About - LG LCG3091ST

The LG LCG3091ST is a gas cooktop available from LG. The LCG3091ST typically costs $1150 .

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on gas cooktop models like the LCG3091ST.


High-power burners:
The number of surface cooking burners rated at over 11,000 Btu/hr., maximum. High-power burners are good for quickly heating large quantities, searing, and other high-temperature cooking. Some also perform well on low-heat tasks (when turned to their low setting).

Medium-power burners:
The number of surface cooking burners with maximum output ratings over 6,500 Btu/hr but not more than 11,000 Btu/hr. Though they don't offer top speed and power, medium-power burners can generally handle all cooking tasks.

Low-power burners:
The number of surface cooking burners with maximum output ratings of 6,500 Btu/hr or less (sometimes called simmer burners). These are intended for delicate tasks such as sauces.

Tested Model
The Ratings of LG LSCG306ST were applied to untested model LG LCG3091ST, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.

Comment:
I like this cooktop but LG put cheap plastic knobs on it and this same knob is used on some of their other cooktops. I've had this cooktop about four years. Three of the five knobs are ready to fail and one already has. All have identical failure pattern. Two vertical cracks on the shaft 180 degrees apart. Knobs are around $30 each when including tax and shipping. A ripoff. Read online reviews at other sites and you will find that knob failure is a common and expensive problem.

More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Stay away from LG appliances. We bought all major appliances from LG and have nothing but trouble and LG thinks customer support ends with the minute they get your money.

Good High Heat Burner
Cons
Cheap Plastic Knobs
Front Burners Melt Knobs
Heat Stains Easily
Scratches With Cleaning
Best Uses
Comment:
have had about a year, rated well but with use easy to see it is cheaply made. Knobs are a engineering disgrace, if they aren't breaking on their own they melt. Difficult to impossible to clean scorch areas and burners have already chipped.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
