    "We replaced our old electric cooktop with the Electrolux EI36EC45KS and it looks elegant. I love how the burners can be adjusted according to the size of the pots. It doesn't have knobs so cleaning is easy. It comes at a hefty price as all cooktops do but its performance is great and worth every penny. "

    "All my appliances back in the day were Kenmore so I developed a sense of loyalty to the brand. The old gas cooktop that I had broke and so we purchased the Kenmore Elite cooktop. It heats up really fast and looks sleek and gorgeous. It's a great product and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. "

    "This cooktop is good, save for one reason. It heats up fast, is very easy to clean, and I love all the cooking presets so I don't have to manually set anything. However, the touch controls are really sensitive. Whenever something gets spilled by accident the light would go crazy and the burners would start flashing. I can't turn it off immediately when this happens and I need to wait for it to cool down. "

    "This cooktop is fantastic and it has a lot of features like timer, auto cook, panel lock, keep warm, etc. I've had it installed a month ago and I'm still amazed by how easy it is to use. I no longer worry about burning anything because this cooktop "knows" when it's overheating. Wonderful product. "

    "This cooktop heats up much quicker than our old one and cooks food evenly. I love the touch controls and the entire thing is slick and flat which makes it easy to clean. I actually worry about getting it scratched because it is such a beautiful appliance that I use only a microfiber towel to wipe it. Highly recommended!"

    "This cooktop is extremely fragile! It is really pretty but the third time I used it I noticed a tiny crack on the lower left part near the edge. Mind you I am NOT a clumsy person and I always take my time in the kitchen. That small crack eventually became bigger and I contacted the store for a replacement. They said it would take 2 weeks as they have a lot of installations to do. I am very upset. Do not buy this cooktop!"
