My kitchen got damaged in a fire, and I replaced my old gas cooktop with this new induction cooktop. I couldn't be happier. It's so much better than my old gas cooktop for a number of reasons. One reason is that it is much more stable being flat. Another virtue is that it cooks things more safely because the top doesn't get hot. An additional benefit is that it boils water very quickly because it has a special setting to do that. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Quick, precise control, easy clean,”the best”
Replaced a Viking induction with this Frigidaire induction and it is much better. It has much more responsive touch control. It also has auto sizing , and looks as great as it functions. We bought it as the virus lockdown began and my wife and I have cooked every meal on it since. It makes cooking a breeze & a joy. We love it. We would never go back to any other cooking type.

I had been doing some cooking on a portable Duxtop counter top induction unit and as a result decided to replace my 28yr old thermal/glass cooktop with an induction unit. My selection of this Fridigaire was based on its high rating in Consumers Report relative to its attractive price. My only hesitation on buying an induction cooktop is the reliability due to all the power electronics. Only time will tell on this.
The unit easily dropped in as a direct replacement to my existing 30" cooktop. The only issue is the armored sheath for the power lines was 1/4" larger in diameter than the prior unit, so I had to increase a cutout on one drawer. This unit has a 1/4" step on the edge while my prior unit was flush with a metal rim. This clean glass transition does not catch debris making it easier to clean; not to mention the lack of knobs which also require constant cleaning.
The unit fully functions as advertised and it is a big step up from my prior thermal cooktop; better than gas in my opinion. It's 7" cooking "zone" will bring 1 cup of water to boil in 45sec using the "power boil" setting. The power levels are well spaced. The higher power settings are more than adequate.
The Duxtop used a single button to raise or lower the power setting... one press increasing or lowering the level by 1 unit. This Fridigaire has a "slider" which is a sequence of "spots" which select the different power levels. I was concerned how I would adapt to this, but it works well. I quickly got used to knowing where to touch the slider for a given setting.
The unit is quieter (virtually noiseless) than what I was expecting (e.g. noise from the fan or the induction coils); a pleasant surprise based on my experience with the Duxtop.
The only negative (If possible I would give it 4.5 stars) is the unit has an automatic warning system if it senses a "key" pressed or the surface is touched in some odd fashion; or an object is placed down on the surface. This is for safety with children and pets. When this occurs it will beep 5 times and if not rectified, the unit will shut down for a short period. I still can't quite figure out just what sequences of "touching" "what" part of the cooktop makes this kick in, but I set off this warning off whenever I clean it. This occurs even if I lock the cooktop with the lock function. It even occurred one time while I was moving some pans around while cooking. The documentation is very weak on this functionality (maybe I am missing something on this). A separate key to temporarily disable this feature would be a nice addition.
The unit meets or exceeds all my expectations and I would make the same purchase again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Love This Cooktop!
My wife has been wanting an induction cooktop for years. We remodeled the kitchen and bought this Frigidaire 30” cooktop which was highly rated (and a Best Buy) in a leading consumer magazine. She absolutely loves it! It can have water boiling in barely over a minute. And it can hold both low temps and high temps perfectly. Cleanups are a breeze with this all ceramic glass surface. Her only regret about this cooktop... is that she didn't buy it years ago! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Nice burner and control layout - love the timer!
I bought this a month ago to replace a glass cooktop and decided to go with induction - I couldn't be happier. Easy to install, easy to clean, and great contol over cooking temp. A worthwhile upgrade! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Super fast and easy to clean!
We have been using it for about 2 months now. If you get the right cookware you'll fall in love in the first use. The reason why I gave it 4 starts is because the layout of the burners is not ideal and sometimes is difficult to cook using all 4 burners depending on the shape of your pots.

I am enjoying my new induction cooktop. My only criticism is the location of the burners. If I need to boil pasta in a large pot and also cook in my large pam at the same time it is difficult with the way the burners are situated. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
