This 36" electric cooktop features Downdraft, an integrated ventilation system that doesn't require a separate hood. A 10-inch Even-Heat Ultra element provides versatility for both high-and low-temperature cooking, and has multiple simmer settings. And with a 3-speed fan with 300 CFM exhaust rating, the venting can keep up with your culinary feats.

Features:

  • 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.
  • 300 CFM Exhaust Rating - Handles the venting requirements of high temperature cooking techniques like pan searing and stir-frying.
  • CookShield Finish for Glass Surface - Protects the cooktop surface from scratches, helping keep it looking pristine even with frequent use.
  • Power-On Indicator Light - Lets you know at a glance when an element is on.
  • Stainless Steel Knobs - Enhance the look of the cooktop surface with sturdy construction that adds to their premium feel.
  • 6'' Round Element - Can reach a power output of up to 1200 watts to handle your daily cooking needs.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Nothing but problems

Submitted by gonza172 - We bought this from Best Buy on May 1. We had to wait 7 weeks due to back order issues. So, finally installed in late June. Within two weeks two of the knob controls could not be turned; they locked up. So, we request a replacement and again get multiple delivery delays. In the meanwhile, while turning a control knob that was working, we hear a loud pop. Then, within a few minutes the whole cooktop starts bowing and completely cracks in the middle of cooking. The stovetop then wouldn't power off so we had to turn off the circuit. Luckily no one was seriously injured in this ridiculous incident.

Downdraft sweats, causing mildew

Submitted by Laura8113 - We bought this cooktop 5 years ago. I really like it, but the downdraft pulls warm air from outside, causing moisture to build up in the bottom. We have had a problem with mildew forming in the bottom of the downdraft and on the filter.

Nice features

Submitted by Chas1 - Very happy, but I noticed a small scratch after three one half weeks. The pans we have are smooth flat bottoms. Hope this is not a recurring issue. Unit sets off the kitchen appearance nicely.

Good - but,

Submitted by LESJOY - The first unit delivered had a cosmetic problem with small area not painted. Replacement appears to be OK. Two areas of concern; we looked everywhere and used online Q&A and never got an answer as to the two different wattages on the burner that has two size circles. No one appears to know. Secondly the pictures for marketing appear to show each burner with a different shade of black so as to know where the outline of the burner is. The reality is you almost cannot tell without turning on the burner and letting it get hot/glowing.

Looks good works ok

Submitted by KitchenAid Sucker - We purchased this because we weren't ready to do major demo. Our existing cooktop is downdraft and the choices were limited. We purchased other appliances through KitcheAid so decided to go with them. We were however disappointed to see that the cooktop does not sit flush on our countertop something they could have disclosed before purchase. There is a quarter inch gap allowing food and fluids to seep through. Also the downdraft feature is very poor and unless you are using the burner closest to the vent, it's useless. My opinion this was an overpriced low quality purchase.

Disappointed

Submitted by Danich401 - I purchased this cooktop to replace an old Kitchenaid cooktop a couple of weeks ago. The burners are already showing a discoloration that seems to be below the glass surface, not burnt on food. The ultra heat burners are difficult to control heat and are too hot, damaging my cookware.

Air Grill Chips

Submitted by Love Electric Cooktops - I have owned this cooktop for 4 years. It cooks quickly and efficiently. The downdraft does work very well. The only problem is cosmetic. The metal air grill is constructed poorly and the paint started chipping off that first year. It was only a small chip the first year, but a huge chip just came off at year 4. And I haven't ever used harsh chemicals or rubbed the grill vigorously when I cleaned it.

Quick heat, easy clean.

Submitted by Estevan - We updated our cook top when installing new counters. It holds all sizes of skillets and griddles and heats quickly. The smooth top cleans easily. Only complaint is the paint on the downdraft vent was chipped in several spots.

Top Notch Stove!

Submitted by moyerexx - I absolutely love my new Cooktop. I can cook things in half the time that I could with my old stove. I love the features such as the right burner where I can use all of some of it. I love that I have more burners for when I am entertaining. Clean up is a breeze and it definitely brought style to my kitchen!

Love the Downdraft

Submitted by LouieATTHEBEACH - I had a GE downdraft for 20 years but it finally died. In researching replacement downdraft stovetops, this was the only one available at a decent price. All others were EXTREMELY high priced.

Great look and performance

Submitted by Nebsky - Purchased to replace a 24 year old ge coil because we upgraded entire kitchen. This thing is so much better. Heats evenly and performs great. I was hesitant to cook on it because it looks so nice. I clean it with special cleaner before i cook but then again after the burners have cooled down larger. Could not be happier

Submitted by TonyJA - Overall, I'm very pleased with this cooktop. I could nit-pick about the knobs not all having the same feel and the heating elements being difficult to see, but I'm really pleased I made this purchase and would do so again.
