Excellent hood to compliment your stainless appliances

Summary: This was a great replacement for our less attractive (white) Kenmore hood once we bought all new stainless appliances. The 3-stage lighting is beautiful and though the lights do put off some heat, it's not enough to warrant finding cooler bulbs that don't look nearly as nice. The Advanced Heat Sentry system that automatically turns on the fan when it senses an abundance of heat can easily be disconnected so you don't have to tolerate the noise during dinner/conversation...

Summary: Great hood, very quiet and easy to install for the moderately skilled DIY'er. Love the ramp up / down for the fan and lights. Once the auto heat sensor kicks in it does take a while to shut it self off, I like that feature.
This hood would be fine if you don't cook that much

Summary: This hood would be fine if you don't cook that much. However, if you cook a lot the Heat Sentry(tm) feature will drive you crazy. As others have mentioned for other models with this feature, you can't turn the fan off when it kicks in and it's not the low quiet speed. It kicks in at a much louder medium speed. It starts up every time it detects too much heat and for us that is when one burner was on high or two were on medium.
The price was right and the reviews looked good. I have not been disappointed

Summary: I spent a long time reading reviews and looking at Range Hoods before deciding on the Broan. The price was right and the reviews looked good. I have not been disappointed. We had no problem installing the hood. It looks great in the kitchen, and most important of all, the extractor fan is very quiet. The lights are bright, and cleaning is a breeze. I've been using this unit for six months and am very very pleased.
Up until it quit working I though I had made a good purchase.

Summary: I bought this item and had it professionally installed in the middle of April. Suddenly in early June the lights and the fan quit working. For about a week the fan worked intermittently and now after not working for about 7 weeks the lights have just come back on, but still no fan. I looked at Amazon in early June only to be informed that it was past the return date. Very, very frustrated at this point. Up until it quit working I though I had made a good purchase.
Summary: Fits a typical 30 inch range space. Had it professionally installed. No complaints. Gives you more headroom than the microwave oven that it replaced. Pulls air much more effectively, than the microwave vent. The heat sensor feature takes a little getting used to, as it runs on its own, and you can't turn it off, easily. The four halogen lights can put out a lot of light, and a lot of heat. I may change them to LED, some time in the future.
