Product Details

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
  • Installation is not available in all locations, see store for details

        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.

              Modernized Cooktop
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just bought this Energy efficient stovetop and absolute love it.. It saves me time because it has five burners as my old one had two. It turns on instantly. Love it.

                It amazingly functional and absolutely beautiful! The knobs are...
                It amazingly functional and absolutely beautiful! The knobs are sleek and feel good to the touch. The intensity of the flame is just perfect for me. The down draft is not noisy. But I am afraid sometime in the future I might spill food and over time the splatters might make it hard to clean and if I do get them cleaned I might scratch the surface of the stainless steel. I am still thinking of a way to minimize spill and splatters. I truly love this cooktop. It took me so long to decide and I believe I have picked the best one in the market for us. It makes my kitchen looks beautiful. One caution though I think there might be a problem with installing of the cooktop due to the measurements. The measurements might be off. I saw our granite fabricator took the model number for measurements. But on the day of installing they said the size was wrong but it was easy for them, they took the granite out and cut it on our drive way. I read a review saying he too had a problem with the measurements. So beware.

                  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.

                        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.

                          [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.
