  • Innovative downdraft system compatible with virtually all self-contained cooktops. Sleek, trim styling complements any cooktop style or color. Automatically raises into position with the touch of a button. Disappears flush with cooktop surface.

    Space-saving design lets you make the most of precious, under-counter cabinet space. Infinitely adjustable speed control is flush with the side of the unit; inconspicuous, yet easy to reach and simple to use. Blower discharges right, left or down and slides side-to-side to ease installation (insufficient space for built-in ovens). Front access panel allows easy cleaning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great style and features My wife and I are very impressed with the quality of this product. It is stylish, operationally flawless and feature-laden. April 28, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Like the speed control good design for a small space, difficult to install due to space constraints. Wish it would raise higher to catch more cooking odors. April 28, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 20, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we needed This was a good price, delivered promptly and arrived in damaged July 12, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. October 1, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 September 4, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Very effective Very effective in removing cooking odors. It is fairly loud and not easy to clean. March 15, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 10, 2014

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on down draft kitchen exhaust systems. You may want to look at a Best Cattura model D49M series downdraft system. It can be installed with a free–standing range, drop–in cooktop, gas or electric cooktop, slide–in range or a built–in oven with a cooktop. You can view these at www.bestrangehoods.com. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
