    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 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 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 4 out of 5 by i like this unit but this is a good unit but the auto fan heat sensor is a bad thing , i have a eat in kitchen and with no control over the fan with high temps it gets loud and can,t hear some others in the room .i should be able to turn off and on when i want to operate the fan .other that i like it March 11, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by This product has too many unnessecary features. We don't need another clock nor do we need a night light. Those are silly additions. The unit did malfunction in less than a year in the full on exhaust mode because a sensor malfunctioned. I'd rather have a better sensor than a clock etc. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Looks good, has a quiet fan that vents odors out well (we vented it outdoors). It also has great lighting and works perfectly. Love the automated night light. Cleaning is easy. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This has worked well for us My only complaint is that the clock does NOT keep good time. March 10, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Difficult to program Difficult to install, took installers two trips because they couldn't figure it out the first time. Difficult to program even using the manual. Would not purchase again. March 10, 2014

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP330SS range hood. The only bulbs that we can recommend are the bulbs listed in the installation instructions. The QP330SS range hood requires (4) 120 volt, 50 watt maximum, MR16, shielded halogen bulbs with a GU10 base.

    Answer: 
    I tried LED bulbs. Did not work.
    Low setting: they would not turn on.
    Med setting: They would flicker
    High setting: They would turn on....reluctantly.

    Guessing it has to do with the voltage levels across the bulbs. LEDs need a certain level to just turn on, whereas Halogens can handle a super low voltage.

    But, yes.. I really do not like the heat (and the yellow light) the halogens generate. They tend to yellow the white finish eventually.

    I am still looking into it, but it does not look hopefully about switching over to LED.

     on QP330SS
    Hi There,
    I have a 4" duct that is already installed and I am looking to buy this hood. Will this be a good fit for the 4" duct?. The range is about 4 ft from the wall and I want to use the existing vent.

    Thanks

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP330SS range hood. The QP330SS range hood is designed to be vented horizontally with 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular duct work or vertically ducted with 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular or 7” round duct work. This unit should not be installed with 4” duct work.
