HELP! 30" Island Dual Fuel downdraft or ???

Posted by MCDAN (My Page) on

We are moving to a new home and leaving a complete Thermador 36" dual fuel stove, triple oven unit, dishwasher,and upscale refrig. We are trying to at least duplicate what we had as far as a stove (new would have to be 30") for starters The current stove is a Jenn-Aire slide in with downdraft venting (probably 25 years old). From what I've read, a new Jenn-Aire is not the way to go for numerous reasons and problems. I cannot install an overhead hood that exhausts outside so my choices seem to be eithr a free standing exhaust, another manufacturer of downdraft stoves (there aren't many - Dacor w/modules?) or no exhaust. I could REALLY use your expertise and suggestions. I am willing to spend whatever to make the transition eaiser for my wife. Thanks for your help ...

RE: HELP! 30" Island Dual Fuel downdraft or ???

While downdrafts are far from ideal, you can get separate venting units which are better than the ones built into a stove top. Try searching on terms such as "telescoping + downdraft + vent" and "pop-up vent." If you go out to google or other extrenal search engine (sometimes works better than the internal one here), add "+ gardenweb" to the search string to get the search to focus on discussions here.
