    BROAN® Evolution QP330 Series Range Hoods

    The EVOLUTION Series of QP Range Hoods has a contemporary style and sleek appearance that will complement any kitchen design.  Easy to clean, brilliant lighting and quiet operation result in the perfect marriage of functionality.

    • Ultra quiet at less than 0.3 sones at Normal speed and only 5.0 sones at High speed, allows you to clear out cooking smoke and unwanted smells without disturbing the peace in your kitchen
    • 100 CFM at Normal speed and 450 CFM at High speed provides the smoke and odor clearing power you need, when you need it. A 4-speed soft-touch control with green LED indicators includes a Boost mode which is helpful for high heat cooking styles
    • An integrated LED clock-timer lets you time certain dishes, delay-off allows the hood to operate an extra 10 minutes after cooking, and an ambient light sensor turns on when it  senses low room light levels to provide the master chef with convenience and confidence in the kitchen
    • Four 50W Halogen MR16/GU10 lamps  provide brilliant lighting over and around the cooktop with 4-levels of brightness, including theater-style transition (bulbs  included), so you can see how things are cooking and clearly read the cookbook
    • Full filter design has an antimicrobial coating to inhibit the formation of odor-producing bacteria. Aluminum micro-mesh filters are dishwasher-safe to give you the confidence your kitchen will always smell fresh
    • Enclosed non-stick bottom pan ensures quick clean-up to make your work fast and easy
    • Advanced Heat Sentry™ detects excessive heat and turns blower to high, prolonging product life and ensuring your confidence in range hood performance
    • Choice of 3-1/4" x 10” rectangular or 7" round ducting ensures reliable discharge without repositioning the blower. Optional non-ducted installation requires  CleanSense™ charcoal filters (BPPF sold separately), providing you the right choice of installation for your kitchen
    • Optional remote control (BCR1 sold separately) has a magnetic base which allows you to position it wherever it is most convenient. Enables operation of blower speed, lighting and delay-off features from across the room, so range hood operation is always at your fingertips
    • Compatible with optional Broan Make-up Air Dampers (MD6T or MD8T, sold separately) to fit 6" or 8" ducting and help to balance the air pressure when the range hood is in use, keeping your environment comfortable

  • Rated 4 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad, but could be better It's definitely an upgrade from my late 80s hood, but it's a little louder than I would like on the medium and high fan speeds. It does expel smoke and odors well though. You can barely hear it on the low fan speed and the lighting is awesome! I like the all-black look too! The buttons are not consistently responsive and the clock runs fast over a short period of time (a month into it and it's already 3 minutes fast). It lets you turn off the clock so it doesn't show in the display, which is nice, because I already have to many clocks in the kitchen! The fan timer (auto turn-off after 10 minutes) is a plus too, especially since you can't hear it on the low fan speed. June 16, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great We had a little difficulty with installation, but this was a replacement. Everything works find, like the lighting and the quietness March 15, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Reliable We mover to a new location so this is our 2nd Broan Hood. Can't change light bulb April 6, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Quality Kitchen Workhorse Our QP330SS is a good quality workhorse. The multi level exhaust is versatile and works well. Fan low speeds are very quiet. We use the lower speeds for normal cooking and simmering. For roasting, broiling, searing, frying, and baking foods that smoke or give off odors, the higher speeds work well. The boost feature is great for smokey events that demand serious effort.... no need to worry about setting off a smoke alarm. Multiple light brightness levels are useful. The lights are appropriately very bright for cooking and appropriately low or very low, at our option, at other times. The automatic nightlight function is a useful feature. The QP330SS is an easy to use, good quality, and highley functional product. The minimalistic styling is appealing and looks good in our traditional, open concept kitchen- dinning- family living space. The brushed stainless steel finish is acceptable but not quite as nice as we would prefer. The hood and filter screens are easy to clean. After more than three years of daily use, we are very pleased with our purchase. March 23, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Good product, Poor design. Due to the placement of the suction fan on one side of the unit, smoke and steam are picked up well on the left side of the unit but not as well on the right side. March 14, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish and Quite This unit was pretty straight forward to install. We love the clean styling and the fan is very quite for an range hood. Ample lighting, The night light feature is nice. One dismay - the clock does not keep accurate time. We are very happy though overall. March 13, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I installed this range hood expecting it to be just as loud or worse than the older Broan unit I had in before but to my surprise it is very quiet. My wife and I are also very pleased with the lighting on the QP330SS range hood. March 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This unit has it all We have totally enjoyed this unit ever since we installed it. The lighting has four stages, one is a night light that comes on automatically when the lights in that area are turned off. That is a very cool feature. The exhaust fan has three settings plus a turbo setting. This unit is the class of the field, if your looking for a solid unit with great lighting and all the exhaust you can stand this is your unit.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP330SS range hood. The range hood requires (4) 120 volt, 50 watt shielded halogen MR16 bulbs with GU10 base. Some manufacturers of bulbs will make the neck of their bulbs shorter than others. The QP3 does allow you to change the depth of the light socket, inside the hood to adapt to most bulbs. Please check the installation instructions for this adjustment. You can also contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    The automatic "heat sentry" in this particular hood, is there to prevent any overheating condition within the hood and considered a safety feature. It cannot be turned off or disabled.

    Answer: 
    According to the info below you cannot turn off the auto fan feature. It has a mind of its own.

    1) If the fan is ON it will cycle up and down to deal with the temp.

    2) If the fan is off, (CANADIAN VERSION DOES NOT HAVE
    THIS FUNCTION) the Heat Sentry system will automatically turn
    the fan on to its highest speed when the temperature is above
    normal. When the Heat Sentry system is on, the light above the
    high speed fan button will flash on and off. After the temperature
    has lowered to normal, the fan speed will be reduced until the
    temperature has stabilized, then the fan will turn off.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP330BL range hood. The QP330BL range hood requires either 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular or 7” round duct work. Using one of these sizes of duct, you can run the duct work 15 feet straight without loss of CFM. For every elbow installed in the duct run, you would need to subtract that distance by 7 feet. You cannot run any smaller duct work on this model.

    Hi,
    I heard that the air is suctioned from one side of the hood and not from both sides (left and right). Is that correct? If so what is the reason for that?
    Thank you.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP336SS range hood. The hood utilizes an offset blower design to achieve greater performance and lower sound levels. As a result, you may notice the cooking impurities are more attracted to one side or appear to be pulled-in faster than they appear on the opposite side. This is completely normal. The hood has been designed and tested to provide good capture of cooking impurities and odors under all normal cooking conditions regardless of the cooking location on the cooktop. Please note that cooking on the rear burners will always result in the best capture of cooking impurities, regardless of the hood design.
