Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KenMac Would not buy GE downdraft
We purchased the prior generation--three whole years ago. Now we have to buy a new one because GE will not support with parts. Why do I need parts? This vent has worked half of the time we have owned it. Now the motor housing is broken and I cannot repair. Stunning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosy333 Works really well, love it!
I've had never used this type of ventilation system before but since my stove top is on my island, this was a perfect option for us. I didn't want to obstruct my view while cooking so we installed this downdraft system and I love it. It's easy to use, it has adjustable speeds and it isn't any noisier than the overhead fan system. I highly recommend it!

I have had this downdraft for 3 months and am not very happy. Does not always come on when it pops up. repair ma came and it has improved, but must call again as I have encountered another problem. Doesn't do a great job drafting unless on back burners. Had to get a new system as my old stove top died and had to replace down draft too as it was a complete unit. I miss my old downdraft. However I had to have a downdraft due to location and this product works better than nothing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GregSt More powerful than I expected
We bought this unit specifically so we would not have to provide replacement air, and as such I had low expectations. It turns out to work great thoroughly drawing steam and smoke away from the cooktop quickly.

We had our downdraft installed 2 months ago and have not used it once because it has not worked. The repair person has ordered parts 3 times over and the final conclusion is the whole appliance needs to be replaced--evidently a engineering design flaw that prevets the repair, so when a small piece needs to be replaced to remedy the issue, it can't be accessed, therefore is irreplacable and the entire appliance needs to be replaced. We are definitely hoping it works well once we have an opportunity to use it.

Needed to replace downdraft when I replaced cooktop and this item was very complementary with the GE cooktop I purchased. Like the operation although we have not used it that much yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great in an island
Love the telescoping vent so much better than overhead hoods. Give my kitchen a wonderful, clean, open look. Works great. Very quiet. Tucks away out of sight when not in use. Had the same style in my old kitchen. Never considered anything else when renovating my new kitchen.

All venting speeds very satisfactory. Very quite at low setting.
