This hood looks so modern and so sleek in our new kitchen! I can't really comment on the installation as we had all the work done by a professional, but the end result is stunning. It is very powerful and a perfect size for my 30'' stove. We do cook a lot at home and this hood takes care of all the smells. We did install it a bit lower than normally people do so the glass part is just above eye level and that looks cool too.
