HELP - gas cooktop recommendation
I am new and accidentally posted this to the "kosher" thread originally. Sorry.

I have read all the discussions I can find on here but hoping to get some QUICK advice. We're in the middle of remodeling a kitchen in a home we recently purchased. We will have an island with granite countertop and gas cooktop (non-negotiable for my wife).

Because of walls, venting and other issues are options are:

gas cooktop with downdraft built in (my wife wants the Jenn Aire, but reading this board gives me pause).

gas cooktop with separate telescoping vent (leaning toward bosch top and broan vent)

gas cooktop with no venting on the island but putting a through the wall utility fan (think 1950s).

It needs to be 30".

In kind of a hurry as we're in the middle of the project (I could explain why I"m just asking now, but trust me there is a reason).

Like to stay under $2,000 but could go higher.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
