NEW Broan® EVOLUTION™ Series Range Hoods- It's What Comes Next

Hartford, Wis., April 16, 2010 – The new Broan® EVOLUTION Series of under-cabinet range hoods offers consumers the ideal range hood for their kitchen no matter their budget. Based on extensive market research, the EVOLUTION Series is the next step following the Broan ALLURE® range hood, which has been a number one selling product line since its introduction in 1997.

"Research shows that consumers want style, quiet, ease of cleaning, lighting and performance in a range hood. Price is a contributing factor as well," says Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, Broan-NuTone®. "With the EVOLUTION Series, we wanted to exceed expectations with regards to how a range hood can change the way one cooks."

The Broan EVOLUTION Series offers consumers three models to choose from. This tiered approach provides the flexibility for various budgets without sacrificing key improvements. Each model features enhanced lighting output and an improved capture effectiveness credited to filters that are up to 40 percent larger along with a sloped bottom design that funnels smoke into the filters. Smooth surfaces, a fully-enclosed bottom and dishwasher-safe filters reduce upkeep, and with a 40 percent sound reduction, the EVOLUTION Series is clearly the next step in range hood development.

The EVOLUTION QP3 is the top of the line and features brilliant lighting and greater blower control including a Boost mode designed for the serious cook and is remarkably quiet, even at high power modes. A sealed, advanced electronic touch panel with clock and timer provides all the control features and an optional handheld remote means that control is always within reach.
