Downdraft ventilation is a type of ventilation in cooktops and kitchen ranges that pulls cooking fumes and smoke downward. A downdraft ventilation feature is a substitute for a traditional range hood that sucks smoke and steam upward. In addition to ventilating gas and electric stoves from fumes and smoke, a downdraft cooktop offers a modern look in an updated kitchen. The sleekly designed cooktop even allows room for extra cabinets where you would typically place a range hood.
