Because smoke, steam, and odors are captured right at the surface there’s no need for overhead venting. And four elements include two double-ring elements that gives you uncommon versatility for whatever cookware you use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from wish i would have gotten a induction cooktop instead. Its's a nice unit except the cooktop really is hard to keep clean and requires cleaning up the burners before it gets cold or it will stain the cooktop.Also the downdraft unit even on high doesn't seem to suck as much as I need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some good and some bad features The biggest problemn I have with this cooktop is that when I have something boiling or simmering, just turning the knob up or down one click makes it either boik too fast or barely simmer. It seems that the adjustments aren't very good for that. It also scratches very easily. I am very disappointed with that aspect. Other than that it's fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased The down draft is even better than I expected. The burners work great. Still getting used to dialing in the temp for various uses. Love the easily removable grate of the downdraft for cleaning

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure I like it so much I have a couple of issues with this cook top. I bought new pots and pans, the recommended type, and there are still scratches on the cook top. I am so very careful and do not slide the pans at all. I even pick them up when possible to stir things but there were scratch marks on the burner areas after the first use. Also, for all of the burners, cooking almost anything, if I have it set say on medium, it's cooking way to fast, and if I just click it down one time then it's cooking too slow. It is very frustrating at times and often I have to keep changing it back and forth. It's difficult to keep it looking clean even when not having used it. Collects dust and such very quickly. If I could do it over, I would not choose this black ceramic cooktop. So sorry, but this is just how it is. I guess I'm stuck with it now. I wondered though if there was something that didn't get done to it during manufacturing that was supposed to have been done. Like maybe it's faulty. If you could reply to me about this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful addition to our kitchen Purchased two months ago and very happy we did. Replaced an older, tired countertop model. The functionality of the cooking elements is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Downdraft electric cooktop Just installed this cooktop and have only used it twice. Have not had a glass cooktop before. I am worried about upkeep. Sure hope it lives up to its reputation. I am pretty fussy and don' like to see streaks. It may drive me crazy keeping it streak free. It is in the middle of an island.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Few Options I have a small cooktop area to replace with few options. It was between JennAir and KitchenAid. Apparently both are made by same manufacturer with KitchenAid being substantially less. Have a wonderful KitchenAid dishwasher so went for KA with the cooktop.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works very well, however glass scratches very easily We have been using our cooktop for less than a week and already it has developed scratches on it. Unsure how they were created as we have brand new pots and pans also kitchen aid. Really disappointed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cooktop. We are really pleased with all the functions of the cooktop except the lettering for the top controls is really hard to read. Is there an overlay that can be purchased to help?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplistic Ease This cooktop has it all: two alternate size burners, two separate mid and small size burners. The down draft feature prevents food odors from permeating open design homes and also does away with food splatter that requires messy clean-ups.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look of it. I really Iike my cooktop except for having to clean with special clothe so it won't scratch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great Bought to replace a 33 year old Jenn Air Electric cooktop. It was easy to install and has a very nice finished look. The burner switches feel very smooth and well made. We're having to get used to cooking with this style cooktop vs. the old filament type, but I'm sure we will.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Cooktop This appliance was installed by the builder and is adequate for our needs. We had a five-burner stovetop in our last home and we currently miss the warming burner that we had previously; however, the cooktop referenced above is good for our needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 30" Downdraft Cooktop Although I've only had the stove-top for a couple of weeks, it looks great and performs well. I had a bit of an issue with white streaks appearing on the glass surface, and was unable to obtain the Kitchen-Aid "cooktop cleaning kit" (out of stock). Found a different product that seems to work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looks I was looking for a classic looking smooth top. I found one and this unit heats quickly and evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30" Downdraft Electric Cooktop with 4 Elements Extremely efficient, burners/heating elements quickly turn bright red. Extremely easy to clean and very attractive on our counter-top. Extremely pleased with the performance of our KitchenAid downdraft electric cooktop with 4 elements. Downdraft function is very efficient and quit Great price, great product, would buy again if required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heats quickly! This cooktop replaced a 25 yr.old Jennair. It heats quickly and the red glow of the eyes shows exactly which unit is in use. We installed black granite countertops at the same time which make the cooktop blend in well. The Kitchenaid cleans up like new with the proper cleaner. I couldn't be happier with the overall performance, looks and ease of maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cooktop Powerful 3 speed downdraft fan. Top quality heavy stainless control knobs. A little difficult to control heat setting on the 2 double element burners but overall cooks well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product, be careful about scratching glass top not too many options for center fan. This was a good one. Heats nicely. burners have size optionality. Be careful about scratching the glass top with the bottom of your pots and pans. Could use a bolder system to ID which dial goes to which burner
