First one wouldn't draw. Immediately replaced with no hassle. When we figured out what the problem was, it was probably my installer, not the product. Have had for seven years now and has worked perfectly and we cook a lot and use it a lot. Plus, it looks expensive and gives our kitchen that contemporary look.
I haven't used the hood yet, but it is a beautiful addition to my new kitchen. I especially like the ability to control the fan and lights from both sides of the hood. The motor is a little louder than I had hoped, but it is acceptable.
This range hood looks great. It is very sleek and modern. The lights are bright and the grates pop out easily for cleaning. The touch buttons for operation are very cool and the memory setting is a nice feature. The chimney part only extends for a 9 foot ceiling and we have 12 foot in our house so we had to build an extension box to mount it, but it looks really great and I am very happy with it.
We've had this hood in now for about 2 months. It works great. I use a wok a lot for cooking, and have a 17,000 BTU American Range, and it's strong enough to handle it just fine. At high speed, it's just as noisy as the one my brother in law bought, for triple the price. I'm really happy with the performance, the noise, the look and the lighting. One of the best decisions during my remodel.
This range hood is part of a kitchen remodel. We have a 6 burner gas cook top. The hood looks great and does not overpower the space. It clears the air quickly and is surprisingly quiet. The installation was done pretty easily by my husband with my help. We got many compliments on the hood.
