This 36" gas cooktop includes Downdraft, an integrated ventilation system that doesn't require a separate hood. The cooktop features a 17K BTU professional burner to achieve both high heat needed for searing and low simmer settings. The 5K BTU Even-Heat™ Simmer Burner enables precise simmering and melting while the 300 CFM exhaust rating means the venting can handle it all.

17K BTU Professional Burner

Provides the ability to use high-temperature cooking methods such as searing, stir-frying, and wok cooking as well as low temperatures suitable for simmering.

3-Speed Fan Control

Can be precisely matched to cooking needs, effectively removing steam, grease, and odors from the air.

300 CFM Exhaust Rating

Handles the venting requirements of high temperature cooking techniques like pan searing and stir-frying.

5K BTU Even-Heat(TM) Simmer Burner

A diffuser plate allows more control of the flame at the lowest setting, for more precise simmering and melting.

Convertible to Duct-Free Ventilation

Allows a downdraft cooktop to be placed nearly anywhere in the kitchen using a duct-free conversion kit (not included). This filters and recirculates the air without running ductwork, ideal for kitchens with installation restrictions or ducting limitation

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.

Electronic Ignition and Automatic Re-Ignition

Lights burners with an electric spark instead of a pilot light. For more reliable performance, burners are relit if the flame is blown out.

Full-Width Cast-Iron Grates

Enhance the beautiful look of the cooktop and allow easy movement of cookware around the entire cooking surface.

LP Conversion Kit

Allows you to convert the cooktop so it can be used with LP gas.

Melt Cap

Melt chocolate or butter, simmer delicate sauces, or poach eggs on a low-power burner, thanks to a wider burner cap that shields and diffuses the flame to produce a gentler, low-power heat.

Stainless Steel Knobs

Enhance the look of the cooktop surface with sturdy construction that adds to their premium feel.

Finally got the stovetop installed. had to convert from electric to gas. I like it so far however when I was looking to purchase I wanted the knobs to be all on the right side.

I have had this cooktop for a couple of months now. It looks nice but the controls function poorly making it difficult to use. The first 50% of burner control range does not reduce the flame at all. Almost all of the flame control is limited to the lower 10% of knob range. This lack of control makes this product a poor choice. What is sad is that a better selection of control (relatively minor part) would have made this a much better product.

Hope it works!

This is a new product for KitchenAid, so I took a chance as I have had downdraft systems before (Dacor.) We vented to the outside of home, so you will need appropriate venting system in addition to cooktop. Not crazy about the loose placement of the grill in vent area. Also, we had a faulty ignitor and are currently waiting for the replacement part. Have to light manually, but the burners work just fine. I think I am going to like it. For the price compared to Dacor, Wolfe, and other high end cooktops, it seems to be just as functional. Have not finished hooking up vent system until part arrives for ignition.
