Cooking Experience

chief chef 1/27/2015

This is a very impressive looking cooking appliance, especially its low profile between the flame and the grate. There is no negative comments as far as its operation to cook and keep it clean. However, although it looks slick in appearance, I would check that the grates are level and that the cooking pots and pans do not wobble when using it. Get a guarantee from the retail store to replace them if they are uneven because the manufacturer will say that this manufacturing defect is not covered under their warranty but comes under the cosmetic part of their warranty which excludes this problem, but, they will be happy to ship me a set if I purchase them. If they can send replacement grates to correct this problem, I don't think this is a cosmetic issue, but, a manufacturing defect and should be covered under their warranty.

Constant humming sound negates any positive feature of this

LBELL 1/27/2015

I have been using Kitchenaid products for 30 + years and have always been happy with them, until now. I replaced the corroded twenty year old Kitchenaid cook top in my "fixer" with this model, and was concerned about a constant moderately loud humming sound coming from the power supply to the pilots. I looked up "troubleshooting" in the manual and it states right there that this is a normal feature of this product. This is a serious design flaw. Life is already noisy- I don't need this constant presence in my home. So, if your kitchen is not in your principal residence, or is far away from any other room, or noise isn?t an issue for you, it cooks very well, and this model might work for you. It is unacceptable to me. I returned it for a quieter brand.

No, I do not recommend this product

Mohawk 1/27/2015

Love my new gas cooktop. Only issue that I would prefer is the ability to have more "simmer" options. Only the middle burner allows for low simmer and I often want more than one eye performing at that level.

talfam 1/9/2015

I bought this a few months ago and have been thrilled with the feature of locking the burners especially when having a party because you can still use the space for putting out food without the worry of a burner accidently being turned on. The sleek look fits in perfectly with my newly remodeled kitchen.

36 Inch 5 Burner Gas Cooktop

Renee807 12/19/2014

So glad I have the 5 burner and not the 4, the extra space for the pots when cooking is wonderful! If you have the space get the 5 burner! Easy to clean up with the a sponge, do not use a scrubber on the stainless as it will scratch the coating. Grills are good just wipe up and wash once in a will. One thing that I find hard to clean in the glass around the dials, just never looks really clean. Also found that the large element was not lighting, have to keep the area clean. Like the burner re-light when blown out.

poor layout for pots

Laurice 11/10/2014

I wish I could return the cooktop. The real estate layout of the burners are not layout to take advantage of the unused stainless steel areas. As a result the pots don't fit without cramming and can only accommodate smaller pots.

I replaced an older GE cooktop. This cooktop cooks more evenly and faster. I am very happy with it. Especially the larger burner so I can boil water so fast. Don't like the buttons so much.

Superb Functionality with no Fuss clean-up

ApplianceGeek 8/11/2014

Bought the 36" 5 Burner Architect II gas cooktop to compliment the other KitchenAid appliances in our kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, convection microwave and oven combo). We replaced another premium brand cooktop that worked okay, but had reliability and cleanibility issues. The burner performance is outstanding. The dual step large center burner works fantastic for quickly boiling large pots of water for corn on the cob, or simmering a big pot of pasta sauce on very low heat for hours. The range of temperatures across the five burners is tremendous. The integrated grate design allows for easy sliding of heavy pots and pans from one location to another. A real benefit to those who cook in large quantities. The clear coated stainless steel makes clean up a simple damp sponge affair. Seems to be impervious to minor scratches as well - a real problem with out previous cooktop. Highly recommend this cooktop to the serious chef and to those influenced by design, beautiful, and functionality.

Cooktop

Santman 6/3/2014

I bought this cooktop about 2 months ago and today the repairman is coming to fix one of the front burners that is not working properly. Also, I didn't realize it when I bought it but, the burners are too close and I am not able to use the back burners if I am using the front ones. The pans won't fit. They are only 71/2 inches apart from the center of the burners. I am so unhappy with my choice! The burners should at least be 9" apart!

Put this (or similar model) in my new home 2 years ago. Still looks brand new thanks to the clear coat protection. Previous cooktops have been very difficult to keep clean. I/m so glad I upgraded to the clear coat protection. Nice size cooktop- large enough for a large kitchen without buying professional grade. Love the large grates that form a nice flat surface.

HomeCook 1/2/2014

I am an avid home cook who cooks on a daily basis. I have found the KitchenAid® 36-Inch 5-Burner Gas Cooktop, Architect® Series II to be a pleasure to use. There is plenty of space to have multiple pots in use simultaneously. The clear coating makes cleaning very easy. In regard to temperature, I have only one minor criticism. Even the smallest burner cooks a bit hot. 99% of the time, this is not a problem; however, if one needs to cook on extremely low heat, this could be an issue. Overall, it's an excellent product and I highly recommend it.

Josie65 12/23/2013

I've had the 36" Architect Series II for about 2 months now and am happy with it. Performance is great, and the clear coat makes it very easy to keep it looking clean and streak free. The only area that is difficult to clean is the inset panel that surrounds the burner controls; those areas are difficult to clean in general, and since this one is recessed, it adds another area for grease and crumbs to accumulate. But even knowing that, I would still buy this again if given the chance.

TommyFloyd 12/23/2013

With the gas controls stretching across the front of the cook top and surrounded by a "black" face plate clean up can be very time consuming. The gas control knobs do not pull off and just about every thing you cook on this top will leave a mess on the black face plate. Any splattering grease is really the worst problem.

Best cooktop!

Marci 12/21/2013

When we were researching appliances for a total kitchen redo this past spring we looked at a lot of brands. The kitchen appliances were at the top of our list. We ended up buying a kitchen aid refrigerator, wall oven, micro/convection oven, range hood and the 36" gas cooktop. We purchased a bosch dishwasher but it was so small we exchanged it for a kitchen aid and love it so much more! I love the cooktop...not only function great it also looks awesome! The only "negative issue I have is where the knobs are is black and is hard to clean. I wish it was also stainless steel like the rest of the cooktop - but everything else overrides that "complaint! I would definitely recommend this cooktop!

robertnapa 12/21/2013

When using one burner the spark starter on the center burner tries to ignite even though that burner isn't turned on. Does that mean there is leaking gas? The constant popping of the igniter is irritating to listen to. Not a comfortable feeling but credit to our dealer for getting the service call set up on very short notice.

This stovetop is well-made. My wife loves it. She especially enjoys the large middle burner for cooking with large pots, a wok, or canning. We can use all our pots and pans on it and we particularly like using our cast iron cookware. Everything can be heated up quickly. It is rather nice to look at and, although like most gas burners it takes a bit of time to clean, it is easier to clean than most.
