No regrets. I would get this same one again.
I have had this hood for approx. 7 years. Performs great. I love that it slides in to hide when not in use. Adjustable fan speed. Awesome. Beautiful finish on exposed slide.

Looks good but functions fairly.
Had somebody install it. No idea how to clean the inside. Been changing the filter and wiping down the metal parts. I am not sure if that is enough. Liked that it is hidden in a cabinet but not sure if works enough. The smoke detector in the house turns on when my husband is cooking steak or baking?? But you can smell outside the food he is cooking also

Best EVER ! ! !
A fan when you need it, a light when you need it - - other times it is almost out of sight, blending in with the cabinets. Even a tall 'chef' doesn't have to worry about banging their head.
Totally love it - - and so does everyone that sees it - - when we point it out ! ! ! It is a bit more expensive than regular hood vents - - but then, this is NOT ordinary :)

Elegant & Functional
We purchased our apartment condo right after it was built and the Broan Elite hood fan was there already and we couldn't be happier with the look of it and also the functionality. It's been more than a year now that I use this hood fan everyday since we are both big fans of cooking and baking and it has been great. Love the slide in design!!!

great features but a little hard to install
I replaced the older model slide out hood with this one.
Much better lighting design than the old incandescents.
Disappointing to have to hack up and modify my existing
cabinet to properly hang this one when it should have been
a drop in. The old one was 18 years old and the fan and
motor still worked fine but the fan/light switch was balky
and the lamps had melted their lenses with no replacements
available. Love the variable speed fan so you can keep the
noise down when you're just simmering something. Hate
the cheap filters. modified my old metal ones to use instead.

My old downdraft died and could not be repaired. The space between the bottom of the overhead cabinet and the top of the stove was not deep enough for a conventional range hood. This hood was a a great solution and integrated beautifully into the overall design of the stove area. It performs better than the downdraft ever did, and having the extra light over head is a bonus.

What is the height of the glass drawer that will show under the kitchen cabinet, and what color is the underside of the fan (on stainless version)
I want to know what will be visible along the bottom of the cabinet, viewing the cabinet from the front, as I am trying to have a line of wall cabinets that line up perfectly, and am wondering how the installation of the fan will affect the look, or will it be almost invisible? Also, if you looked under the cabinet, is the underside of the stainless/brushed aluminum fan also a stainless color? Thanks
The height of the glass drawer that slides out is 1 inch. While it will be visible, it won't detract from your cabinet line by much. It is a stainless color looking at the range hood from the underside.

Do you have an install document for 153601?
The installation documentation is for the 24" model. I am looking for the documentation for the 36" model.

can this unit be ducted horizontally?
We would like to vent this parallel to the ceiling joists of the kitchen to an outside wall. If it can be ducted horizontally do you know how many feet in can run--we need about 30 feet to get across the kitchen to the outside wall. Thank you.
Thank you for your question on the Broan model 153601. This model uses a vertical discharge (3 1/4" x 10") duct only. We would recommend using two feet of straight pipe before ducting back. Please contact Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453. They will need to get more information from you in order to provide you with the information you need.
