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.

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.

Comments about KitchenAid 30" KGCD807XBL Black Gas Cooktop:
We enjoy using the product, however, the black shiny surface "stains" and nothing will removewhatever is on it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.

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
Not the right cook top for Asian cuisine or for serious cook
By Pressure Cooker
1] Downdraft - bad idea, especially since it influences the flame's orientation.2] Knobs - flimsy, and expensive to replace3] Overall maintenance - could have been designed better for folks who cook frequently4] Paint peels off easily from the gratesLooks good, though, when it is clean.

LOVE My Cooktop!
My downdraft cooktop was the highlight of my total kitchen remodel, and I LOVE it! There is no hood to clean which gave me more cabinet space. The cooktop itself is easy to clean as well as easy to use. I am thrilled my contractor recommended it to us!

We ordered all new Kitchenaid stainless steel appliances in mid-March and had this installed in Mid-May.The cooktop looks awesome! The units all work perfectly. Glass top very easy to clean.Downdraft on low setting works fine for me.I've had many compliments on how it looks on my island.
