Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Easy Cooking with fast temperature response time.

RWH 1/5/2017

This replaced a 17 year old cooktop that was another brand due to a kitchen remodel that included a new quartz counter top. The controls on the Maytag cooktop are easy to use for either single or dual element, and the temperature response time is vastly improved from the old one, making cooking easier.

Won't live up to expectations...

JoMa 11/6/2016

THE GOOD - Installed this Feb 2015 and was very happy with the way it looked on our island. Nearly 2-years later, we haven't had any performance issues. Only option was electric and this product seemed to be the best price/performance mix at the time of purchase. THE JUST OK - While the cooktop has not stopped working and we haven't issues with operation, it does take a very long time to heat up your foods and brutally long to boil water. If you are used to cooking with gas, you will not be super happy with this type of cooktop. If you cook often with a lot of pans, the small front burners could be better placed as sometime pans to fit as you want. ALSO - as other reviewers have stated, you have to be very committed in order to keep this thing clean. I'm sure this is the nature of this type of product, but if you cook a lot, know you will be cleaning a lot. THE BAD - Glass cooktop chipped and a large crack has occurred near the knob location. Sure, we must of caused it, but neither cook in the house can remember when the chip/crack happened. Note - the warranty won't cover this type of accidental coverage and there is NO fix for this type of issue. My reasoning for a 2-star review is simply the lack of either a better design (full frame) or warranty coverage makes purchasing this cooktop a high-risk proposition.

works as expected

JM 11/5/2016

Have only been using it for a few weeks but so far, so good. Love the flexibility of the two dual-size burners as well as the fifth burner that is handy for keeping things warm. Heats up fast! I dislike the fact that the black surface shows every bit of lint, dust, or smudge but that's not a function of the cooktop. The knobs arrived scuffed, but I haven't yet asked the appliance store about replacing them so I can't comment on that. One feature I have to get used to is the way the knobs turn. They don't have an arrow or lined indicator on them so I find myself sometimes turning to "single" burner rather than "dual" and vice versa. (I took one star off the "ease of use" category because of that.) But I will become accustomed to that in time. I didn't rate the "sound levels" for this since there aren't any to speak of.

nice but hard to keep clean

cds 9/19/2016

heats fairly well and quickly on larger burners. Smaller burner take a long time. Capacity is great but have a hard time having five pots on it at once. Scratches very easily and has to be continuously cleaned since it shows every bit of dust and finger print

We purchased the 36 inch cooktop a couple of months ago to replace an ancient Thermador cooktop. The solid surface cooktop heats up quickly and the dual units match the pan sizes exactly.

Good cooktop

Nag 5/15/2016

So far so good. Some features missing are hot surface indicator for each burner and knobs indicator which side is on or off. May be move biggest burner to front and move one small one to back side.

Works

Patricia 4/27/2016

I bought this cooktop to replace an Amana cooktop. Works ok, but the quality is not the best, the price is good, the burner in the middle for warm is a waste of space, the two lateral burners are two small for medium pans. There should be one medium in one side. So far, so good. I missed I used to have an indicator of which burner was hot and not only one who indicates there is a burner that is hot. the switch doesn't indicate a number, I missed that too. I saw better ones, but more expensive and that occupy more space in width. That one is ok.

Looks Great!

Patti 9/17/2015

Love the way the cook top looks in my kitchen island. And was glad we could also get a vent to go with it that could be vented under the house. My only disappointment was with the warming burner. The first time I used it, it almost burned what was in the pan - it is 'too hot' to be called a warmng burner.

Looks and work great.

Novice cook 4/3/2015

An attractive stove top with nice features. The dual element on two burners is a nice feature. Cleaning is more difficult than I thought it would be. If food gets cooked onto the glass it takes some serious scrubbing to remove it. Overall, a good unit.

Nice but hard to keep clean and uneven heating

mercer 4/30/2014

We have had our unit about four months and to date it has functioned OK. Heating seems to take much longer than our old unit. Still figuring out the different settings and heating elements. We do find it is hard to keep the black unit clean but the cleaning kit provided does a great job!!!!
