Buying this cooktop was the worst large-purchase decision I have ever made in my life! I absolutely hate this cooktop. Temperature Control This range takes so long to heat up! Boiling water is a task you must start about thirty minutes prior to actually wanting to cook. Do not mention if you are boiling a large amount of water because you will need an hour. Then once the water is heated, you cannot get it to stop boiling unless you turn off the heat for awhile and literally let the stove cool off. Heat Distribution Terrible heat distribution on this range. If you heat the front burner to high and the back burner to low, it seems as if the heat distributes from the front to the back causing the back to heat to medium instead of low. Durability It seems pretty durable, but I have not had it that long so I cannot truly attest to it's long term durability. Ease of Cleaning This cooktop is so hard to clean. If anything spills on it while you cook, you have to literally scrape it off. It always looks dirty and has what looks like water streaks on it.
