KitchenAid Celebrating a Century Rebate

Offer Expires: 9/26/2019 to 12/31/2019 Must be postmarked by: 1/30/2020

Receive up to a $1600 rebate with purchase of qualifying KitchenAid Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 1/30/2020.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis.

But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Ultra high burners are quick heating and the 5-burner feature makes meal preparation a breeze.

Beautiful cooktop

sakb 5/2/2019

I am enjoying this cooktop. I have been very careful with it since other reviews said it scratched easily. I have not had any issues thus far. One knob does turn on opposite of the other- have to pay attention. I have not found that having 5 burners were necessary. Would probably just go with 4 like I had before if I had it to do over again. Seems to take a lot longer to heat up what I am cooking, but not a problem.

Love the 5 burners

Alpatt 5/1/2019

I bought this to replace a 15 year old, 4 burner version. I love the 5 burners and the ability to vary the heat distribution based in pan size. Once thing that could be vetted is the knob control visuals. Hard to see.

High performance, poor design

MattK 2/13/2019

This cooktop heats quickly and gets hotter than other brands I have owned. I'm only giving it 2 stars because of the wobbly knobs that feel like they are going to break any day, and the inconsistent controls that force you to "read" the cooktop every time you use the front burners. The 3 back burner controls are no problem. They all operate in the same direction, meaning High is in the 7 o-clock position and you turn the knob to the right to go to Low, at the 5 o'clock position. This is backwards (most cooktop knobs rotate to the right to get hotter) but you can get used to this. The real issue is the controls for the 2 front burners. They are totally opposite of each other in terms of the dual burner function and which way you rotate them to go hotter!!! Why on earth would KitchenAid do this??? Zoom in on the picture of the controls to see what I'm talking about. The bottom line is you have read the controls every time you turn on (or adjust) one of the front burners.

Wink1981 1/21/2019

Bought this during my kitchen remodel and love it. I would have given it a 5-star if the glass top didn't scratch so easily. But I've learned to wipe off both the cooktop and the bottom of my pans before putting them on the cooktop
