As a designer by trade, I renovated my whole house on a budget without sacraficing taste. I bought almost everything from Overstock.com. This Cavaliere Euro hood is sleek, beautiful and functional. I saw the same piece elsewhere for a lot more. My husband is a gourmet chef and this hood really does the duty we require with daily serious cooking. We are very happy with all of our purchases so far.
I purchased the Cavaliere Island Mount Range Hood. I am very impressed with the product overall. It looks better than what was depicted in the picture and it was an outstanding deal. We have plugged it in (although not installed yet) and wow, what a suction. I saw a comparable make and model, same design, etc. in a local store and the cost was nearly triple what I paid. One downside, the internal boot (there are 3, two that go over the top of the one I am referring to, was damaged. It looked like maybe something poked into the box in the warehouse or during shipping and then pulled out, bending out the metal body. We haven't finished installing, but it looks like we can bend it back in and have it still work fine. I realize we could call the company for a new boot, but we don't want to be wasteful and by bending back and using what we have, we won't lose anything in function or quality, but we may save the environment a bit! Basically, this is a solid product and if you are looking for this type of range hood, this one's a winner.
We are doing a total remodel and chose this after multiple reviews and different websites sourced Cavaliere as a great brand. We are extremely pleased with the outcome. Not sure if we would have had the same with other similar styles in different brands. We are super happy with this websource and the product.
I did a lot of research on range hoods and am writing this review because this particular model seems to have almost no reviews anywhere.. The need was for a high CFM range hood of at least 800 CFM that was not very costly and looked good. The hoods at ***** and **** ***** looked great but did not have a CFM higher than 500 at most. I had cycled through a couple of other brands which were defective upon being opened and it was with some degree of anxiety that I ordered this model. There Cavaliere model SV218B2 has a lot of great ratings but was backordered at the time and this PSL model looks much better although a tad higher in SONES rating. The hood arrived 2 days ahead of the estimated arrival date. My installer who does a lot of range hood installs was impressed at the quality of the steel. He said that it was thicker than what he has seen. It was also relatively easy for him to install - there was a plastic sleeve that worked perfectly with his tubing. However he suggested not to use the tubing supplied by Cavaliere since it is flexible and could accumulate oil and was not to code. He was also impressed at how quiet it was for 860 CFM.
