Finally got the stovetop installed. had to convert from electric to gas. I like it so far however when I was looking to purchase I wanted the knobs to be all on the right side.

Stunningly beautiful

I have had this cooktop for a couple of months now. It looks nice but the controls function poorly making it difficult to use. The first 50% of burner control range does not reduce the flame at all. Almost all of the flame control is limited to the lower 10% of knob range. This lack of control makes this product a poor choice. What is sad is that a better selection of control (relatively minor part) would have made this a much better product.

Hope it works!

This is a new product for KitchenAid, so I took a chance as I have had downdraft systems before (Dacor.) We vented to the outside of home, so you will need appropriate venting system in addition to cooktop. Not crazy about the loose placement of the grill in vent area. Also, we had a faulty ignitor and are currently waiting for the replacement part. Have to light manually, but the burners work just fine. I think I am going to like it. For the price compared to Dacor, Wolfe, and other high end cooktops, it seems to be just as functional. Have not finished hooking up vent system until part arrives for ignition.
