KitchenAid Architect Series Electric Cooktop Review

by The Review CrewOctober 24, 2010

Every home has one, ensuring they are one of the most popular rooms in the house. Even if it weren’t for their ubiquity, kitchens are guaranteed to be appreciated simply because that is where the food comes from. We all have to eat, so we might as well make it enjoyable. That goes for the making of food, too. Considering how much time is spent hovering over the cooktop, one that looks good and is comfortable to use are considerations that matter. As well as where to put the darn thing.

Breaking free from on top of the range allows cooktops to be placed anywhere in the kitchen. There are additional things to consider, however, such as fuel source and ventilation. If maneuvering a gas line to the center of the kitchen or installing an overhead hood isn’t a possibility, there is another option. The KitchenAid KECD807X Architect Series II 30-Inch Electric Cooktop features downdraft ventilation along with the convenient familiarity of electric operation.

Available in full flush black or with a sleek stainless steel trim, the cooktop offers good looks to go along with its convenience. The ceramic-glass surface houses four elements ranging from 1,200 watts to 3,000 watts, while a hot-surface indicator provides a certain degree of safety. For increased versatility, the left front and rear right elements are double-ringed, allowing for either large or small cookware to be used as the need arises. Like the cooktop itself, having the ability to cook where you want ensures that the kitchen will remain a good place to be.
