Make your kitchen look like the ones where the pros work with this durable wall mount range hood. The telescoping design will work in kitchens with ceilings up to nine-feet high, and it produces less noise than other hoods, keeping your kitchen quiet....more
This hood looks much better than it performs. Visually it's very nice and the fit and finish of the stainless steel is good. The product was well packaged, although the control panel had come loose and was wedged to the side of the openings for the buttons when I unpacked it. I was able to open up the control panel area by removing a few screws (which were loose) in about 5 minutes. However, in the process it became clear just how cheaply made and assembled the interior components are. Clearly all the fit and finish has gone into the exterior and corners have been cut fairly extensively on the actual blower assembly and controls.
There is no way that this vent actually does 860 cfm. The venting is only 6", and even with rigid vent it's not moving 14 cubic feet per second by a long shot. If you're cooking anything that is generating a fair amount of smoke, such as blackening fish or searing a steak this vent will not be able to handle the output. At full speed the vent is adequate for general cooking tasks, but is fairly loud at that setting.
The lights on this are next to useless. They are 35w and really do nothing other than adding some very dim accent lighting. They are not dimmable as the product information states they are, but that does not matter given how dim they are to begin with.
All in all I feel like I got a good looking vent that is great until you actually turn it on.

Packaged securely and arrived in pristine condition. No nooks or crannies to catch dust, grease or debris. Very smooth lines. Instructions left out some critical dimensions. I was able to take dimensions by measuring some reference points on the unit. Probably not a big issue for a professional contractor experienced with wall hoods. If you are a competent DIY'er, no problem. Certainly helped that I am a mechanical engineer.
We're very happy with this hood. It's quiet, good looking and has just the right amount of features. My only compliant is that the stainless steel material is a little "soft" so it dents quite easily. When installing it, you have to be extremely careful.

Installing this hood was easy to do with just two wall anchors. I would highly suggest mounting into a stud instead or using your own drywall anchors instead of the hardware provided. On my unit, I had a problem with the display working properly which was traced to a bad circuit board. Cavaliere support was very responsive and quick to send replacement parts. The fan, even with my 20' run and multiple bends, delivers a very powerful blast of air.
The design of the buttons is lacking as the lights are way too bright and really unnecessary. I solved this by taking the unit apart (4 screws) and used a Sharpie to color the LED bulbs and also spayed some white spray paint into the buttons to limit the light penetration. Doing this got the button luminosity to what I would think is the correct and usable level.
Outside of the button lighting issue, this is a well built hood and a great value.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Stainless steel body is well manufactured. Backlighting of buttons and display is too bright.

I have had this hood installed in our remodeled kitchen for about a year. I have been thrilled with it. I read another review that complained about it not working and that's actually why I wrote this review. The hood works great and I'm not sure how anyone could complain otherwise. I keep it on one of the lower settings (1-3) when I'm cooking something light and bump it up to one of the higher fan settings (4-6) when cooking something greasy or that gives off smoke of any kind. Now I will say that at the highest level it's loud--really loud--but having never owned a hood I don't have much to compare it too. Anyway, I love this hood. I seriously would buy another if I needed one. And the price is amazing. A comparable hood would have cost double at my local furniture store. In summary, great price, great quality, high end look for a low end price.

I was reluctant to but such a product online but the price couldn't be beat and it had all the options we wanted on our new vent hood.
It arrived quickly and was easy to put together. We love it above our new 36" gas stove, it works fantastic, is fairly quiet and looks amazing.

The first unit shipped to me had a nasty scratch on the front of the hood. I emailed O.com and they immediately sent me a return OK and made arrangements for a new unit to be shipped. It arrived about 7 days later and was fine. Having the unit installed next week, but from the look of things this appears to be a high quality range hood at a very reasonable price, especially compared to other units providing the same abilities.
