How Does An Electric Downdraft Cooktop Work? Have you used or heard of an electric downdraft cooktop? If no, we are going to tell you about it. The downdraft cooktop or range integrates the ventilation system into the cooking surface directly. It prevents the need for an overhead vent. It helps capture steam, smoke, odor, and grease particles on the cooking surface and pulls these particles down and out of our kitchen. Otherwise, they escape and enter the air, causing air pollution. What is the working of a downdraft cooktop? The downdraft cooktop is available in a wide variety of versions. A downdraft range works in the same way as a normal range vent hood. But the working has a few exceptions. It pulls the grease and smoke through an exhaust fan that is present above the stove assembly. It is opposite to hood working that pulls the dirt particles from above. If we talk about the exact working of an electric downdraft cooktop, it consists of two main exhaust systems.  Active downdraft exhaust system  Central downdraft exhaust system Now, we will discuss each exhaust system separately. Active downdraft exhaust system: Some of the downdraft exhaust systems are active. It would help if you pressed a button when you are going to use the vent. It causes the vent to lift from the backside of your stove between 8 to 10 inches. As soon as the vents complete the movement, it turns on automatically. The smoke, oil grease, fumes, and steams pull out of the vent through the series of ducts that go outside. These ducts also run down below your white downdraft electric cooktop. Note: You require to follow Government rules and regulations for safety so that all dirt particles that exhaust go outside completely. Central downdraft exhaust system: There is another version of a downdraft cooktop that is set up with the central venting system. This venting system runs down the center of your electric cooktop between the left and right burners vertically. Such types of vents do not move. Instead, the exhaust fan is below the cooktop surface that leads the exhaust out of your kitchen. As the name \"electric downdraft cooktop\" show that there is some electrical

application present n it. So, you can turn on this version of a downdraft vent with the help of an efficient switch. After discussing the exhaust system, it is time to discuss the ventilation concept of a downdraft cooktop. The ventilation concept of a downdraft cooktop: The concept behind both exhaust systems is the circulatory expulsion of pollutants that occur while cooking. As the heat rises, the exhaust fan pulls it into the downward ventilation system that sucks the grease and gas down in the vent ducting. Final Thoughts: When you intend to buy and use a new item, you must know its benefits and work. Similarly, the electric downdraft cooktop has some benefits and specific working. We have given you some important guidelines about the working of a downdraft cooktop. It will help you to know whether to choose a range hood or an electric downdraft cooktop.
