Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good choice for $ poor quality and life. This is high $ product with very cheap quality, they said its Stainless Steel, but its cheap quality. Issues found - Discolored around a the burners and surface plate - Burner and surface plate and not insulation properly, you can see it clear if you look the product. - Burner don't flame evenly, causing the food to get heat uneven. -Burner started rusting - poor warranty commitment. - Ignition don't work, take long time to ignite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bad design Purchased this for a new build 5 years ago, without seeing it in person. The bottom (see picture) is a separate piece of steel so when there's a spill over or grease spill it runs to the sides and into the creases. Solid piece would be better. Should have seen it before buying, wasn't in the showroom and builder was impatient. If this is a newer version maybe my issue is no longer one, I will be replacing mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is more than expected for a cooktop. This cooktop has all the desirable features for cooking and cleaning. Our is on LPG and It provides fast, even heat on all burners. There are adequate sizes and choices of burners well spaced for safely cooking multiple items. It is super easy to clean; everything comes off and can be washed or put in a dish washer. It's easy to restore to service after cleaning. The grates are heavy duty and will take a heavy pot without bending, and it looks great! Our friends admire it and I don't hesitate to recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for cooking not for ears. We have owned this model for about 3 yrs. I love the size and the layout! I am able to get 5 pans on at a time. BUT when the burners are turned on about 1/2 way we get a high pitch sound and for about 3 of our family we have to have the burners adjusted so that our ears are not ringing. We have had 2 different repair men out and they do not hear anything unusual so we have been unable to remedy the situation. I grew up with gas stoves and I have never had a situation like this before. So, works great and a great size but your ears may always be asking for burner adjustments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power burners for indian cooking This is few of 36 inch where you get the highest btu burners in most of burner slots for multi burner usage for indian cooking. Spill are hard to clean specifically in the corner with liquid can run into metal join. But thta issue i think will be on all of them. The cost was ideal And actually this is perfect for us. Only cons is if you are looking for low low simmer for sauce cooking, then don't even consider this. This is for bigh burner cooking. Good look and quality. Go ahead with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the simplicity and efficiency of this 5 burner gas cook top. For a 5 burner cook top the price is excellent. It is easy to use and able to handle anything from simmer to high heat. I cook 3 meals a day 7 days a week --- so I know how great this cook top is. Even for a beginner cook or experienced cook, it is a great cook top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the ease of using all the burners at once. The sleek design of the range is very appealing. The ease to use all 5 burners at once is a plus when cooking for my family. The range is very easy to care for and requires very little time to clean. The quality is what I come to expect from a whirlpool product. I had a choice of brands when purchasing my home and becaue of positive experiences in tbe past with Whirpool, the choice was easy. I work recommended this range to anyone in the market. As always Whirpool delivers a top notch product!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, a good general use stovetop We purchased this with our new counter tops and our son, who is a chef was elated: a mix of small and large burners, large cooking space, quick lighting burners, easy temperature control. We wish it had a vent fan, but that would have put it out of our price range. We do find ourselves cleaning it a lot (thank goodness it is easy) as the stainless steel shows the grease spots from frying.
