We purchased the range a month ago as our kitchen configuration required a downdraft for ventilation. We absolutely love this range! The flame on the four burners are easy to control, and the downdraft ventilation works fabulously. Our only complaint is the amount of time the oven takes to preheat. Overall, we are very pleased with our purchase and would highly recommend this range.

There are very few choices for a downdraft range and I was please initially and for the first couple months to find this dual-fuel and good looking option. However there are two things that make me say beware1. Stainless steel is not supposed to rust right? The cooktop is not at all hardy. If any acidic splatters on it (eg spaghetti sauce or soups - not exactly abnormal use) it quickly pits the finish, and if not wiped up immediately, the spots start to rust! with diligent wiping with stainless steel cleaner (the only thing I use on it) the rust spots look gray rather than rusty, but the finish is still pitted and spotted. Some grease spots have the same effect. So after a year of use, its not looking so nice. I have the same problem with the front of my new dishwasher from the same line.2. The Aqua Lift cleaning - simmering water in the bottom of the over for 40 minutes cleans - the bottom of the oven. Absolutely no impact on the cooked-on grease on the walls, top or door of the oven. The instructions caution you not to use oven cleaner because it will harm a coating on the oven, so scrubbing with magic erasers seems to be the only option. I really miss the conventional high-heat oven cleaning, even if it takes a long time and smells a bit.If not for these two issues I would give it 4 stars - it takes 15-20 minutes for the oven to heat up and I wish it held a constant temperature better, but otherwise it does what it is supposed to do. If I need quick heating or have something messy for the oven, I use my 13-year-old Kitchenaid self-cleaning wall oven - and the external finish on that still looks like new, unlike the so-called "stainless steel" in this line.

I just gutted and remodeled my kitchen and started off making a mistake. For all reading this - if you want a drop-in range in an island, then you have two choices - Jenn Air or Kitchen Aid. They are really the only two with a downdraft system. I tried another brand with the hope of installing my own backdraft system - big mistake. I found the Kitchen Aid to be the best - good downdraft, easy to clean, great oven with convection heating, and uses both electric (oven) and gas (stove top). I have absolutely no complaints.
Not a happy camper
By Baker Boy
from Kansas City
Stove is approximately eight weeks old. One of the burners was leaking gas. Home was filled with gas fumes. Luckily I was at home at the time. Very dangerous. Am without my stove for a week waiting for Kitchenaid to order and receive the part. You would think they might have overnight delivered the part to speed things along on this hgh end appliance.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from North Mississippi
I bought this oven 2 months ago and it has lived up to all expectations. I love the conversion of regular temps to convection temps - and its accurate! It does seem to take longer to get up to temperature but that is a minor inconvenience. As for the cook top, it is very powerful and provides all the needs anyone could want short of a restauranteur. The overall appearance is beautiful and easy to keep clean.
beward of dangerous situtation
from st simons island ga
I think it is dangerous. When you use the low setting on the burners and use the down draft, it blows the flame out! I have a service call scheduled when I realized this after my house had gas in it after the low burner went out without the downdraft! I have bought a gas alarm but this really scares me

I bought my stove about a month ago. It was not simple to install due to downdraft system. Once installed though, I love it. The oven bakes evenly & the stove top is a dream to cook on!

Works good. Price was high. Not many options for downdraft stove.

Extremely dissatisfied with the Aqualift self-cleaning oven.
from Eastman, GA
I purchased this stove last year. The control panel has already been replaced. The Aqualift self-cleaning oven is a huge disappointment. I have to clean it the old fashioned way, with oven cleaner and elbow grease.

We purchased the dual fuel range over a month ago and we are so pleased with the looks of the range and the performance is outstanding.

The only reason that I didn't give this all five stars is because of the difficulty in installation. I was hoping that this unit would fit in the same space as my old Jenn Aire downdraft. Unfortunately, it did not and the new cabinetry had to be rearranged to accommodate the new unit so that I could use the existing plenum system. Also, the old Jenn Aire system used a 6" exhaust whereas the new KitchenAid uses a 5" that has to be phased into the 6" system under the floor. Seems they could have stayed with the old system. That being said, I am very happy with the performance and appearance of my new purchase.
