The 36-inch Bosch NGM8655UC gas cooktop (MSRP $1,099), part of the manufacturer’s 800 Series, has a clean, utilitarian look that suggests it could be cooking powerhouse. Unfortunately, looks can be deceiving.
Don’t get us wrong—this Bosch can reach gentle simmering temperatures with the best of ‘em. High-heat tasks like searing and boiling are where it falls short. The problem is, only one burner gets particularly hot while another is the only one that can boil water in less than 15 minutes.
