Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

nanle 5/31/2017

I should've paid more attention to the other reviews. Yes it does take longer to heat the things I'm cooking. I didn't realize the grates were going to be so heavy. This would not have been a problem when I was young and strong. Like I said in my headline, I really do like the way it locks. My friend said it makes my kitchen look classy.

Margaret 3/30/2017

We recently bought a new home, and this is the cooktop the builder installed. Looks beautiful only issue is they may not be dishwasher safe one of my knobs melted in the dishwasher and the grates have lost its black coloring they have a grayish tint to them. Very disappointed as the paperwork states its dishwasher safe. I wont be putting them back in the dishwasher to clean.

Poor performance

Gaston 3/30/2017

Yeah, the look is beatiful but it does not deliver as I expected, I will explain why. I tested to boil 2.6 quarts of water in the central speed heat burner (15.000 BTU) and it took 16 min to boil which means the effective heat delivered was 5.600 BTU. I feel the problem is in the clearance between the cooking pot and the burner is large, I measured about 1.9 inches. I then took the same pot with the same amount of water and used a crate from the old stove with a much smaller clearance and cut the cooking time by half. Coclusion, bad design, the crates are too high above the burner.

This cooktop was in my brand new house and I am so pleased with the builder for choosing this brand and this cooktop. Very easy and convenient to use and I especially like having the 5th burner. My husband and I buy the Whirlpool brand. While that might not have been the only reason that made us buy here, it certainly was one of the considerations when we looked at this kitchen.

Scratches easily

Tkw 3/20/2017

Looks and works great only complaint is that if you even bring an abrasive spunge near the thing it scratches and even with the tricks to take scratches out it's not the same. Hand books says not to use anything abrasive to clean with..... Its a cook top its going to get messy and have hard cooked on things to clean off. It's just an unrealistic idea to not use something abrasive to clean with

Pretty good gas cooktop

Heidi Homemaker 3/6/2017

We recently bought a new home, and this is the cooktop the builder installed. It looks good in the kitchen, and works well. Overall I have been very satisfied with the way it cooks, and the layout of the 5 burners. I have 2 cons which keep this from getting 5 stars. I wish we had gotten the model with the EZ Lift Grate, because the grates are a little difficult to work with when cleaning the cooktop. They fit together like a puzzle, and it is hard to put them back in the correct position. It is also difficult to just lift up one grate without the other 2 sliding out of position. My second con is that there is only 1 burner that does a true simmer, and it is the back right burner (the burner I am least likely to use.) The low setting on the other 4 burners is too hot for my liking.

Grates too high

Fernandes 3/5/2017

This cooktop is installed by the builder in our new home, we had a tech come over and he said that its working as expected. The grates are too high and pots have to be wide to get the best out of it. Boiling water takes too long unless using the power burner, but again the handles of the pots get too hot to touch. Im using a low height grate on a single burner and it makes a difference. Earlier cooktop I owned never had such issues with the same pots I use. Will be replacing this soon.
