36" 5-Burner Gas Cooktop

Sue 9/24/2017

We recently renovated our 1970's kitchen, and this cooktop helped our antiquated space take on the attributes of the current century. After having an electric cook-top for the past 35 years, I was skepical about the tje efficency and ease of cleaning, but I have to say that I have fallen intantly in love with my new cook-top. It's easy to clean, gives me plenty of control...I don't have to wait until the burner cools down, and I can use my beloved cast-iron frying pans without the fear of scratching the surface.

Boiseboy 8/4/2017

It is great for cooking. Only fault i find is with the On-Off knob being very close to the front burner. You have to be careful not to turn the fire too high, you will be in danger of burning your fingers when you turn it off. It gets very hot.

Two stars because it's pretty, but lacks any power

Stacey 6/7/2017

It looks nice, but it ends there. Highly disappointed. Right now I'm trying to boil two different pots for dinner, but that can't be done. The only burner that creates a proper boil is the largest, center one. (Even though I'm using appropriately sized pots to the burner). So now instead of having my dinner ready all at the same time. I will have to wait 12 minutes before I can cook something else that also needs to boil on the center burner. Beyond frustrating!! It's basically 4, medium/low burners and 1 center one that will get hot on full blast. I was really excited for a nice, new, beautiful gas range. But this one makes me miss my 10+ year old basic electric stove top.

KCGS556ESS

Malevets 5/23/2017

KCGS556ESS is a beautiful looking cook top. Unfortunately it does not ignite very easily and worst, it does not boil water quick enough to cook pasta. Other reviewers have said the same. I tried calling customer service only to get the run around and no one seems to know the answer. One person would pass me on to the next only to be put on hold. Finally, one lady said I would have to pay for some service guy to come out to fix it. KitchenAid, please read this carefully. This is essentially a brand new cook top, so I don't believe there is anything wrong with it, other than the fact that the design is flawed. I live in CO, so maybe do some experiments to see how your burner behaves at higher altitude, lower air pressure.

Not worth it

MC 5/21/2017

We purchased our home in December 2016, within two weeks there was rust on two of the burners. I contacted customer service and was advised is was cosmetic and it would be covered since we were within 30 days. After the 30 days, you are responsible for any repairs. I'm thinking and told the customer service representative that we paid too much money for the this stove to be having issues this soon. We should have longer than 30 days for the warranty. If the stove was built well, we should not be having cosmetic issues within a few weeks. Fast forward to today, a piece of the rack broke. The stove wasn't hot, we were about to wipe it off after letting it cool down, so there is no reason why iron steel would simply break off. We have been in our home for 5 months and have had nothing but problems with the stove. The stainless steel developed a stain and I only used a damp cloth to clean the stove. The refrigerator and dishwasher were problems as well. I am so disappointed with the quality of the appliances, especially the stove. Kitchen aid need to do better.

OC resident 5/10/2017

I love this cooktop! It is easy to use and clean, very modern looking. Even though it is not black stainless it still fits in nice with the other black stainless products from this line. My only complaint is that it is not always easy to know when the burner is on. There is no light or other notification so I sometimes feel that I have to double check to make sure the burners are completely off. Nevertheless, I would still recommend this to anyone.

Looks beautiful, functions poorly

SMT970 5/8/2017

We built a brand new home and purchased this range for our kitchen. It looks beautiful, but does not perform well. In order to boil water I have to use the largest, center burner on the highest setting, and even with that it is just a low boil. The other burners barely get a boil and I find pasta will get soggy before it properly cooks, (unless I use the center burner). The flame seems inconsistent and I can hear it flickering, as if the gas is sputtering. Sadly, I find myself missing our 10-year-old electric range in our rental home, which performed much better than this. I was really excited to start using gas, and to have a brand new, nice range, unfortunately this did not deliver.
