    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product!! RKE56 Cons: 1) Very hard to install the non-duct plenum (top part where the air is expelled and the metal case is flushed against the ceiling). It is 7-8'm deep. It is flushed against the ceiling and has 2-3'' clearing to secure two screws against the wall. Very hard to reach with regular screw driver. Needed to purchase a foot long screw driver. Phillips head. 2) I had to cut 6'' off the lower external decorative flute. Then sand it because the edges became extremely sharp and could cause cuts. However once the lower edge of the flute was placed inside de gap around the glass canopy all was hidden and perfectly aligned. Pros 1) beautiful. Once in place every effort is worth it ten folds. 2) light is soothing. Like spotlight. 3) relatively quiet. 4) efficient. Removes the food odors at least 85%. 5) increases the value of the kitchen and home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broan Ducted Kit It wasn't easy to install, but after some time with our contractor we got it all working. It's a nice recirculating fan & we are very happy. I would recommend the product, & for those that can have it ducted to the outside, which living in a condo will not allow, it would work even better. Thank you.

    Is this self-contained or does it have to vent into a soffit/cabinet/closet?

    Can I just get the charcoal filter without having to buy the RKE56 kit?

    I'm venting to the outside, but want the charcoal filter to absorb the odors when cooking?
