  • 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
    • 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

  • QP330SS is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 104.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Attractive product, great features, BUT While shopping, this range hood was the best one I had seen after going to several stores. The features were great, it was sleek it really called my name. After a difficult (but successful) installation, I was very pleased with everything about it, until I wasn't. The fan refused to turn on. Customer service was helpful in finding a qualified repairman, but now I sit waiting for parts (and significant ones, the motor and blower). And in my experience items are rarely as "good as new" after new parts have to be installed. Also, the owners' manual is VERY difficult to understand. My hopes for the longevity of this range hood are greatly diminished after this extremely unwelcome and and frustrating beginning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Range Hood!! I am really satisfied with the QP330SS Evolution Series range hood. The lighting is great for cooking, (not to mention the night light feature). What!! The fan is so quiet on the lowest setting and at the BOOST setting (moving 450 cfm), was much quieter than my previous range hood. I rated the ease of installation as fair due to my lack of experience on changing out range hoods, but if I had to change another one out tomorrow I would be very confident doing so now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the research This unit keeps odors in the kitchen from spreading throughout our ranch house. Top setting very powerful and while a tad noisy, not deafening. Low setting is almost not heard at all. The lights are variable and nicely go from subtle to intense.....useful feature. Range hood is easy to clean. Caveat: The filter screen grids have plastic teeth to secure them to the underside of the unit. One has already broken off although the 'screen' still remains in place. Controls are easy with the exception of the setting the clock which has confounded my husband. This is not necessary even when there is a power outage.I wanted to note that even when the electricity is out, the clock continues to keep time... it has its own battery????

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Out of balance fan...vibrates off the cabinet on high! Happy with "looks" but my initial impression has been tarnished by receiving a unit with a warped blower fan, so I cannot operate on high speed. As stated in other reviews, fan is located to one side of the unit--clearing steam from pots on the right side of my 36 inch range is not possible without high speed. This causes us to "accommodate" the hood's inefficiencies and defects with most cooking. Yeah, I know...my fault for not returning or calling on the warranty. Maybe after my wife is retired and someone does not a have to take off work to resolve a problem that should not have gotten past quality control!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and Smooth It so well designed, sleek and smooth edges. Unlike some fans this blends right in and is almost undetectable. The suction is so great I can fry with ease knowing the odors are set outside. I recommend this fan to anyone wishing to have great clen effects. It is opperated with ease, do not need any detailed instructions. Wonderful fan....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power for removing not only smoke, but also odors This was easy to i9nstall, has great venting power to get any fumes, smoke and odors out of kitchen and house. The lights are very bright and light up the stove top and adjacent counter top, and has magic touch dimming and or brightening capability. Vent as great control for amount of fan speed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent exhaust. Lights very good, low switch not easy to operate. Overall value is VERY good. The low level ON switch does not always turn the light on. Attractive design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product! Fan runs very quietly and efficiently. Lights are great! I chose the Broan because it was to replace a very old model which was the same size. The old model still ran very efficiently, but I was not able to get it clean and it was loud. I believed that the replacement would be as good. So far it is proving to be true. I like the sleek, clean look, and the lighting is great. The fan runs very quietly. The low position is so quiet that it is hard to know if it is on, I rely on the fan button light to see if the fan is on. This was a very good choice! Thanks!!

    Can the halogen lights be replaced with LED lights?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    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.

    How do you turn off the lights? They automatically turn on at night.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The unit comes with the ambient light sensor set to level 1 ON. This is the default. If you follow the directions on page 3 of your manual Clock settings > Display > Sleep Mode > Ambient Light Sensor then you will be able to change the Light Sensor to (AoFF). We had the same issue when the unit was first installed and it took us maybe a day to master the settings. Too bad that the installer did not run through the settings with us before he left.

    How do you set the clock? How do you operate the lights?

    The lights go on automatically when it gets dark in the kitchen. How do you prevent that?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This confused us at first also. Read instruction manual thoroughly and it explains how to dis-able this feature easily. Although if you lose electric it will automatically default to this setting. If you lost your manual go to Broan website to read or download another one.

    Is it normal to go through 8 bulbs in less than two years?

    I have owned my hood for less than two years and my 8th bulb just blew. I don't think I use them excessively but it seems like a lot of bulbs. It also seems to be the front two more than the back two.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This is not normal. How close, in inches, is your stove top to the hood? There is a minimum distance it must be per install instructions. Are you using the recommended bulb for this hood? Alot of times bulbs will fail due to excessive heat if incorrect halogen bulbs are used. Knock wood, but we have not experienced this problem with ours and my wife and I cook and entertain a lot...never had a bulb failure. Our hood is 23 1/2" above our stove top. We use an induction stove. Hope this helps
