We are very happy with this range hood. Delivery was fast and everything was contained and in new condition. Very pleased with the more-than-normal number of fan speeds and very happy with the quietness of the fans at the lower speeds. The highest level gets a little loud, but if you are needing the highest level of fan to exhaust smoke from your kitchen, I would think that the loudness of the fan would be the least of your worries at that point and time. I am a very handy person, do renovations myself, and work in architecture. I have to say the installation instructions were not extremely clear. I eventually abandoned reading the instructions and did it by instinct. Turned out great - and only after it was installed did a few of the unclear instructions finally make sense. All in all, no disappointment with this product.
I spent many months searching for a sytlish, functional and affordable range hood for our kitchen remodel, I could not be more pleased with this purchase it has it all! The value is outstanding, I looked at a similar model with even less features that retailed locally for over $800.00. The features are fabulous, including the 6 speed fan, dimmer light control, time delay and automatic cleaning reminder. The quality is very good, the construction is virtually seamless so no sharp edges to cut your fingers on. I have only used the high speeds a couple of times and the low speed moves more air than my previous over the range microwave model. I love how quiet and effective it is. A few other details, ours did not come with the handles on the filters as in the picture, it has recessed cavities for your fingers to pull down for removal. The lights, though at the back, are still bright enough to illuminate the cooking area, hanging the hood at the max height recommended helps as well and aids in the capture of steam and smoke. We are very happy with this range hood, with Overstock's customer service and speedy shipping!
We've had the fan for a year and it still works well. Not crazy strong suction, and a little loud on high, but it gets the job done and it looks great. A few months ago, the bulb burned out (as they do) and as my husband tried to replace it, the inner ring around the light got bent. After many online searches for a replacement part, Overstock customer service came to the rescue. Although the fan is over a year old, Overstock was super and helped locate the part for us - complete with a shipping number! We were nervous buying such a big item online, but no worry needed! Thumbs up for the fan - but a super thumbs up for Overstock and their customer service.
I just bought the Cavaliere-Euro Range Hood and it arrived on time. I have not installed it yet that's why I am giving only 4 stars. But it looks just like it was described. I think it is a good buy. I will post another review when I am able to use it.
I hired a contractor to install the hood. He did a good job . This range hood look exactly like what I expected. It's quiet and powerful compares to others. It almost makes you feel like it's not sucking the air if there is no smoke for you to distinguish. I love it. Price is good too. If you're a handy man, you may save the install fee which is almost the same cost of the hood. :-(
Pros: apparently powerful fan, solid SS, nice specs on paper, LCD screen is a good idea. Cons: LCD screen is cheap and small, hard to read, SS is not evenly polished. There is no sound barrier around the motor, so the low noise claims in the specs are hard to believe. Most troubling was that the unit was not functioning right out of the box. The fan would not rotate, no matter what the settings, even though there was some noise coming from the motor. Returned the next day. We will not buy this brand again. If you take your chances and buy it, follow the instructions, and plug it to the wall right away to check if it is actually functioning.
The hood was easy to install and seems to work well. Is quiet for the amount of air it moves. The timed off feature is great but I do not use it often enough so I have to find the books each time.The manual for the installation leaves a lot to be desired. The suggested location for the power plug is lacking good thing for me I waited until the unit arrived before installing the plug. Mounting on wall is easy. The duct covers are a nice heavy gauge SS and can be a little difficult to manipulate. This is not a self install project for someone who has not experienced in this type of project. Performance is Great Manual is poor- controls sometimes difficult get right the fist time- I would recommend it it was a good value less than 50% of what I could buy locally for the same quality and less features.
Real easy to install, easy operation and runs quiet. Make sure to install it high enough. Close to the max dimension given will work to best utilize the lights which are mounted in the rear end. This way you will be able to light up the inside of your pots on the cook top.
Its been 7 months since we are using this hood and I am very happy with it. Very good exhaust power, only draw back is the lights are at the back and the front two burners do not get enough light, we always keep our kitchen main lights turned on and if using a 24Qt pot it hard to see inside. I wish the light would have been built with tilt option or it would be in front. Overall good hood if you do lot of cooking.
As a designer by trade, I renovated my whole house on a budget without sacraficing taste. I bought almost everything from Overstock.com. This Cavaliere Euro hood is sleek, beautiful and functional. I saw the same piece elsewhere for a lot more. My husband is a gourmet chef and this hood really does the duty we require with daily serious cooking. We are very happy with all of our purchases so far.
I love the product so much. I had refer this product to my family and friend. In law love it and had bought it last month and another sister in law also buy it too. Overall my family and friends love it and would buy this product in the near future, very easy install.
I was a bit hesitant to order such a large piece of our kitchen remodel online, however am very glad we did. This piece is stunning and is very classy and functions wonderful. We get so many compliments on it. Alot of the reviews complain about the lights on the hood being at the back of the unit - this actually isn't an issue for us, as we have plenty of light in the kitchen and have beautiful recycled class tiles along our backsplash, which the lights in the rear of the vent hood really highlight. otherwise, we have done a lot of cooking in the new kitchen with our commercial-style range (blue star - 22,000 btu's on the front burners) and the exhaust removes all smoke and heat that comes up. we haven't had to had the hood on more than a 3 or so so far because it is so strong. we have a fire alarm in our kitchen not too far from the stove that has yet to go off when this vent hood is running. overall - very pleased with this and would highly recommend to anyone considering.
The hood is very attractive. The multi-speed fan can run without the lights being on. The lights are adequate and have a dimming feature. It will be easy to clean the filters when the countdown feature tells me it is time to do so. I replaced an existing fan with this unit. The only problem I had was the old exhaust had a 12" rectangle cutout outside and this ductwork is a 6" round. I had to close up the old hole and drill a new one. The outside flap rattles with every slight breeze. I like the range hood very much.
