Advice for downdraft cooktop?
In our current home we have an OTR microwave, it isn't vented outside, and has a 300 CFM fan. Our range is a gas Maytag.
In the new build, there will be a KitchenAid Architect Series II KGCD807XSS gas downdraft cooktop. It is vented to the outside, and is rated at 325 CFM.
My question is will this be ok? I typically brown hamburger, or make chicken (for stir-fry, etc). I don't sear anything. I usually don't use oil, except for a little in the stir-fry.
I've noticed that the upper cabinets are messy from the current situation, and I don't want a repeat of that. The builder wants alot of money to put in a range hood, and only has a few options to choose from.
