KitchenAide vs Jenn Air stove

Our 5 burner Jenn Air can't be fixed so our home insurance co. is replacing it with a comparable stove made by KitchenAid. The only real difference between the two is the KA has a grill/griddle in the middle instead of a burner.
Does anyone have experience with KA stove/range?

  1. Both KA and JA are Whirlpool Corp brands. Maytag bought JA in '82. Whirlpool bought Maytag in '06.

    Depending on the age of your JA stove, it's quite possible that you have experience with KA stoves. I've only owned KA mixers and food processors, so can't help with the cooking appliances.

    1. I had a premium KA natural gas 42" 5 burner cooktop that I liked very much. My mother recently replaced her ~30 year old JA cooktop with a grill and 4 electric hot plates with a new one. I suspect your KA is a rebranded clone of hers and it will work well for you.
