Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!I have had this cooktop for about 4 months as a replacement for an electric cooktop. Love it! Cooking on this gas cooktop makes me feel like a gourmet cooker. It is a bit tedious on the clean up but worth it because of the look it gives to the kitchen. To the reviewer that complained about the discoloration on the stovetop after the first cooking. You do have to ensure that the burner caps are in place. If the burner caps are not set properly, you will notice an uneven flame this will cause a brown or burnt looking discoloration on the stainless steel to the side. Turn off the burner and wait till it cools to reset the burner cap (you know it is in place if when you try to move it from side to side you can not) . If you do get discoloration use the bar keeper friends to remove (not permanent like another reviewer said, as long as you clean in a timely manner).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT!!!It is a beauty to look at. But that's only the beginning. The flame levels of the burners let you cook at precise levels no matter which burner you use and the largest burner has two flame setting which are great. I love it!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love cooking on gas againBought this Benchmark cooktop when we remodeled our kitchen 6 months ago. We had a Bosch oven before we moved and missed cooking on gas. This cooktop doesn't disappoint. We love the space between the burners, the quick response with gas, and easy cleanup- although cleaning an electric smooth top was easier, but not worth the difference in cooking. Only thing I was disappointed in was that the knobs don't remove for cleaning.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not satisfied due to knobs getting heated upWe picked Bosch appliances for our new home including this cooktop. After 15-25 minutes of use, the knobs get heated up . In addition to the knobs, heat is spreading to the granite countertop as well. I have called in to Customer support and it's been a battle for last 4 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love to cook on gas cooktopsMy wife is a passionate chef. We love cooking on gas. Before we decided on a cook-top, we looked at the high end Thermador : SGSX365FS 36 Masterpiece Gas Cooktop Stainless . What made this gas cook-top famous is the simmering, (low flame) of 250 BTU. It has also a star shaped burner, that heats uniformly. Thermador is number one rated in gas cooktop in Consumer Reports and the model is at least three years old. The reliability of this high end appliance 8 in a 100 (according to consumer reports) There is a video on how to clean a Thermador. Search youtube. It requires a toothpick (careful not to break it when cleaning the burner) cotton swabs and lots of patience. Considering cleaning after each use... For some reason, Bosch cooktops are not reviewed on Consumer Reports. But in the reliability graph of Thermador, Bosch cooktops are #1 with 4 in 100 failures. The model Bosch NGM8055UC800 30" Stainless Steel Gas Sealed Burner Cooktop has 18,000 BTU maximum flame ans 550 BTU simmering and costs less than a half then Thermador. Many people may buy this cooktop for being just beautiful, but it is easy to clean and twice as reliable as Thermador The Bosch NGMP655UC: 36" Gas Cooktop Benchmark started selling since April 2016. It is an absolute beauty, with a central burner that gives 20,000 BTU maximum flame that goes to a minimum of 400 BTU simmering. I don't think any human will notice the difference from 400 BTU to 250 BTU in real life.And this model is 40% lower priced than Thermador. Please watch the video on how to clean it and compare Then there is the emotional reaction. The installer - who installed almost all models of appliances was evidently impressed with the Bosch Benchmark model.This cooktop. changed our kitchen without changing anything else. Nobody knows the future. But the feeling of exhilaration and sheer pleasure that an object can bring you home the joy of having something new. The only other company that has similar success in User Design. is Apple computer. You don't want a restaurant gas cooktop. Because your home is not a restaurant. You want finesse, beauty and ability to cook anything the restaurant cooks with the same precision and taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Gas cooktop I have ever ownedI bought this back in June and waited patiently until my new house was built before I could use it. This was by far the ONE. I did all my research to select a brand that was going to do it right the first time. I have been bitten before with many other brands and stopped trying to find a cheaper option. If I just went with quality the first time it would of saved me thousands. Next year we are yanking all our Kitchen Aid appliances and replacing them with Bosch. I have never owned a range that actually keeps its self clean. All the other brands I have used cake on oil so easily, not this one. It looks fantastic, its priced is well deserved and will make anyone drool. I have people pass my other things in my house to see my gas range. Buy this product. You will NOT be disappointed.
