It is a defective item.The top does not clean completely.
There are plastic covers to the gauges that have melted. I bought the item on line in July. When I called to see what could be done they told me to take it to the store. Really, uninstall it and carry it to the Store.
I went to the store to tell them this and they said they cannot take it. There has been numerous calls. A technician has come to my home but nothing has been done. He even reported that the top us cracked and there is nothing Sears can do.
It is not cracked. The top does not clean.
I had a Kitchenaide and it cleaned perfectly.The plastic on the top, which is an engineers mistake is melted.
