    Rated 5 out of 5 by Much more powerfull and not any louder the the Broan it replaced. Bought this when we replaced our appliances and needed something that would recirculate since I couldn't install ducting. It's much more powerful than the Broan that came with the house. Easy to install and arrived quickly in good condition. It does show fingerprints much easier than our appliances...just need to teach the kids there's no reason to touch it. August 21, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Totally Pleased We shopped at a big box store. The look there led us to Broan products online not available in the store. We read multiple pro and con reviews. We narrowed our search based on great lighting and adequate CFM and low sones. Who really needs a clock, delayed start, nightlight, mega CFM, etc. etc? The Broan QP230 caught our eye. The pro reviews were encouraging. The con reviews seemed trivial or even uninformed. We were delighted with the shipping time and tracking features. We are totally pleased with the product... it has a great look, superb lighting, plenty of exhausting power, and low noise. It is super easy to clean. There are no negatives or regrets here. A happy wife is a good wife! The installation was relatively easy for an experienced DIY husband. In the end we paid less online for a great Broan product than we would have paid for a lower quality Broan product at the big box store. This purchase was a win win! August 3, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by great looking! Received it in time for Christmas Day! Quick shipping! Piece looks awesome! Paired it with a stainless steel sheet backsplash. January 23, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very powerful suction I bought this range hood just over a month ago and am very please with it. I needed a hood with a higher CFM than what I had and this Broan hood exceeded my expectations. April 1, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Great product. Arrived on time, packaged well. I particularly liked the abundance of light. My kitchen is in an enclosed room without any outside light. The exhaust fan works great. The vent was easily mounted. I would highly recommend. December 10, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very happy with this purchase Best features are the different levels of lighting and fan speeds. The curve at the front of the hood makes it much more attractive that the old standard hood it replaced. Installation was slightly challenging but not overly so. I would definitely recommend this product. December 3, 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than expected! Was concerned, after reading reviews, that the fan would be very loud. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find it was very quiet, on the low setting. It does a good job removing steam and vapors, even on the low setting. We rarely have to use the higher settings! Great range hood!! We love it!! November 5, 2013
    Rated 4 out of 5 by how much heat The fan dosen't turn on automatically with normal use . Your heat sensor must be set for burn down because I can't get it to turn on.The literature says heat sensor but with a dozen eggs boiling at 212 degrees and it wont turn on automatically. Feel you misrepresented this product . August 27, 2013

    Thank you for your question on the model QP230BC range hood. The QP230BC range hood uses light bulbs with a GU10 base. You will need to push in on the bulbs and twist counterclockwise approximately ½ - ¾ of an inch. The bulb should then drop out. The aluminum mesh grease filters can be washed in a sink of dishwashing liquid and water or in the dishwasher. If you have a charcoal filter (used in non-ducted installations) it cannot be cleaned and would need to be replaced periodically.
