Pros:Excellent High-heat output, Precise low cooking, Attractive . Two cooks can use simultaneously

Cons:Igniters troublesome, Knobs melt easily, LED Light too dim, grills too large

The Bottom Line: Not worth the price


Appliance is attractive and well laid-out. The bead-blasted surface is easy to keep clean. The shiny stainless steel surfaces between the gas knobs is very difficult to keep clean due to the small space between the gas valve knobs. The only way to clean is to remove the entire valve cover. It is not impossible but troublesome. I Suggest that the entire unit have a bead-blasted surface or the knob/valve cover be easily removed. The knobs melt easily if they contact a pot or pan moving across from one burner to another. Suggest a metal protective covering. Valve operation is not intuitive since they operate counter clockwise. This makes it easy for visiting chefs to burn a dish when they wanted to simmer it. In addition, the "Gas is on " warning LED light is far too dim. Overhead lights will easily overpower it's light blue color. Often I will overlook a burner until the hood lights are off. Suggest a higher intensity or a different color other than blue. The automatic igniter are quick reacting but troublesome. They continue to fire long after the flame is on, and periodically fire during cooking even at high heat. Service and detailed cleaning have not resolved the issue. The grills that cover the burners are spaced far enough for small sauce pots to tip over if not centered on the eye, Specially if the content is small and the handle is substantial. Suggest an added supporting outer ring around the grill
