Straightforward installation and easy hookup, even for novice do-it-yourselfers. Great-looking stainless-steel finish at a very low price point. Vent fan runs quietly.
Wiring outlet is bare metal. Sheet metal construction is very thin and can get dinged up, though that’s not surprising at this price point. Finish smudges easily.
Very economical replacement hood. Easy to install: within 15 minutes for more experienced DIYers. Two-speed fan works well to vent cooking smells. Hood light is easy to change.
Fan can be deafening at high speed. Range hood can ding easily due to thin metal. Must buy additional duct components to vent properly.
3-speed vent fan is a nice plus. LED hood light, rather than incandescent bulb, illuminates the range well. Straightforward installation.
Exhaust leaks around edges of hood. Button mounting plate can break after a few months, causing controls to sink inside the hood. LED lights are very bright and can’t be dimmed. Stainless steel smudges easily.
Enclosed bottom is attractive and easy to clean. Powerful, 3-speed vent fan that runs quietly. LCD lighting is bright and clear. Charcoal filters available if using unvented option.
A little tricky to install, particularly when lining up existing duct work. Unit is wider than specs by at least 1/8 inch. Adjusting fan speed is cumbersome using analog buttons.
Bright under-hood light is great for cooking, and lower night-light feature is a nice plus. Recirculating under-cabinet vent works well, clearing smoke and odors quickly.
Fan runs noisily on high setting. Installation is a little difficult, particularly positioning wiring. Vent opening is nonstandard, making duct hookup difficult. Collects fingerprints on the finish with barely a touch.
