Easy To Clean
Heats Up Quickly
Large Surface Area
I switched from gas to a smooth-top electric for ease of clean up, as my range sits under the microwave, and all the crumbs, splashes, etc. now only need to be cleaned from one surface. For that, I absolutely love it!<br /><br />I can simmer things like tomato sauce at a consistently lower temperature without excessive splattering. There's a learning curve to using a stove-top griddle, however. The burners on all brands of smoothtops are at angles from each other, so you must turn the griddle sideways a bit. I wish the smooth-top industry as a whole would place the largest burners at the rear, because when you pan-fry, the unavoidable grease splatters go on the floor (and you, to a certain extent!), rather than the cooktop. <br /><br />The oven heats quickly and has a buzzer to let you know that it has reached the desired temperature; nice! Oven temp automatically comes on at 350, and can be raised in increments of 5 degrees. Similar feature with timer. Large window on oven door, and bright light comes on automatically each time you open the door. <br /><br />As far as I can tell, the heating temps are accurate and maintaned well. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
