Venting for a Kitchen Aid Induction Cooktop

Venting for a Kitchen Aid Induction Cooktop

Link to the Fantech In-Line Fan we used for this project.
In this modern remodel of a 1940’s house the Architect Nick Deaver specified a Kitchen Aid Induction Cooktop. These are a great cooking product for our Cooling dominant Austin TX climate as they don’t emit a ton of extra heat into the house like a gas cooktop would. In this video I’m discussing the hidden venting system we are using to exhaust the cooking odors & moisture. -Matt Risinger Risinger Homes Austin, TX

    I want to upgrade my natural gas burners but these induction cooktops scare me. I have all cast iron cookware and it might break the glass top. I don't know if I would want to change cookware since I really love the heavy stuff. Any advice?

    Hey Matt, I know this video is old but I'm encountering a similar issue replacing an OLD Jenn-Air downdraft electric cooktop in my kitchen. I want to go the induction route but induction with built in downdraft similar to what I have now is crazy $$$$$. Is there a more affordable solution you would recommend?

    That white channel with the light rail where the vent goes will be a pain to clean, think that the oil fumes go through this!
    I love you contents though thank you

    This one I cannot agree with. I won’t be able to do heavy duty cooking or frying.

    You could put a floor duct on the bench top and use ducting to make a down draft extracter fan.

    What if the power goes out, nothing, that is why I love Gas and dual fuel…. If power goes out you can still cook and eat hot food..

    Although, I got the jest of your video, the sound quality really hurt it. Comments helped me get the idea at least. Really do appreciate your videos though.

    BS !!
    Yes, you have to vent the gas fumes (carbon dioxide and water vapor from the propane) but the requirements to vent an induction range is no different than a coil top or a radiant. You still are gong to have fumes from searing/frying (bacon etc). ANd it's a good idea to vent that outside.
    Plus, the amateur nature of this vid shows up in the poor attention to sound.
    (Disclaimer: I own an induction slide in. I love it as it's powerful, and since the top doesn't get anywhere near as hot, you don't have as much problem cleaning off baked in / burned in foods.
    Downside of an induction stove: you may have to have an electrician put in a larger wire (lower gauge number) becase the induction stoves are very powerful. I had to have this done as the manufacturer recommended this when I had my stove installed.

    With this setup, aren't you worried about creating an air leak in the homes envelope? Even with a damper? I love your videos. Thanks so much for taking the time!

    So does the fan vent into the attic? If so, aren't you concerned about the moisture that can breed mold???? Or does it vent through the attic to the outside??? I also thought that you had to add more CFM for every inch that you move away from the source?

    Matt, We too like the clean look. I was looking at the 2014 (Oregon) ICC building code and it reads " Domestic cooking appliances shall be equipped with a ducted range hood or downdraft exhaust system. Is this new or how did you get around that?

    What kind of vent grill did you use. Did the grill have a metallic filter?

    Gosh, I don't know about the design of that trough with lights in it. Seems you're going to pull all that greasy smoke into that trough and the grease is going to coat the lights and the inside of the trough. That's a lot of cleaning. They make flush ceiling fans now (Futuro Futuro Skylight) which comes with removable grates that you can just pop in the dishwasher.

    Thanks so much for giving us an induction-island solution!  We're placing an inline in a trough/niche where the soffit was.  I'm ordering the fan & parts now, just wondering if you used the accompanying Fantech steel silencer in your jobs, too?

    Matt thanks for this!  I have been starring at our old electric cooktop with a downdraft that we were ripped off when buying in the first place years ago.  I currently have a downdraft but can't find anyone that carries an induction cooktop with a downdraft. Your post provided hope instead of waiting for someone to make one.  Our kitchen is older from the 80's when a drywall soffit was extended down from the ceiling in a box above the cabinets.  I have solid cherry cabinets and after consulting some cabinet makers they suggest I keep them unless i want to spend a bunch with compete remodel.  Could a fan such as this be placed in in the soffit? Currently, only a couple of recess lights sit above the stove.

    Anybody know how to get the pop up vent to operate when the filter is removed?  I removed the filter to clean and it retracted before I could grab the other one>  now it will not operate/rise due to the fact that the filter has been removed.  HELP

    Hi Matt! I am in a predicament now as I want to install induction, but dont want a pop-up fan or a hood, and there is no nice induction cooktops with downdraft. Thing is though; the kithen will be in a 1000sq.ft room together with the livingroom, and the ceiling height is 12'. Would something like this still work, you think? Thank you so much!
