Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

I'm still learning but I already love it! It boils so quickly you can leave the kitchen to go do a quick chore. I love the game instant response time. May I never cook on an electric cooktop again!

Great product

By Den

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

Remodeled Kitchen. While studying the latest cook tops we came upon induction cooking. Had really never heard of it. Did some studying. It is the best. Works great and our experience so far is just great. One thing that could be improved on is the difficulty in seeing the touch controls. They come pretty close to matching the color of the top. Hard for us to see. But then again we are seniors.

Don't waste your money on this false "Bridge Mode" cook top

By JerryJ

from Utah

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

I bought the Kitchenaid Induction cook top thinking it was going to be amazing, and with a normal round pan that fits in the space of the burners, it is.

Unfortunately for me, I specifically bought a model with the "Bridge Mode" for the burners, and quickly found out that Kitchenaid doesn't feel that people really plan to use this feature. The "Bridge Zone" doesn't actually have any way of heating the pan, so now I have an overpriced cook top that doesn't work as advertised. When I try to use the bridge mode with my griddle, the two round spots where the burners are heat just fine, but the space over the "Bridge Zone" is 200 degrees cooler than the burner zones making it completely worthless.

I called Kitchenaid, and the representative I spoke with said it should work fine and scheduled a service call. When the service technician came out, he called their technical department and was told this is normal.

If you are looking for a cook top without a Bridge Mode, get a cheaper model, because this isn't worth the extra money.

Heats up quickly. Love the top doesn't cook spills making clean up super easy! Only complaint, pots have to be exact same size of burner.

Favorite New Appliance

By VAGentleman

from Richmond, VA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

Have had it less than a month but love everything about it so far. Brings water to a boil in no time and extremely easy (and fast) to lower to a simmer - and keep it there!!!. Love the way the cook top cools down so quickly once it is turned off. I'm sure I will enjoy it even more as I use it more and become accustomed to what setting to use for different purposes.

Fast Accurate Cooking!

By Jenna

from Louisville, KY

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

We purchased this appliance to replace an older electric unit that was going out. We had previously been debating on getting gas but now I am glad that we went with induction. It is truly the best of both worlds - FAST, responsive, accurate cooking without the risk of an open flame (we have a little one). The cooktop is easy to clean because spills don't get burned on, as heat is generated inside the pan. I've had beautiful results, no burns, and my kitchen looks cleaner longer. It's also simple to use and has a sleek look with no bulky buttons. I love it!

Like the bridge

By Islandlife

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

We have been using induction for 8 years, needed to replace, wouldn't consider a different type of cooktop, really like the induction. Love the bridge feature between burners, for large batch pancakes or bacon and eggs. Easy to clean surface, nice sleek look in our kitchen.

Buy an Induction cooktop!!!

By The Lipp family

from Chino Hills, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Electric Cooktop:

We remodeled our kitchen with ALL Kitchenaid black stainless appliances. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We wanted a simple, easy to clean cooktop that complemented our black stainless appliances. We had to special order the cooktop, nobody had it in stock. We didn't get a chance to see one in person before buying it, but we were not disappointed. It is gorgeous and performs AMAZING. This cooktop is the best cooktop I have EVER had. GREAT to cook on and cleans VERY EASY.
