    The way filters were installed when manufactures caused the corner of one to stick out far beyond the face of the downdraft. The sharp metal corner caught the edge of the glass cooktop on the way up and shattered the glass. Installation was correct with the right spacing. Now I have a downdraft that is useless and a cooktop that needs a $1000 part from a different manufacturer. Lesson is raise the down draft before you install your cooktop to see if it is defective.

    So far the downdraft system works great. Love that the fan isn't loud until it's at its highest speed. Since our cooktop is on an island it also serves as a splash guard to stuff getting on the floor.

    Powerful, Elegant, Cool

    This exhaust fan really "sucks"! It is very powerful. When installing this unit, make sure you have good ventilation. I had to add vents below the cabinet in order for the vent to go full force. Before I did that, it would pull in the gas flames, it was so strong. When it raises from the counter, everyone stares in awe. It quietly rises and turns on. And then when you're done, it just disappears. When we cook for parties, all our guests just gush over it.

    great downdraft for limited space

    Posted .

    Glides up & down smoothly. Large surface area for the vent openings. Absorbs cooking odors well so far. Fairly quiet motor. The on/off button was scratched on arrival so I'm still waiting for replacement

    Product requires a lot of planning to install

    An installation video would be very helpful as I'm not certain how to proceed with new cabinets and stone counter tops... A mistake could be costly. I hope it works as well as the rest of my KitchenAid products.

    Failed to suck in air at all and needs to press the on/ off button a few times to keep it To stay in an upright position. Before I can use it, I have callled kitchenaid to get it repaired already. A lemon product.

    Pros mentioned:
    Performance

    Wanted to upgrade our downdraft system when we bought a new gas cooktop. There weren’t a lot of options out there. The BB customer service rep recommended this model and we’ve been happy with both the performance and the noise level (not too loud). Really like that it has multiple settings, which allows you to match the fan speed to what you’re cooking (steam level).

    Pros mentioned:
    Design

    needs to be greased sometimes on the right or left side so it doesn't make sounds when it goes up or down. Other than that, it's amazing. sleek design and strong.
