairman and they agree that it is a design flaw. The 36" model needs to add at least one smaller cooking surface (like the 30" model) to be able to heat smaller pans. Do buy an Induction cooktop.

It was so sleek and the glass was super easy to keep clean. Biggest problem? As others have said, the burners and grates are light grey and so they stain. ANY cooking grease, or even burning impurities in the gas, leave dark smudges. I found using a plastic scrub pad with bar-keepers friend DAILY kept them at bay. But really......why not make the burners and grates BLACK? It would be sooooo simple. The smudges would never show. Come on Kitchen Aid - get on the ball! I can't believe they haven't figured this out in all this time! Otherwise, it's a beautiful stove-top, and the glass is really easy to clean - doesn't show grease streaks like a black glass stove-top does.

The pluses: looks good; burners work very well. The minuses: the glass surface is too delicate for daily use. After 1 month of use and using special cleaners as directed, the cooktop looked worse than the 20-yr-old enameled Kitchen Aide cooktop that we replaced. The grates are disproportionally bulky desing-wise and overly heavy use-wise. Bottom line, this product is not designed for those who actually cook.

The power and simmer burners are extremely useful. I like to wok cook and the power burner is great for that. Love cooking on it. Now the down side. When a little drip or grease splatter or other food gets on the grates or burner tops while cooking it bakes on and the spot turns black. It is nearly impossible to wash off. I have called Kitchen Aid and they are sending some of their cleaner. The customer service rep acted like they had not received other complaints about this but as you can see from one of the other reviews I am not the only one having the problem and it is not from the gas not being adjusted properly. Kitchen Aid acts like they will work to satisfy me but the grates and burner caps are terrible to try and clean. I would not buy this item if I had it to do over. by Stinnem88 , Oklahoma | Sat, Feb 16, 2008 Was this helpful?YesNo 0 comments | flag 1 visitors found this helpfulExcellent quality as expected from KitchenAid Excellent quality cook top!
