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.

This is the only flat bed gas cooktop that is solid and FLAT which means it will not tip off the edge. All the others I have seen are flimsy and raised so that pots can topple off the side. I do NOT agree that the controls are uncomfortable to use.
This gas cooktop should rate higher as I think it is the safest out there.
Yes, I recommend this product.
