Rated 5 out of 5 by MrRoper Love it.
We installed the 500 CFM Downdraft behind a 30 inch slide in gas range, we were very happy that it was so easy. You'll love it as much as we do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vk72 Good idea; some work needs doing on the implementation
I do really like my Downdraft. I have no other way of getting rid of cooking smoke, etc. My one big complaint: You can't clean it below the filters. I'm sure there is stuff that drips down the sides of it, but I can't get to any of it to clean it. I think, over time, it will build up and smell, as well as attract bugs. That's a real flaw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FriscoKid Good vent for the price
I really like the way this vent works - I didnt give it perfect scores for two reasons -
I was putting it in where I previously had a downdraft stove - to connect the vent to the previous opening took a lot of creativity. If the vent wasnt so tall or you could place the exhaust on either side, it would be helpful providing more room for installation.
the suction is good, not great - I think if you buy the external fan, it prvides more suction, but it also makes the unit more expensive. Overall good, not great. but still worth the money

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mariola Very effective
Very effective in removing cooking odors. It is fairly loud and not easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elwood Beautifully matches our new induction cooktop. Much more powerful and effective than the other (not Broan) was.
The Broan downdraft works great! It matches the new induction cooktop and pops up and does its job! We really like the infinitely adjustable fan speed control. A mid-range setting is usually plenty, but a couple of times we used the maximum and it quickly cleared the air!. It is reasonably quiet for most use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thisissandy Powerful and quiet with adjustable fan.
We've been pleased with the downdraft ventilation so far. It is powerful and not very loud. I like the fact that the fan speed is adjustable. We ordered it to be installed in our new house by our builder, so can't really comment on the ease of installation. The only negative I can think of is that when the weather is cold outside, you can feel air draft around the unit on the counter top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bayler downdraft
This item arrived on time and in good condition. I have not used it yet since my house remodel is in it final stages. But have used it in testing. While another customer indicated that it was usable with a complete oven and stove top, it was not an easy task. I would like to see a downdraft that is designed to be used with the entire stove not just stove top. I love the look of the counter top area.
