Some manufacturers offer other widths and a variety of configurations with griddles, grills and woks.
Cooktops are designed to set on the surface of a counter top that has a cutout for the cooktop’s body to recess into.

Ventilation is often the most misunderstood and forgotten part of the kitchen. A well designed kitchen includes a stylish hood or ventilator that is properly sized and installed to exhaust grease, moisture and odors. The exhaust fan motor can be inside the hood or liner, on the exterior wall or roof or in-line between the hood and the exhaust point depending on the manufacturer.
Wall Hoods hang on the wall above your range, cooktop or rangetop. Wall hoods are usually chimney style or pro canopy style. They usually are connected to a duct that runs to the outside wall or roof. When ducting to the outdoor is not an option some manufacturers offer re-circulating models that filter the exhaust through a filter and reintroduce the filtered exhaust into the kitchen.
Island Hoods suspend from the ceiling over a range, cooktop or rangetop. The ducting or re-circulation options are similar to the wall hoods.
Insert Hood Liners are the internal portion of a hood that is designed to be enclosed and concealed by a cabinet enclosure or other architectural feature. The ducting or re-circulation options are similar to the wall hoods.
Down Draft ventilation is designed to exhaust down below the countertop. This configuration is handy in many applications but tend not to be as efficient as overhead ventilation since heat rises. The ducting must take place below the countertop and exhaust outdoors. Limited manufacturers offer recirculation versions.
