Product Reviews
Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great, works great. We have a center island and the downdraft is the easiest way for us to vent. We upgraded from an older version of this model (white) and purchased the stainless steel for a sleeker look. Because we had the existing duct work, the installation was a snap. Performance appears to be a little better as the pop up hood is taller than our older version, so more air/steam gets pulled into the vent. The placement of buttons and switch now makes more sense. Overall, it does exactly what a vent should do. 9/17/07
Rated 1 out of 5 by Work product ever made Poorly designed. Was installed in a brand new home in 2008. It is delicate to use, control board blows too easy. The switch looks like a thermometer you stick on a child's forehead. Very costly to repair. Plan to pull it out and put in a ventless exhaust hood (wish the builder had told us there were other options) 11/17/14
