Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Great replacement for my old one. However, there doesn't not seem to be a difference in the fan speeds regardless of which of the three settings is selected.

Love the cooktop, but....

Submitted by fisrman - 1/6/2017

I love the gas cooktop having converted from an electric cooktop. The quality and ease of cooking with gas and the beauty of the cooktop make being the kitchen a pleasure. We are experiencing one major problem that does not relate to the cooktop but to the downdraft. We have found that the vent cap/damper recommended for the Jenn Air is of poor quality and does not work well in the cold environs of a great lakes state. Consequently, when it is cold which it is now the cooktop and surrounding kitchen area are too cold-air coming in the downdraft from an inadequate vent cap/damper. You need to review the downdraft portion of the Jenn Air cooktop and come up with a solution. As of now, the downdraft of the cooktop is inoperable due to the insulation I have had to place in the vent cap to stop the very cold air from coming outside into my kitchen. I am investigating the problem myself but have not found a definite solution yet.

Submitted by Angela - 12/5/2016

I was so used to my old cooktop not getting as hot that I found myself burning food on this one. Once I realized how quickly this cooktop heats up and cooks, I was on my way and cooking like a champ. It has amazed my husband and kids how quickly this cooktop heats up and boils water. Love, love, love this product.

Hose Cook

Submitted by The Cook in the House - 11/25/2016

Nice looking cook top but it's difficult to use. Hard to clean the stainless steel version. I rarely use the fan due to how it pulls flame away from burners on right side.

Sleek and uncomplicated, easy to clean. The burners are a bit too close to one another so you cannot cook with multiple large pans at once.

My second Jenn-Air

Submitted by Fact Checker - 10/17/2016

This is my second Jenn_Air gas cook top. The first was an Expression model and served me for 18 years. The downdraft systems on both units allowed mounting on a kitchen island without need of a overhead vent system. I love this new 5 burner unit which fit with minor modifications to my space. The new grates are much nicer and heavier than the old grates and the sealed burners are a plus. The only thing I miss is the light indication that a burner is on like the old Expression displayed. Some on the burners can run so low that you may not notice it is on if not paying attention. Minor issue but food for thought.

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by jana - 10/15/2016

love the look and performance of the cooktop. Everything I expected except its my first stainless steel appliance and it is high maintenance for cleaning! It's very easy to clean in the sense that the grates remove easily, but every little drop of water, oil, fingerprint shows up.

Wonderful replacement for aged Whirlpool 36" Downdraft cookt

Submitted by Carol the Kitchen Captain - 9/13/2016

We had a 36" Whirlpool downdraft cooktop for 22 years. Used it every day and loved it. But the time came to update all of our Whirlpool appliances so how could we choose anything else but Jenn-Air. It is the exact same size as the Whirlpool and was installed in 20 minutes! But now we have it we regret not getting it sooner. It is a joy!

Best downdraft cooktop

Submitted by Love to cook - 9/12/2016

I love cooking, but usually only have time during the weekends. It's great to be able to cook multiple dishes at the same time because of the number of burners and the surface area. Water boils quickly, and steaks sear easily. The vent can be noisy, and I'm not sure that I see much difference between the speeds. But the burners are great.

Needs some improvement

Submitted by Alice O - 8/6/2016

I purchased this cook top two years ago and it scratched very easily and looked horrible so we replaced it. The control panel information and settings also disappeared after only a few cleanings because the black lettering just wiped away. We replaced it because the sales associate told us that Jenn Air put a new coating on the surface so we'll see what happens. I'm sure the control information will disappear again because it doesn't look like the process has been improved.

No, I do not recommend this product

Beautiful cooktop

Submitted by Jo - 8/5/2016

It is a beautiful cooktop, easy to clean, great function. The downdraft is a bit noisy and the filter looks like a design flaw, but certainly easy to pull out and pop in the dishwasher. My cleaning person nudged the burner on when cleaning the cooktop, and since it didn't ignite it went unnoticed until I got home with the kitchen full of gas. So beware.

Yes, I recommend this product

Easy to use. Easy to clean

Submitted by Sugar Grove, Illinois - 7/22/2016

Things to know about this product: Powerful large burner. Simmer burner works great for rice. Ducted, downdraft, cooktops are not easy to install and require cutting accurately located openings in walls, floors and cabinets. The product information available online is accurate and helpful. The fan noise seems about the same on all three fan settings. Using smooth, spiral duct transitions helps with noise and air flow. The stainless steel surface cleans up easily and doesn't show scratches.

Yes, I recommend this product

Cook Top downdraft

Submitted by Alabama - 4/19/2016

Wanted a very powerful down draft to replace the GE pop-up that we had. We were told that Jenn-Air was extremely good so we purchased it. While everything other than the downdraft works extremely well the downdraft is very questionable. The low setting is fine, medium setting has very little change and no change to the next setting which is high. Had a tech in and he said that was the way it was. Very unsatisfactory answer, intend to contact Jenn-Air shortly. Couldn't recommend unless the settings are improved.

Don't do it!

Submitted by Dacie - 3/5/2016

We remodeled our home. After the dust settled from moving in and all, I began to clean the cooktop. It was at this time I noticed areas on the black porcelain that were defective in appearance. They would not come clean nor polish away. Also, the burner caps were spotted, and stained. From minimal use. They would not come clean. I contacted Jenn air and was told that since it had been past 30 days they would not address my concerns. Instead they sent me a "special" cleaner that did not help. It was sent to pacify me. The customer service was not satisfactory.

Submitted by Dana - 2/24/2016

My stove top was installed in December and we feel there is a warranty issue which my brother was handling for me but we never got a response. There is a chip in the finish and a scratch that I noticed a couple of days after install and we had not used any item that could cause this, it is very small chip and a small scrath which I assume can be hard to see. We have been waiting on the warranty contact and then I was going to write a review. We love the cook top and it looks great in our kitchen bit I am a tad anul when I spend this kind of money and flaws already visible in a couple of days of install.

a cooks delight

Submitted by PegB - 2/23/2016

This cooktop does everything I need it to do. It is truly a cooks delight. However, the downdraft system does not work a well as the conventional over the stove vent. When that is not an option it is better than nothing. This thing cooks.
