Product Reviews
Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beautiful, if you don't care if it works I bought this cooktop for my new home in 2007. It looks fabulous with my granite and black cabinetry, and it isn't the run-of-the-mill Viking found in most higher end homes. It was distinctive, and that was part of the allure. Then it stopped working. And started again. And stopped again. And a dozen service visits later it is still dead. Completely. Gaggenau's response has been extremely unhelpful. Their local servicer is incompetent. I am beyond annoyed. If I had to do it again, I would have a Miele or Viking instead. 1/2/09
Rated 5 out of 5 good performance I had this model installed five years ago. Works perfectly -- just be aware than the brass finish will tarnish. Glad that I didn't have problems (I had problems with the Gaggenau oven, and yes, service is non-existent). 10/21/10
Rated 3 out of 5 by Worked Great for 3 years We bought this cooktop in Dec 2007. It is beautiful and worked great with no problems for 3 years. Then one day the burners stopped. Couldn't re-start: No gas flow, no sparking. Called service and when he tried it, the thing worked fine. Paid for the visit, then a few days later it stopped working again. After 1 day it worked again. Now it's an intermittant problem. Unfortunately it has a 2 yr warranty. If you buy one today it has a 5 yr warranty. Probably a bad spark module ($300?). Ooof. 1/27/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wok's That? Great cooktop. Outstanding performance. Not an easy cooktop to clean, but well worth it. 11/19/11
