Product Details

This 30 in. gas cooktop includes Downdraft, an integrated ventilation system that doesn't require a separate hood. The cooktop features a 17K BTU professional burner to achieve both high heat needed for searing and low simmer settings. The 5K BTU EVEN-HEAT Simmer Burner enables precise simmering and melting while the 300 CFM exhaust rating means the venting can handle it all.
  • 17K BTU Professional Burner provides the ability to use high-temperature cooking methods such as searing, stir-frying, and wok cooking as well as low temperatures suitable for simmering
  • 3-Speed Fan Control can be precisely matched to cooking needs, effectively removing steam, grease and odors from the air
  • 5K BTU even-heat simmer Burner a diffuser plate allows more control of the flame at the lowest setting, for more precise simmering and melting
  • 15K BTU Professional Burner reaches the high temperatures required to quickly get liquids to a boil and for high-temperature cooking techniques including getting a great sear on meat
  • Full-Width Cast-Iron Grates enhance the beautiful look of the cooktop and allow easy movement of cookware around the entire cooking surface
  • LP Conversion Kit Included allows you to convert the cooktop so it can be used with LP gas
  • Downdraft ventilation integrates the ventilation system into the cooking surface so that a separate hood is not needed smoke and odors can be removed and taken outside or filtered and recirculated inside a duct-free kit is available for purchase separately
  • Stainless steel knobs enhance the look of the cooktop surface with sturdy construction that adds to their premium feel
  • Electronic Ignition and Automatic re-Ignition lights burners with an electric spark instead of a pilot light. For more reliable performance, burners are relit if the flame is blown out
  • Convertible to Duct-Free ventilation allows a downdraft cooktop to be placed nearly anywhere in the kitchen using a duct-free conversion kit (not included). This filters and recirculates the air without running ductwork, ideal for kitchens with installation restrictions or ducting limitations
  • 300 CFM Exhaust Rating handles the venting requirements of high temperature cooking techniques like pan searing and stir-frying
  • Melt Cap Melt chocolate or butter, simmer delicate sauces, or poach eggs on a low-power burner, thanks to a wider burner cap that shields and diffuses the flame to produce a gentler, low-power heat
  • Lights burners with an electric spark instead of a pilot light. For more reliable performance, burners are lit if the flame is blown out
  • Installation is not available in all locations, see store for details

Questions & Answers

Q:If you install an exhaust duct, it goes through the floor so if you?re on a cement foundation, you have to go ductless?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi, LisaM. The cooktop can be vented externally via the roof, wall, or floor exhaust. The cooktop can also be installed as recirculating (ductless) if not able to be vented externally.

          Q:What is the arrangement of burners as described in the specs in the picture? Can the left burners and right burners switch positions so that the highest BTU burner (#1) is on the lower right corner?
          by|Mar 22, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Left top is lowest, followed by the right top corner, the lower right is the next highest and the lower left is the highest BTU. Sure it can be done, but not easily due to the wiring and underneath configuration.

              My new KitchenAid Gas cooktop!!!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just moved into an older home where all the appliances were not working, out of date or just plain dirty. Began to research replacements and found how hard it was going to be to replace my gas downdraft cooktop. KitchenAid did not disappoint me at all. I love my new cooktop and have always trusted KitchenAid's reliability and quality. Thank you for rescuing me and making one happy Grandmother who can now enjoy cooking with my 5 grands this holiday season!!! It's a tradition I will never break :)

                Looks Nice
                I installed this cooktop a couple of days ago replacing an older JennAir. Jennair actually has what looks like the identical cooktop at a slightly higher price point. It can securely package and was relatively easy to install. Since I was replacing a cooktop, the adaptor needed to connect the flexible gas line to the regulator was already in place. If not, I would have had to purchase one separately. The fan is quiet and the burners start instantly. The 17,000 BTU burner is an upgrade over the largest burner on my older Jennair. My biggest issue/complaint is that the instructions (see picture) tell you to attach mounting brackets to the mounting holes on the bottom of the cooktop. There are no mounting holes! I contacted support and after holding about 45 minutes, I was told to contact a professional installer. This is the reason for my 3 rating.

                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this a couple of weeks ago after researching so many cooktops. We absolutely LOVE this unit - easy to clean and I love cooking again! Highly recommend!

                    Love it, but, manufacturing is off
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had a 30 year old, 30" gas Jenn Air downdraft cooktop. Worked great. But, we wanted stainless. So, we purchased the new Kitchenaid downdraft. It works great. BUT, the manufacturing must have been off. The knobs are not aligned. In particular, the fan know is very askew. Unfortunately, we'll have to have a replacement brought out. Once that if fixed, I can tell we will be very happy

                      What a beautiful cooktop!!!!!!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just had it installed and I couldn’t be happier. It was one of the only ones on the market that had a center downdraft. And I really like all of the knobs on the right hand side. It looks gorgeous on my kitchen island.

                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have really enjoyed this cooktop! Love the 4 sizes of burners for various pan sizes but mostly the higher BTU’s which allow for quicker cooking times!

                          Beautiful and efficient
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Im so glad my old gas cooktop was irreparable. I had no idea what I was missing out on. Fast smooth igniter, perfect amount of BTU, love the low simmer diffuser plate and easy to clean. One caveat: the knobs got bent during shipping. Still works fine, it just bothers me a bit. Just a matter of better securing of packaging for shipping. Also it would be better if the knobs came off for cleaning especially since they are textured.
