Excerpt: It took 4 visits to the store to find one that was not dented or completely damaged, packing from factory is very poor, I have not used it as yet though it seems that it will do the job, Whirlpool needs to work on improving the packing.
Summary: We chose this over other brands and models because of its Energy-Star rating and corresponding affordable price tag: only a handful of kitchen canopy hoods are Energy-Star rated. For the size of our application, its relatively low-cfm works fine. We use spices and oils in our cooking and the exhaust draw is pretty good at sucking out the odors/ hot air. Make sure its installed per the description in the manual. Ease of cleaning and operation is appreciated.
