This 30” gas cooktop includes Downdraft, an integrated ventilation system that doesn’t require a separate hood. The cooktop features a 17K BTU professional burner to achieve both high heat needed for searing and low simmer settings. The 5K BTU Even-Heat™ Simmer Burner enables precise simmering and melting while the 300 CFM exhaust rating means the venting can handle it all.

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.

17K BTU Professional Burner

Provides the ability to use high-temperature cooking methods such as searing, stir-frying, and wok cooking as well as low temperatures suitable for simmering.

5K BTU Even-Heat™ Simmer Burner

A diffuser plate allows more control of the flame at the lowest setting, for more precise simmering and melting.

300 CFM Exhaust Rating

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

3-Speed Fan Control

Can be precisely matched to cooking needs, effectively removing steam, grease, and odors from the air.

15K BTU Professional Burner

Reaches the high temperatures required to quickly get liquids to a boil and for high-temperature cooking techniques including getting a great sear on meat.

Convertible to Duct-Free Ventilation

Allows a downdraft cooktop to be placed nearly anywhere in the kitchen using a duct-free conversion kit (not included). This filters and recirculates the air without running ductwork, ideal for kitchens with installation restrictions or ducting limitations.

Melt Cap

Melt chocolate or butter, simmer delicate sauces, or poach eggs on a low-power burner, thanks to a wider burner cap that shields and diffuses the flame to produce a gentler, low-power heat.

Electronic Ignition and Automatic Re-Ignition

Lights burners with an electric spark instead of a pilot light. For more reliable performance, burners are relit if the flame is blown out.

Stainless Steel Knobs

Enhance the look of the cooktop surface with sturdy construction that adds to their premium feel.

Full-Width Cast-Iron Grates

Enhance the beautiful look of the cooktop and allow easy movement of cookware around the entire cooking surface.

LP Conversion Kit Included

Allows you to convert the cooktop so it can be used with LP gas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fairly happy We bought this a couple of months ago. All the burners work properly and it does a good job. The one complaint I have is that the downdraft fan pulls the flame and heat away from the burner. So, we’ve found it’s best not to use the fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kitchenaid 30” gas cooktop First time I have purchased a gas downdraft cooktop. Very pleased with the features & the stainless steel finish. The fan does affect the distribution of cooking fgas flames but I think it’s a minor inconvenience. Very happy with kitchenaid appliances. This is my second full kitchen appliance remodel with this brand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stovetop! We have only had this cook top installed for a couple of weeks but it is working very well so far! The downdraft fan works well and while it does "pull" the flame to the side slightly, the burners still seem to work well. The one thing I love is how easy it is to clean after use - much easier than our previous glass cook top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cook top I love cooking with gas and this unit is among the best I ever used. The selection of different heat burners is a real plus. I would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cooktop This is a wonderful cooktop. One of the best things about it, is the continuous grates. You can move pans around easily without spilling. I have not really used the very small burner yet, so I do not know how useful it will be. The rest of the burners have enough btu to heat up fast. I have been waiting to switch from electric to gas for 20 years, and I am very pleased with my choice. I absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Appliance My wife is ecstatic with this. Appearance and quality is so much better than previous piece of cooktop. Only criticism is that it is a 6" duct for downdraft and I had 5" that was piped enclosed to the outside of my house. Space is tight to make the connection. Otherwise, totally happy. Was impressed with the packing and ease of putting it together. Directions were very thorough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I have been waiting years to get a gas cooktop and was finally able to after a recent kitchen remodel. I love cooking on my new Kitchenaid downdraft cooktop! It is super easy to use and to clean! I would recommend it to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product with one key issue We loved the design and functionality offered in this product at the time of the purchase, We had no option but to chose a downdraft center unit and were aware of some issues related to gas unit with downdraft from friends using similar products. Once the product was installed we found out we cannot use any burner in low heat setting with the fan on. It takes out heat AND the ignition function keeps clicking. The problem does not surface when burners are on medium or high heat.
