What is a Downdraft Range or Cooktop?
Downdraft ranges and cooktops are available in gas or electric configurations and feature an integrated venting system built into the surface of the cooktop. You can also find downdraft venting in downdraft hoods that install behind a traditional range or cooktop. These systems eliminate the need for overhead venting by a traditional range hood or over-the-range microwave, clearing up space above the cooktop and creating a sleek aesthetic in the kitchen.
