I absolutely love this stove. It works incredibly well. I wasn't positive that I would be totally happy with it, but it has totally exceeded my expectations! Temperature Control It took me a little while to get used to the temperature controls because it seems to run hotter than my old stove. Once I figured out exactly how everything heated up I was very happy with this stove. Heat Distribution I think this stove heats very evenly. The burners heat up under the glass and they appear to be lighting up evenly. Also, when cooking it seems that the pans all heat up evenly all the way across. There are no hot spots where food burns, or a hot side of the pan like on my old stove. Durability So far, so good! I have found this stove to be very durable. I was a little worried about the glass top, how durable it would be but it's stood up to a bit of abuse so far with no problems at all. Ease of Cleaning I've found this to be very easy to clean. It's so nice that the top is flat! Wiping it down is so much simpler without any burner pans to take out and clean!
