Time consuming ways of installing hoods are now a thing of the past. The FIT system eliminates measuring, cutting and filler strips for a perfect fit every time. Once installed, homeowners enjoy the quiet operation of 7 sones at highest speed with three fan speeds and recirculation option. This way, the vent hood doesn't disturb family time in the kitchen. And when cooking introduces steam, grease, smoke and odors into the surrounding air, 350 CFM takes care of it. Plus, this model offers halogen lighting to brighten the cooking area.

        Carefully selected this model and had cabinets designed around the specs provided. Unfortunately ours was wider than the 29 15/16" specified by Whirlpool. Our unit was about 30 1/8" wide. Will not fit the 30" opening specified by the manufacturer. Had to send the electrician away and am now regrouping trying to find a model to fit the dimensions we designed cabinets for. Very disappointed that we were not able to rely on the measurements Whirlpool/KitchenAid provided us. I liked this model because it was not very tall and now I am going to have a hard time finding another unit that will fit the space allocated in the now already completed cabinets. This is my 3rd kitchen reno and I have never had this problem before. Unit appears it could be the specified size if it had been assembled correctly. It doesn't look as though the sides were pushed in fully before being secured. Doesn't solve my problem. If you buy this unit be sure to measure the actual product and not go by the measurements provided by the manufacturer.

              I bought this Stainless Steel Range Hood about 3 weeks ago to replace an older hood and to match the new Stainless Steel Range which we also purchased. They installed it the next day. Installation was very fast and installer was very capable and he even commented on its looks as he had never seen one before. Fit was perfect, looks Outstanding. Better than the previous model. Wife is Extremely happy with it and takes great care in keeping it looking like new. Very glad to have made this purchase and everyone who has seen it have commented on it.

                    Since I didn't have a vent to outside, I was looking for a stylish range hood that had the functions I needed; variable speeds, good lighting. But my first choice was that it as a recirculating hood. The underside of this range hood, has a grease filter, but since I was using it as recirculating hoot, I ordered a set of carbon filters as well form Whirlpools website. What is really unique are the air vents on top of the hood, you don't even see them, they certainly push out a lot air. This Wirlpool range hood met all my needs and if I ever put in a vent to outside, it can easily convert to handle that as well.

                                The hood has great lighting to go along with a quiet yet good fan. All the steam/smoke from our stove top cooking gets sucked right out of our kitchen.

                                The product is advertised as a ventless solution but fails to mention the charcoal filter needed is not included.

                                However, once the filter was purchased seperately it's a great product.

                                      We purchased a new home that did not have duct work to circulate the air over the stove. This is an excellent work-around until we can afford to have the duct work put in. Also, once we do, this hood can still be used once the duct work is in place.

                                                  Purchased this on sale online. Parts and hardware were contained inside. The instructions were vague, and the actual installation step was missing! Looked at the step in Spanish side and figured it out. I could not attach supplied damper to top of hood due to clearance issues, so I fit it into external house vent and works fine. 2 hours later it was done. Looks like professional install job. It is very powerful and love the bright lights. Compliments my whirlpool oven beautifully. Even with the FIT system, still needed an extra hand while screwing it in.

                                                        I like the different speed options. Very quiet on lowest setting, but can be quite loud on the highest setting. Stainless steel finish really dresses up the kitchen. Satisfied customer.
