How To Measure For A New Cooktop
Taking accurate measurements in your home is critical when planning to buy a new cooktop. Here are step by step instructions on how to do it correctly.

Product Overview

This 36 in. electric cooktop features Downdraft, an integrated ventilation system that doesn't require a separate hood. A 10 in. EVEN-HEAT ultra-element provides versatility for both high and low-temperature cooking and has multiple simmer settings. And with a 3-speed fan with 300 CFM exhaust rating, the venting can keep up with your culinary feats.
  • 6 in. Even-Heat Element with melt setting combines the benefits of Even-Heat Technology with a dedicated setting that reaches the low temperatures needed to melt chocolate or butter without scorching
  • 3-Speed Fan Control can be precisely matched to cooking needs, effectively removing steam, grease, and odors from the air
  • 10 in. Even-Heat Ultra element with simmer setting provides more versatility for high and low temperature cooking techniques. Even-Heat Technology maintains a constant supply of power and delivers a range of simmer settings
  • 6 in. Round Element can reach a power output of up to 1200-Watt to handle your daily cooking needs
  • CookShield finish for glass surface protects the cooktop surface from scratches, helping keep it looking pristine even with frequent use
  • Pure color ceramic-glass surface comes in saturated colors with stainless steel control knobs for a sophisticated, easy-to-clean appearance
  • 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
  • Hot-Surface Indicator provides a clear indication that lets you know if any cooking surface is on or still hot
  • Power-On indicator light lets you know at a glance when an element is on
  • 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
  • 10 in./6 in. ULTRA POWER Double-Ring round element provides the ability to use it for large stock pots or 6 in. saute pans and handle tasks ranging from rapid boiling and searing to wok cooking

I am in love!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was installed a month ago. I bought my house 10 years ago, and had an old jennaire unit. I agonized about this decision for a few years before finally deciding on this unit. I could not be happier with my choice! The burners are fast, and the temperature control on this is incredible. The fan power on the downdraft is powerful, clearing any smoke quickly that the family chef may make (me, and I’m a great smoke maker lol). I am so happy that I purchased this unit. It cleans up quickly with the right materials, and it looks fantastic in my kitchen. I. Am. In. Love!

    Awesome Cooktop!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great cooktop! Very clean look and matches our stainless steel kitchen appliances. Heats up quick and provides even heating with dual coils.

      Love the new features!
      My wife and I just updated our kitchen and replaced the old smaller electric cooktop with this Kitchenaid model. The old unit was still working but showing it's age and the new cooktop gave us an extra burner plus it has many updated features. The temperture settings are MUCH improved over our old cooktop. It was very difficult to get the correct setting for simmer but the Kitchenaid has many additional settings that helps you get the right temperature for your needs. I also like the downdraft fan better in the Kitchenaid. Much quieter and seems to do a better job than the cooktop we replaced.

        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was looking for a cooktop with a down draft for my island. This one looks great with the granite plus the down draft works good especially when cooking fish.

          Awesome Features!!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was installed during a custom build and I am so happy with our choice. It's easy to clean, heats up really fast and it fits in perfect with our modern theme. The downdraft feature works even better than I thought it would.

            Love the extra large eye
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased last month. We are a family of 10 and the pots and pans we use are large. The large eye provides excellent efficiency for me at meal times.

              We purchased this cooktop when we redid our kitchen. I used the cerama bryte cleaner and noticed this morning that the ultra heat - even heat element is discolored with blues, purple color under the glass. I am concerned that is could explode - I have never seen this before.

                Knob markings
                I just had this installed. The cooktop works great - I’m only very disappointed that the markings on the left side of the knobs, are extremely faded. I expected more from Kitchen Aid.

                  Looks good works ok
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased this because we weren’t ready to do major demo. Our existing cooktop is downdraft and the choices were limited. We purchased other appliances through KitcheAid so decided to go with them. We were however disappointed to see that the cooktop does not sit flush on our countertop something they could have disclosed before purchase. There is a quarter inch gap allowing food and fluids to seep through. Also the downdraft feature is very poor and unless you are using the burner closest to the vent, it’s useless. My opinion this was an overpriced low quality purchase.

                    Love the Downdraft
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had a GE downdraft for 20 years but it finally died. In researching replacement downdraft stovetops, this was the only one available at a decent price. All others were EXTREMELY high priced.
