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 an August 2017 survey.

I like the layout . There is a good range of flames available. Although small children could reach the switches, it needs a few seconds downward pressure, with the switch in the right position, for the gas to flow and/or light.
Not enough room to easily use a large frying pan on large burner and a pan on small burner at the same time.
Yes, I recommend this product.
