We purchased this cooktop because I really wanted gas and I needed a downdraft. This cooktop cooks very well. I love the easy clean. The only thing I don't like is the vent is so strong it pulls the flames slightly when cooking. The vent is extremely effective. Great look in the island.

We purchased a new home and this was the standard cooktop supplied, this by far was the poorest decision we made to not upgrade the cooktop, I hate it. The biggest complaint is the downdraft exhaust, if used, even on low it pulls the flames and essentially stops the cooking process. I would never do a downdraft again. The fact that food falls down into the vent doesn't help either. I'm personally not a fan of the glass top either but can live with that. The exhaust issue I can't.

Changed from electric
from Greenwood, SC
Comments about KitchenAid 30" KGCD807XBL Black Gas Cooktop:
Wish I had changed to gas a long time ago. This is a much "softer" heat in that there is no contact with the electric coil causing burning. Yes, the downdraft does pull the flame, but I just adjust the pan to center over the flame and we do not fry much, so I do not have to use the downdraft all that much. Very easy to clean cooktop as grills lift off leaving a smooth top to clean.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

beautiful stovetop, and works fantastic!
from Woodinville, WA
I've had this for a month, after pining for a new stovetop for over a year. This has great control over the flame, and the different size burners let you fit the task and pot needed. While it's easy to sponge off and still looks brand new, it is a little bit of a challenge to keep the glass looking perfectly smudge free. I think that long term, this will look better and will not show stains or scratches, so overall a great stove top!

We enjoy using the product, however, the black shiny surface "stains" and nothing will removewhatever is on it.

Beautiful lines, efficient dowdraft
Although my husband pushed for a cooktop that was 'flat', I love cooking with gas. I know a flat top looks 'cleaner', but I was presently surprised how pretty the KitchenAid looks. The grates over the burners have graceful, curved lines that I think adds interest to the cooktop. The downdraft is very efficient but a tad noisy. But every downdraft I've ever owned has been noisy!

We have had the cooktop for about 1 month - love it and enjoy cooking on it.
Downdraft Stovetop Review
from Houston, Texas
The stove top is working fine. I find it is hard to clean without streaking. I called the Kitchen Aid 800 number to let them know that the "cleaning cream" mentioned in the appliance paperwork was not included. (Paperwork said, "use the supplied cleaning cream to clean the stove top". The 800 line basically made me sound crazy and inappropriate for asking for the sample "cleaning cream" that the material referenced. So I wasn't particularly impressed with that exchange. I was only asking for an item your own marketing material mentioned was included in the packet.
Wish it were better
from Durham, NC
Very difficult to clean around burners and steel on burners. Not liking the clicking the igniters make when one burner is on with the cooktop. I was told its normal but I've never had this happen to any other cooktop I've ever had. I also have to move my pot off center whenever I have the downdraft in in order for it to cook evenly since the draft takes the flame in its direction. It's more annoying than it is wonderful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
