Comment:
After maybe 8 years of good service, one of the small burners will not ignite anymore. You can smell the propane gas and you can see the igniter spark but it just doesn't ignite. We have to use a match or cigarette lighter to get it to burn. I believe the 5 arm star gets distorted from the heat over time. It does not sit tightly on top of the burner and can be jiggled around. All of the other 5 arm stars sit tight on top of the burner.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
The control to make perfect scrambled eggs for 8 people, or boil water so fast with the center burners.<br /><br />The only con, is that they put these rubber stoppers and brass rings on the bottom of the grates preventing you from putting them in the self clean oven for a deep clean. So I coat them with oven cleaner, let them set then throw into the dishwasher.

Comment:
I replaced a 20-year old cooktop with this one, and wish I had done it sooner. It's a vast improvement and works very well. Yes, it does take some work to keep it looking good, but the effort is worth it; it's a beautiful appliance.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
