HARD TO FIND ITEM
from San Francisco, CA, USA
When I replaced my 30+ year old white electric range with a new black one, I wanted to change my white range hood for a matching black one. My condo is approximately 30 years old and was built without outside venting over the stove so I needed a non-ducted range hood. After an exhaustive search (pardon the pun) I finally located this Broan range hood in black. It is essentially an updated version of the 30 year old model. I had it installed professionally but watched the installation and could probably have done it myself. Very easy and quick. The fan in the updated model is not quite as powerful as the old one, but it still does a very good job of clearing up any smoke or cooking odors in my kitchen. It is fairly quiet, even on the higher speed.

Much better than the otr microwave combo I had
from Union, MO, USA
I have had microwave/exhaust hood combos for years, but when the last unit had its second magnetron go bad, I decided to switch back to just an exhaust hood. I like this much better as the exhaust is better and it is not as loud and the lighting is better. It also sets higher above the cooking area so I can see what I am doing better. This hood is fine and meets my needs quite well. I did buy the power cord rather than direct wiring. We had a difficult time getting a knockout plug removed as it apparently was not scored enough at the factory. We also had to add a filler board under our cabinets, but otherwise it installed fine. So overall I consider this to be better than what I was using before and would recommend this one to anyone looking for one.

COULD BE IMPROVED
from Stillwater, NY, USA
A little noisy. My smoke alarm 2 rooms away goes off, so it is really not as effective as the range hood I bought almost 40 years ago. The filter gets dirty easily and I don't like the fact that it is not washable. I was told by the salesman that I could not get a more powerful fan or filter. I wouldn't mind paying more for a better product, one that filters smoke and grease effectively, has a washable filter, and is a little quieter.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Looks ok and does the job, fair price but metal not as sturdy as my old one
from Halethorpe, MD 21227, USA
Biggest complaint is the hood arrived with a big dent in the back panel that rests against the wall above the stove. The carton was not damaged so it must have been packed that way. We were able to push the dent out enough to make it lay flat against the wall and that area does not show so we kept it. The metal is flimsy compared to my old hood but the color (bisque) matched my new stove perfectly. The noise level is lower than my old one but on the other hand the fan does not draw as well. It was a fair value for the price.

looks nice and works well
I thought the light could have had a better cover, or more built in.
from Heartland, TX
I had two choices from the builder's show room to fill the space above my stove in my new build house - the vent hood and a small microwave. Since I didn't want a microwave above the stove, I chose the hood. It has a light and a toggle switch to turn the fan from off to either low or high. The light serves for direct lighting when cooking and for evening when I want some light in kitchen but not the overhead lights. The fan is noisy but then I don't use it often, but will eliminate smells I don't want . The vent hood serves my purpose.
Would recommend with reservation
from Whitewater, WI
Overall it is easy to install, value is good but the noise level of the fan, in either speed is for to loud. If I could have actually heard it running before I bought it I would have continued to look more for a unit with a lower decibel level than this one..
from Independence, VA 24348, USA
The price was good. I am happy with the performance.
This is a good, economical replacement hood.
from Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
My range hood was installed in a manufactured home. I upgraded all of the original appliances. I did not choose to install a microwave over the range so I purchased this model. It fit the space perfectly. It is quiet. I think that it is all you will need over a smooth top electric range. Mine is black so it matches the appliances. The only negative thing that I noticed would be durability. The metal seems like it could dent easily.
