I grew up with a Miele Induction stove in the Netherlands 35 YEARS AGO in my parents' house. When I built a totally new kitchen in FL 4 years ago, I decided not to spend the money for Miele Induction since it seemed incomprehensible that anyone could screw up 35 year old technology with no moving parts. I was wrong. The Kitchen Aid (Whirpool) 36" induction cooktop I purchased was a constant source of wasted 4 hour service call windows, unjustified insults from Offshore-based script-reading Kitchen Aid phone representatives regarding the quality of my new kitchen build and my competence as a cook, and ruined meals.
Since I am not rich enough to enrich several BAR Association members to facilitate a successful prosecution of Whirlpool's fraud, I finally took the kitchen aid cook top out of my countertop and threw it into the garbage. Since I had also suffered 4 service calls on my double wolf ovens, I decided to buy a 36" Miele Induction cook top, Model 6370 instead of Wolf Induction. Although I have read some bad reviews of older USA version Miele's, I have read other reviews that indicate Miele has solved all of the issues regarding US electricity versus European. So far, the Miele is flawless ... a welcome change from the out-of-the-box problems I have had with Wolf, Samsung, KitchenAid, Sharp, and ASKO.
