Blue Star drop in cooktop with downdraft?
I need to replace a jenn air cooktop on my island. Due to costs, the replacement will be be another drop in cooktop with downdraft/pop-up ventilation. I know most on this forum are anti pop-up/downdraft ventilation, but it's our only viable option. I was planning to get the six burner 36" Viking Pro drop in cooktop, but after reading this forum have concerns although I don't think I have seen negative posts specifically on the cooktop itself. I would love to go with the Blue Star drop in cooktop as it seems to get positive reviews here. Their site strongly suggests an overhead hood, but does mention under FAQ that a downdraft may be used. Does anyone have experience with the Blue Star drop in cooktop and downdraft? Any thoughts/feedback would be appreciated. I considered Capital, but the center Wok grate is not useful for us. I wish I liked the Wolf more...visually, the knob placement bothers me. I want a reliable cooktop that also looks good...especially since it is so visible on the island. Thank you in advance!
