Could a down-draft range be installed in the island? I know not everyone is happy with the efficiency of these units, but it would open up the view.

The only problem with those with a gas stove is they suck the flame toward the vent meaning if you have a big pot or pan on the burner the flame is only under part of it giving you uneven cooking.

My parents have a gas range with a down draft vent. Works fine, never had a problem with uneven cooking. They just did a kitchen reno and put a brand new one in too.


I think maybe this one: https://www.kitchena...cgd506gss.html

Some of the units have the range on the island instead of not on the island



If this picture was taken from the living area with a person cooking at the stove or washing vegetables or dishes at the sink you would not see the persons face behind the fan if they were cooking and the person would be facing the wall if they were at the sink which makes for awkward communication. (keep in mind folks this is a condo not a house) The second reason I felt this design was a flaw is there is little prep space next to sink with no cupboards up above so now you star at a cabinet door.

Anyone have an estimate on when construction might start on this one?
