  • Don't install it over an oven or drawer!

    Jun 28, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Stainless cleans up easily.
    Cons: Burners blow out. Countertop opening not standard for the industry.

    Summary: I was disappointed that my cooktop burners blew out every time I opened the cabinet drawer below this cooktop. The burners reignite but I find this could pose a potential dangerous situation as the unit ages. Jenn-Air sent out a repairman who admitted ... read more

  • The absolute worst--buying different brand now

    Nov 23, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: Read my review, enough said

    Summary: I had an old Kitchen Aid copper colored electric cooktop and wanted a gas Stainless steel. This was reasonable and looked good. Unfortunately, within the first year, three of the electronic igniters heated up and cracked. Also, the knobs that I thought ... read more

  • What they don't tell you about this cooktop!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Layout of knobs and burners. Resting plate.
    Cons: Burners blow out easily. Nuff said.

    Summary: I purchased this cooktop for our newly built house. Installed it above a warming drawer with a cabinet drawer below the warming drawer. Unfortunately, every time we open and close the cabinet drawer, it blows out the burners that are on. Doesn't seem ... read more

    Pros: Looks good.  No trouble heating up things as it has a real hot flame.  
    Cons: I have trouble with the simmer function and find it hard to clean.

    Summary: Not bad, but not what I expected. I got the bronze color (extra price) but it is really black with a few bronze flakes in it that you only see in the right light.  Stainless knobs defeat the purpose of an oiled rubbed bronze kitchen as it does not ... read more

  • Very low quality, several major flaws - all known to Jenn Air

    Not rated yet
    Pros: Looked stylish when new, large cooking grates.
    Cons: See review body

    Summary: Cheap plastic knobs which melt, gas blows out way too easily with the slighest draft (don't try turning on a range hood containing even a small extractor fan), spark ignitors develop small cracks very easily and have to be replaced.  Will never buy ... read more

  • Cheap plastic knobs create unconscionable safety hazard ; Jenn-Air knows but does nothing

    Feb 27, 2009 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Was an attractive design until the cheap plastic knob promptly melted
    Cons: Just to repeat: Cheap plastic knobs, lame service, unbelievable disregard for customer saftey

    Summary: This was the one of the few purchases for my remodel that I did not research before buying, and boy do I regret it.  I found the Jenn-Air gas cooktop as a floor model sale, and bought it thinking it was an attractive design and a high quality ... read more

  • ABSOLUTE WASTE OF MONEY!!!

    Pros: space for pans to fit, decent power
    Cons: durability, cleanablity, size, reliability

    Summary: I've had the unit for about two years and have had to replace every igniter at least twice. They're ridiculously expensive too. The thing is made from inferior stainless steel. To test, do the magnet test. If a magnet sticks it's poor quality metal. ... read more

  • Good product with a few issues

    Rated Show
    Pros: Great layout and flame control. Super burner gets very hot.
    Cons: The quality of the grill plates, control knobs and stainless metal is fair at best.

    Summary: We bought this product because it was rated well in Consumer Reports. The burners work as claimed and control knobs do an excellent job of controlling the flame. Although the grill lifts and allows easy access to clean underneath, the stainless seems ... read more

  • A tremendous disappointment, -Cheap and risky

    Rated Show
    Pros: Burners that automatically lower and makes it difficult to burn food and destroy pots.
    Cons: Control knobs melt and cause burns, cheap black grill coating comes off, difficult to clean.

    Summary: We bought this cook top after seeing it rated among the best by Consumer Report. I now wonder whether they tested the product beyond a ... read more

  • Very Nice, but one small? issue

    Mar 27, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Large burner for wok, low simmer heat.
    Cons: Cooktop face attached with adhesive foam. Be careful with installation cutout in Corian.

    Summary: Excellent price compared with models with comparable features. High output - the five burners have nearly 45K btu's. Visually, an excellent design; this is a very good looking and very functional cooktop. The large burner is excellent for a large pan ... read more

  • No complaints - great value

    Pros: Great value - compares favorably with units costing a lot more.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: Just completed an extensive search to replace a 10 year old KitchenAid glass top unit - hard to clean and the spark units repeatedly gave out. I was a little put off by reports of problems with much more expensive brands, not sure the additional cost ... read more
