This range hood was not easy to install. The holes in the hood did not line up with any wood surfaces in which to screw them. My husband and I had to modify the cabinet in order to install the range hood. Also the description said 2 light settings and a night light. There is no night light setting in addition to the high and low settings. That is false advertising in my opinion. Range hood looks nice. I still don't know how well it works. We just finished installing it.

I was so excited to get this ventilation system for our kitchen. It replaced one that simply recycled the air, whereas this one vents to the outside. Upon installation, only one of the two lights worked. I called customer service, which was a pleasant experience. He spent well over 45 minutes with me trouble shooting and finally decided to send me new lighting parts, as one of the switches was faulty. Everything worked great for about three months. Then the fan started to get really noisy when turned on high. Almost as if it were out of balance. I cleaned the blades best I could but to no improvement. Then, the light bulbs melted the plastic cover when they dropped down a bit and ended up touching the plastic. $25 later, I insert a new plastic cover. I made some modifications to the light assembly to hold it up out of the way of the plastic cover, but the heat of the light bulbs is still making it crack. Now, the right light comes on only when it feels like coming on. I have checked all the wiring, and have strong connections. I made sure that the bulb was screwed in tightly, and again, it was. I cannot in all honesty recommend this product. Ever. It looks great, works lousy. Buyer beware.

Once installed it works great.
This under cabinet range hood would possibly be installed easier if I didn't have to deal with an existing exhaust vent. It was literally a pain in the a__.

Great range hood
from Bastrop, TX 78602, USA
My range hood installed very easy and it looks great. The fan can really clear out any smoke or odors. I couldn't be more pleased.

Looks stunning in my kitchen!
from North Carolina
My contractor tried to get me to switch hoods as my house was being completed. Absolutely not! was my response and I don't regret it for a minute. It looks great with my new kitchen set-up and is very functional. I did think it a little pricey but was worth it in the end.
This is an excellent hood...
from Sun Prairie, WI, USA
We recently moved into a different house. The existing range hood was old, noisy and barely moved any air. After doing a LOT of research, I decided on the Broan QT230BL range hood. Installation was fairly easy, as all the mounting holes matched the previous hood, but the existing vertical duct was slightly off center. No biggie, I was able to move the damper assembly 1/4" to the right, and then the hood fit perfectly.The variable-speed fan is very quiet even at full speed, and the two-level lighting is nice. The fan draws very evenly from all corners of the cook-top, with no "spill-out" into the room. I'm very happy with the looks, performance, and value of this hood, and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Stylish stainless steel, variable speed fan.

This range hood works effectively with useful multi-setting variable speed. Also has over head light with two settings that is very useful; the brighter setting helps with cooking and the lower setting is useful for a night light, or if you need subdued lighting all around to enjoy the meal you have just prepared.
from New Richmond, WI 54017, USA
the vent works ok, but the workmanship is terrible. spot welds are very visible and there are gaps in the seams that should be tight. it was very disappointing to open the box and find a third rate vent. we had hoped that we could show off our new range and hood, but we don't want guests to see this mess.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
