Comment:
I have a Whirlpool Gold smooth top drop-in range at our lake house and, while it's not as good as gas, I like it fine. So when we remodeled the gasless older home we moved into last year, I thought this cooktop would be the same...WRONG! The 2 smaller units fit tiny pots OK but the 2 large units must be made for a family of giants. Controlling the temperature on each unit is different, and none are responsive at all, it's complete guess work every time I cook. So, I'm switching to an induction cooktop and not sure of the brand...
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We bought this range due to numerous positive recommendations and we have not been disappointed. It was fairly easy to install; it is very easy to clean; it's heating capacity is awesome. However, we were surprised how easily the surface could get scratched. As a result we had to buy several new pots and pans that would not mar the surface. Read the instructions carefully before placing anything on the cooktop! Even so, some cookware that met all of Whirlpool's specifications still left small scratches that we'll have to live with
How long have you owned it:
