Was looking for something a little different and this hood is absolutely perfect. I was trying to find a black stainless range hood to match the LG black stainless range I purchased as I did not want my microwave above the range. This one looks fantastic. It was the perfect purchase.
I have used multiple Range Hood in my old house, my parents' house and my new house. The CFM label for many hood manufacture is over rated; they probably performed at the rated CFM without static pressure, that's without duct involved. Only fool will believe that a 6 inches duct can carry 960CFM on PacAir range hood being sold in Asian market. I have one of this PacAir hoods in my old house and it's junk. I bought this E64E30SS with 1500CFM external blower for my parents' house; the performance is unbelievable. My dad have been using this set up for 3 years and there isn't much grease around kitchen with our Chinese Wok cooking with Capital Wok Range. I just bought the same one for my new house and this is the best investment. For the most time, I only had to turn the speed dial to about 1/3. No nosiy and no smell. If you love cooking, you have to own one of this hood. Keep in mine, you need to open your window a little to allow fresh make-up air. I am looking forward to install a make-up air system in the coming year so that I dont have to have my Window open from time to time.
This range hood looks great and it is the perfect size. It cost hundreds of dollars less than comparable hoods. It looks great with our range and is the perfect finishing touch to our cooking area.
We chose the QP230SS because of its positive reviews. I was tired of having to air my clothes out because the smell from the previous night's dinner (especially when we cooked fish or anything fried) would permeate my closet. Despite our kitchen's small size, I'm glad we made the decision to exchange our over-the-range microwave with this range hood. It really is quiet, and although we still need to close the kitchen doors when frying, it is, for the most part, very effective. We have a tile backsplash, and chose to install Broan's stainless steel backsplash to cover the area between the oven and the bottom of the range hood. Gorgeous? No. Acceptable? Yes.
