We use this new vent hood daily. Stainless Steel look is impressive, and the air flow, especially on turbo (hold High 3 seconds), is great. The lighting is a bit dim, even on high, the grease drip pan falls off too easily, and one of the vent latches is tough to operate to remove the vent, and while I like the look of hiding the buttons underneath, I worry that it might make the switches too exposed to grease and steam directly over the stove. However, it’s the best oven hood vent we’ve ever used.
This is my first time having a full hooded vent. It is very sleek modern and completes our kitchen look. However, the slats are hard to clean, I use a q-tip to help. Scratches easily.
This product is faulty. The hood vent plates keep falling off because the length of the plate is short. It is risky and can cause severe injuries if the plates fall off while you are cooking and anything hot on the stove can spill and cause severe bodily injury. It keeps falling off even when the hood is not in use.
The unit is really beautiful no question about it. It is heavy, sturdy, and definitely well built. My installation is top vented with 8 in duct and fixed to the back wall with the installation bar. The provided paper templates helped alot on this.
There are few things that could have been better.
The top damper screen holes are off by as much as 1/4 in on to the main unit. I had to drill (see photo) 2 different holes on the unit with a drill bit #2. I think the screws provided are self tapping so it was not a problem even if the holes were not exactly the same size (slightly smaller).
Given the price, I wish the provided the coal filter and at least on small duct cover. Yes, i know they are quite expensive but the unit itself isn't cheap either.
My recommendation, if you hired a contractor to install make sure you tell them to tape (aluminum tape) any obvious air leaks and ratling metal around the motor, the damper, and the ducts.
This is a great hood - though I've only been living in our new house for only a few weeks, when I do cook, the hood helps! From searing steaks or boiling pasta, the lighting and fan on works great - very satisfied
