  • 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 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
    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
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by We are very pleased with the Broan downdraft range ventilator This product does exactly what we expected it to do, was easy to install and is attractive to the eye without being obvious with it presents. February 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Downdraft We were shown this model by our salesperson, after a different sales person had tried to get us to buy an expensive GE Profile model. We compared stats and found this to be quite comparable, and several HUNDRED dollars cheaper . It has done everything we have wanted so far, and would recommend this to others February 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Broan downdraft ventilation system I had model 273003 for twenty years in my house. It is an outstanding product. I never had to have anything repaired on it. My cooktop was on an island and I did not want an overhead hood type exhaust. We are currently building a new home and I am definitely having the same system installed. Great Product. March 20, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hide away exhaust fan This item was exactly what I wanted. Stylish and futuristic while not compromising effectiveness. The telescoping fan works smoothly and quietly, and the fact that the blower is inclusive in this unit saved big dollars and installation work. It i not for the the novice do-it-yourselfer though. A proficiency in using tools, cutting and fitting a unit in place is a must. I recommend the average homeowner should probably hire a professional installer. But if like me you've installed dishwasher, windows, toilets, trash compactors and you want a rewarding and above average challenge, then go for it. My wife initially wanted an overhead exhaust and hood, but is very pleased I talked her into going with this over our island so as not to disturb the open feel of our kitchen. February 20, 2013

    Can't use with a range top?

    We are having a range top on an island; do I understand correctly that this won't be compatible with it? There is no oven component, but since the controls are not on the top with the burners, I'm pretty sure that it slides in/doesn't drop in.
