    • Clean, sleek appearance brings a contemporary style to your kitchen
    • Flush-mounted rocker controls offer two speeds so you'll have the right one to clear the smoke from whatever is cooking
    • 290 CFM provides the power you need and 0.8 sones at normal speed means QDE is over 50% quieter than the average range hood, so you'll be able to enjoy those family conversations
    • Dual fluorescent lights provide ample lighting for cooktop visibility (lamps included) and notable energy savings
    • Large, full filter area and blower wheel are dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Product is quiet, efficient and has a low profile. Installed one year ago (*June 2014). Still functioning efficiently. Very quiet at low speed. Fine for light smoke. Loud but bearable at high speed. Sucks in heavy smoke efficiently. Grease filters and blower wheel are easy to clean. Two lamps light the stove top evenly and well. Wish it had a third, medium, blower speed. I appreciate the low profile. I have been very happy with this range hood. July 18, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy and handsome replacement hood We used this to replace a 40 year old range hood, and it fit beautifully and instantly upgraded this corner of our kitchen. It works very well. The only knock is that there is no 'low' setting for the light. There is a rocker switch, but both settings turn the light on 'high' July 18, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks and works really great, but only one setting for light We were looking for a replacement hood with a clean design, energy efficiency, low maintenance, and no unneeded bells and whistles. This has fit the bill very well. Our electrician had no problem with installation, and it has operated great from the start. The low and high fan speeds are all we've needed. But we wish there were also a low and high light setting. There are two CFLs with the Energy Star model. The rocker switch turns both CFLs on in both switch positions. So you get only the high setting. September 7, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Off the Bench During the course of our kitchen remodel, we failed an inspection because the ducted Broan under cabinet range hood we originally selected was TOO powerful (550 CMF). We had to quickly find a hood of under 300 CMF that met all the criteria for a gas range (distance from burners), stainless steel, and our personal aesthetics. This Broan was the only model of all the brands that met all the criteria. It has been a very competent replacement and is very quiet at low speed. It has sufficient draw to take away steam from a rolling boil and sautee pan fumes. The twin lights with CFBs are adequate but these bulbs do not allow a "hi" and "lo" setting so you have one brightness regardless of how you engage the rocker switch. March 28, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Broan QDE30 Range Hood Excellent product at a very competitive price and the shipping cost is very reasonable, even to Hawaii. September 30, 2010
