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 replaced our old Jenn Air down draft with this new cooktop. It looked beautiful in the kitchen. However, one of the knobs had to be replaced within a week of installation. The heating elements on the large burners are very uneven, with medium setting being very high heat. It is impossible to clean-even for water that has boiled or splashed over. I have tried every cleaning product available for this type of cooktop, even home remedies such as baking soda and hot towels. Nothing removes the food stains/debris except scraping very carefully with razor blades, which leaves tiny scratches. I would never recommend this product. I spend hours trying to get it clean, and once it is clean I dread cooking again for fear of something spilling or splashing.

Comments about KitchenAid 30" KECD807XBL Black Electric Cooktop:
I had to stay with an electric cooktop with a downdraft due to the configuration of my kitchen. The cooktop does require regular maintenance to make sure the surface is completely clean before cooking. I like the choice of all the sizes of pots to use on the elements.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Installation was easy. My husband did it.
By Working Girl

Easy to clean. The burners heat up very fast. The ability to adjust the burner size is perfect. And, last but not least, it makes my kitchen counter look beautiful.
This cooktop replaced a Cooktop that was original to the house, built in the 1980's. I wanted a replacement of similar quality, thus the reason for purchasing a KitchenAid. This one product made my kitchen look completely different, updated it. I really like the sleek design, no metal parts to scrub, and I especially like two dual burners, which provides more options for different sized pots.

Great cook top
from Jackson, TN
My wife & I decided to purchase this cook top after comparing with several others. We are very happy with this cook top. Not only does it preform well, it has a very nice appearance. It is a compliment to our kitchen & most importantly my wife is happy with the controls & how accurate it is when cooking. You know the old saying, " if moma isn't happy, no body is happy". Thank you KitichenAid for making a great product.
Easy Clean and Easy to work electric cooktop
By Susie Homemaker
from West Des Moines, Iowa
I have never owned a kitchenAid products previous to this purchase. I moved into a home and felt I wanted to replace the cooktop from a discontinued products. I was limited in space and the way the venting system was installed on the previous cooktop. I went with KitchenAid because it fit the bill and was pleasantly surprised by the product ease of use and the ease of cleaning up the cooktop. I would definitely recommend this product and would not hesitate in purchasing another KitchenAid product.

So pleased with this cooktop. Having the different size burners is a wonderful feature that allows me to cook with the different size pots I have accumulated during the years and they heat up so quickly it shortens the time spent in the kitchen.
