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.

great product, be careful about scratching glass top
Comments about KitchenAid 30" KECD807XBL Black Electric Cooktop:
not too many options for center fan. This was a good one. Heats nicely. burners have size optionality. Be careful about scratching the glass top with the bottom of your pots and pans. Could use a bolder system to ID which dial goes to which burner
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Stylish and a lot of cooking space

Okay at first I was not happy because the ceran was difficult to clean. Just smeared. Then I thought wait there has to be a product that is designed to be used with this cook top. Sure enough I found the solution. Whirlpool cooktop care kit. It is recommended for KitchenAid. Has made my life so much easier. The cook top is spotless and I love it! It also protects the cook top. It is a must!

I love my new cooktop the features are great I love the large dual and single options on the two larger burners I also love that the red light stays on until the cooktop has cooled off.
I am pleasantly surprised by the power of this downdraft. I've used different brands before and am very happy that I chose kitchen aid for our new kitchen. I would highly recommend this to anyone that needs a downdraft and uses it regularly.
Simmer and Melt settings
We purchased this cooktop for the melt and simmer settings. We previously had a smooth top JenAir and on lowest setting it would boil. At this time, we are extremely pleased. With the holidays approaching we will know for sure if we are extremely satisfied.

THE COOKTOP WORKS VERY WELL AND THE EXHAUST FAN IS GREAT. THE UNIT IT REPLACEDFAN WASN'T ANY GOOD SO THIS IS A WELCOME IMPROVEMENT. ALL IN ALL WE ARE VERYSATISFIED.

I do have a problem in that the downdraft is blowing cold air when it is turned off. How do I get that fixed?
First impressions are great. Everything works as advertised.
