Product Overview

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.
  • 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

Nice unit looks great
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I remodeled my kitchen moved up from a 30 inch GE profile downdraft to this 36 inch unit. It’s attractive and the fan is quiet. The only thing that could have made this nicer is offering the Bluetooth capability.

5 Burners is a MUST!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to clean and plenty of room to cook at a variety of temps with numerous pan/pot sizes.

Burner problem
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had this installed 1 week ago and this morning while cooking, 3 of the burners spontaneously cracked.
by Upsetburner
Outstanding performance!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased this KitchenAid cooktop to replace a similar aging Jenn-Air and we are extremely happy with it. The burners' responsiveness and performance are beyond our expectations and with the cooktops high capacity, easily support the cooking needs of our large family.

Outstanding Cooktop

by Chef Boyardee
Beautiful!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased my downdraft cooktop and had installed 2 weeks ago. It is hard to put into words how much I love it. Controlling the temperature is so easy, and having the 5 burners works out great. The downdraft is perfect. I absolutely have nothing bad to say about it. It looks great in my kitchen! Thank you kitchenaid for making such a great cooktop.
by Char9
Perfect cooking.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a downdraft that matched my oven combination and this was my only option in 36 inches. I picked it from a photo and am so glad I did. It looks beautiful and works great.
