Worst cooktop ever
from Texas, United States
Comments about Kitchen-Aid 30.0625" Downdraft:
recent kitchen remodel. replaced all appliances with the Kitchen Aid Architect series - not cheap. Love the oven/microwave convection combo. Love the fridge with platinum interior. Halfway love the three tier dishwasher except it won't fit my Tervis tumblers on top and plates on bottom during the same wash. But the worst part is this downdraft cooktop. Used it one time to fry bacon and it is pitted with tiny cloudy dots. I have used the cleaner provided and followed directions but it will not erase the pits or clean up nicely. If I could do it again, I would go back to coils. I do NOT recommend this to anyone. If I could, I would pull it out and replace with coils. Nowhere in the instruction booklet provided did it recommend cookware. I looked on the internet and used my Calphalon (as suggested) for the ONE TIME I cooked on it. I'm going to research and find different cookware that might work better. DO NOT BUY THIS COOKTOP!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love the 2 large burners
from Dallas, TX, United States
So very pleased, so far so good. At first it was hard to see the Hi, Med, and low due to Black on black dials
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
My glass top cook top
from Jackson, MS
I like it somewhat but I have noticed with the different settings it is hard for me to control how fast or slow it cooks. The dual setting is nice but it is sometimes hard to get use to. My husband doesn't like it because he is in charge of cleaning it after use.
from NY, United States
the best feature of this cooktop is that it cleans up very easily---even when something boils over and burns. I had an electric cooktop before and it never cooked as evenly as this one does.
Looks great ... works great!
from Lake Saint Louis, MO, United States
Needed to replace an old GennAir coil / grill downdraft cooktop. Selected Kitchen Aid based on on-line reviews. Very happy with speed to heat up and temperature setting ease of use. Downdraft works well. BUT do need to use the polish frequently to keep to glass top clean and looking like new.

What a change!

What an upgrade after 25 years. So much faster and so much easier to clean!
New 30" Downdraft cooktop
from Ashburn, VA, United States
The markings/letters for controls are difficult to read. Certainly not enough contrast. Also, elements keep reducing heat with certain large pots, making boiling water a long process. Other than that it's a nice cooktop. I like the melt setting on controls.
Gets hot Super fast!
from Petal, MS, United States
Love the versatility of the dual (small/large) burners, they let you dictate where different size pots can be place, not the other way around.
Heats quicky and evenly
from Cocoa, FL, United States
Didn't have many options for a downdraft in the size of our cutout but very happy with this choice. Heats quickly and evenly. Very pleased.
