When Smoke Gets In Your Eyes…

KTAdwndrftONrevWhen it comes to replacing a downdraft range there are a few solid options. It is a common situation that may come up when trying to retro-fit an appliance that has cooked its last meal; or a kitchen remodel is in the works and ventilation hanging within the design space just ruins “the flow”. If this is your conundrum, there are solutions.




Ideally having overhead ventilation is the way to go, but let’s face it. Overhead ventilation may obstruct a clean, sweet, streamlined view that may only be achieved by keeping hanging, albeit useful, objects out of the air space above the range. Perhaps the vision included an open concept and powerful ventilation isn’t a top priority. So what’s a chef to do?


Both KitchenAid and JennAir offer downdraft ranges in sleek options both in dual fuel or electric, while JennAir offers two handle options along with a color choice of black. With oven capacities that range from 6.2-6.4 cubic feet, three convection cooking modes,  and AquaLift® Self Clean, the only thing left to do is to choose the knob and handle style that suits your style. MSRP varies from $2999 to $3599. We will have a JennAir model arriving on our floor next week. Stop by and see it!JennAir
