    Rated 3 out of 5 by This product does not remove smoke like my other cabinet hood This product looks great. It was easy to install. Strong construction. Fan speeds are automatic. But, while cooking I have noticed the this product does not remove smoke from the cooking area above the burners. I have even taken the filters out for I thought they were restricting the air flow. I have noticed that smoke and visible vapors enter the the hood through the lamp areas instead of the filter areas. As far as smoke removal, my previous much cheaper hood worked much better. As a note, I have used this model hood in my previous home and it worked much better. So I was comfortable with another purchase of the same model for my new home. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Customer Service...... This is a great product at a reasonable cost. The best part of this product is the customer service received 6 months after purchase. A memory board malfunctioned and we called for service. The Broan Company sent a technician to our home within 2 days. The part had to be ordered but the repair was done within 5 business days. We were please at the company's no-nonsense response. April 13, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stove top hood. Hood works great. Looks impressive and easy to use. The halogen lights provide excellent light for the cook top. Quality construction. April 7, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Has been installed 1year now, very happy. We were replacing an older vent hood, so installation was a breeze. Simply removed the old unit and install the new one. Ours does not vent to the outside, but it is very effective for removing steam from the the stove top area. It automatically turns on if temperature in the hood reaches a set temperature ... A nice feature. The variable speed of the fan means you can adjust to accommodate your needs and it doesn't sound like a jet engine starting up. Also enjoy the 3 brightness settings for the lights built into the hood. We have been very pleased and would recommend to anyone. March 15, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by unimpressed The intake is all the way on the left side of the range, it doesn't have enough power to suck up the stuff from the right side, especially on the first burner. It is supposed to vent to the outside but it still blows out the top back into the kitchen. The people who installed it have been here twice but they just threw their hands up and said contact Broan. It does have a good amount of light but I had a hard time finding the right light bulbs for the hood. March 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The features in this product are excellent. This product is great. I have used it everyday. It is easy to clean ,works excellent and look beautiful. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This unit is much better than my old one I like the light push button controls I like the fan push button controls And that it STAINLESS STEEL March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Grea t product, quiet, and very effective I purchased a stove from Maytag and a hood vent from Maytag.....cheap, exposed the wiring harness, and noisy, so I replaced with the Broan which was a good value for the product. Good lighting, easy to install and looks good and easy to maintain. I would recommend this product t o anyone wanting a stainless steel range hood. March 10, 2014
