Looks great, appears larger than it really is. Actually an inch and a half wider than the unit it replaces, yet fit in the same place. Powerful middle burner.

Good product, arrived quickly when promised, shipped in good condition. Salesman on the phone tried hard sell on upgraded shipping, but I declined and they got the product to my house before the date it was promised anyway.

This unit replaced a late model gas cooktop that was difficult to clean and had a small cooking area. Good burner control, fast ignition and the large center burner heats large pots quickly.

Have only used this cooktop for a couple weeks but so far it has been great. Very nice flame on all burners. Precise control of the flame. Easy to clean.

PROS

  • High power-low simmering
  • Large contiguous surface

CONS

  • SS requires more upkeep

BEST USES

Comments:

We are very happy with this unit. Very efficient and attractive layout. Lots of power for the wok or large pots, yet also good at low temperature simmering. The range of burner sizes results in something that works for virtually every situation. Published rough-in dimensions were a little larger than our previous cooktop, but we found that the actual width was slightly less than advertised and it barely fit in our granite countertop. We checked the actual dimension at a local big box before ordering online. We are transitioning our kitchen to stainless steel appliances and find they take a bit more care and upkeep.

Comments:

After much research, purchased for new home. Really like the solid feel of the controls and the precise temp control. Although a bit pricey, Abe's had a sale price roughly $200 off retail that made it competitive. Well packaged and came with easy install instructions. Minor issue with granite countertop - had to fabricate wooden wedges to hold top in cutout. Metal retainers would not adapt to my thick granite - may be my custom granite but wedges work great. After nearly a year, cooktop works like a dream. Wish there were griddle options for grates - otherwise great cooktop- would definitely reccommend. Worth the money.

Comments:

This cooktop was our first transition to a gas cooktop from electric. We absolutely love the look and surface area. For a 30" cooktop, I was amazed at the workspace. Not only is it beautiful, but it is easy to clean! We were thinking of going with an electric, smooth cooktop for ease of cleaning, but this one cleans up in a snap. I was surprised at how long it takes to boil water, but I don't think it is this unit's fault. I am just used to the speed of electric.

Comments:

I have cooked for a long time and this cooktop is the best! It is the next best thing if you can not afford one of the commercial types. It exceeded my expectations! Large surface area allows one to move pots, pans and skillets from burner to burner with ease. The large center burner is great for stock pots and large skillets for making soups, making a big skillet full of fried chicken or a wok full of stir-fry. The heavy grates are a plus except you have to be careful when lifting them up for cleaning not to tilt them because they will scratch the stainless part of the cooktop. I wish I had room for the larger version but this 30" utilizes every inch to the max! I do not use the 2 smallest burners much. They are noisy and I can adjust the two larger ones so precisely I do not need the smaller ones. I would prefer all larger ones or just one small simmer burner and 3 larger ones with the big guy in the middle. Over all, it is a great cooktop.

I was looking for a powerful 5 burner cooktop but only had 30 inches to install . This was perfect. It fits in the space the center burner heats up a pot of water for pasta quickly. You can use large pots and pans at the same time it is not crowded like you might think. Great cooktop

Comments:

Don't see how you can go wrong with this cooktop. The style is there, the functionality is great, and you get Bosch quality. Just be careful doing the install because the metal edge that's underneath once mounted is sharp and will cut you if you're not careful!
