Electric Cooktop with Downdraft - Replacing an Old Unit?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Mar 16, 2020 9:15 AM 

 

The downdraft cooktop, originally manufactured and sold exclusively by JennAir, offers a unique combination of cooking and venting in one appliance. If you are replacing an older JennAir electric cooktop with downdraft, you now have options from GE, Frigidaire, and KitchenAid that offer the same combination of cooking and venting as well as new options in styling, features and price points. Although downdraft ranges are getting hard to find, downdraft cooktops are still kicking!

GE Profile and KitchenAid offer electric cooktops (and gas cooktops as well) with downdraft in 30-inch widths. You can also find 36-inch models from Frigidaire Professional and KitchenAid, although Frigidaire has discontinued their lineup and it is uncertain if they will update it with new models. The KitchenAid 36" models come with five burners. More choices are always better, and these companies offer great products in this and every appliance category. Let’s take a look at a couple of the best downdraft electric cooktop models on the market!

The 5 Best Induction Cooktop Models of 2020

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Dec 9, 2019 10:31 AM 

 

Stovetops with induction offer quick heating times and fine-tuned temperature adjustments while keeping your kitchen and the stovetop surface cool, since induction transmits heat directly into your cookware. Magnetic induction elements heat faster than electric elements, and spills won't turn into a hard crust on your cooktop since the cooktop doesn't get hot. (Read more about induction here.) Once you have a set of magnetic pots and pans, you're ready to start cooking with induction! If you're looking for a new cooktop and are interested in going for induction technology, our reviews of the best induction cooktops should help you get started.

The models are listed in no particular order but are numbered for your convenience! They are all 30" models, but we link to 36" models where available. Prices range from $799 to $1,999, although holiday sales and package deals can save you 20% or more off the MSRP. Let's dig in!
