This 36” 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 5 out of 5 by from A Downdraft that works I'm thrilled with our new cook top, the 4 different levels of heat, one continuous surface and a downdraft that is quiet and actually works.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Controls are poor. I have had this cooktop for a couple of months now. It looks nice but the controls function poorly making it difficult to use. The first 50% of burner control range does not reduce the flame at all. Almost all of the flame control is limited to the lower 10% of knob range. This lack of control makes this product a poor choice. What is sad is that a better selection of control (relatively minor part) would have made this a much better product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't love inanimate objects, but if I did, I'd love this! I had been without a cooktop for about three months. My old one was so unpredictable that I'd quit cooking on it. Finally, my son and daughter (who both live out of state and came for a visit) shamed me into getting a new one. I've never been so glad to be shamed before! I have enjoyed getting back into the swing of things.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tried it once and it left soot on my pans and the burners... Tried it once, it left soot all over the grate, burner tops, pans...had to call a service agent to come out, they are coming tomorrow. Service call fee...who knows!?!?!?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kichenaid 36" Gas Cooktop w/downdraft I searched for a cooktop with a built-in downdraft system for months. Of all the cooktops I reasearched this particular KitchenAid was declared the best by many industry experts. After installing it and using it for a month, I can affirm the claims. It's functional, extremely well designed and built, and most importantly the downdraft system is amazing. It pulls the steam vapor and odors out of the kitchen really well. I'm very pleased!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice to replace a 36 inch downdraft gas cooktop The cooktop has burners that range from 5 BTU to 17.5 BTU to provide rapid cooking and boiling. The downdraft if quite strong without distorting the flame. Gorgeous with great grates. Hard to clean the switches. Stainless surface cleans easily with Simple Green or Affresh cooktop cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product Ever!!! What a great Product! Very, very user friendly...great use of the space for 5 burners...easy, easy clean-up! Just wondering why it took so long for use to purchase one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful cooktop! I just love it!! To be honest, when I saw this cooktop on the computer, I didn't care for the look of it. There weren't many options to choose from and did eventually order it. I am SO glad I did! Everytime I walk into my kitchen, I just have to glance over to look at my new, beautiful cooktop! There isn't anything I don't like about it. It's easy to clean, it's so quiet and it looks great! I highly recommend it -

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Gas Cooktop, looks great in the kitchen My wife and I recently purchased the Kitchen Aid 5- burner gas cooktop with downdraft venting. We are very pleased with its style, appearance and performance and thus far have not experienced any problems. We previously had a Kitchen Aid electric cooktop installed and converted to the gas cooktop. What a world of difference and glad we made the change.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from extra high power burner on side is great! I bought it about 2 months back and really enjoy the high BTUs. Only downside is burners are much closer than I expected. Also, one thing I would change is make a removable tray for the downdraft filter so easier to clean up the food that falls down
