Downdraft cooktops combine versatility with raw cooking power to get delicious meals on the table. The downdraft ventilation system uses hidden fans to keep odors and smoke from hanging around the kitchen. Downdraft cooktop ventilation gets rid of the need for bulky overhead hoods, and gives your kitchen a streamlined look. Cooktop fans deliver ventilation up to 525 cu. ft. per minute of airflow. This is 175 CFM more than the average recommended CFM speed, ensuring total odor and smoke removal. Kenmore downdraft cooktops are available in both gas and electric model.
