The KitchenAid KSEG950ESS electric slide-in range includes a downdraft ventilation system designed to eliminate smoke from stovetop cooking. It’s not perfect, but the system makes this $3,149 range stand out.

    Great job Ashlee. Very well covered. Too much money for most consumers I would think.

    A company named "bora" makes much better looking downdraft ventilation systems!

    Can you do a review on some Wolf and Subzero appliances. There aren't any proper review of those companies on youtube.

    The best ones are the standalone overhead ventilation units. And they should be in the vicinity of ~300 ft^3/h I bellieve. In my old house, we have a microwave with a built in ventilation unit and it sucked balls and the smoke would eventually trigger the smoke alarms in the house. Which in a house where everybody had variable work hours (such as someone working nights) it would suddenly wake them up. Plus if you are buying an oven, get a gas oven, trust me been using an electric for a long time and just switched to gas, and will never go back after this.

    What if you spilled something into the vent? I feel like it'd make a mess!

    I have a minimalist kitchen with an open island cooktop. i chose a Kenmore downdraft (gas) after using one for 16 years with zero problems. (It was about 30% less.) Don't get more than you need! (This applies to computers, cars or appliances.) I cook bacon in the oven, rarely fry and have three grills so it's minimal. For heavy use get an overhead vent.
