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.

I've been using this appliance for the last month and i am very happy with the purchase. It is easy to use, turn on and increase or decrease the temperature. The knobs are designed well and look appealing. The metal grill is solid and the appliace is easy to clean.

Surface issues

Manager 7/11/2017

We recently moved into a newly built home and I was happy to hear that this cooktop was to be installed from the bullder. We have only cooked on it twice and yesterday after using the Whirlpool recommended cleaning product my Allfresh we have noted several scratches that more than likely occurred during install and are now awaiting warranty response. Our fears are that it scratches very easily and much care must be taken when cleaning.

The 36 inch 5 Burner Gas Cooktop with EZ-2-Lift™ Hinged Cast-Iron Grates came standard with our new construction home. So far we have been pleased with the cooktop's performance. There is plenty of cooking space with the 5 burners. My only complaint is the knob turns from ignite to high flame vs ignite to low flame.

Good cooktop but WORST knobs I have ever seen!!!!

Akhil lucky 5/11/2017

The cooktop by itself is good but the knobs are made of worst quality. In just under 18 months 4 out of 5 knobs are broken and spin 360 degrees. Manufacturers should have paid attention on the design of the knobs since it is a very thin D shaped metal cover with ultra thin plastic around it. The knobs are super expensive to be replaced as well. I wish whirlpool does something before they lose customers like me who like their range of products.

Good cooktop, bad knobs

ChefDad 5/2/2017

I want to like the cooktop. The grates are well made and it's a good look. The only issue I have is the knobs. Out of five knobs, four are broken within a year. Upon closer inspection, the connection between the valve and the knob is a thin metal sleeve, encased in shiny plastic. Once the metal sleeve is loosened, which happens as you remove knobs for cleaning, it will spin in the plastic housing and break it. Now, I have one working knob. Ridiculous. And replacement knobs are $25 each! Not pleased.

Cooktop is good but inefficient to use.

dmandyam 3/29/2017

The grates are so high up and the distance between the burner and the grate is about 2.5 inches. This makes it difficult to heat anything and takes a long time. There is heat all around the pan rather than on the pan itself and we always need to cook on high for the flames to heat up the pan. Inefficient and wastes a lot of gas and time. We previously were cooking on an electric cooktop and this one takes more time than the electric one. Otherwise the cooktop works good. They need to rework the design such that the grate and burners are not more than 1 or 1.5 inch apart.

Bob 3/22/2017

Easy to install even with minor cutting of existing counter top opening. Had to make LP gas changes before installation. Would have been nice if the proper sized screw driver had been included for flame adjustments. Had difficulty finding one at the local tool stores. Love the flip up Grates. Makes cleaning the range much easier by not having to totally remove heavy grates or marking up the counter when placing them on it during cleaning.

Cheryl 3/8/2017

I haven't used the stovetop much yet, just moved into our new house, but looks neat, and I love that the knobs are placed top of stove then on the front side, wish we had that on our previous stove with our other 3 kids, but at least we have this feature for our 4th baby. Just wish the middle burner is more rectangular and horizontal, so that it might work best for griddles.

Brilliant cooktop!!

Brenda from Flatbush 12/12/2016

I shopped, researched, and shopped some more for the perfect cooktop, and am thrilled with this one. After years of limping along with a weakling gas cooktop that could barely poach a pot of pasta or sizzle a stir-fry, I wanted at least 1 burner with 5-figures' worth of BTUs...gas, of course...5 burners but not crammed too close together...and not impossible to clean. This one meets every requirement (well, our exact model # WCG97US0DS, but this is one digit off and looks identical). The middle power burner heats a huge pot of water in under 10 minutes to a wildly rolling boil, and the simmer burner can keep butter melted without burning at its lowest--fantastic "range" for a range. Knobs are nice and substantial, and remove easily for cleaning. Steel surface cleans up very easily with a "Magic Sponge." Best of all is the hinged gates--solid construction, great design, and one I found with no other range. Love this thing! Only 1 minor caveat: The cast-iron grilles have sloping edges that can let a pot or pan start to slide off if you don't place them right on center.
