Cooktop - 12-inch Solid Disc, Electric, 2 Burners - Verona
I was pleased to find a cooktop that fits into an opening cut over 40 years ago for a Gaggenau cooktop that eventually went bad. The new cooktop was installed easily, works well and heats quickly. The only negatives are that the stainless steel surround does get fairly hot to the touch when the burners are on; and the surround is slow to cool off and hard to get clean of grease without a lot of repeat wiping.
One additional positive: because a resident of the house cannot be trusted to use the stove safely, we can easily remove the knobs from the cooktop and hide them until we need to use the burners.
