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.

I was looking for a classic looking smooth top. I found one and this unit heats quickly and evenly.
30" Downdraft Cooktop
By the wannabe chef
from Bothell, WA
Although I've only had the stove-top for a couple of weeks, it looks great and performs well. I had a bit of an issue with white streaks appearing on the glass surface, and was unable to obtain the Kitchen-Aid "cooktop cleaning kit" (out of stock). Found a different product that seems to work fine.
30" Downdraft Electric Cooktop with 4 Elements
By AmmoChief Retired
from Fort Worth, Texas
Extremely efficient, burners/heating elements quickly turn bright red. Extremely easy to clean and very attractive on our counter-top. Extremely pleased with the performance of our KitchenAid downdraft electric cooktop with 4 elements. Downdraft function is very efficient and quit Great price, great product, would buy again if required.
This cooktop replaced a 25 yr.old Jennair. It heats quickly and the red glow of the eyes shows exactly which unit is in use. We installed black granite countertops at the same time which make the cooktop blend in well. The Kitchenaid cleans up like new with the proper cleaner. I couldn't be happier with the overall performance, looks and ease of maintenance.
from Pensacola Fl
Powerful 3 speed downdraft fan. Top quality heavy stainless control knobs. A little difficult to control heat setting on the 2 double element burners but overall cooks well.
Pick another brand
Way harder to keep clean than my old jenair also fan is super loud &. Doesent draw like the Jenair
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
