My wife and I are accomplished cooks and bakers. We have each been cooking for about 45 years, and I have been an artisan bread baker for 29 years. Prior to building a new 350+ square foot kitchen completed 18 months ago (December 2004), we spent over ...

I wish I'd read these reviews before I bought this cooktop!

High BTU center burner. Looks great. Efficient continuous grates. Auto re-ignite. Super low simmer.

Challenging to clean, Strange placement of left-hand burner controls.

Frequent Repairs

 

This cooktop was purchased Home Depot Expo for holiday cooking. The large turn knobs, luminated blue "on" indicator, the "WOK HOT" center burner, and the "true simmer" mode of all burners attracted me. The interlocking grates accommodated large pots. ...

On-light indicator, all burner w/true simmer, center high BTU burner w/wok ring, continuous grates.

Bad workmanship, reliability, service.

We purchased this cooktop for our new house back in Nov. '03. Had it installed in December '03. Had intermittent burner ignition problems from day one. Called DCS in January who sent out a contracted technician. The guy was pretty incompetent to say ...
