We cook frequently and this cooktop is a pleasure to use. We recently replaced a 20+ year old gas cooktop in our kitchen and have no regrets about our choice. Our old cooktop had four equally powered burners so this new one took some some getting used to. But, once we were comfortable with the new burners, it was just great. Really like the large, flat and stable surface area and also the variety of burner strengths. Biggest complaint is the placement of the brackets on the bottom of the unit. It would have been nice to have had multiple holes drilled in order to give the installer (i.e. me) options in case there were obsticles, which there were. Other than that, we're looking forward to years of good cooking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
