Broan QS130 Allure Series 30-inch 220 CFM Under Cabinet Hood
8 June 2015
Summary: We bought this to replace a builders grade vent hood (probably comparable to what you could get at Lowes). I loved the shape of it - modern but not too out of place in our transitional style kitchen. The sound of the fan is fine.
Summary: This was difficult to install and had a bad fan blade piece. I contacted Broan and they send me a new one quickly with no questions asked, so I did like the customer service. Now that it is installed, I like it but I don't love it. It is noisier than I would have liked, but it looks nice.
Summary: Nice hood for the money. Fit in my 30" opening perfectly. Low profile. Two light positions, high and low, we use low at night for a night lite. The fan on low is worthless except for steam. High fan is loud but you don't run it forever so who cares.
Summary: As long as it is vented to the outside, this range hood is all you need--don't pay more. It is almost silent on the low speed, and reassuringly louder on the high speed. The two levels of light are useful. The halogen bulbs make what you are cooking look like a picture in a magazine!
