    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.

    Sleek Profile! Fit right where I needed it to!

    Submitted by Evie88 - 8/30/2020

    I had an old Thermador pop up, downdraft vent and needed to upgrade to something of the same style, and I'm so glad GE had one that fit perfectly and looks beautiful. The only reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating is because it's a bit loud, and the suction is good... just not super-powerful. If I really want it to capture everything, I use the back burners.

    Fits well but makes an awful noise

    Submitted by AndyRo - 8/17/2020

    Works well enough, but the noise it makes when turned on evolved from a very faint moan early on to an unacceptable screeching/whining sound at present. Happily, a GE tech came out today, told us it was a motor problem, and will be doing the repair in 2 weeks. We're looking forward to a quieter experience in the future!

    Contemporary Look

    Submitted by Lara89 - 8/14/2020

    We replaced 20 year old appliances in a home we recently purchased. Because the stove top had a pop up downdraft, we decided to go with GE model. The look is beautiful and blends nicely with other appliances. But, as with most downdrafts they can only do so much. You can't compare overhead hoods with downdrafts they are fundamentally different. That being said, the fan isn't to loud on high, does pull as well as a downdraft can and is easy to clean.

    Submitted by DonnaMiller - 7/8/2020

    I could not ask for better at any price. My Thermador draft tower quit after 30 years! Yes it was a hero but the price of a new one was daunting. I loved the price of the GE downdraft and ordered it. It looks great, has a digital dial and works so well. I could not be more pleased.

    GE telescoping exhaust fan

    Submitted by TheFamilyCook - 6/24/2020

    The fan is very effective and power adjusts gradually, which is nice. The on/off button needs to be pushed a bit hard.

    Submitted by Phiy - 3/11/2020

    I purchased the product to replace the original exhaust. This one is far superior to the previous one. The exhaust meter is just below the venting, thus creating a much better exhaust.

    Cheaply made

    Submitted by Unhappy ccustomer - 1/23/2020

    The vent hood is cheaply made, was backordered for almost 2 months then arrived with the vent grill cover not being able to be removed, replacement is on order. This unit replaces a 10 year old GE Monagram downdraft that was much better quality. All of GE products seem to be cheaply made nowadays and I will not buy GE in the future. They are after the Big Box market and have abandoned quality. The other issue is that it is next to impossible to get service from GE which is very important due to their low quality products

    Beautiful and tall enough to draft tall soup pots

    Submitted by Sande beach - 12/31/2019

    The down draft is a huge improvement to my kitchen which previously had none. We installed the unit ourselves which was a real challenge, but that was expected. Being over 8" high it takes the steam and smoke out of the kitchen, even my large soup pot.

    Bad design on 'remote'

    Submitted by melmeske - 11/25/2019

    It seems to work well, but the 'remote' is very poorly designed. They want you to drill another hole in your countertop and put it there. I didn't like that idea and finally placed it on the cabinet below, but it's not optimum. Would have been better to have a switch on the cooktop that could be wired to it

    Defective, non-functioning product out of the box

    Submitted by MikeR2 - 7/29/2019

    The GE model UVB36SKSS was installed to code by a licensed master electrician. The downdraft did not work immediately after installation (the downdraft goes up and down but the fan isn't working -- which kind of defeats the purpose of a downdraft). This unit was installed during the first part of July. It will remain broken until the middle of August, or more than a month after installation, if my fiancee are very lucky and there are no more issues. At this point, were there any way to return the cooktop and downdraft and get our money back for the purchase and installation costs so we could purchase a different brand that actually worked, we would. We are completely unsatisfied with it. I would be more specific, but my previous review was discarded because I included specifics.
