I replaced a white one with the control switch on the top. This black one has a "remote" control switch. Performance - It works as it was designed Quality - Solid and functional Features - the "Remote" is a long wire connected to a flat control. I had no choice but this for an island cook-top. It was going in granite counter tops, therefore, there was no place to mount the remote without having the wires dangling in the pots and pans and we ended up drilling a hole in a drawer and running the wire through it and mounting the control on the side of the drawer. So you have to open the drawer to use it. Kind of klutzy but its not something I use very often. Appearance- Down, it looks good when it's down. Not so pretty in use, but I see no way to change that. Value - more than I wanted to pay but if you have an island in a vaulted ceiling, this is your only option.

I have to say I'm not happy with this downdraft vent. There's not enough suction power, and I end up smoking up my house whenever I do any high heat cooking, unless I use the two burners closest to the vent. And, when I do that, the vent will inevitably get spattered by whatever I'm cooking. I suspect it's a fundamental conceptual problem, and probably not specific to this model. If you're cooking on a front burner and you're using a tall stock pot, it's unrealistic to expect a vent that's shorter and ~16" away to pull away any smoke. However, it also doesn't pull any smoke when I'm using a skillet on the front burners. I'd expect it to work in that case. If you have to use a downdraft vent like I do, I'd strongly suggest getting a cooktop with a built-in vent that runs down the center, so that it only has to overcome the distance to the top of the cookware you're using.

Great vent, but inconvenient controls

By 

from Eagle River, AK

Comments about GE Profile 30" Stainless Downdraft System:

I am happy with the performance of this vent. Multiple speeds and fairly quiet, but it was difficult to find an appropriate place to mount the control buttons. It turned out that my contractor found a way to mount it inside the cabinet.. but, I would have preferred to have integral to the vent itself.

Just what I needed

By 

from Atlanta, GA, United States

Comments about GE Profile 30" Stainless Downdraft System:

I was replacing a downdraft radiant cooktop with an induction cooktop. While a few models of radiant cooktops are available with a downdraft vent incorporated into the design, an external downdraft is needed for the induction cooktop. This GE Downdraft Rangehood is perfect. It telescopes up when needed and telescopes down after cooking. This raising mechanism is very quiet. The vent is barely audible at almost all speed settings. Finally, the appearance of the GE Downdraft Rangehood is classy.

GE Downdraft

By 

from Fort Myers, FL, United States

Comments about GE Profile 30" Stainless Downdraft System:

I purchased this downdraft to replace my GE downdraft. I thought it would have the same features and be easy to install but after 17 years you made some changes. The installer started to install it yesterday but has to come back today to finish. He said it was different and he didn't know how to install it. I don't like the remote. It has to be attached to my cabinet.

Downdraft is not quite strong

By 

from Waterbury, CT, United States

Comments about GE Profile 30" Stainless Downdraft System:

I bought this model a week ago to replace my old downdraft vent system. The installation is a bit struggling due to the vague instruction.

Quiet operation

By 

from Rockville, MD

Comments about GE Profile 30" Stainless Downdraft System:

Very smooth operation with a pretty quiet motor. I love that there are 4 fan speeds. The installation of the switch must be mounted to make sure that the wire contact doesn't move; otherwise, the unit doesn't operate.
