Comment:
We commonly have to turn gas on multiple times before the electronic ignition actually lights. repeated repair calls have not fixed this problem. And while the star burners look very cool, they are very difficult to clean.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Family of four use. Gets so hot causes Corian counter top to constantly crack around opening. Took DuPont 15 warranty visits over 10 years to finally design a heat sink that stopped the damage. Now needs to be overhauled to the tune of over 1000.00. Igniter system shot, all assembled parts seized and need to be cut out. It cooks well but at what cost long term?

The pan was already replaced once just after installation. The pan scratches very easily and hasn't proven to be easy to maintain. <br /><br />Otherwise this product seems fine, though it is not inexpensive.
