This retractable downdraft vent rises 14 inches to help filter steam from tall stockpots, and remains flush with the cooking surface when not in use. The 600 CFM Pro Motor has the power to provide effective venting for most cooktops or ranges. The vent system is reversible to help fit in the cabinet space under the vent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice but doen't raise up We like the retractable vent system; however, the vent won't go up. The filter popped out after cleaning as the unit was going down. Now I can't raise the vent to put the filter back in. Electricity is going to the system. The manual says the system won't work without the filter engaging a microswitch and I can't raise it to put the filter back in.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great assembly I was so disappointed after having the vent installed. It would go up and down but the fan would not turn on. Installer said that it wasn’t the installation so I needed to call Kitchenaid. Repair appointment setup. After waiting 4 hrs - no show. Called Kitchenaid again. Repair company confirmed and this time kept me updated on the appointment time. Turns out that the switch for the vent was not connected! Really? You would think that the assembled unit would be tested before being packaged up and sent to a customer. I am cautiously optimistic now that the vent works. Maybe the rating will improve but for the amount that we spent on the unit, I expect quality assembly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better than no vent, but not great--when it works We purchased this unit when we remodeled our kitchen to avoid having a hood above the center island where our cooktop is located. The vent normally works decently but usually it won't exhaust smoke from cooking unless you're using the back burners. Unfortunately, we've also used in under a dozen times and now it won't retract. It's only a few months old so hopefully it will be an easy fix. Does not instill confidence at this point!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design! This is by far the cleanest looking downdraft system on the market, looked at many different brands and quickly found out the best bang for you buck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Bought this a month ago & love the product, blends well in my complete new kitchen, love the kitchen aid products. Was disappointed when the product was delivered, since we had received used parts & paid for a new product, it now meant that I would have to re hire my maintenance guy to come out again to install the product. Cost ws higher than expected, ABT did not help out here.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has not seen a single meal cooked in front of it! This product did what several reviewers said it did. On installation, had problems going up and down! Pulled 1 filter and it retracted and stopped responding completely! I have family coming for Thanksgiving and have no idea how to fix or who to call! So far not impressed! Please contact me today KitchenAid! I just put all kitchenaid products in my kitchen. Please don't make me regret!
