Description

This KitchenAid cooktop combines efficiency and aesthetics. Its 5 burners are controlled by sleek knobs with built-in LED indicator lights. The 10,000-BTU Even-Heat burner delivers a soft flame for delicate simmering or a larger, more intense flame that distributes powerful heat throughout the pan surface for even cooking. The 17,000-BTU dual ring burner offers plenty of versatility, from a small flame for precise simmering to a powerful dual flame for quick boiling. The stainless steel surface has a permanent CookShield finish, which protects your cooktop from spills and stains, you can avoid using chemicals to clean it. The electronic ignition system eliminates the need to maintain a pilot flame and offers considerable energy savings. Should the flame go out while you're cooking, it's automatically reignited thanks to the automatic reignition feature.
  • Even-Heat(TM) 10K BTU torch burner features an exclusive design that provides a small flame for delicate simmering and a larger one that distributes high heat across the whole pan for more even cooking
  • 20K BTU Professional dual ring burner allows you to go from one small flame for precise simmering to a dual flame for powerful boiling, all on the same burner
  • CookShield Finish helps protect your cooktop from spills and stains that may occur with high-temperature cooking- the permanent finish makes it easy to wipe the cooktop clean without harsh chemicals so it looks clean and bright longer
  • Lighted knobs deliver a beautiful accent with pleasant LED lights that let you know when the burner is in use
  • Even-Heat(TM) 6K BTU simmer burner - a diffuser plate allows more control of the flame at the lowest setting, for more precise simmering and melting
  • Removable griddle provides a one-piece flat surface that's ideal for making a range of dishes from crepes to quesadillas
  • Electronic ignition and automatic re-ignition - lights burners with an electric spark instead of a pilot light - for more reliable performance, burners are relit if the flame is blown out
  • Full-width cast-iron grates- enhance the beautiful look of the cooktop and allow easy movement of cookware around the entire cooking surface
  • LP conversion kit allows you to convert the cooktop to liquid propane with ease

KitchenAid Gas Cooktop - 5 Burners - 36-in - 20,000 BTU - Stainless Steel is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 330.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Functional [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Has been a joy to cook on. The different burners give lots of options to obtain perfect cooking temperatures. The center griddle pan is awesome for even teens to cook their own quesadillas, grill cheese, pancakes etc... and the pan cleans up very easily and quickly. I like the lighted knobs as I sometimes leave burners on especially after simmering and there is a low flame. I also like the ignition going to High first and then around to low; it just makes sense. My former Kitchenaid cooktop lasted 18 years and was only replaced because of water damage so I hope this new one lasts as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why Didn’t We Do This Sooner? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When my husband and I decided to upgrade our kitchen, it also meant switching from electric to gas cooking…finding a gas plumber, trekking to City Hall for a permit, and waiting for inspections, but SO WORTH THE WAIT!! We now have the KitchenAid KCGS956ESS, a 36”, 5 burner cooktop which gives us a variety of burners, it’s easy to keep clean, and did I mention it came with a griddle! Cooking now is fun and no longer a juggling act of shuffling pans on and off of electric burners. We are thrilled to have made this investment in our home. Thank you KitchenAid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durabilitiy and design [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After much research I purchased the 5-burner Gas Cooktop and griddle. What impressed me were the materials and design that suggest durability and esthetics. I have not been disappointed. The griddle has become our go to pancake maker and the center burner has already done yeoman service as heat for canning peaches and large pasta pots. The elaborate flame pattern on the right-front burner (two separate settings) works perfectly for heating water for hot-cereal and then leaving it to simmer on the lowest setting. Also, the continuous grate is easily removable for cleaning beneath it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Burner Cooktop [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like our KitchenAid Double Oven, it's hard to leave an objective review for others looking at this product, as our experience with it is limited. I will say that the center burner was a great feature when heating water for canning, the other burners have certainly been functional and easy to use. We are trying to adjust to the left front burner as it seems to be a high flame only setting. Good for heating liquid based items, such as soups and rice. it is nice having 5 burners over 4, but it gets really tight trying to fit them all on when doing meal prep.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure what this means. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I know I'm still in the learning curve and probably should have researched this particular selection better for our new kitchen. Maybe my older eyesight makes reading the knob control information is part of my problem. I though the information packet could have been written better with regards to the intended uses of the different burner types. The burner grates seem to get moved off of their intended position easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5-Burner Gas Cooktop with Griddle [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Do't buy the cooktop for the griddle. We tried it once, but it is so small, not worth the effort, but otherwise, the cooktop is great. It produces nice strong burner BTUs and also low levels good for melting and simmering. We do have, as others have noted, a bit on tight space with all 5 burners having pots and the pots crowd..but we do not do that too often. The lit rings about the knobs that light up are loose, and may need to contact the vendor to see how we can glue it back so it does not move around. the ring light is aesthetics but for as much as we paid, the ring should not be loose. I would also consider knobs in the front or side vs. in the front.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice butt..... Just got this installed and like it quite a bit. I would suggest a design change though, swap the 2 left burners from front to back so the big one doesn't heat up the controls area. I like that this is made in the USA but was disappointed to see the sticker about that was placed over a small scratch in the finish, so it wouldn't be seen by Quality Control? - Made on line 62 date 9/29/2020 (knocked 2 stars off Quality for that). Also like others have mentioned, it's difficult to see the control labels due to the way it's etched/printed in a color that is almost identical to the stainless. (knocked 1 star design for this and the left burner positions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the options for burners [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this last month for our new construction home. Previously had the 30” 5 burner cooktop in our previous home and it worked week so a natural option to select the 36” model. Way more options with the burners which is nice. Haven’t burnt anything yet using our caphalon stainless so we must be figuring it out. One issue is the markings for the burners are very faintly printed so it’s a bit of an issue until we learn the cooktop. The stainless cleans up very nicely and it’s not a polished stainless so it doesn’t show smears when cleaning which is a plus for me when cleaning.
