We definitely feel the difference in this range hood. It gets rid of almost all smoke and much of the odor out of our kitchen. And it's easy to operate. The stainless steel gives a modern look. It is not as quiet as I had hoped. But for the price, it is an excellent buy.
This range hood is well worth the money. It makes our kitchen so much more pleasant to look at. It is also very functional, and powerful to meet our home cooking needs. Installation was straight forward but took time - really have to mentally prepared for the details, like connecting the electricity, the ducting, the width of the cabinet, positioning of the screws, etc. especially ofr DIY guys like us. After installtion, we found the outside air down drafting into the kitchen when the motor is not on. The flap inside the ducting is fixed in an open position. We don't think - but not sure - it is flappable ( to a close position). It is the only thing we think could be improved. Oh, maybe the light could be brighter but we have the kitchen light we could turn on. We like this hood a lot.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Matched exactly: brushed stainless steel
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is a very well constructed range hood. Exhaust fans are powerful (up to 900 CFM) for even our greasy Chinese stir fry cooking. The best thing is, thre are four combinations of CFM one could use by combining the two switches.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate but we would have preferred to know about the dimension of the top depth from the back to where it starts to bend downward. That is where the bottom of the cabinet leaves the top of the hood, so we know how much this part sticks out.
This is a nice vent system for the money, if you are doing a lot of frying this should help, no filters to clean, seperate controles for each fan is an added bonus. The unit I got did have an emblem on the left which was the manufacturers. I did not care for that. This is not pictured in the example shown..
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? As shown over all
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be a nice product
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty much on the money
I am happy with the performance and looks of this product. The electrical connection could have been better if supplied with a plug in cord or housed in a separate box as connections got in way unless a hole was drilled right on top of the connection point.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Better than expected
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I have used this brand for the past 8 years in my previous house and had no issues. Good suction and reliable. I purchase this one to replace the one that came with my new house which was new, very noisy, poor suction and dripped oil out of the steel mesh
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
