List Rules All brands that manufacture cooktops

List of cooktop brands that include the most reliable models available. A cooktop is an alternative to the freestanding range. It is a stove that is built into a kitchen counter, instead of attached to an oven. A cooktop is usually purchased with a double oven that is also built into the kitchen. This pairing results in a sleek look that offers a lot of space for cooking. Cooktop brands include those from major manufacturers of home appliances, including GE, Sharp, Samsung and more. This list answers the question, 'What are the best cooktop brands?' Users looking for a new cooktop will want to research a variety of different brands to find the one that best suits their cooking needs, based on function and features.

Cooktops vary by type. Some are designed to go over a counter, while others are counter top models that can be a tight fit in a crowded kitchen with little counter space available. Most of the major cooktop brands are available in a variety of different styles, each designed to best suit a customers' specific cooking needs. Ease and convenience are certainly big factors to consider when choosing a new cooktop.

Cooktop brands offer varying degrees of cooking power, as well. Some models can cook food lightning fast, using higher wattage to get the job done. Others might take a bit longer, but they also work well. What is the best cooktop brand? That's subjective, and often based on a consumer's past experiences with a specific brand. This list includes a vast majority of the most recognizable cooktop brand names that are currently on the market.

From built-in cooktop model brands to over the range and counter top models, this list includes those cooktop brands that consumers might wish to learn more about, including full sized cooktop brands and more compact models.
