36" 5-Burner Gas Cooktop

Submitted by Sue - 9/24/2017

We recently renovated our 1970's kitchen, and this cooktop helped our antiquated space take on the attributes of the current century. After having an electric cook-top for the past 35 years, I was skepical about the tje efficency and ease of cleaning, but I have to say that I have fallen intantly in love with my new cook-top. It's easy to clean, gives me plenty of control...I don't have to wait until the burner cools down, and I can use my beloved cast-iron frying pans without the fear of scratching the surface.

Yes, I recommend this product

Submitted by Missy - 9/7/2017

This stove was new for my redesigned kitchen. It is gorgeous! It works great and the middle burner is my favorite for simmering soups and sauces. It cleans easily and is not too small for pots and pans like a lot of the other models I looked at. I love it!

Outstanding stove top

Submitted by Boiseboy - 8/4/2017

Had the stove top installed last week and am really impressed with the new features. So much more heat control over our previous stove. Each of the 5 burners can be set at many different heat making cooking so much easier. The ease of cleaning is a much added bonus too.

Yes, I recommend this product

Looks great and love the big burner in the middle!

Submitted by Prof Peb - 8/4/2017

We love this cook top - we bought this wall unit to replace an older unit and upgraded from a 30" to a 36". It looks nice and works great. The larger middle burner is a nice plus for quick boiling of water.

Looks expensive!!!

A solid piece, and very efficient, and easy to clean

Submitted by Coach - 6/18/2017

It is the best stove that I have ever owned. Burners work perfectly, and give you exactly what you ask for; either low or medium or High. A very solid unit as well; i believe it is actually made to last! Something you don't find too often these days!

Yes, I recommend this product

Great Range!

Works Great

Submitted by Max - 6/8/2017

It is great for cooking. Only fault i find is with the On-Off knob being very close to the front burner. You have to be careful not to turn the fire too high, you will be in danger of burning your fingers when you turn it off. It gets very hot.

Yes, I recommend this product

Two stars because it's pretty, but lacks any power

Submitted by Stacey - 6/7/2017

It looks nice, but it ends there. Highly disappointed. Right now I'm trying to boil two different pots for dinner, but that can't be done. The only burner that creates a proper boil is the largest, center one. (Even though I'm using appropriately sized pots to the burner). So now instead of having my dinner ready all at the same time. I will have to wait 12 minutes before I can cook something else that also needs to boil on the center burner. Beyond frustrating!! It's basically 4, medium/low burners and 1 center one that will get hot on full blast. I was really excited for a nice, new, beautiful gas range. But this one makes me miss my 10+ year old basic electric stove top.

No, I do not recommend this product

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Malevets - 5/23/2017

KCGS556ESS is a beautiful looking cook top. Unfortunately it does not ignite very easily and worst, it does not boil water quick enough to cook pasta. Other reviewers have said the same. I tried calling customer service only to get the run around and no one seems to know the answer. One person would pass me on to the next only to be put on hold. Finally, one lady said I would have to pay for some service guy to come out to fix it. KitchenAid, please read this carefully. This is essentially a brand new cook top, so I don't believe there is anything wrong with it, other than the fact that the design is flawed. I live in CO, so maybe do some experiments to see how your burner behaves at higher altitude, lower air pressure.

No, I do not recommend this product

Cooktop works just as we thought it would

Not worth it

Submitted by MC - 5/21/2017

We purchased our home in December 2016, within two weeks there was rust on two of the burners. I contacted customer service and was advised is was cosmetic and it would be covered since we were within 30 days. After the 30 days, you are responsible for any repairs. I'm thinking and told the customer service representative that we paid too much money for the this stove to be having issues this soon. We should have longer than 30 days for the warranty. If the stove was built well, we should not be having cosmetic issues within a few weeks. Fast forward to today, a piece of the rack broke. The stove wasn't hot, we were about to wipe it off after letting it cool down, so there is no reason why iron steel would simply break off. We have been in our home for 5 months and have had nothing but problems with the stove. The stainless steel developed a stain and I only used a damp cloth to clean the stove. The refrigerator and dishwasher were problems as well. I am so disappointed with the quality of the appliances, especially the stove. Kitchen aid need to do better.

No, I do not recommend this product

Not worth it

Submitted by 5150JZ - 5/15/2017

The cooktop was pre-installed in the home I purchased and at first I was skeptical about the quality, but after reviewing the features and using the cooktop, I'm convinced this is the best cooktop available.

Yes, I recommend this product

Beautiful, easy to use

Submitted by OC resident - 5/10/2017

I love this cooktop! It is easy to use and clean, very modern looking. Even though it is not black stainless it still fits in nice with the other black stainless products from this line. My only complaint is that it is not always easy to know when the burner is on. There is no light or other notification so I sometimes feel that I have to double check to make sure the burners are completely off. Nevertheless, I would still recommend this to anyone.

Yes, I recommend this product

Easy to clean and looks great

Looks beautiful, functions poorly

Submitted by SMT970 - 5/8/2017

We built a brand new home and purchased this range for our kitchen. It looks beautiful, but does not perform well. In order to boil water I have to use the largest, center burner on the highest setting, and even with that it is just a low boil. The other burners barely get a boil and I find pasta will get soggy before it properly cooks, (unless I use the center burner). The flame seems inconsistent and I can hear it flickering, as if the gas is sputtering. Sadly, I find myself missing our 10-year-old electric range in our rental home, which performed much better than this. I was really excited to start using gas, and to have a brand new, nice range, unfortunately this did not deliver.

No, I do not recommend this product

Fantastic cooktop!
