    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 4 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Good product, Poor design. Due to the placement of the suction fan on one side of the unit, smoke and steam are picked up well on the left side of the unit but not as well on the right side. March 14, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect except we have not figured out the relationship between the clock ann the light control. We are very happy with the unit. It does everything perfectly. It is quite to operate, looks good, and it does a great job exhausting the air. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Sleek appearance. Doesn't jump out like a typical range hood. The unit comes with 4 halogen lamps with 3 levels of light. Plenty bright. had 2 lamps burn out within 30 days but no other issues. Good control panel. Easy to clean. Quiet running fan. The only downside if you will is that the night light feature can't be turned off. A sensor turns on a low level light when the kitchen is dark. March 11, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor performance This product has had a displayed replaced once and has never performed as claimed. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Halogen lights were a surprise. The dealer where w purchased the range hood did not have a working model for us to examine so we ordered from their catalog after reviewing the Broan website. The four 50 watt halogen lights get hot enough to cook raw meat if you place it on top of your stove. Our previous range hood used incandescent bulbs which got hot but not as hot as the halogens. The Broan hood has settings which will lower the lights (and thus heat). The lights in our old hood were sufficient to fully light the stove area and the "spill" over into the kitchen area. This gave us enough light to do many kitchen chores without turning on additional lighting. The Broan lights are highly directional and don't spill over into the kitchen - unless they are turned up high - then here comes the heat. I tried using lower wattage halogen bulbs but did not resolve my issues. The control panel for the various range hood settings is a little tricky to master at first but if you carefully follow the directions and practice it a couple of times it becomes easy. For the younger generation who have mastered their dvd and blu ray players the range settings will be a snap. My wife likes that the removable grease filters are dishwasher safe and easily removed. She also likes that the fan speed is automatically variable depending upon cooking conditions. The unit looks great and seems well made. You might have to temporarily take a part time job to pay for it but like everything else you get what you pay for and we are pleased that we got this model. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lighting! I just love this range hood. I've had it for over a year and have not had any problems. I bought it on a recommendation and glad I did. It has a nice sleek design that goes great with my beachy/contemporary kitchen, but I could see it in many other style designs as well. It does a great job of venting odors and smoke, but what I love most is the lighting. It has 4 lights with two settings. I like to use the ambient light sensor that will activate the lights when it detects a low level of lighting in the kitchen. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great in my kitchen I am very pleased with the looks of this hood. The only problem I have had is with the automatic night light feature. It is not easy to "turn it off". But after many tries I can usually get it to work. March 10, 2014
    Rated 1 out of 5 by A jet engine would be quieter I swear every time this comes on, usually when we have company for dinner, It's louder than a jet engine, we end up having to shout over it try to turn it off but runs for what seems like eternity. Is there a way to turn the automatic off? I am considering ripping it out. February 22, 2014

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP336SS range hood. There is a night time feature on the range hood and when activated will turn the lights on at night. If activated the little moon symbol will illuminate. To turn this feature off, press and hold the low light setting button until the moon indicator goes out. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    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.

    Answer: 
    If you look at your manual on page 3 in the Ambient Light Sensor section you will see the instructions on how to turn off the sensor. Use the button on the far right or the one on the far left. Press it until you see Aoff. That will deactivate it. Be aware that this is the factory setting so if you have a power outage you will have to reset it once your electricity returns.

    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.

    I purchased a QP336SS hood. Where connected to the cabinet, the back of the hood is 7.25" high and the front 6.625" high; a 5/8" difference. As a result, the bottom slopes up significantly causing a wierd appearance. Was this by design? If so, why. If this was by design, why is the angle between the top (horizontal) and back (vertical) of the hood not greater than 90 degrees? Please note that I preferred a hood where the back and front are the same height but the store does not accept returns. Thanks in advance for a complete answer to put my mind at rest.
