Description

This KitchenAid gas cooktop has an integrated downdraft ventilation system, a convenient feature that'll spare you the purchase of a separate hood. It filters smoke and smells and redirects everything outside. It can also recirculate filtered air indoors when equipped with a duct-free kit, which can be purchased separately. The 3-speed fan is made to suit your cooking needs, while the 300 CFM evacuation rate complies with the ventilation requirements for searing and stir-frying. The appliance has powerful 15,000-BTU and 17,000-BTU burners that quickly bring water to a boil. There's also a 5000-BTU Even-Heat burner to properly simmer sauces, or melt butter and chocolate without scorching. The reliable cooktop has a pilotless electronic ignition system and an automatic reignition feature to ensure that the burner is relit if the flame goes out.
  • 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
  • 17K BTU Professional burner provides the ability to use high-temperature cooking methods such as searing, stir-frying, and wok cooking as well as low temperatures suitable for simmering
  • 5K BTU Even-Heat(TM) 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
  • 3-speed fan control can be precisely matched to cooking needs, effectively removing steam, grease, and odors from the air
  • 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
  • Convertible to duct-free ventilation - allows a downdraft cooktop to be placed nearly anywhere in the kitchen using a duct-free conversion kit (sold separately part# JDA7000WX)
  • 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
  • Electronic ignition and automatic re-ignition lights burners with an electric spark instead of a pilot light - for more reliable performance, burners are re-lit if the flame is blown out

We are replacing all major appliances with Kitchenaid. I would like to know if the 36" gas cooktop has a griddle option. In other words, can I purchase a griiddle separately that would work with this model.

KitchenAid Downdraft Gas Cooktop - 5 Burners - 36-in - Stainless Steel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 303.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from FAN SPEED & DECIBLES [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The look of the cooktop is great. Space for pans is very good. THE BAD: The fan is way, way too loud, even on low. The LOW setting is so high that water did not boil on the 15,000 BTU burner even after 45 minutes as the heat and flame are sucked off. I have to turn the fan off in order to get a reasonable flame to the pan which is very dangerous. The fan dial does not shut off. Repairman is in the process of getting a new dial. There is a major design flaw with the fan. At least put a rheostat style dial control that can be set to a lower speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5 burners are amazing [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the 5 burners! I’ve never cooked with gas so that is a learning curve. The sleek look compliments my island.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought on April 2024 . The price is too high. Happy for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the BEST 36.5 gas downdraft cooktops. I bought this item over a year ago. It is a great cooktop but the knobs are plastic. The color came off the knobs and the bottom part of the knob that is affixed to the cooktop came loose after about six months of cleaning. There is a stick tape that holds it in place. I did call customer service and voiced my concerns. I was told that knobs were not a warranty and that I had to buy replacement parts or glue it back on myself. For this cooktop's price, all components should be quality metal materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had it for one month. It is easy to use and looks very good in our kitchen remodel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from CHEAP Material Quality A year after purchasing this stainless steel Gas cooktop looks like a cat got on it & clawed at it, cause the stainless steel around the burners are so scratched up. Mind you I take very good care of my appliances. I only a mild liquid dish soap, Seventh Generation and a cotton dish cloth to clean & wipe them down. This 36” 5- Burner downdraft gas cooktop was purchased on 06/11/2021 from NFM. This stainless steel cooktop looks as if I’ve had it for many years. Mine you, I take very good care of my appliances and have never used any harsh products to clean them, only use Seventh Generation liquid dish soap and cotton dish cloth to wipe down & clean my appliances. My other kitchen appliances are GE Profile brand such as my 4- Door Refrigerator, Built-In Double oven and Microwave are all stainless steel and have never had this issue. This Kitchen Aid 36” gas cooktop replaced my 2001 Jenn-Air 30” downdraft Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop, which never showed evidence of scratches. This Kitchen Aid Cooktop is a very CHEAP grade of stainless steel. Just poor quality and this cooktop wasn’t cheap. As of 03/25/24 had one of the knob plate cover’s come a loose from around the knob now have to see about getting that address. Apparently a CHEAP glue is used around the On/Off knobs for cooktop. This mess is rapidly falling apart. This product starts to degrade after the (1) year manufacturer’s Warranty has expired. After this experiences I will never buy another Kitchen Aid brand appliance. Extremely disappointed in the quality and workmanship of this brand, Cheap! Cheap! Cheap! I had previously owned a Kitchen Aid refrigerator that lasted 18 yrs before I replaced it with a GE Profile. Kitchen Aid brand has resorted to using Cheap material and yet sticks a pricey tag on them. Their Name brand doesn’t have the same reputation it had years ago.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Issues [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Two issues: The burners turn from off to high, then med, then low. Seems that is backwards as I should start the burner at low and then move to high. Additionally, the stove does not clean well. Looks scratched and streakey.
Date published: 2024-03-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality cook top! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We love the Kitchenaid gas cook top. However we would like someone to contact us concerning an installation obstacle with the down draft fan. Essentially the exhaust fan is pointed in a different direction than the location of the "already placed" stove pipe exhaust fixture. Are there adapter kits available? Do you have any ideas? We would appreciate someone to contact us via email so that we can work through this obstacle. Thanks
