Our Recommendations

KitchenAid has spent decades creating innovative products for the well-equipped kitchen. From commercial grade cooktops and wine cellars to stand mixers and an impressive assortment of cookware, bakeware and accessories, they offer virtually every culinary essential you could need.

Architect Series II
Architect Series II appliances are an evolution of performance and intuitive design that was inspired by, and created for, those who love to cook and entertain. The timeless appearance of the Architect Series II comes in the form of robust contoured handles and knobs, rounded corners, and seamless stainless steel edges. Mouthwatering performance is reflected in adjustable settings, intuitive displays and control graphics, and complementary features designed to work together for a smooth cooking experience.

KitchenAid is clearing the way with a retractable downdraft system that is 14" high, rising further above the cooktop to capture steam from tall stockpots and other cookware. The added height combines with a powerful external output to exhaust up to 900 CFM.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exhaust Pro We replaced our 16 year old downdraft (300 cfm, under cabinet fan) with a new KitchenAid unit (900 cfm, exterior mounted fan) in a kitchen island. It's like night and day... this downdraft exhausts like a champ! I liked this unit for 2 reasons, first, the controls are on the top and side, so we didn't need to install a control pad in the (newly installed) granite counters. Second, since this unit exhausts on either side, we were able to vent the downdraft in a small sink base cabinet verses in the cabinet under the cook top. With the exterior fan, this downdraft is very quiet. We have been doing a lot of stove top grilling, and have not had any exhaust problems. 11/17/10
