Whirlpool’s line up of cooking products touches on all types, including free standing ranges, wall ovens, cook tops, and combination wall ovens with microwaves on top. Their extensive lineup includes various features such as a Schott Ceran glass cook top surface that has proven to be extremely durable as well as Eco-friendly, and a cost saving steam clean option in addition to the traditional self clean cycle (they call it Precision Clean). Some people still prefer the old style electric coils which are still available on a few select models. These coils have become generic across many different brands and models as well as the receptacles they plug in to.
When the smooth tops were first introduced 30 years ago they were not very strong and were much more prone to breaking than the modern day glass tops. In fact several years ago I was at a trade show event and watched a 300 lb man take a glass top, lay one end on a stack of wood at an angle and then stand on the middle of the glass. When everyone was duly impressed that it had held his weight without breaking he proceeded to bounce up and down. The glass held. Needless to say I was sold on its added strength and endurance! You will also find that the smooth top burners themselves seldom if ever fail. This is primarily because they are never subjected to having any direct contact from a cooking vessel. This is good news because the exposed coils would normally require replacement over the average life of the product.
