Whirlpool Gold® 30-inch Electric Induction Cooktop is rated 3.1111 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Verify Satisfied When buying an induction cooktop, know what you’re getting yourself into. Special cookware is required. If a magnet will not stick to your current pots and pans, you must buy new ones. Once you have all the right gear, it’s well worth the cost. It cooks fast and evenly with lots of control over the temperature. You can have a boiling pot of water (which doesn’t take long) and the surrounding surface will be barely warm. For me, it’s the happy medium between a microwave and conventional cooktop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor layout of burners,beeping alarm is annoying. It is unfortunate the large burners are in the back. When boiling a large pot, all the steam covers the micro hood, and lifting heavy pots from the back burners is awkward. While sautéing food, lifting the pan to toss ingredients sets off the alarm to alert you to set the pan back down. I would like to be able to turn off the beeping noise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is Unreliable I purchased this cooktop a week ago. It has been majorly disappointing. After about three uses an error code, F47 popped up. A repairman came out, and couldn't fix it. We are now waiting on parts. Parts to fix a new stove!!!!!! We've been eating out, because, our brand new expensive stove DOES NOT WORK!! Avoid this appliance. The technology in theory is great, but in function it is a colossal failure. You WILL regret this purchase! Consider yourself warned!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY DESAPPOINTED I purchased ($1,200.00) this cooktop 8 months ago and it was working perfectly, when suddenly the display began blinking and stopped to work. A technician came out, and couldn't fix it because he needs a thermalfuse, now we are waiting seven to ten working days on a part, eating fast food and cold food. We cannot believe that the repairman doesn’t carry a simple FUSE, that’s unbelievable. I love new technology, but this one is the worst.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not working at low temperature I bought the 60cm 6th sense induction hob and have difficulty starting it in the mornings in winter. I have taken this up with the South African branch who tells me there is nothing wrong with it. i do not understand why it refuses to work when it's cold, but works perfectly during the day and when the service team gets here. I have paid a lot of money for this hob and will take legal action if necessary. Surely this must have happened before or my specific unit are malfunctioning, in which case it should be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, could be better Slider power controls do not go beyond level 8 without several tries. Timer would be better if it would shut off, instead of just blinking, and beeping. Beep not loud enough or persistent enough to hear in other room. Functionality great otherwise. Would sincerely just like to see a good product made better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with our Whirlpool Gold 30" Electric Indiction Cooktop We are overall pretty happy with our induction cooktop. We like the even heating and ability to control the temperature. Some issues with induction cookware working on front burners and not the back not sure if that is cooktop or cookware. Super easy to clean since nothing burns on cooking surface. Wish the finish wasnt so shiny. Shows every finger print. Controls in front is a nice feature but I have found its easy to lean over and turn them off by accident. Compared to the regular glass cooktop we replaced I would buy induction again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great unit but it requires learning to cook all over again. New pots and new technology make cooking a whole new game. As time goes by I'm sure the wrinkles will be worked out.
