Comments about KitchenAid 30.0625" Downdraft:
I replaced a JennAir cooktop so I needed to replace with a downdraft model. This unit is very attractive. It works very well and the downdraft is very strong.My only complaint is that the writing on the controls is hard for me to read as it is small and lightly marked. Otherwise it is great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

it really looks great!
from Memphis. Tn
I love its sleek look. It is very functional. But keeping the burners clean from buildup is a continuous process.
from Fort Worth Texas
We have cooked several times on our new KitchenAid cooktop and the wife and I are very satisfied with the way it operates and the ease of cleaning. The downdraft is also very efficient.
Best cooktop ever
from Chester Md
I had another brand before purchasing this one and I found that this one controls the heat distribution much better and heats up very quickly.
Good replacement for older Jenn-air electric downflow cookto
By Retired in KC
from Kansas City
Wanted an electric downflow cooktop to replace lightening damaged Jenn-air. This was the best choice for the $'s. Heats up faster than old unit. Easier to set correct temp. Has one element which reaches needed temp extremely fast, and which can be set for either smaller diameter pans or large diameter. Nice feature when time is a factor. Has a light that shines red when unit is off but portions remain hot to the touch. Nice safety feature. Red glow when elements are in use is another good feature and intensity varies with temp setting. Sits nearly flush with counter top. vents downward and vent is effective, but if you are replacing a 30" jenn-air, the old vent duct will not align correctly with the new Kitchen aid unit, necessitating using flexibile ducting and cutting a new hole if you have a shelf directly below the new unit. This can easily be botched by your installer, as our's was, so stand over the installer and insist that the retrofit of the downflow duct be performed correctly. Get the correct cleaner for the glass top. You will be glad you did, because soap and water is a bad approach, and the surface will collect hard to remove blemishes that come from pans and skillets,especially iron type pans and skillets. The black top is a lot like a black car. It will show dust and grime worse than stainless steel or white surfices. Poor cleaning attempts just make it worse because black is just hard to keep looking good. A good choice if it lasts.

we upgraded out kitchen with new granit countertops. The new cook top is a perfect addition to the island. So far ...great product
I love my new KitchenAid cooktop!
By The Texas Rose
from Trophy Club, Texas
I am really enjoying my new KitchenAid downdraft cooktop. I am amazed at how fast the elements heat up - way better than the previous appliance from another manufacturer. I also like the very efficient way the exhaust fan works. Again, must better than our previous cooktop. And we love the fact that we have two dual-size heating surfaces that we can use both a large or smaller pot/pan on.

I love this stove top. I had a jennair down draft and it was 20 years old. I didn't like the fan but this stove top has 3 speeds. It cooks very well. What a treat.
from Santa Fe, NM
Bought this cooktop to replace a older model to add some "pizzaz" to a kitchen in a condo in Santa Fe that I had for sale. This attractive stovetop with venting helped in a quick sale. The buyer loved it.
from Chesapeake, VA
Bought several months ago and overall it is a very good unit. We got a crack in the corner shortly after purchase, but it continues to work, The burners do transfer heat to the other areas, we were told it would be hot only at the burner, not all around it. We got this type of cooktop as it was replacing the one in the house we bought.
