The multiple burners offer individual power settings to give you the most accurate temperatures.

Love it - love it - love it!! We needed to replace our 4-burner stove top which was embedded in a 30-inch cut-out in a Granite countertop. I wanted and needed more burners but did not want the hassle of cutting the Granite nor did I want to loose counter space to accomodate a 36-inch stove-top. I wanted a quick, EASY solution. This worked out PERFECT!!! My favorite part is the 5th burner in the middle - it boils a large pot of water quicker than I ever imagined! If you are in a situation like ours - this is a perfect quick-fix and to our surprise, a true upgrade. The entire stove-top (each and every burner) works and operates more superior than our previous Jenn-Aire did. I do not have a problem with space because if I am using all the burners - I just turn the handles to the outside. We just couldn't be happier.
I would not recommend this product to anyone. We bought it one month ago and one of the burner is already not working. However, it looks very nice. I never had issues with kenmore until I bought this cooktop. My dishwasher, oven, washer, dryer and refrigerator are all kenmore and did not have to have one service call. Very dissapointed with this cooktop.

Bought this unit on September 9, 2014 to replace a Jenn-air cooktop. I measured and remeasured so as to ensure that it would fit the existing cut out in the granite. Oops, the existing cut out is square but this cooktop is curved . In addition the measurements given on the template are from the widest part of the cooktop(the middle) meaning that gaps exist at the corners, which are curved. I had it installed anyway with the intent of having a template made to fit the opening and have the cooktop sit on the template. Found a fill plate made expressively for this function, priced at $120.00. Until I order and have it installed there is a 1/4 inch gap at the rear between the cooktop and the backsplash. Insofar as the appearance of the cooktop is concerned, my wife and I both love it. I wanted the unit in black but it is not available. Having cooked on downdraft before I am aware that the flame and heat is pulled toward the fan. On this unit there is a rubber boot, at the center grate, that prevent the draft from being so great . This allows for better concentration of heat under the utensil . There was a trade off in that the previous cooktop had a modular grill unit meaning we only had two eyes to cook on, I did not purchase the $350.00 replacement module. My wife really likes having four eyes WHICH are sized for cooking function/temp. I did research and almost went with another Jenn-air but the owner ratings swayed me to the Kenmore elite and I feel that I made the right choice.

Very happy with this cooktop - it has been installed and in use for over 6 months and absolutely no problems. I love the 5 burners and I do not feel it is crowded. I also have not had any issues with the knobs - I was concerned about the placement and coming in contact with hot pans, this is not the case and has not been an issue. Knobs are also very durable.
I read in the directions not to use a sponge that scratches, but my husband went behind my back and decided to clean the stove and now my brand new stove has scratches on it. Shouldn't stainless steel be stronger than this???
We love the new Kenmore cooktop, especially the variety of burners and particularly the dual ring burner. However the outside dimensions for the cooktop do not tell you that the left & right front edges taper away from the 21.75 inch; front to back dimension. This presented a problem for us since we were trying to cover an existing opening in a granite island. Needed to add a stainless surround to cover the opening.
I couldn't take my Kenmore Pro 6 burner with me when I moved and I hated the builder grade 4 burner in the new house. This is the next best thing--5 burners, fit exactly in the existing slot with no cutting, and I get my power burner, double burner with simmer and knobs in the front. I just wish it was a little wider for large pots.
This is such a great cooktop. I love that it has 5 burners, it replace one that had 4. Easy to use, fires up very quickly. The grates are a little hard to clean though. Overall very pleased.
