This hood is beautiful and strong for it's price. Most of the hoods we were looking at started in the $$$$$, so when we came across this we took the chance and purchased it. The only problem we had was the description stated at least 8ft ceilings for installation, however, the chimney was 16 inches and the hood itself was 19 1/4 inches. This did not give us the necessary space from hood to stove top, we have 8 ft ceiligns. The hood also came with an additional 16 inch extension, great for taller ceilings. We had to get the chimney cut by 6 inches to get a more ideal space from hood to stove top. Other than that, beautiful when installed and works fine so far. This product arrived fast and in good condition with the exception of 1 light that came loose, but easy fix.

We had a problem at first because we weren't sent long enough brackets, even though our ceiling height wasn't taller than the standard use maximum. But the company customer service was excellent, as they sent out longer brackets immediately and at no charge. There was also a five inch scratch on one side of the chimney, but we simply turned that side toward the wall that no one sees. The scratch was under the protective film (the film wasn't scratched, so someone had to have seen it before packing it). Though the instruction manual made installation seem scary, it was actually much easier than we first thought. Since installation, we have gotten so many compliments from everyone who has seen it. It looks as though it should be much more expensive than it was. One drawback is that as soon as you get to level 3, the noise becomes a little bit much. But we are happy that it is doing an excellent job while it is working, so we are content to live with the noise while in use.

This product arrived very fast, was packaged very well. It looks good. Instructions leave a little to be desired. There are two halves of a flapper valve set up .. to keep the exhaust closed when the fan is not in use, there is no reference as to where these go. I emailed the customer service, they were very prompt, and supplied some photos. There is a wrench for unlocking the lighting bezels in the kit, don't lose it! I had to cut an inch and a quarter off of the chimney. I had to do this because my ceiling was not quite 8' in height, and I had the minimum height above the stove top. They do give you a chimney with an extension. Every installation will be different, this is just a heads up for first time DYI's This unit has 6 speeds, and is pretty quiet for the amount of air it moves. I think it could use two more lights at the front of the unit, in addition to the lights at the back of the unit, but it does OK. The control buttons are soft touch buttons, they can be a little finicky to work, but you get used to how to touch them with the right pressure. I'm happy with this unit.

The hood came well packaged and in two large boxes. I did lots of internet searching looking for the right range hood, but kept coming back to this one due to the 900 CFM Centrifugal blower and the curved glass. Electronic buttons did not make difference in my selection. I would actually prefer regular buttons for the simplicity and operational reliability. The Installation Manual is omitting a lot of information about the installation, it is basically useless. It does not even specify power plug location other than a 35W breaker size with a USA/Canada code that is not sufficient to a person who did not install an Euro style range hood before. I ended up installing the plug between the 6" duct tube and stainless steel chimney enclosure mounted per a code to the drywall. It supposed to be accessible. Removing screws that hold the SS chimney and the SS chimney be itself could/should be considered as accessible. The power wire is not visible this way and makes the Range Hood look professionally installed, which we did by ourselves. Our kitchen has soffits. This made the installation little more challenging. We had to cut one of the lower SS chimney wall shorter to make it fit under the soffit and to meet the minimum 28" distance of the hood from the stove. The upper SS chimney is not installed at all. Venting the range hood into an attic is not recommended. This was another challenge for us as the original hood was venting into an attic (house was built in 1950's). The unit by itself is heavy and needs to be attached to 2x4's with 4" screws to avoid vibration noise, not only to drywall with the included sheet rock fasteners. They are to be put into wall to hold the hood while mounting it. This is a challenge if you don't hit the studs with one of the existing holes on the main mounting plate/back plate, which is attached permanently to the hood already. I had to take some parts off the hood apart to be able to drill holes for a proper attachment to 2x4's. I used special drill bits to drill the holes. Even doing that bulged out the back panel of the hood slightly. I hope this won't become a problem in the future. The SS chimneys attach to wall via Chimney mounting bracket. The bracket is not one piece as in the Manual, but 2 pieces instead. I would prefer one piece that could be attached to a 2x4 with one screw that did not happen. Again, I hope this will not become a problem in the future. The SS chimney walls aren't that heavy, I just wonder if it won't get loose in the future. My other half and me both like a good craftsmanship and try to install everything properly for the products to be enjoyed without problems that could pop up later due to improper installation. While I called the 800 phone number about the different Chimney mounting brackets and let me tell you, the young man representing the company was very rude right from the beginning. He said: "Do you see another part in the box that is not in the Manual?" And he went on with more up nosed comments and answers. So I asked him to drop the disrespectful insulting attitude. I also told him that the Manuals being sent with the hoods need to be updated to show the correct hardware included in the package. Not everybody has money to get a Wall Mounted Hood installed by a professional. The lights used in this unit seem to be warm white version of MR16 35W halogen bulbs. It is not a light we are used to, it is not strong enough to really see into the pots while cooking. I need to see what I am cooking, not just to have an accent light on the back wall. My other half is using it for an early morning light to make a coffee in dimmed light conditions, it is just fine for that. I will be looking into it if I can replace them with cool warm lights or anything else to make the lights brighter. While using this vent hood we found a glitch with the lights. They are flickering in 3 different strengths. This is very annoying and is caused most likely to the buttons not being sealed properly. I read about this problems on the cheap models and thought that this double priced model would not have this problem. I was very wrong. I hope I can find an answer to this problem on the internet so I can fix it. The light button is so sensitive to a touch, you don't have to even press it. I hope it will not brake in the future while it is too sensitive to my taste. The other buttons are fine and you have to press them just a tiny bit to activate a function. We are overall happy with its gorgeous look and the smooth fan function. We hope the hood will be pleasing us day after day in our newly remodeled kitchen. PROS: Seems to be quality craftsmanship Range Hood Hood is running very smoothly in all 6 speeds. Gorgeously looking hood. Good price for 900 CFM CONS: The lights are very weak and too yellow, they are only accent lights. Lights flicker in 3 different strengths while boiling water/fluids or heavier steaming. Fan speed #6 won't stop it. Poor Installation Manual PS: As I was looking on the internet for a better installation manual I found out that this Cavaliere model is also being sold under name SPAGNA VETRO 30-inch Wall-Mounted Stainless Steel Glass Range Hood - SV218D-30. If you need better lights and positioned in the front of the hood instead against the wall, get an Electrolux RH30WC60GS model with 600 CFM. The Installation, the Parts, and the dimensions PDF for the Electrolux model is also much more in detail than Cavaliere. But the price is not as good though.

Love it!! The hood is quiet, draws in air very well and the lights are bright enough. It is the focal point in our transitional kitchen. No need to worry that it will be to contemporary for a more traditional space.

This product is worth every penny you pay for. You save over 50% and the Hood works great. My contractor just bought one for his house. Overstock shipped it with in the week and was up and running the following week. Good investment and your house will appreciate more.

This product is definitely not a one-man or one man and wife job to install. When the directions say you need 3 men to lift it--get 3 men. We made do with myself and my wife--and 2 boxes but it was difficult. The result is a glass that hits a man or tall woman in the head all the time. Beware. If you position it over the cooktop, it will be hitting you in the head. Also, the wind noise from the vent in the roof is a huge change we would re-think and possibly go with a down=draft instead. This does do a more than adequate job of collecting smoke--no more alarms going off!!!. It looks outrageous in our kitchen!!! Is very modern. Too bad we had to go ahead and strip the wallpaper off the ceiling and walls after installing to match it. very happy with the outcome.
