Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I was so excited to get my cooktop but now I'm concerned. It scratches very easily and it is very difficult to get spills, boil-overs, etc off. I never dreamed it would be this much trouble.. I really need your help to enjoy this cooktop

Excellent cooktop - ductless works pretty well

JV 7/19/2017

This is a great cooktop that performs very well. We did go with the ductless option which performs better than expected but not perfect. The filters are also slightly difficult to find and expensive. But that's the price we paid to have a "clean" look in the kitchen. Recommended.

This cooktop has it all

Dooziebird 7/11/2017

We bought this KitchenAid cooktop to replace one that didn't have the downdraft feature. I'm thrilled with how this one looks and performs. The downdraft is powerful, and the elements heat quickly and cook evenly. As compared to the previous cooktop, the KitchenAid glass top seems to clean up more easily and the markings around the knobs are easier to read. Very pleased with this purchase!

Nice cooktop with downdraft

Nadia 6/22/2017

Bought this electrical cooktop with downdraft about a month ago. It's got 5 burners. So far it's has been working great. The only thing is we haven't figured out a good way to clean it and make it spotless. It shows grease easily. Have tried several products designed to clean the ceramic glass cooktop but not satisfied with any yet. Still looking for a good cleaning product.

Nice cooktop

Doug 6/10/2017

Overall, it works as advertised. We are happy with it, the burners have plenty of heat, and the downdraft works pretty well. But there is one thing about it you should know....The labels on the control knobs are hard to read. Take a good look before commit.

Not pleased with the glass finish

MillieMc 4/29/2017

I've had this cooktop for 2-1/2 months. I am only somewhat pleased with its performance, though it takes some getting used to. It's not like induction cooktops I've had in the past (two, both another brand). The knobs' off position is down, not up, and the setting markings around the knobs are faint and difficult to see. There is only one "hot" indicator light rather than one for each element. The main reason for this rating of the unit is that I find the glass top difficult to clean. I cannot get it clean, that is, free of streaks and oily residue, using anything I would normally use or what's recommended. (I'm not talking about burned-on stuff--I don't let that happen.) It streaks terribly, collects lint that's almost impossible to remove, and I have to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to clean it. I do like the various sizes of the elements and dual function of some of them. Bottom line, I'm disappointed in it and wouldn't buy it again or recommend it, sorry to say.

No, I do not recommend this product
