Product Details

Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White, Model QS242WWH

Sets new standard for style, quiet and ease of cleaning
The Allure II provides the style and performance you demand and with DuPont Teflon®, the easy clean-up you want.

Features:

  • Allure II Sleek, Innovative Styling: Thinner And Free of jarring edges
  • Unsurpassed Quiet: We made Allure the quietest range hood ever - without sacrificing superior ventilation performance. Advanced fan blade design is one reason why Allure is 50% quieter than the average range hood.
  • The Easiest To Clean: Allure features smooth surfaces, dishwasher-safe Micro-mesh filters, and DuPont SilverStone® non-stick coating
  • Lighting That's Better Than Ever: Two powerful halogen bulbs help you see what's happening on every burner. A night-light safely guides you to a midnight snack.
  • Highly Effective Performace: Cyclonic action draws smoke and odors from every region of the cooktop, moving them directly into the filter for faster, more efficient removal. Unlike traditional ventilation, not a trace of smoke or odor escapes Allure's cyclonic action.

Specifications:

  • Ventilation Type: Centrifugal Blower
  • Sones at Normal Setting: 0.9, 100 CFM, horizontal
  • Sones at High Setting: 3.5
  • Maximum CFM: 250
  • Volts / Amps: 120 / 1.9
  • Halogen Light Quantity & Type: Two PAR20, Bulbs not included.
  • Vent-Free Charcoal Filter: BPSF, Charcoal filters purchased separately for vent-free (ductless) installation. CleanSense™ charcoal filters change colors when replacement is necessary.
  • DuPont SilverStone®

This is a fantastic upgrade to our kitchen. The dual lighting is wonderful. The low light setting is great for general cooking or as a night light in the kitchen after dark. The high light setting is really nice when cooking something delicate that you really want to keep an eye on to not over cook.The lighting covers the entire cooking surface. We opted for the charcoal filter inserts since we had to change to unvented...........WOW even when frying bacon the smell is gone. On the low fan setting you barely here the fan when standing in front of the stove cooking. The high setting is still very quite. The sealed design makes keeping it clean a breeze. So much better than the regular vent hood design. Installation was very easy. I'm an experienced DIY person. The directions are very straight forward and anyone with a little experience should be able to install this unit. Highly recommend it to family and friends.

I was disappointed in this hood from the start and now, two years later, remain so.

First - the "main" fanflow is to the left of the unit (when facing it cooking at the stove). That means that, if you are cooking on the right side units, you can really only get suction on the highest fan setting. Why it's not uniform across the unit is beyond me.

Second - the lights are not within sealed units - that means they are open and readily exposed to the moisture of the steam that the fan takes in. This moisture causes condensation in the light socket and now I have one that doesn't work at all and needs to be replaced. With the cost of the replacement part and then labor to do it - makes it not worth doing.

I will be purchasing another unit, by another manufacturer, and ensure that the fan operates across the entire unit or at least MIDDLE so that it's even and provides better coverage. The second thing I will look for is better placement of the lights and ones that are protected from the condensation so they won't corrode and stop working.

All in all, very disappointed in this unit. I purchased it due to the name and reputation, but sadly it appears that quality in Broan has gone down over the years. I wouldn't recommend this unit to anyone.

Absolutely awful

By 

from Youngstown OH

Comments about Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White:

I bought this range hood about 6 weeks ago, and I kept thinking maybe I was the problem with it. I had just moved from a previous home where I had installed a Broan and just loved it. This design isn't worth having. In fairness, this model I bought is ductless, so all the usual caveats on that apply. However, it doesn't excuse the fact this model does NOT draw. The vents are in the back and the lights up front. Even on the highest fan setting, any smoke or steam are drawn to the lights. When you turn off the lights, all that happens is you can't see...the smoke/steam stays in front of the vents. The second problem is there is no light indicator that shows over the light selection. Unless you happen to remember what you hit, you run up and down the choices until you hit it. I suspect that's a manufacturing defect. I am really disappointed in this hood. I'm going to have to purchase another one that is better, and I won't be looking at the Broan brand for it.

Stylish

By 

from Ohio, USA

Comments about Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White:

The range hood is very stylish with its stainless steel finish and 2 spot lights for bright viewing of your range top. We like the high and low light and fan settings. The installation was straight forward and the measurements were as advertised.

Nice under cabinet hood with lights

By 

from Las Vegas, NV, USA

Comments about Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White:

We bought this unit & installed it ourselves. My husband is very handy with tools and home installs/fix-its. It did require both of us to install though. I held it up while he screwed it in. We did have to make some minor modifications to our cabinet to fit as well. Otherwise, it works well for ventilating not too loud and the lighting is good too. I did have to purchase the led lights separately though. Looks nice & sleek.

Excellent product, only change would LED lights rather than the Halogen.

By 

from Houston, TX, USA

Comments about Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White:

Excellent product, only change would LED lights rather than the Halogen. Filters are easy to remove and clean and stainless surfaces clean easily. Noise level is less than anticipated for volume of air removed.

Product is easy to read

Comments about Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White:

This product works as advertised, but has no instructions on how to fit into an area between the home manufactured area and the hood area. Once figured out, it was easy to install and works great.

Very nice product works great. excellent lighting. Switching baffle from inside to outside vent is poorly designed, could be something easier.

Better than what we replaced, for certain.

By 

from Richmond, VA, USA

Comments about Broan 42" Allure II Range Hood In White On White:

Possibly it was our particular configuration, but I found the installation to be extremely awkward and difficult. In addition, in order to draw from the front burners of the stove, it is necessary to have the unit on high, which, of course, is louder. I think most people use the front burners of the stove most often. I actually have a black hood, not stainless steel. It is very easy to keep clean, so far and is attractive (not overly shiny).
