Summary: We always wonder why there is no cooking smell in restaurant. This one will help you to achieve that level of satisfaction. It looks like those commercial one, it also performs like a commercial one. Very powerful blowing power and it will suck up the whole manual. Now when my wife cooking (including bacon), I will have no idea. Highly recommended and easy to install as well.

Summary: If you purchase any of the Broan hoods in this series do not install halogen bulbs - you will need to disassemble the hood to change the bulbs when they burn out. Install LED bulbs and hopefully you will move or die before they need to be replaced. The plastic housing for the light socket is weak and will likely break when you try to remove a spent bulb. You will give up the lower light setting but it is worth it.
Summary: Settled on this model with a 600 CFM internal motor & external ducting (BOTH SOLD SEPARATELY !!!) after HOURS of internet research and comparing against other models and brands. Things I like: GREAT LOOKING hood - extends outward and downward far enough to cover ALL of my range BURNERS. SUBSTANTIAL SS filters with solid handles. Very EASY to wire up. Things I DON'T like: LOUD on higher speeds. THINNER, non-commercial grade (22 ga.)stainless steel.
Summary: "My experience with Appliances connection was good. No problems with the process. The Broan exhaust fan is phenomenal. I had a Jennair which really never moved air well, but upgrading to this semi-pro model was worth the money. This things passes the BACON TEST!!!

Excerpt: Since we were replacing our 20 year old gas range, we decide to pull out the over-the-range microwave and put in a hood fan. We are thrilled with our choice. The unit was easy to install and we love the sleek, curved design of the hood. It's powerful but quiet at the lower settings. The only challenge was installing the halogen light bulbs--rubber kitchen gloves did the trick! If you purchase this hood, you won't be disappointed.
Pros: Easy to install, Great speed settings, Stylish Design
Excerpt: Fan works great. Is loud on high but that should be expected with the amount of air flow and the fan being internal. Low flow is quiet enough and that is used most of the time. Lighting is great also.
Pros: Easy to install, Great speed settings, Lightweight
