The KitchenAid 36" Electric Downdraft Cooktop KCED606GSS expertly combines expansive cooking capability with an integrated ventilation system, making it a stellar choice for any modern kitchen layout. This 36-inch cooktop is equipped with five radiant elements that provide a wide range of power for both high-heat cooking and gentle simmering. The built-in downdraft ventilation system captures smoke, steam, and odors right at the cooking surface, eliminating the need for an overhead hood and maintaining a clean, fresh kitchen environment. The sleek stainless steel design and touch-activated controls contribute to a clean aesthetic, blending seamlessly into a variety of kitchen styles while offering intuitive usability.

Highlights

  • Five Radiant Elements: Includes a 12"/9"/6" Triple-Ring Round Element that can handle various sizes of cookware, perfect for large pots and pans, providing versatile cooking options from searing to simmering.

  • Downdraft Ventilation System: Integrated ventilation system that automatically starts and adjusts speed according to the heat being produced, efficiently clearing the air without a separate hood.

  • Even-Heat™ Ultra Element: Provides consistent heat across the cooktop, especially useful for simmering sauces, melting chocolate, or achieving a gentle boil.

  • 300 CFM Exhaust Rating: Handles the venting requirements of high-temperature cooking techniques like pan searing and stir-frying.

  • Convertible to Duct-Free Ventilation: Offers the option to install a duct-free filter kit (sold separately) to allow for a ventless downdraft exhaust.

  • 10-inch Even-Heat™ Ultra Element with Simmer Setting: Delivers precise low temperatures needed for simmering and delicate sauces, ensuring even and consistent heating.

  • Power-On Indicator Light: Shows at a glance if any cooktop element is turned on, providing a safety feature that alerts you to an active cooking surface.

  • Hot Surface Indicator: Alerts you to surfaces that are still hot to the touch, enhancing overall kitchen safety.

  • Pure Color Ceramic-Glass Surface: The elegant black surface is easy to clean and maintain, providing a high-impact design aesthetic that complements the overall kitchen environment.

  • Stainless Steel Knobs: Robust, durable knobs offer a touch of sophistication and ease of use for precise control over the cooktop's heat output.

  • Bridge Element: Combines two 7-inch elements, so you can cook with griddles, grills, or roasting pans.

  • Control Lock Function: Prevents unintended activation of the cooktop, enhancing safety particularly in households with children.
