Overall score is based on:
Cooking performance (60%): We conduct 3 tests to assess the performance of the cooktops:
White sauce on the smallest element with the lowest setting:
This tests the cooktop’s ability to perform at a low temperature for a long time.
White rice on the medium-sized element:
This tests the “turndown” capacity of the element (starting on a high heat and reducing to a simmer) and whether it can maintain a suitable heat at the lowest temperature setting.
Beef and vegetable stir-fry on the large element:
This tests whether the cooktop can deliver continuous high heat.
Ease of use (40%): Rates the ease of using the controls, ease of cleaning, and the user-friendliness of the cooktop layout.
Price is based on a September 2015 and March 2017 survey.

the 'Automatic Heat-UP function was wonderful for 6 weeks. Best thing since sliced bread. It would quickly heat pot and then drop back to selected setting, then continue cooking until selected time to finish. Absolutely wonderful!!
After 6 weeks the elements would not drop back down to selected setting and would continue to heat at full temperature. I had the control panel replaced and new control panel Automatic heat up function wouldn't work at all. The cook top was replaced, and new cooktop 'Auto heat-up' would't work either.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
