DOWNDRAFT GAS COOKTOPS
CHOOSING A GAS COOKTOP WITH DOWNDRAFT VENTILATION
Gas cooktops with downdraft are perfect if you’re looking for an open feel to your kitchen or if you install your cooktop on a kitchen island where there isn’t room for a hood. Downdraft cooktops eliminate the need for an overhead vent as the ventilation system is integrated directly into the cooking surface, unlike updraft ventilation systems that require an overhead vent.
GAS COOKTOP WITH DOWNDRAFT SIZES
KitchenAid® downdraft cooktops come in both 30- and 36-inch widths for you to choose from. Choose a 36 inch gas cooktop with downdraft if you want a fifth burner to take on more culinary tasks at once. The 30 inch gas cooktop with downdraft comes with four burners and a variety of heat outputs that help you take on everything from melting and simmering to stir-frying and sautéing.
GAS DOWNDRAFT COOKTOP FEATURES
Downdraft cooktops come with a variety of features that give you the flexibility and precise control you crave in the kitchen. Use the 17K BTU Professional Burner for high-temperature cooking methods like searing, stir-frying and wok cooking. The 3-Speed Fan Control lets you match your ventilation to your cooking needs and helps remove steam, grease and odors from the air.
