Downdraft Ventilation

Integrates the ventilation system into the cooking surface so that a separate hood is not needed. Smoke and odors can be removed and taken outside or filtered and recirculated inside. A duct-free kit is available for purchase separately.

10'' Even-Heat™ Ultra Element with Simmer Setting

Provides more versatility for high and low temperature cooking techniques. Even-Heat™ Technology maintains a constant supply of power and delivers a range of simmer settings.

6'' Even-Heat™ Element with Melt Setting

Combines the benefits of Even-Heat™ Technology with a dedicated setting that reaches the low temperatures needed to melt chocolate or butter without scorching.

300 CFM Exhaust Rating

Handles the venting requirements of high temperature cooking techniques like pan searing and stir-frying.

3-Speed Fan Control

CookShield Finish for Glass Surface

Protects the cooktop surface from scratches, helping keep it looking pristine even with frequent use.

12''/9'' Double-Ring Element

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent cooktop - ductless works pretty well This is a great cooktop that performs very well. We did go with the ductless option which performs better than expected but not perfect. The filters are also slightly difficult to find and expensive. But that's the price we paid to have a "clean" look in the kitchen. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cooktop has it all We bought this KitchenAid cooktop to replace one that didn't have the downdraft feature. I'm thrilled with how this one looks and performs. The downdraft is powerful, and the elements heat quickly and cook evenly. As compared to the previous cooktop, the KitchenAid glass top seems to clean up more easily and the markings around the knobs are easier to read. Very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cooktop with downdraft Bought this electrical cooktop with downdraft about a month ago. It's got 5 burners. So far it's has been working great. The only thing is we haven't figured out a good way to clean it and make it spotless. It shows grease easily. Have tried several products designed to clean the ceramic glass cooktop but not satisfied with any yet. Still looking for a good cleaning product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cooktop Overall, it works as advertised. We are happy with it, the burners have plenty of heat, and the downdraft works pretty well. But there is one thing about it you should know....The labels on the control knobs are hard to read. Take a good look before commit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not pleased with the glass finish I've had this cooktop for 2-1/2 months. I am only somewhat pleased with its performance, though it takes some getting used to. It's not like induction cooktops I've had in the past (two, both another brand). The knobs' off position is down, not up, and the setting markings around the knobs are faint and difficult to see. There is only one "hot" indicator light rather than one for each element. The main reason for this rating of the unit is that I find the glass top difficult to clean. I cannot get it clean, that is, free of streaks and oily residue, using anything I would normally use or what's recommended. (I'm not talking about burned-on stuff--I don't let that happen.) It streaks terribly, collects lint that's almost impossible to remove, and I have to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to clean it. I do like the various sizes of the elements and dual function of some of them. Bottom line, I'm disappointed in it and wouldn't buy it again or recommend it, sorry to say.
