Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying Whirlpool appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 12/31/2019.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Easy to Clean

PrettyGirl 8/1/2019

I purchased it and had it installed in July 2019. I had the whirlpool coil cooktop for years. The time to clean this Ceramic Glass cooktop is about half the time to clean the coil cooktop. It was a small process to learn. I used the Whirlpool cleaner and then the Whirlpool protector ( 1x weekly). The key I learned to this type of cooktop, is to make sure it is clean prior to cooking and making sure the bottoms of the cooking pots and pans are clean from prior use. I inspect them each time before use, but it only takes a moment. I know this seems like a long process, but once you start doing this regularly, it keeps the cooktop and pans looking like new. Still half the time of the previous cooktop. I did purchase new pots and pans, as I did not trust my older cooking items with scratches on the bottom. I was also used to cooking on "High" on the previous cooktop, and learned quickly to adjust to the actual settings, as the grid heats up quickly. I would have preferred the dual element to be on the back left, as my exhaust fan is on the far left, (Which is wonderful to have for a vent when cooking with extra oil.) The knobs are chrome coated plastic, they look great, not sure how they are going to last, time will tell. Overall I love the look and enjoy cooking on it.

Whirlpool 30-inch cooktop with dual element

Bobmc1 7/8/2019

I installed this about two weeks ago and it works as advertised. We wanted a cooktop with knobs because we were worried that our cats might accidentally turn on a cooktop with surface controls, and the four burner design provided the space we needed to use our pots and pans whereas the five burner design would not. Only drawback to date is that I'm concerned about the surface surrounding the burners and whether the dimpled surface is etched into the glass or whether it is some sort of applique that will scratch and be ruined by moving pots and pans; consequently I'm being very careful with the cookware. The knobs should be marked with white color on the "pointy" end - it's difficult to see which direction the knob is facing since everything is black - poor design there - all it needs is a little touch of white in the existing groove.

new cook-top

lette 6/18/2019

I was remodeling my kitchen and wanted to install new appliances. I like knobs rather than push button controls. It is beautiful, but I have had a bit of trouble learning to regulate the dual burner, however.

Millied 6/3/2019

I redid my kitchen after over 30 years of looking at the same appliances (except microwaves). I chose this stove and I'm still learning it. So far I like all of the features except that the surface stays hot for a long time after it has been turned off. I am accustomed to cleaning my stove when I finish cooking. So far that is the only thing that's not A+ with me.

Great glass cooktop

RayC1952 5/23/2019

I bought this to replace an old non-glass cooktop which looked like t went through a war! This Whirlpool cooktop fit perfectly in the counter opening and was easy to install. With the cooktop itself measuring a bit larger than the 30", I was comfortable that it would not be too small for the opening. The glass top looks great and is easy to clean.

Slee77 5/7/2019

I had to place a special order for this cooktop. Home depot didnt have in house so I placed the order sight unseen. Never again. I'm not happy about the finish that is difficult to maintain . Also don't like the burner sizes...3 small and 1 large.

One of the burners on the cooktop we had went out and we ordered this Whirlpool Desktop. It was on sale at an excellent price at Lowes. We've now had it only a short time but, so far, we are well satisfied.

Elliemay 2/20/2019

It's so much easier to keep this cooktop clean as compared to my old cooktop. The elements heat quickly which is a great energy saver. The dual element is the greatest thing ever. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Sleek and great size

Beccalynn81 2/20/2019

We have enjoyed our new cooktop. It is so sleek and shiny! It is pretty to look at. I like how the areas around the burners have a slight textured appearance. It gives it a nicer look and I hope it hides any future scratches since we had that problem with our old cooktop. So far so good! The duel element works great. I like the versatility. The 30 inch size is also perfect. It is difficult to take a good photo of it because of the shininess reflecting my backsplash but I included a photo.

Make it Hot, Keep it Warm

MamaLu 2/15/2019

We bought this cooktop a month ago and are enjoying the appearance and features. It is easy to clean, and I especially like that the knobs indicate very clearly which way is hotter and warmer. That said, the burners are a tad inconsistent with the heat. For the price, I give it a thumbs up.

Good purchase

Judy0658 9/12/2018

I needed a new cooktop and am pleased with the purchase. It's relatively easy to clean but I needed to learn about the differences between a glass cooktop and a traditional range with removable burners. My only issue is the large burner on the back will not boil a large pot of water. It comes up to temperature but will not get to a roiling boil.

Hard to believe

JJ the Cook 9/6/2018

I bot this a month ago and it broke. After finally getting thru to Whirlpool they sent a technician to repair it but he couldn't figure out what part was needed. Still waiting. All in all it is unsafely designed. There is just one "burner is hot" light leaving you to guess which one or more it is.

This Unit Has Issues

Jerry8A 8/29/2018

Model # WCE55US0HB I purchased this unit on (8/3/18). When using the dual size (6/10 in) element and choosing the smaller 6 in size, the most outer ring of the 10 in element glows red and is hot. This is a safety/nuisance issue and a poor design. That is why I give it 3 stars and Not Recommended. The unit is to have form tape that fits around the bottom edge of the cooktop. The single roll of tape I received measured 30 inches. I need at least 100 in. of tape for all edges. I contacted Whirlpool and they agreed to send me the extra tape. The cooktop scratches very easy. I used a small pan on the 6 in burner and hardly moved it. When lifting the pan, small scratches were evident. My old Kitchen Aid cooktop never did this with far more movement of utensils on its cooktop surface. The layout of the controls is problematic. First, all knobs are black sitting on a black background. The knobs have a slight depression on one end to tell you if you are looking at the top or bottom of the knob, but being black you have difficulty seeing it. The Low and High heat indicator marks on the cooktop are so small, as to be ineffective in identifying where and what they are. Without a strong light on the black knobs, you can't tell what setting you are on. So, for future use, you have to guess (or remember) what heat position setting the knobs are set for. And then to make that issue worse, you need to know all knobs do not work the same. When you turn the top three knobs clockwise, the first heat indicator is High. When you turn the bottom (dual size) knob clockwise, the first heat indicator is Low. Can be confusing.

Striking Appearance

Pappy Dave 7/19/2018

The beautifully simple, solid black design gives this cooktop an upscale stylish look. Any symbols or print that are etched on its surface are small and light - very discreet. It is strikingly attractive. However, as a result, the knobs aren't so user friendly. The control knob is faintly notched at its front but is otherwise the same shape as its back so you can't readily tell which end is the indicator. I wished it had a dab of white paint in the notch to aid in that determination or that it was slightly pointed so you could more easily tell. Also, it is rather curvy and sleek which makes for a grip that doesn't feel very confident or secure. However, that shape does allow them to be more easily cleaned. A variety of burner sizes lets you select from 6", 8" or 10" in order to better match your pan or pot. One "Dual" burner up front allows you to choose between either 6" or 10" depending on how you turn its dial. My wife wishes that the medium 8" burner, which is in back, was up front instead of the small 6" one since you already have a 6" available within the dual burner. Once turned on, the burners reach their setting fairly rapidly. There are two separate red indicator lights. One lights up to signal when one or more burners are turned on. And, there is another one next to it that will light up to show that the surface is hot, even after all the burners are turned off. Overall, what stands out about this cooktop is its strikingly beautiful and simple, total black appearance while its performance and features are rather typical of its price range.
