This 30-inch downdraft cooktop gives you the versatility to install the cooktop in an island or peninsula without the need for a separate ventilation system. The built-in downdraft vent helps capture smoke, steam, and odors right at the surface. And with four burners, you can do everything from simmering to stir-frying with a range of high-to-low heat outputs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic Knobs I wish I would have read these reviews before choosing this cooktop 3 years ago - I'm shocked that the knobs are plastic - they have broken numerous times and of course the cheap plastic parts like these aren't covered in the warranty so they can make more money since I have to purchase these replacements often. KitchenAid has not been helpful at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's just OK Hard to keep the glass top, drives me crazy with the smears. Cheap knobs, the knob to the downdraft cracked (after maybe 15 times using no it). The grates are too slippery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'd be suspicious of any KitchenAid Product now I purchased this cooktop a little over two years ago, and posted a review shortly after purchasing and installing the unit. The first knob broke within weeks of installing the unit. I have now had to replace every knob at least once. I am now on my fourth replacement of the fan control knob, and have just had to spend over $100.00 to purchased a complete set of replacement knobs. At the price of this unit, the extraordinarily poor quality of the knobs is absolutely unacceptable. And KitchenAid has been no help with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Kitchen Aid Gas Cook Top I love our new Kitchen Aid Gas Cook top. It has a down draft which was a must in our home. I couldn't be happier with the look of the cook top and it's so easy to wipe clean after each use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Downdraft Cooktop I would like to see two changes. 1) Instead of both medium burners on the back, would have preferred one in front 2) Low is the smallest setting but would love to be able to still adjust down past it. On the large burner, it's still too high. This filter also has a tendency to flip to the other side as it just leans and is not attached. Would like it to attach and stay. Also, would love a cover or solid piece to purchase to cover the fan when not in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful features. I have wanted one for years. I am happy with my purchase. It was expensive since I had to add a gas line. I do have a couple of issues. The fan is loud so you can tell its working, but it does NOT suck down the steam as I cook. Also, the little silver piece around each burner does not come clean once something has spilled on it. I cannot remove stains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek! Placed this in the center island and it adds a classy feel. The downdraft is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love this gas cooktop, beautiful design, heavy grates that can be removed easily and cleaned. The down draft works great and sufficient cooking space. Very happy with this appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Visible Presentation I bought this Cook Top as part of a package of four KitchenAid appliances. All four compliment each other in design and have made my kitchen look like its out of a Better Homes and Garden magazine. The functionality of the cook top is without comparison. The controls are placed perfectly, the igniter is the fastest that I have ever experienced in any gas appliance, and the raised burners provide a clear view of the flames adjustments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Cooktop We swapped an electric cooktop for this gas cooktop when we installed natural gas in our kitchen. This works well and gives us better and more consistent heating. Easy to clean.
