Interesting facts about Cooktops with Downdraft Venting

Smoke, heat, steam and food odors can turn cooking into unpleasant and tiresome process, but installation of a cooktop with downdraft can become an efficient solution to this problem. These units are beneficial for kitchens with poor ventilation system or for small rooms, with lack of free space for a cooker hood. Actually this item creates a draft that exhausts odors and heat downwards and out, through the inbuilt venting system.

Downdraft cooktops are available in several types: gas and electric. The selection of a definite product type depends on your requirements and preferences mostly. Both of these types are efficient and convenient, but if you don't have a hook-up to a gas line, than an electric model can become a wise and affordable alternative.

According to the reviews, most downdraft cooktops are available with 30- and 36-inches width and they are designed with 4 or 5 burners. There are also professional-style items, which are wider (about 48-inches) and have more burners (6 or even more). All the models are functional and powerful. They are often installed in kitchen islands and modern open kitchen styles. One of the latest introductions, downdraft induction cooktop, can become an advanced, stylish and easy-to-use addition to any kitchen interior.

If you thinking of purchasing a downdraft cooktop, you should keep in mind that these items can turn out to be more expensive, than their traditional gas or electric counterparts. But they can provide you with additional advantages and comfortable conditions, while cooking.
