  • 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
    • 150 CFM at Normal speed and 470 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 630 CFM Boost mode which is ideal 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 a 2-level ambient light sensor turns on when it  senses low room light -- all 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
    • 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" rectangular or 7" round ducting ensures reliable discharge without repositioning the blower. The Evolution 4 can be installed as ducted only
    • 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 4.2 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Preforms as advertised In today's world so many things never preform as advertised. Not this Broan vent hood . . . . . it is fantastic! Love the lighting, the low sound level and programming options. Especially like the auto off after done cooking that keeps venting for you after cooking but you don't have to get up later and turn off yourself. Don't hesitate purchasing if this hood has the features you are looking for. February 7, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding The exhaust is great, so quite, yet it moves a large volumn of air quickly. I love the night light feature, I can't say enough about this product, we just love it. February 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by exellent product since I installed it its been working fine I can not complaint only makes noise when detects heat and runs on high speed but then goes back to normal operation.- I'm happy with this product February 6, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Marginal Consideration I am sorry to say that I am disappointed with this unit. It has a built in heat sensor that throws the unit in high exhaust cycle at a prolonged length of time and quite annoying in sound to be honest. There is NO way of bypassing this feature and for that I am disappointed with this item. January 14, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great, easy to install, and very quiet This Broan model is a great buy for the 300 to 500 price range hood. Installation was straight forward and easy. Even at high setting, this hood is a lot quieter than some of the other brand I've experienced. The 4 speed setting is great so you can adjust the level of suction needed. The 2 draw back I would like to point out is the type of bulb and fan placement. The bulb used is halogen and so it gets really hot. I wish they would use an incandescent bulb instead of the halogen type. Second is the suction fan is located on the left side of the unit under the left filter. If they had it place in the center, the suction for both side would be more effective. I have to always use highest fan speed when having something cooking on the right side of the unit to get optimum removal of smoke. February 6, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall an excellent product Installation instructions are very poor. This makes for a difficult install, primarly with the mounting and electrical connections. Once installed it works great. September 13, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Much quieter and great features I like the halogen dual brightness setting. The system is much quieter and cleans the air quicker than my old range hood. It is sleek and slim compared to my old clunker. March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Lighting and Great Ventilation The Broan QP430SS does a great job of both venting cooking odors and lighting up the cooktop. We are using it to vent over an induction cooktop. A vent hood with Great (as opposed to adequate) lighting was just as much a priority for me as good, quiet ventilation. The Broan QP430SS has both. The Broan QP430SS does a great job of venting cooking odors, grease, and steam (we do a lot of pan frying and also I cook a lot of soups in the winter). The fan has 3 levels plus a boost. The 2 lower levels are very quiet. High is quieter than the over the range microwave it replaced. Boost is a bit noisy, but typically Boost is only used for short durations. The fan also has an auto-off feature. After pushing the timed-off button, the fan runs for 10 minutes then shuts down. A longer or shorter interval can be set after pushing the auto-off button; the pre-set time can also be changed if you always want a different interval The 4 halogen lights do a great job of illuminating the cooktop. In choosing a vent hood for our kitchen remodel (which was driven by wanting a vent hood that vented better than the over the range microwave-vent combination we had) great lighting was more important to me than the auto-off. Luckily for us the Broan QP430SS has both great lighting and timed-off. There are 3 levels of light plus a night-light. Standard setting is for the nightlight to come on automatically, but we've turned that feature off. (Nightlight was coming on when we felt there was still enough light not to need it -- it's nice that many of the pre-sets can be changed to suit your needs.) There is also a minute timer. The pre-set is for 10 minutes. You use the + and - buttons to change the interval. The pre-set can also be changed if you want a different interval. The 2 metal mesh filters can go in the dishwasher. This unit does not keep time of fan runtime nor does it alert you when it's time to clean the filters -- about the most negative thing I can say about the Broan QP430SS. I didn't rate the Ease of installation because kitchen contractor installed the unit. I don't recall that they had any particular issues. This unit can vent to either rectangular or circular ducting. The stainless steel is not "fingerprint proof" but it's not difficult to clean. We also bought the matching stainless steel backsplash piece to have a nice-looking, easy-to-clean, grout-free backsplash behind the cooktop. Actual size was a fraction of an inch larger than the specs said, which caused the contractor a bit of a hassle; they had to get the stainless steel panel cut down. March 10, 2014

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP430SS range hood. Using the 3-1/4” x 14” rectangular duct work the QP430SS will handle up to 19 feet of straight duct work. You would need to subtract seven feet for every elbow installed. Using seven inch round duct work you can run 10 feet straight. Once again subtracting seven feet for every elbow installed. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP430SS range hood. The motor inside the QP430SS will only turn in one direction and cannot blow down towards the cook top. If the air is blowing down towards the cook top there is either an installation problem or blockage in the duct work. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP436SS range hood. To remove the light bulbs you would push the bulbs in and turn counterclockwise approximately ½ inch. The bulb should then drop out of the socket. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
