  • Terrible

    Aug 25, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's pretty when it's clean
    Cons: It's hard to keep clean, and it is terrible for cooking.

    Summary: The first reviewer summed up our feelings perfectly: 'Oh, how I hate this thing!" I have spent more time keeping this cooktop clean (using a razor blade, the special glass cooktop cleaner, and lots of elbow grease) than any other I've ever owned. ... read more

  • My experience: A great cooktop!

    Jul 23, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Looks great, downdraft is powerful.
    Cons: I can't think of any.

    Summary: I bought this cooktop well before I was ready to install it, but it was more of an uncharacteristic impulse buy vs. a well researched purchase because it I got such a great deal. I happened to come across all the reviews on this site before I installed ... read more

    Pros: Everything
    Cons: Nothing...well I wish it would cook for me...

    Summary: Okay...YES!!  You read it right!  I am different!  I love my smooth cooktop!  Contrary to everyone else, it is simple to clean if you wipe it after you cook! Spills come right off.  What doesn't, does with ceramic cooktop cleaner ... read more

  • Piece of junk, and Jenn-Air has no quality control, no conscience

    Oct 20, 2010 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: Hard to clean.
    Cons: I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER JENN-AIR ANYTHING!

    Summary: I have fought with this thing for 5 years.  There is no simmer, low, or medium cooking.  Jenn-Air doesn't know the meaning of simmer and low.  The stupid burner turns off, then back on to red-hot high.  So, if you're not standing over ... read more

    Pros: Looked great when first installed.
    Cons: Doesn't cook good. Didn't last.

    Summary: This is the biggest waste of $1000 I have ever spent. It doesn't cook good. It's hard to keep clean. It's probably the worse designed piece of crap that ever fit into a kitchen. I called Jenn-Air and got nowhere with the customer service. Now that it's ... read more

    Pros: Looked good when new
    Cons: Like the cooktop for our space but is stained and looks bad.

    Summary: I have a new JennAir glass cooktop which is stained and I cannot clean it.  Have tried the liquid cleaners without any luck.  Any suggestions for cleaning or ... read more

  • Not worth the box it comes in

    Not rated yet
    Pros: I have nothing good to say about this thing
    Cons: Someone from JennAir should read these reviews. Better they go out of business.

    Summary: I had a Jenn Air modular cooktop that was twenty years old and it worked perfectly well for all my cooking, especially for barbecues. I loved it. I renovated my kitchen and so I bought a new cooktop. What a piece of garbage. I wish I had read the ... read more

  • AWFUL to clean

    Pros: Looked nice with new countertop
    Cons: Looks terrible after 1 year of cleaning

    Summary: I will never again buy a JENN-AIRE product. Although it cost a little over $1000 it looks like a piece of junk after 1 ... read more

    Pros: looks nice
    Cons: make very cheap...the fan spring has been replaced 3 time and still broken

    Summary: I've read everyone's response on this stove....my issue is the knobs have all melted (uneven heat/temperature) and i don't know if i can replace with metal knobs and if yes, what does anyone recommend? I'm afraid if i replace with plastic again, they ... read more

  • horrible experience with product under warranty

    Sep 6, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good name from the past.
    Cons: Bad name now. Broken warranty, stove, and expensive service.

    Summary: After many broken promises, we are out $350 on our own. God know what else there are coming (1.5 year old stove now). Spent years on the phone with warranty department to no avail. They insist I pay more (installation/evaluation/etc.) to get them to ... read more

  • A piece of junk!

    Rated Show
    Pros: None.
    Cons: Everything.

    Summary: I also did not do my homework and regret greatly. The burners keep cycling on and off and it takes much longer to cook than any cook top I ever had. The manual says that if you turn to "HI" it will not cycle on and off which is NOT true! (What a lie!) I ... read more

  • JEC0530 cooktop

    Dec 12, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks nice and cooks OK when it works
    Cons: No reliability, expensive, slow service, no solution to continued problems.

    Summary: We have had our electric cooktop for almost 2 years and are on our fourth major repair. We have had the entire unit replaced twice and now another complete replacement due this week. Burners simply stop working. The main burner hasn't worked in 2 ... read more

  • Working great for us.

    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks nice, easy to clean, no complaints about how it cooks.
    Cons: Downdraft fan is underpowered, burners stay hot way too long after turning them off.

    Summary: I was surprised to read the bad reviews for this cooktop, so I'll share our experience. My wife picked it out along with a matching double-oven. We got a great price on both, as Home Depot was selling the floor models which were never used, of course, ... read more

  • I just hate it

    Jan 30, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: The downdraft works great.
    Cons: Not enough cooking area with downdraft & controls and food drips into the downdraft.

    Summary: Another bad choice! I guess I didn't do my homework. I already had the cooktop installed in granite so I am stuck with it. Cooktops are not standard, the cutout varies in size. Large pans don't fit on the front burners because the controls are in the ... read more

  • Enjoying the ease of clean-up

    Jan 18, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: easy to clean
    Cons: Must remember if light is on - top is hot.

    Summary: I chose the Jenn-Air for its design. I have never been burned on the knobs, I have had no problem cleaning the fan and vent. Maybe I am different type cook but only once have I gotten food in the vent area. Used paper towels and chopstick and had no ... read more

    Pros: Easy to clean
    Cons: Knobs melt

    Summary: We bought a house that had this cooktop. I haven't experienced any heating problems as the other reviews have noted. The only problem we have is one that existed when we arrived....obviously the previous owners didn't know that the knobs weren't heat ... read more

  • grill/ceramic electric cooktop

    Pros: I really can't think of any except that everyone has been very nice.
    Cons: Material, workmanship, hard to clean, and price are cons.

    Summary: Wish I had read the reviews. Would NEVER have gotten a Jenn-Air. Loved my 20 year old Jenn-Air. New one is tinny, very sloppy fit, lower power on grill. Been complaining about it for over a month.Sears says it shouldn't be that way. Jenn-Air says it ... read more

    Pros: Easy to clean, easy to use.
    Cons: Stays warm for a long time.

    Summary: I bought this product to replace an existing jenn-air cooktop. I'm very satisfied with the quality and functionality of the stove top. I had read the reviews here before purchase, but haven't experienced any of the reported problems with my unit. I've ... read more

  • What A Loser

    Dec 29, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: None.
    Cons: Too numerous to list. A piece of junk!

    Summary: We have this model which came with the house we bought. It is absolutely terrible. The burners heat unevenly with hot spots. E.g., try cooking an omelet. It's guaranteed to stick to the pan's center. Center vent is a repository of just about every ... read more
