Rated 4 out of 5 by golfer VERY ATTRACTIVE
Grease filter fits loosely and makes loud noise getting seated when fan starts.
Have to cycle lights through all levels to turn on/off. Should have controls like fan.
Installer had difficulty getting exhaust pipe to clear control module.
Very attractive and appears to work effectively based on limited use so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Criscocrispy Beatiful hood that we modified for lower ceiling and soffit installation.
We installed this hood as part of a kitchen remodel last summer, and I am very happy with how it looks and works. We had some difficulties finding a hood that would work for us because we have standard 8' ceilings and we wanted the island hood hung a bit high due to the fact that we have tall men in our family and we didn't want them bumping into a hood or having it get in their way while cooking. After much research we chose this hood because with modification we were able to hang it 36" (the max recommended height) above our cooktop.
-It looks lovely. It is sleek and modern, without looking too modern in my transitional style home. The curve blends nicely with my GE Profile appliances.
-The glass canopy makes it look less heavy and doesn't obstruct the view over my island as much as a solid canopy may.
-It draws well enough, although I am sure it would be even better if hung lower. It is STILL better than our old island downdraft.
-The three level lighting looks great.
-The filter is easy to clean.
-It is loud. We can't really carry on a conversation with it on the highest setting.
-The glass does require a lot of cleaning, since any dust on top or grease on the bottom shows right away.
The modifications ended up being a challenge, but with a capable contractor and electrician we are happy with the end result. We chose this model because the "guts" (blower, etc.) did not extend up the chimney so high that they prevented us from shortening the chimney. The first step was easy. The support frame was easily shortened with a hack saw and the stainless exterior sleeve was trimmed to our desired length. Installation was then complicated by the fact that when the ceiling was opened, one of the rafters was dead center above our cooktop, requiring us to build a small soffit in order to enclose the duct work as it bypassed the rafter. In the end, our electrician mounted the motor to the rafter. The soffit (finished with nice cherry trim to match our cabinets) covering the ductwork has a removable access panel in case we ever need to service the motor. It all looks and works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindaE This range hood is exactly what I wanted!
This hood was installed in a new home. Special framing had to be done to accommodate the exhaust, but the builder did this. I am impressed with the 4 LED lights with 3 brightness settings. Lots of light. The fan also is multi speed and surprisingly quiet for the open kitchen/family room in which it is installed. I haven't tried cooking curry yet. That will be the real test.
This hood is really classy in my off white kitchen with stainless appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan77 Solid performance, High value
I installed this unit about 3 years ago over a 5-burner electric range. I am taller, so I installed it at the maximum recommended distance from the range surface to avoid bumping my head. It works well at this height but I would recommend keeping it in the low to mid range as it is less effective in pulling from the front burners due to the distance. It still works well enough overall but I need to use the higher settings often as a result. Install was easy with good instructions. The unit performs well, is easy to maintain, runs quietly and the timer feature as well as the lighting settings are big plusses. It also looks great.
I would recommend this unit to anyone considering a new venting solution.

This exhaust hood was chosen because of its contemporary styling and the Broan/Nutone name. It is a huge complement to our remodeling project. Very Happy!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by anner Filters steam, smoke, and cooking odor very well, and filters are easy to remove and clean.
This hood looks fantastic and is easy to wipe clean even though it is stainless. We had to have an outlet installed because our old hood was hard-wired, but rest of installation was easy enough for us to do.
