Designed For Your Kitchen
The KitchenAid 36 Electric Downdraft Cooktop w/ 5 Elements features downdraft ventilation that integrates the vent into the cooking surface so you wont need a separate vent hood. The 3-speed, 300 CFM fan helps remove steam, grease and odors from the air. Being convertible to duct-free ventilation allows the downdraft cooktop to be placed nearly anywhere in the kitchen using a duct-free conversion kit. The duct-free kit is not included.
The Perfect Elements
The 10 Even-Heat™ Ultra Element with Simmer Setting gives you more versatility than ever for high and low temperature cooking. A 6 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. A double-ring element is perfect for your 12 or 9 cookware. The 8 round element heats a commonly used pan size and can reach a power output of up to 1800 Watts for everyday use. The 6 round element can reach a power output of up to 1200 Watts to handle your daily cooking needs.
Make Cooking Easier
The CookShield Finish protects the cooktop surface from scratches, helping keep it looking pristine even with frequent use. The power-on indicator light lets you know at a glance when an element is on, while the hot-surface indicator lets you know if any cooking surface is on or still hot. The pure color ceramic-glass surface comes in saturated colors with stainless steel control knobs for a sophisticated, easy-to-clean appearance. Stainless steel knobs enhance the look of the cooktop surface with sturdy construction that adds to their premium feel.
