Not living up to expectations

MJMQ 7/25/2019

I was excited to replace my coil electric stove top with this sleek design. Three years later, I am not so happy--I have tried all the products and still I cannot keep the surface clean. I can have a frying pan on low with a olive oil and food will burn without actually cooking. Today peppers were brown, almost black but not soft and cooked. I was watching and stirring them the whole time. The heat seems uneven. The paint has chipped in a number of places on the vent and needs replacing. I used to love to cook, but this cook top has made cooking less enjoyable.

Rethink Kitchenaid

Totally unhappy 6/20/2019

If you thinking about buying anything Kitchenaid, think again. Like I puchased this cooktop with overalll so happy reviews, first there was very little info on what else I need to purchase with this cooktop and I was told to go ahead because it should come with everything. Now there is No Greese filter to be found anywhere, and also there is no information on where it should be installed in the manuals, plus the picture itself is missing from the kitchenaid website plus the any other pieces you want to add like ductless kit, not available.... what a sham. never buying anything kitchenaid again.

Even Heating But Too Delicate

Kimberly325 6/18/2019

I bought this cooktop and had it installed 2 weeks ago. I even refused to use it until I could get the Affresh recommended cleaning kit. Since then I have only used it 3 times--and only with my Kitchen Aid pots!--and it already has 2 scratches on it. I like that it heats evenly and has nice features but if this is what it looks like after 2 weeks, I can't imagine what it will look like in 2 years. We just moved into a new house and I was excited to get this brand new cooktop now I'm so disappointed I can hardly put it into words. I don't understand how it can be so delicate when I have followed all the manufacturer instructions to the letter.

Dlg05602 5/30/2019

The stovetop looks and works great. Heats fast and hot! The fan is quiet and extracts well. My only feedback is that to finish is finicky. It shows fingerprints and marks easily. I wonder how it will wear over time.

Replaced an old JennAir cooktop & love it so far

Anonymous 5/23/2019

We replaced our old JennAir electrical downdraft cooktop, which must be >30 years old, with this new one almost 10 days ago, and love it so far. Comparing to our old one, the exhaust fan is much quiet and powerful. The cooking elements heat up quickly and stay hot. The ceramic surface does need some tender care, after all the entire surface of the bottom of the pot has full contact on it when cooking, and heat creates residues from the pot. These light color resides on a black surface cooktop make it more apparent. Some of these residues can't be wiped off easily with just soap and water, but would need solution like Affresh which is recommended by the manufacture. We make an effort to take care of the surface daily, and so far so good. Our unit was assembled in the US, just like our last JennAir, and is one reason we chose it.

Gemlovely 4/1/2019

The cooktop looks great on the island with the new quartz countertop. We have received many compliments even from teenagers. It is very sleek and contemporary looking. It cook well and evenly too. It is important to clean after every use or one will see the residue from the previous cooking. Just had it a month so am learning more with each meal I prepare.

Took time

Prescott 3/22/2019

I bought this July 2018. It took three months to get it installed in September. I discovered three flaws underneath the glass. It was already out of warranty for blemishes by the time it was installed. Fortunately the second level customer service representative I spoke to understood my dilemma and approved the parts and labor for the cooktop replacement.

2 service issue then dead at a few years old.

frustratedmom 3/15/2019

Every fingerprint shows & food bakes on easy. No problem if cooktop cleaner used. Design is poor in that the plastic knobs pop off and won't easily go back on. The big burners should be in rear only so large items that are taller, wider, and take longer to cook are not having to be reached over to get to other hot items. This seems common sense, but apparently not to designers.Takes forever for a 1-2 quarts of water to boil. Why can't it heat up faster to hot setting? 2 x now when a tiny drop of water (from plate on counter fresh out of dish water to dry) let a drip roll under cooktop edge it blew a burner out completely! There wasn't a puddle nor was it warm (a few drops and room temp), so no excuse. Now a knob has fallen thru the glass and the fan turns on randomly many times a day. Has cost us about 750+ in 3 repairs now & we have to replace it. For a family of 7 this isn't easy to do.

Poor design and construction

Linda1951 1/11/2019

I bought this top to replace a rusted out Jennaire when we purchased out home. Just after the warrenty expired (12 months) the right rear burner quit working and a year later the front right burner only works once in a while. this tells me they are shorting out. also the down draft is so narrow it is very hard to clean in the bottom of the down draft. I have had other types of smooth tops and have not had these problems...I will never purchase a KitchenAid anything again.

This stove's burners turn on and off as they reach the set temperature. This is not good for Chinese stir fry cooking when very hot burners are needed and the burner must stay on.

Lovely & Functional but does need special care

Middkimmy 12/31/2018

For the first few days I was really worried that I had made a bad choice as every pot/skillet I put on the cook top marred the surface (happened on multiple elements with different cookware). I tried using the special ceramic cook top polish but it was still showed the marks. I thought I had ruined it. What I found is after a few more uses whatever it was that was on there (residue from the pots I guess?) eventually did burn and polish off. So I got a set of all stainless steel clad cookware with smooth base and NO MORE PROBLEMS. You do still have to baby the surface but the payback is it remains beautiful and just like new. As far as functionality it works great - even and quick heating. But if you think you want to be able to bang and scoot your pots around on your cook top this will not be the unit for you. And you will definitely want to invest cookware that is 100% stainless or stainless clad on the bottom and smooth surfaced. I also put pots on "medium" initially for a couple of minutes, then tweak it on up to high if necessary after an initial warm up....just to be safe.

Ok, but could use some design changes.

gusgus 12/29/2018

My rating is partially based on the fact that we were replacing an almost 30-year old coil cooktop, so anything is bound to be an improvement. That said, it could use some improvement. The glossy black finish shows every spot, fingerprint and scratch. I am just hoping that this unit will still look halfway decent when we decide to sell our house, probably within a couple of years. A matte charcoal, maybe speckled look would be my suggestion. The problem is that there are very few choices available for an electric downdraft unit and most are the glossy black. As for performance, I have found that the burners are slow to bring a pot to boiling.

Mixed review

MaWildcat 12/28/2018

We purchased this to replace a 9 year old KitchenAid glass cooktop. Looks nice, easy to clean, downdraft works well. My main complaint is how SLOW it heats up! Was hoping newer technology would be better than my old one but I think this one is slower yet! Guess it's ok but I'm disappointed...

Kitchenaid 30" downdraft glass cooktop

Momma Schess 12/28/2018

It's been amazing and I've had it a couple months now! It does leave stain/spots easy or I would give it a 5 star cause I can't remove them

Temperature is hard to control!

Bct26 11/12/2018

We bought this cooktop abut 6 months ago to replace an old JennAire. We have been finding this cooktop very difficult to cook on. The temperature is difficult to control; it is always either too hot and burning our food or too low to cook the way we want it. We can never seem to find just the right setting.

Limited option for canning

Cook4all 10/23/2018

I replaced a downdraft JennAire cooktop with a KitchenAide. Since there is no coil option, I am not able to can using my new cooktop. I must use a propane camp stove outside for my canner. It is very inconvenient.

So quick to heat up!

Fcriggs 10/22/2018

This cooktop gets so much hotter than my last model, and heats up quickly!

Defect

Genna 10/22/2018

I bought this product and it collapsed through my kitchen island 1 week later. I am trying to receive a replacement, but am being refused. I am sorely disappointed.

Cooktop Scratches too easily

Chefess24 10/15/2018

Our cooktop was installed one month ago. It is good looking and works efficiently but it scratches too easily. We have one deep scratch that we have no idea how it happened. Another scratch appeared last night and again, we do not know how it happened. We are not using any abrasive cleaners and are "walking on eggs shells" when using our cookware on the cooktop. This is unacceptable. We replaced a Jennair cooktop with this one and I regret it.

Scratch City

John1970 10/8/2018

Installed less than a month. Had read about scratching in many reviews of this model, and have been as careful as possible. Yet fine scratches from our pans on all the burner surfaces we have used. The only salvation is I bought this 75% off list as a Lowe's special order that was not picked up. Installed to replace a 10 year old induction that was still scratch free. Only bought it as the house (just purchased) had no prior vent and no easy way to install an overhead. The downdraft is a godsend for us, much better than the last time I had one, but the finish is ridiculous. For what I paid ($400) I think it is JUST barely OK, if I had paid list it would be returned. The "hot" indicator is far too unobtrusive as well, would not want this with small kids, worries my wife for herself.
