Pros:Looks great! Low profile. heats up quickly.

Cons:Not durable. Web site'sa joke. Warming element is worthless.

The Bottom Line: I suggest that you look elsewhere for this type of cooktop.


We purchased this unit less than 2 years ago for our new home. It worked fine for about 22 months, then the left front burner quit working. It is part of the unit with the bridge element. You guessed it, the warranty is for one year! Also you have to buy the entire left front & left rear unit as one piece. Guess what the price is? $180.63!! The entire unit cost less than $700 new. What a rip-off price for a part. Why are replacement parts so expensive? I'll bet that if you bought all the parts separately it would cost thousands of $ approaching the cost of a new car. There ought to be a law against this kind of robbery. Whirlpool's web site is a JOKE!! They do not have access to the parts list & you have to call their toll free troubleshhoting number to get it & prepare to endure the automation questions from Hell! Their call center does not have any techinical people to answer your questions either. You get a csr than can email you the parts list. The cleaning with a wet cloth is a lie. The food will burn on the glass top so just get the cleaner they recommend. You will need it!!!
