Stove grill

Seems like the grill sits to high for burners to be efficient . Takes along time for pots and pans to heat up.

almost great

1/9/2017

It looks terrific and the grates allow any pan to be slid to another burner. The only problem: the right rear burner on the lowest setting (melt as in melt butter) does not go low enough. Soups etc. continue to boil. I will need to find some type of extension to sit on the grate to raise any pot so that things will not burn.

Love it, except

1/2/2017

I just installed the cook top 2 weeks ago. I love the grates and the speed of the center burner. The only thing that I don't like is that each burner can only be turned so low. The simmer burner, right rear, boils when turned as low as possible (it called melt).
