Summary: The good -Hood works well. Wish it were less noisy, but at least it works. The bad - As noted by a previous reviewer, installation of the halogen light bulbs is a nightmare. You have to buy them separately. I did not know this so our installer was long gone before I was able to buy the bulbs (not all hardware stores carry them). It took me and my wife taking turns literally hours of effort (and a couple You tube how to videos) to get them in. Extraordinarily poor design.
Summary: The hood looks sleek, except the filter grates show much more than the catalog photo. I'm not pleased with this "industrial" look, but will live with it because I like the performance. It does the job I bought it to do. I can't really speak to ease of installation, because I wasn't at home when the contractor installed it. I like the way the filters remove for cleaning in the dishwasher.
Summary: Excellent product when combined with proper exterior blower. One issue I have had is the light sockets are not well constructed. Replacing the lamps often results in the sockets coming out of their mounts. This requires removing the entire control panel to repair.
Summary: I love my range hood. It looks amazing with my stainless fridge and dishwasher and it compliments my Wolff Range perfectly. You can barely hear the fan when it is running, the heat goes right up so cool cooking is a breeze, and the lights are bright.
Summary: I love this hood, It is beautiful and the halogen lites are great. I also like the quiet motor and tiny lite to let me know that it is on. Adjustment speeds are very good also. Lites have a dimmer. I haven't had to clean the vents yet. Looks like it will be more effort than my old 1992 GE hood screens. Will have to read the manual.
Summary: We cook a lot, and were looking for a powerful range hood. This model is very powerful. In fact, we almost never use it at full force (it is a little loud at high speeds). I like that the filters are stainless and therefore durable. They are easily cleaned in the dishwasher. There are two drawbacks as far as I can see. One is that the lightbulbs are difficult to change given the tight opening and the depth of the bulb in it.
Summary: It is impossible to have a conversation with anyone in the room while cooking near this fan. Impossible to hold a telephone conversation as well. Just awful. I would rip it out if I could. Can't imagine that people live with it actually.
