Failing after 10 months of use

By Mike

from Chester Springs PA

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

Purchased in Nov of 2014; however, I didn't install use until July 2015 due to construction delays. Cooktop worked fine for 6 months, then the random error codes started; shutting down unit. The error codes indicate a surface overheating condition (C2); this happens when the burners are at Medium (5-7). How exactly does an induction surface get too hot??? The pans get hot, not the surface. We even followed the crazy installation instructions by cutting ventilation slots for the cooling fans in the cabinet below during installation.

I spent $8K on Kitchenaid's higher end series products for our house. After 10 months of use, I'm not too happy with the quality.

Wall Oven - KEMS309BSS - OK
Two Dishwashers - KDTE504DSS - One with a failed LCD screen
Cooktop - KICU569XSS - See Above
Cooktop Ventilation - KVWB606DSS - Missing screws, Kitchenaid refused to send - the screws were not available as a separate part number. On 2 occasions it has shut off spontaneously with no response from buttons.

Heating Element Cool Down Feature

By Larry

from Mn

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

This is my 3rd. induction cook top. The cool to touch is one of the reasons I like induction cooking, however there is an issue with this model's cool down feature. It feels hot to touch and it take a longer time to cool down.

Induction Cooking

By Lee

from Youngstown, Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

I love induction cooking. this is my second cooktop. I preferred the hybrid type, but it was not available. This Kitchenaid has a feature I do not like, I cannot see where the burners are, they are not clearly marked I have to pick up the pots and pans constantly after stirring to see if they are in the right part of circle and most of the time they are not.

terrible - don't buy

By dissatisfied customer

from honolulu, hawaii

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

If I could give zero stars I would. The large burner in the center only heats a 5" circle in the center of my pan. I called to have it serviced and was told that Kitchenaid has said this is normal operation. I very rarely provide reviews so the fact that I have provided this one shows I am very unhappy with this product

Fast cooking; slow customer service

By Custom General Contractor

from Pinehurst, NC

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

I bought this cooktop seven months ago, and love the speed and control it offers when working. However, the cooktop quit working two weeks ago, and the customer service response from KitchenAid/Whirlpool has been very disappointing. I have been told that the parts are on backorder, indicating a design flaw, and that it could be three more weeks until they come in. Additionally, if the parts fail to fix the problem, replacing the unit could take as long as long as six weeks. Given the customer service that KitchenAid/Whirlpool deems adequate, I would recommend spending your money elsewhere.

WOW #3

By Denver Living

from Denver, CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

We did a complete remodel of our 1969 condo kitchen to a mid century modern, we wanted a smooth cooktop and did not want the typical glass cooktop due to the inconsistent heat level. This product is like cooking with gas, we can't believe how fast water boils and one it is turned off it's off! The bridging feature is great for a griddle. Can we also talk about cleanup-easy, easy, easy! Spills do not harden on the glass surface, they just wipe clean.

By Brook

from Georgia

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

I couldn't be happier. I have had electric my whole life and dreamt of gas. jn Reality I cohld have put in gas wothxthis with this reno, but I opted for the low maintenance of this glass instead of greasy cooktop. Oh wow... we love it. We show it off and people are amazed. Boiling water is crazy fast. Less than 2 minutes and sooooo easy to clean. i love cooking pancakes on my griddle when Bridged between the 2 small eyes

Great upgrade to kitchen

By JB

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Electric Cooktop:

This was my first experience using induction cooking. Every bit as good as gas. Brings food to rapid boil immediately and down to a simmer just as quickly. Love the fast cool down of surface. Cleaning is a breeze.
