Flawed design - buyer beware

Comments about KitchenAid 36" Ducted Range Hood - Stainless Steel:
I got this installed in my new home 1.5 years ago. I have had several installation problems initially. I can say that this unit is designed poorly, which was confirmed to me by the Kitchenaid reps I spoke to. The portion of the hood that actually sucks up air is only 14" deep (from the wall). The rest of the front is a nice looking flat panel with two lights which is practically useless. So if your cooktop is like mine (24" deep) then the hood does NOT suck in anything from the front burners unless it's just boiling water steam. Yes, it works fine for the back burners and yes it will hold up a paper towel once you place it against the grille but that means nothing for daily use as the smoke/steam/smell from the front burners just goes around the front of the unit, all over your kitchen/cabinets, not into the grill.I would add that at the highest speed the unit is louder than average which is unjustified for its performance.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love my new vent hood.
from Houston, TX
I have had my hood for several months now and love its performance. I installed it myself and had no issues. the diagrams and instructions were excellent. The style and efficacy are excellent. the noise level is subduded compared to my old unit. Lighting is excellent. The only detractor for this appliance is the switches "feel" fragile.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My wife and I built our home and had KitchenAid appliances before. We decided to go with the upgrade of the commercial style hood and we couldn't be happier. With the multiple levels of fan strength you can count on any type of cooking smoke to be vented out. Easy to clean and assemble. I would buy this vent again if needed.

The grease filters are extremely easy to remove and clean. The "ink" on the control buttons has already worn off in 7 to 8 months of use.

Poor design overall
from Novato, CA, United States
The slide buttons to operate the light and fan power are flimsy with a lot of "play" in them. They feel as though they might break off with every use ? yet this was an extremely expensive unit! On top of that, the design is too deep. You. Bump your head on it frequently when cooking. Yes, it works. The fan works and the light works. But way over priced and poor functional design.

Industrial Feel and look...but a little loud
from CA 91604, United States
Like this product a lot! Just too noisy for a residential fan. I owuldn't mind if I had the fan on high to have it loud...but anytime I turn it on its too loud to hear anything going on

This fan works very well. Only problem is the noise level. When it is used at its highest level, the sound is similar to a jet plane.
from Albuquerque, NM, United States
we replaced the whole kitchen 2 months ago, including this good looking under the cabinet hood and we love it.
