Bought this cooktop because I thought it would be easy to keep clean. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I have used different types of skillets, saucepans, and pots and all leave black spots all over the burner areas. Even the skillet that came with the cooktop leaves spots. Since we just remodeled our entire kitchen, it is disappointing that I spent the money for a Kenmore elite and got something that is so difficult to keep clean
This is the same model as the black/stainless Kenmore Elite (http://www.sears.com/kenmore-elite-30inch-electric-cooktop/p-02244273000P?prdNo=2&blockNo=2&blockType=G2) but in a white finish. I bought this because I, wanted a white, smooth cooktop that had no dials. Installation was fairly simple (ensure you have a 40A rated breaker/wire - preferably a modern 4-wire connection). I read reviews that stated the cooktop did not sit flush on the counter. Mine is essentially flush with one corner ever so slightly above the counter. If you had concerns about food getting in the crevice, you could also run a very fine bead of silicone around the perimeter. I really like the push buttons, child lock, timer, hot zone indicator, and multiple zones on two burners. Also, this unit heats up really fast compared to my old model. Read the directions about cleaning because it repeatedly warns specifically about sugar spills and damage to the top! I'm really happy with the cook top, even though I though it was quite pricy!
