ventilation for slide in range on island

13 years ago

Hoping someone will have some suggestions for us. Right now we have an old Jenn Air electric cooktop in our kitchen island. It has downdraft that we NEVER use. We want to replace it with a slide in dual fuel range. We are pretty sure our towns building codes require ventilation over a gas range. Which leaves us with either getting a hood over our range, which we definitely do not want, or getting a range with down draft. (I'm told you cannot get a range with the pop up ventilation) The problem we are running into is that the only slide in range with down draft that we can find is the Jenn Air, which has gotten very mixed reviews. Does anyone know of any other options or if anyone owns a down draft dual fuel Jenn Air could you please give me your feedback on it. Thanks so much!
