Rated 4 out of 5 by Poorer but happier post purchase Superior engineering
I replaced a 1999 Kitchenaid downdraft with the Bosch unit. The blower was sold separately to give the option of acquiring an external blower. I think buying ala carte made the blower more pricy than it needed to be. It is a bit smaller than the unit it replaced, but provides much better suction. Compared to the Kitchenaid, the engineering of the Bosch product was far superior.
