  • Good bang for buck
    Reviewed by Cofish99 - August 23, 2018

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this a month ago and did the install ourselves. This was to replace a Jenn Air unit that was a stove top with downdraft unit together. Directions were good and videos assisted with ease of install. I did have to move the outward air inside the cabinet, but that is not unit related. We have used the unit several times and really like the height and cfm. This sucks in steam from our 9” stock pot. This is so much better than the prior unit that was only burner high. I cannot give this or any other downdraft unit a full 5 stars because they cannot do what an overhead system can. Compared to all the other units, this is definitely worth the price!

  • Very poor performance.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by LIZZIE01 - December 23, 2013

    I have had this product for less than a year and already it has been replaced completely under the warranty. The second one still 'sticks' when in elevation mode and doesn't come up all the way - this will probably have to be replaced too. It's noisy when the extractor fans are turned on and it doesn't remove cooking odors, steam, fumes etc. which is the whole point of having it - our venting system is excellent - there are no blockages - so why doesn't the downdraft suck away fumes etc? I would NOT recommend this product to anyone - along with my new Kitchenaid 48" built-in, side-by-side refrigerator - the ice maker has been replaced once already and now the new one has ceased to work - we're waiting for a new 'shoot' - meanwhile - no ice also less than a year old!

  • When it works, it works very well
    Reviewed by Psi5 - January 23, 2015

    When the vent is operating, it is terrific. I was worried about a "downdraft" vent with gas burners so got this one. It extends very high, as high as my tallest stock pot and so vents efficiently without "stealing" heat from the burners. It is not quiet but it is effective. That said, it has been serviced once and replaced once within the first 2 years of ownership. To KA's credit, they covered it even when out of warranty but I cannot rate it higher (and probably should rate it lower) given the reliability issues.
