Easy to operate, two-speed blower and lighting controls
Uses four halogen MR16/GU10 35W lamps (bulbs not included)
Two-level light settings
The four halogen lamps have two settings to help you see if you added a pinch or a clump to that delicious sauce. When a recipe does go awry, the blower has two speeds to help you hide the evidence. This stainless steel hood has mid-mesh filters with anti-microbial coating, which means easier cleanup when you are done making your meal.
This unit does need to be hard wired. Professional installation is recommended.
It is a good unit for the price. I wish it would be more efficient during Non-ducted operation. Over all a nice unit. Very good lighting.
Make sure if you have non-ducted setup to get the charcoal filter that is not included with the unit. Also, lights are not included also.

Item arrived in manufacturer's carton only... It appeared to have gotten wet...It was also quite dented and looked to have been on quite a long shipping journey... It also appeared to have been opened previously as if it was not a new item...Upon opening the item I found scratches and dents... As previously stated the light sockets were maladjusted and one socket base was bent and had to be repaired...

Easy access to screens for cleaning. Very powerful for removing odors and smoke with none of the bulkiness associated with other range hoods. Only disadvantage is the specialized light bulbs (not included) are very tricky to install. A little suction cup is required, as there are no room for finger-holding the bulbs to screw them in. So far, I've only got the two front ones installed, but this provides plenty of light. Recommend installing the light bulbs FIRST before hanging the vent in place. I got the little suction cup from Amazon with no problem.
I was shocked to see that the box had been opened and found the top of the Broan hood slightly dented. The seller had to have known this and yet they sold it as brand new to me. We decided to go ahead and keep it because it was less noticeable since it was on the top, and we had waited so long and wanted to get it installed and the kitchen back to normal. As concerning the Broan Hood Evolution series 1, this hood is very quiet and and the 4 lights are great for illuminating my cooking surface. I do recommend to friends this hood, however I don't recommend buying from someone who sells items they know are dented!
This item came with no installation template, no hardware for installation, no screws, no light bulbs, ... I had to pay an electrician an extra $75.00 for installation because he had to make an additional trip with mileage to the hardware store to buy installation hardware.... and it extended over into the third hour... now I don't know where to get the light bulbs and the installation instructions said they were included... so disappointed..

Can this be ducted to the outside? Can it accommodate a vent size of 10"x 4 1/2"?choca on Aug 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This exhaust fan is a ductless fan with washable filters that pull the air through, clean it and put it back into the home kitchen. So in answer to your question no it will not acomidate the vent size you mentioned.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 30, 2013
Does this unit need to be installed hard-wired or can it be plugged in?kimgray on Apr 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us kimgray. This unit is Hard wired. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 22, 2013
Thank you for your question. The vent pipe can be 3 ¼” x 10” vent or can be 7” ducting.You can vent it 13’ up. This longer duct run thou is going to just make it where the customer will have to have the blower on high more often. I hope this helps you. Have a great day!
