by Dghills Hood blows dirty air back into kitchen
This hood draws air well, but leaks smoke and grease laden air of the front left seam, blowing it back into the kitchen. An experienced installer could not remedy this issue. The fan is very, very LOUD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Trosie It is a high quality product
Well built and strong air volume when needed. Lights are nice and bright. I wish it came with a built in cleaner though!

looks great, easy installation, the only problem I see so far is that unfortunately the fan is way to loud. We had done some research on the appliance, and most said the fan was pretty quit, well it is way to loud.
I WISH I WOULD HAVE PUT A REMOTE FAN IN MY ATTACK, AND HAVE IT DUCT TO THE UNIT

by sldg Wonderful, professional-looking hood!
I wanted a professional looking hood but needed a recirculating option as I didn't have a way to vent the hood outside. Broan offered that option. The hood is awesome! It's effective at removing smoke and odor, isn't terribly loud and looks great. Very pleased with my purchase. My contractor installed the hood so I'm uncertain as to the ease of installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Phyllis24 This is a great product with great features.
This product work great with the heat and odors being removed. There is only one thing wrong and that is that it resonates. With a little extra padding this stops the resonating. The fan speed is variable which works great if you only need it on low. There are two light features and with both on they put out a lot of light. The filters are easy to remove for cleaning and they go back in just as easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheDude18 Installation was a breeze.
After moving the electrical to the proper location on the wall, I added wood to the underside of the cabinet it was to be mounted under. Had my son and his friend hold the hood in place while I secured the hood with eight screws to the cabinet above. Most of my time spent was on the prep work and then installing the duct work after.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tommy533 Good hood, horrible to maintain
Good luck changing be halogen lights. Outside of eventually just breaking the light, they are impossible to get out!!! If anyone has a trick please let me know. I tried needlenose pliers with a sticky adhesive and also tried what the catalogue recommended by using rubber kitchen gloves... Nothing worked! Based on that alone I would not buy this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LadyMerlyn Great, but with some drawbacks
The hood looks sleek, except the filter grates show much more than the catalog photo. I'm not pleased with this "industrial" look, but will live with it because I like the performance. It does the job I bought it to do. I can't really speak to ease of installation, because I wasn't at home when the contractor installed it. I like the way the filters remove for cleaning in the dishwasher. I like the variable speed control and the different light levels, but I wish the control knobs for them were easier to access, ie by sight rather than feeling around for them. I had a real problem inserting the light bulbs -- and in fact, had to call the contractor back to put them in, and he had trouble doing so. There was no book with it, so was not aware that there was a tool until I read other comments. My sales rep provided me with a book later.
