I cannot draft to e outdoors, does this model allow for charcoal filters ?

I cannot draft to e outdoors, does this model allow for charcoal filters ?
Asked by: David
Hello David! Per the Installation Instructions: IMPORTANT: This cooktop must be exhausted outdoors. We do apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your inquiry on our KitchenAid® appliances.

Its spec'd out at 240v. AC. Will the cooktop function properly at 208v. AC?

Asked by: Bob
This would only get 220v in a typical US residential application. Doesn't answer the question, but something for the KitchenAid team to consider when answering questions.

36 in. Downdraft Vent Ceramic Glass Electric Cooktop in Stainless Steel with 5 Elements including Double-Ring Elements is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Cooktop gives our kitchen a whole new look! We love the sleek black top and found the controls easy to use. The heating efficiency is great too. Very Nice addition to our other KitchenAid appliances . [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am seriously upset with the durability of this cooktop. We purchased our first one 1 year ago. ... I am seriously upset with the durability of this cooktop. We purchased our first one 1 year ago. Less than ONE WEEK after installation, a decorative bottle of olive oil (with less than 1 cup of oil!) fell across the corner of the cooktop & the cooktop shattered. I could not believe our new cooktop could be that fragile. We have owned several (GE Profile) series ranges with smooth cooktops & loved them. I assumed our quality issue with the Kitchenaid cooktop was a one time product defect. Called Kitchenaid & was offered absolutely NO HELP at all. I replaced the glass cooktop section for $400 + labor. Believe it or not, today the 2nd cooktop also shattered. We had hired an electrician to replace a light fixture over the cooktop. I placed 3 very heavy blankets across the cooktop & island to protect the surfaces, just in case. Once the light fixture install was complete, I was shocked to see a shattered cooktop once the blankets were removed. At no time did the electrician stand on top of the island, and nothing was dropped during the install. We are a retired couple, and have been obsessed about keeping everything away from the cooktop (which is a huge pain when cooking!). I cannot believe that we now need to replace yet another cooktop within ONE year. Both times we purchased the model without the S/S edging, however Kitchenaid customer service assured me that the S/S option was purely decorative, not at all a contributing factor to stability. Needless to say, we will NOT be replacing this second shattered cooktop with any Kitchenaid models, nor - due to their lack of customer service, ever purchase another Kitchenaid product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I love it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2017-03-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look in Kitchen remodel Love the look! This replaced a 30" with large ceiling hood. The downdraft gives a bigger, cleaner look. The metal trim looks great on our granite choice. We didn't think we'd have room for anything in the cabinet with the fan unit below. We were pleasantly surprised to stow away large pots, skillets and splatter screens. The large dual burner also works great for pancakes in a 14" nonstick fry pan. Waited a long time for the install, but all worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love it but ... I love it's looks, but it's so hard to get and keep clean. Splatters and finger prints show all to much, and it takes a long time of cleaning and wiping to get the streaks off. If I don't turn on the overhead light in the kitchen, the temp setting is hard to see on the burner knobs. Also It's slow to heat up, even when on high it takes too long to boil water. My 20 + year old Jenn Air's smooth surface was much easier to clean and keep clean. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cooktop I really like this cooktop except the warming burner is in the front, in the way, instead of in the back. I think the arrangement could have been adjusted to allow it to be in the back. I like the downdraft, the first I've had. And the extra width makes cooking with multiple pots/pans easier and more convenient. It doesn't sit flat on the countertop, leaving a gap that catches food particles, dust, etc. but I like it nevertheless. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2016-11-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Cooktop I really like this cooktop so far except it is black. My old one was a JennAir and it was all silver so it did not show grease spots. I am getting used to not cleaning it until it is cook. I love that a red light stays on until the top is cool. Heats really fast. I love the different sizes to set your cookware..3 sizes and it has 5 burners. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality We purchased the Kitchen Aid at the recommendation of the installer. It is great in all ways. The downdraft works well. We do not find it hard to clean. The only change I would make would be to put the warming unit in the back rather than the front. Having another front burner would make the cook top easier to use for shorter people.
