So much better than the down draft

Comments about Best U102 Series Hood - Stainless Steel Finish:
We bought this product in conjunction with a JennAir 36" 6 burner range. It was a complete custom install in the cabinet and is vented with 8" conduit to the exterior using an 8" wall cap. It has 4 settings on the blower. We've used the 1st setting most of the time, and it is quiet enough to still carry on a conversation. The higher settings are of course louder but the fact of the matter is we don't smell the food that we cooked the previous day in the house. Air flow is not a problem. In fact, the installer joked about being able to stand under the wall cap and dry hair. One caution...if you're using the hood in a corner like we are, be aware when you extend the hood to use the blower, other cabinet doors could open and be damaged.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was my mistake
from Rancho Murieta, CA, USA
I have had this range hood for about 5 years. I thought I was buying a high-end product and was happy to pay a premium price for it. Unfortunately, it was very difficult to install and is still feels loosey-goosey when moving the slide portion in and out. That's the least of my issues. First, it is the loudest range hood I've ever heard - even at the lowest setting - and that includes many in commercial installations. There is no way to clearly hear anyone even just across the room. To make matters worse, even at the high speed, it does a poor job of sucking up the steam and/or smoke from the stove top. The steam just streams up and around the hood and up to the cabinets and the ceiling. I've had it looked at by other contractors who say it is just the way the range hood works. I'm not looking at having it taken out and replaced with something else. Needless to say, I am very disappointed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
