Product Details

About This Product

This 36 in. gas cooktop includes Downdraft, an integrated ventilation system that doesn't require a separate hood. The cooktop features a 17KBTU 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.

Highlights

  • 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
  • 15KBTU 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

          The cooktop is beautiful! Haven’t had a chance to use it yet while the rest of my kitchen is undergoing remodeling. I love the look but cringed at the price. Learned the hard way I had to purchase a downdraft cooktop, which led to limited selection and triple the cost of an updraft. Aesthetically this was the best choice. Fingers crossed it cooks well too

          CHEAP Material Quality
          A year after purchasing this stainless steel Gas cooktop looks like a cat got on it & clawed at it, cause the stainless steel around the burners are so scratched up. Mind you I take very good care of my appliances. I only a mild liquid dish soap, Seventh Generation and a cotton dish cloth to clean & wipe them down. This 36” 5- Burner downdraft gas cooktop was purchased on 06/11/2021 from NFM. This stainless steel cooktop looks as if I’ve had it for many years. Mine you, I take very good care of my appliances and have never used any harsh products to clean them, only use Seventh Generation liquid dish soap and cotton dish cloth to wipe down & clean my appliances. My other kitchen appliances are GE Profile brand such as my 4- Door Refrigerator, Built-In Double oven and Microwave are all stainless steel and have never had this issue. This Kitchen Aid 36” gas cooktop replaced my 2001 Jenn-Air 30” downdraft Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop, which never showed evidence of scratches. This Kitchen Aid Cooktop is a very CHEAP grade of stainless steel. Just poor quality and this cooktop wasn’t cheap. As of 03/25/24 had one of the knob plate cover’s come a loose from around the knob now have to see about getting that address. Apparently a CHEAP glue is used around the On/Off knobs for cooktop. This mess is rapidly falling apart. This product starts to degrade after the (1) year manufacturer’s Warranty has expired. After this experiences I will never buy another Kitchen Aid brand appliance. Extremely disappointed in the quality and workmanship of this brand, Cheap! Cheap! Cheap! I had previously owned a Kitchen Aid refrigerator that lasted 18 yrs before I replaced it with a GE Profile. Kitchen Aid brand has resorted to using Cheap material and yet sticks a pricey tag on them. Their Name brand doesn’t have the same reputation it had years ago.

            Excellent quality cook top!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We love the Kitchenaid gas cook top. However we would like someone to contact us concerning an installation obstacle with the down draft fan. Essentially the exhaust fan is pointed in a different direction than the location of the "already placed" stove pipe exhaust fixture. Are there adapter kits available? Do you have any ideas? We would appreciate someone to contact us via email so that we can work through this obstacle. Thanks

              Love this cooktop!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This stovetop looks fabulous with my granite countertop. I love having 5 burners, and the downdraft is so much quieter than my old back vent.

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Good cooktop, nice looking and good size. It works good except the fan is weak. It doesn’t really filter much.

                  What a Difference
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Recently converted to gas heat and decided the time was right for new cooktop. Saw a KitchenAid add on Facebook and found a winner for our chicken dinner. This cooktop looks fantastic and cooks like a dream come true. Couldn't be happier ☺️.

                    36” KitchenAid Downdraft cooktop
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased the 36” KitchenAid downdraft cooktop about one month ago. We love it and it’s very professional. We love the solid grates and the varied burner btu ratings from 5,000 btu’s up to 17,500 btu’s. It’s beautiful and Abt did a great job on the installation. The downdraft fan works great, is quiet, and doesn’t allow a draft to come through when not using it. This cool top is major league!

                      My favorite part in my kitchen
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We remodeled our house, moved the kitchen and purchased new appliances (all kitchenaid). This cooktop is what my dreams were made of! It’s beautiful and couldn’t be happier to cook on it! (I will say the down draft and I are working on becoming friends though… that’s taking some time to get used to!)

                        A total disaster
                        purchased 36" gas cooktop April 2022. It was delivered April 25 2022. I quickly discovered the imprinting on the stainless steel was very faint in many areas, almost like the machine was running out of ink that stamped it. I contacted home depot and the contacted whirlpool, who owns kitchen-aide. I had two choices either schedule a new replacement delivery and this one, OR keep this one and accept a $174 visa gift card from whirlpool. I chose the gift card and as of July 15th I still don't have it. Over 2 hours on the phone w Whirlpool and they still can't get it straight. My case has been escalated and escalated. Now wishing I would have gone through the hassle of getting the replacement and rescheduling my installer.

                          Great versatile kitchen tool for my needs
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had a cracked Corian cooktop island, so I decided to get it repaired and upgrade the cooktop at the same time. After seeing one of these 5-burner models at a friend's house, I looked into the specifications and knew it would suit my needs well. Boy, am I glad I did! The large burner puts out 17,000 BTU/hr -- a huge step up from 12,000 on our previous cooktop. The small burner, on the other hand, is small and ideal for delicate tasks like melting butter (without burning it). Even the downdraft ventilation fan is industrial grade (in my view). It works really well. I noticed too that the controls span a 180 degree rotation and are pretty darned linear in gas output as you turn them. This is very helpful in turning a burner up or down in a repeatable and predictable manner. Overall, I don't think I could be happier.
