Induction cooktop & downdraft in 24" island cabinet?

Posted by bbp1 (My Page) on

Hi, this is my first post. I've been reading some here and trying the search function, but have had very little luck using the search although I'm sure this has been covered.

We currently have an 30" electric cooktop w/ built in downdraft in our island. We are replacing the countertop with granite and want to upgrade the cooktop to 36". There isn't a gas line run to the island so we are stuck with some form of electric. I would like to try induction. I haven't seen an induction cooktop with downdraft built in, so we are stuck adding a retractable downdraft. The countertop will be cut on site so that isn't an issue.

My question, is it possible to fit an induction cooktop and downdraft into a standard 24" depth cabinet? And if so, which one? I am trying to stick to the medium priced brands, Kitchenaid, GE, Kenmore, maybe Bosch.

I know downdraft isn't the way to go, but it is our only option.

Thanks for any help

Not possible. You need overhead venting. Or a 30'' deep space.

Thank you for your response. When you say 30" deep space are you referring to the countertop being 30" or the inside cabinet depth?

I installed a GE Monogram 30" in a 24" with downdraft in a 24" island. Looks and works great. Google monogram induction specifications, which ensure it can be done!
