We evaluated its features, checked high and low temperatures for each of the burners, examined how quickly it can boil water. We scored on a scale of 10 compared to the rest of the cooktops we've tested this year. Here’s what we found.
- All burners can reach high and low temperatures with ease
- Bridge burner allows you to combine two elements into one for large pots or griddles
- Versatile burners, including a dual ring burner and a warming zone
- On the expensive end of the spectrum
- SpacePro Bridge Element—Allows you to combine two elements into one for large pots or griddles.

What we found
TIME TO BOIL 48 OUNCES OF WATER
Nine and a half minutes on average, but as fast as just under four minutes on the right front outer burner. The slowest (center rear burner) clocks in at about fourteen and a half minutes, which still isn’t bad, giving this cooktop a score of 7.4/10.
MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE REACHED ON BURNER
A pan reached a temperate 774ºF on the left rear burner, other burners hovered between 548º-769º F. This is a good score compared to the other ranges we’ve tested with a score of 8/10.
MINIMUM TEMPERATURE REACHED ON BURNER
A pan reached 115ºF on the center rear burner, other burners hovered between 120º-140º F. This is a great score compared to the other ranges we’ve tested with a score of 8.9/10.
Should you buy it?
Yes. This electric cooktop excels in reaching both high and low temperatures and has great range and versatility across burners. The bridge burner allows you to create a large cooking surface, perfect for large pans and griddles, and it’s a reasonable price for the caliber of its cooking ability.
