The Samsung NZ36K7570RG is a versatile electric cooktop with five heating elements that present a wide range of heating options. It also has an easy-to-clean glass surface and a sleek and modern design that will enhance the look of most kitchens.

The Samsung cooktop is pricier than most of the others we looked at, but you get a lot for your money. It has a triple burner with six, nine, and 12-inch heating circles, a helpful six inch burner you can use for food that needs to be melted or kept warm, and a dual burner with six and nine inch circles. Each heating element offers 3,300 watts of power and allows for rapid boiling or low heat to barely warm levels depending on what you’re making.

Samsung NZ36K7570RG: Main features

With the Samsung NZ36K7570RG, you get two seven inch heating areas that you can use separately, or you can synchronize them and employ a bridge heating space to accommodate a griddle or extra-large pan cooking things like pancakes, bacon and hash browns, and still have room for other pans.

You get 15 heat settings with this cooktop, which will facilitate all types of cooking. The burners on this cooktop begin heating and the temperatures increase in an incremental and even fashion, glowing red when they are hot. You can turn burners off and let the residual heat within them keep your beef stew warm or defrost frozen vegetables in a pan.

The dual set of controls on this cooktop adds to its flexibility. You can use a magnetic analog knob that you can move around to control whatever burner you are using, or you can use the digital touch control if you prefer. It comes in two sizes, either 30 or 36 inches, to fit your space. You can choose between black stainless steel or stainless steel. This Samsung model offers Wi-Fi connectivity for the cooktop and Bluetooth for the hood, so you can keep tabs on the cooktop from your smartphone and adjust the hood lights and fan as soon as a single burner is turned on.

The Samsung electric cooktop has a hot surface light indicator, which is a great safety feature, as well as a child lock to prevent curious kids from turning the cooktop on. You also get a kitchen timer with this appliance, and cleaning with a special cream and pad for ceramic cooktops is an easy process. If you like a five-burner electric cooktop, but one that comes with a lower price tag, take a look at the LG LCE3010SB.
