Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

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.

Great but not perfect

Shannon 1/10/2017

I've been using this cook top for 2 1/2 years now. The only two complaints I have are: 1. The large round burner on the left definitely doesn't match up with the knobs level of heat. All the other ones do. I have to look at the flames for the large round burner to determine whether it's at a simmer, low, med or high heat. 2. I wish the knobs came off so that I can clean more thoroughly.

Decent performance, some drawbacks

NC Mama 6/24/2016

I've been using this cooktop for almost two years. As far as heating is concerned, it is fairly efficient. Certainly the dials and burners are easy to use. My biggest issues are related to cleaning. The stainless is difficult to clean if you let a spill dry. Also, after a few cleanings, the text started to wash off the surface, so some dials no longer read high, medium, or low.

Cooks Good but Bad Design

SC 10/27/2015

This was an upgrade for a new home we purchased. At the bottom of grates, there are rubber feet so the grating does not scratch the stainless inset. After 3 months of use the rubber feet started melting and the stainless inset is now scratched. Whirlpool states there is no fix, the worker whom came out to the house looked at the cook top and gave us more rubber feet but the same thing happened. After 10 months of owning the house, Whirlpool states that it is past the one year warranty and there is nothing that they are obligated to do. I gave this product overall a poor rating (one star) due to it's design flaw and the fact that Whirlpool states there is no fix.

Alrighty then

Waitnsee 10/25/2015

Our initial purchase was a year ago. We used the cooktop once or twice a week at the very most. Within a couple of months of use, the composite material that forms a buffer between the burner gratings and the stainless steel cooktop surface melted. The heat transferred from the gratings to the surface resulted in a severe discoloration of the stainless steel. Because the (1) damage did not affect the operation of the cooktop (referred to as "an aesthetic problem" by Whirlpool) and (2) the product failure did not occur within the 30-day warranty period from the date of purchase, replacing the cooktop not covered by the warranty. No "if's and or but's." "Too bad, so sad to be you" was the attitude at Whirlpool. So, we were stuck with a deeply discolored stainless steel surface in a brand new kitchen or purchasing a replacement at our cost. We sucked purchased a new cooktop . . . and have been assured the composite material on the new cooktop will not fail. We are now outside the 30-day period warranty period once again. With limited use, so far so good. We'll see.

Whirlpool Gold 36-inch gas cooktop -- fabulous

claudinejt 9/23/2015

I was nervous to buy this signt unseen, but the deal was too good to pass up. I am thrilled with the longer top burner and the controls at the front, which make for ease of use. It looks great and is a much higher-grade/professional cooktop than I had expected.

Poor Cooktop Grill Design

Andy 8/28/2015

I bought this two years ago and while I have enjoyed cooking on the range, the design of the Grills that mount above the burners is poor. I have had them replaced twice and the problem keeps recurring. They 3 grill pieces have small rubber caps where they touch the stainless steel surface to prevent scratching. These fall out during the first cleaning. There is no way to keep from scratching the surface of the range once they fall out. I called with the issue and was sent and entire new set whose feet then fell out within a week.

Whirlpool Warranty Worthless

Jenny 7/30/2015

My cooktop is less than 1 year old. I clean it with Dawn and Windex. The print next to the knobs showing "Off Low High" etc. is coming off. Whirlpool claims this is "cosmetic" and not covered by their warranty. Buyer beware of Whirlpool and their "warranty".

I do like the simmer feature on the cooktop but wish the burner had the ability to be raised for cooking sauces and such... I really enjoy the long burner in back for family Sunday brunch! So easy to cook French toast, pancakes and if you have the right griddle you can make simple omlet for three people at the same time. This was a good find very happy we bought it.

Best Gas Burner I've ever used!

Best features about this Cooktop are the 2 Powerburners and Ease of cleaning. The Power Burners bring water to a boil in no time flat. The ease of pulling the grates off and cleaning the cook top, makes this the best unit I've ever used.

Great Cooktop

cftup2921 12/9/2014

This cook-top has all the desirable features for cooking and cleaning. It provides fast, even heat on all burners. There are adequate sizes and choices of burners and they are well spaced for safely cooking multiple items. It is super easy to clean; everything comes off and can be washed or put in a dish washer. It's easy to restore to service after cleaning. The grates are heavy duty and will take a heavy pot without bending, and it looks great! Our friends admire it and I don't hesitate to recommend it.

I bought this gas cooktop over 2 months ago and love it for the easy of cooking. I had missed the great benefit of controlling the temperature on a gas cooktop over my previous electric cooktop. The flex power burner is great to use for those times I need quick controllable heat. It is not only stylist but easy to clean with great that are easy to remove. It puts the fun back into cooking!

36" Gas Cooktop

sp330i 7/21/2014

Great option in lieu of electric. The electric ignition appears to work for all burners when turning on one. I hope that doesn't mean there is only one ignition source. I have propane and the burner's work great - but I'm not certain the installer installed the correct valves for each. Some burn blue, one burns blue and yellow. It is sometimes difficult to know if the burner caps are installed square to the burner. If not, the flame is not symetrical. The caps should be "keyed" to only fit one way.

Donp 7/28/2013

We down sized our house and our cook top from a six burner with griddle professional style to the current Whirlpool cooktop. At first we though that it would be inadequate for the Italian family dinners and summer gatherings at our house. The cooktop and double oven, also Whirlpool, have proven to be more than capable to handle the task. It lights easily, has even cooking and the clean up is a snap.

A Cooktop fro the serious cook!!!

Redhead1969 5/27/2013

This cooktop is GREAT!!! From the minute we opened the box to the final polishing the unit was a breeze to install and setup. The oval center burner is great from cooking on a grill or in a oval roast pot. The heat is consistant across the whole grill or pot The level cast iron grates makes it a breeze to move your pots from the different burners as you are cooking without having to lift them They are a breeze to keep clean!!! Having the additional hieght between the burner and the grates avoids hot spots in the pots and very little if any overflow while cooking. If you love to cook then this is the cooktop you will also love.

We are absolutely enjoying our new Whirlpool GoldŽ 36-inch Gas Cooktop with 17,000 BTU Flex Power? Burner. We all love to cook in my home, and everyone has found the burner features meet a wide variety of cooking needs - from very low simmer to the high BTU burner output for large pots and stir-frys. Easy ignition and very good burner control, plus it is a very easy surface to clean - it always looks just like new.
