This 36" 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.

Features:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 300 CFM Exhaust Rating - Handles the venting requirements of high temperature cooking techniques like pan searing and stir-frying.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Stainless Steel Knobs - Enhance the look of the cooktop surface with sturdy construction that adds to their premium feel.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Controls are poor.

Submitted by JP - 7/27/2017

I have had this cooktop for a couple of months now. It looks nice but the controls function poorly making it difficult to use. The first 50% of burner control range does not reduce the flame at all. Almost all of the flame control is limited to the lower 10% of knob range. This lack of control makes this product a poor choice. What is sad is that a better selection of control (relatively minor part) would have made this a much better product.

No, I do not recommend this product

Submitted by dbow - 7/19/2017

This is a new product for KitchenAid, so I took a chance as I have had downdraft systems before (Dacor.) We vented to the outside of home, so you will need appropriate venting system in addition to cooktop. Not crazy about the loose placement of the grill in vent area. Also, we had a faulty ignitor and are currently waiting for the replacement part. Have to light manually, but the burners work just fine. I think I am going to like it. For the price compared to Dacor, Wolfe, and other high end cooktops, it seems to be just as functional. Have not finished hooking up vent system until part arrives for ignition.

I don't love inanimate objects, but if I did, I'd love this!

Submitted by Bird - 7/13/2017

I had been without a cooktop for about three months. My old one was so unpredictable that I'd quit cooking on it. Finally, my son and daughter (who both live out of state and came for a visit) shamed me into getting a new one. I've never been so glad to be shamed before! I have enjoyed getting back into the swing of things.

Kichenaid 36" Gas Cooktop w/downdraft

Submitted by Woodie - 7/4/2017

I searched for a cooktop with a built-in downdraft system for months. Of all the cooktops I reasearched this particular KitchenAid was declared the best by many industry experts. After installing it and using it for a month, I can affirm the claims. It's functional, extremely well designed and built, and most importantly the downdraft system is amazing. It pulls the steam vapor and odors out of the kitchen really well. I'm very pleased!!

Best choice to replace a 36 inch downdraft gas cooktop

Submitted by Philip - 6/26/2017

The cooktop has burners that range from 5 BTU to 17.5 BTU to provide rapid cooking and boiling. The downdraft if quite strong without distorting the flame. Gorgeous with great grates. Hard to clean the switches. Stainless surface cleans easily with Simple Green or Affresh cooktop cleaner.

Beautiful cooktop! I just love it!!

Submitted by Lori - 6/17/2017

To be honest, when I saw this cooktop on the computer, I didn't care for the look of it. There weren't many options to choose from and did eventually order it. I am SO glad I did! Everytime I walk into my kitchen, I just have to glance over to look at my new, beautiful cooktop! There isn't anything I don't like about it. It's easy to clean, it's so quiet and it looks great! I highly recommend it -

Disappointing cooktop

Submitted by disappointed customer - 6/16/2017

The KitchenAid cooktop is basically the same as the JennAir version. The specs are the same. I've had a Jennair down draft cooktop for the last 20 years. I've always thought it didn't get hot enough for searing food. It came with the house we bought and it has a down draft. When we remodeled our kitchen, we replace the JennAir cooktop. Tried to find other downdraft cooktops but, there just isn't many out there, so we thought we would be stuck spending a lot of money for another JennAir. When we saw the KitchenAid cooktop with the same specs as the jennAir but a lot less cost, I thought we've got a good deal. Yes, the price is more reasonable than JennAir's but the output of the burners are disappointing. It's supposed to have a 17,000 BTU burner, but it doesn't seem to heat up any faster or get any hotter than my old JennAir cooktop which only had 9,000 BTU (I think). I was looking forward to this high output burner to providing the sizzling of meats when I cook. May have to get rid of the downdraft for exhaust and put a new hood in to buy a real cooktop.

No, I do not recommend this product

Wonderful Gas Cooktop, looks great in the kitchen

Submitted by JR - 6/16/2017

My wife and I recently purchased the Kitchen Aid 5- burner gas cooktop with downdraft venting. We are very pleased with its style, appearance and performance and thus far have not experienced any problems. We previously had a Kitchen Aid electric cooktop installed and converted to the gas cooktop. What a world of difference and glad we made the change.

extra high power burner on side is great!

Submitted by Tink - 6/13/2017

I bought it about 2 months back and really enjoy the high BTUs. Only downside is burners are much closer than I expected. Also, one thing I would change is make a removable tray for the downdraft filter so easier to clean up the food that falls down
