We were looking for a range hood strong enough to get rid of the grease and strong smells associated with our Indian cooking. This product was highly recommended by the sales person at the local Menards. After coming back home we found it approx. $75 cheaper on Amazon (after shipping). This product was easy to install into the existing ducted vent. It has two speed levels for the fan. It is absolutely quiet at low speed operation (I guess 180 CFM), but is audible at high speed (450 CFM). The four halogen bulbs (4 pk at IKEA for $10) installed very easily using the rubber suction cup tool, and do provide very bright light (again two levels possible). The two filters snap out easily and can be machine washed â€" a feature that my wife simply adores. Looking at the transformation that this product has brought in to our kitchen, I decided to install one in the apartment that I rent out. In this installation there was no vented duct. So, I had to piggy back the filters with activated carbon filters (that I purchased from Menards) so as to remove any odors. In this non-ducted installation the fan operation was much louder even at lower speed. Overall, this is a great product at a very good value. When I received the 2nd unit via. mail, I found the plastic blower fan broken. Upon contacting the customer service, they shipped me a replacement that came in just 2 days. The customer service at Broan is just oustanding.

Decent product for the price, except for the fan switch issue

As a number of others have reported, this model suffers from a design defect with the fan switch mounting bracket. Mine has broken twice now. Replacing the switch assembly is a fussy job that takes about an hour. I have requested a 2nd replacement, and I hope they have improved the design this time. Other than this problem, the unit performs decently. I wish I had bought a different model that extends further over the range; smoke and fumes from the front burners don't get exhausted very effectively. On high speed, the fan is very loud.

Fan Switch Failed
from Hilliard, OH, USA
Comments about Broan Evolution Series 36" White Under Cabinet Range Wall Hood:
Nice looking hood and relatively easy to install (with two people). The hood worked well for a little over a year, but then fan switch started acting up. Now if the fan is switched on it is very difficult to get the rocker switch to turn the fan back off. Other reviews indicated similar issues with the fan & light rocker switches. It is fairly expensive to buy replacement switches for this unit. If the switches were extensively used or in a location where physical abuse would occur, I could understand the failures, but this appears to be just due to sub-standard components being used. Very dissappointing!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Magnifique! Holds up to the toughest odors and smoke.
If a non-vented hood can hold up to the French dish "steak au poivre," beef steak encrusted in peppercorns and cooked on high heat in a cast iron skillet, it can do anything. Happy to report, it does. The "pepper smoke" that is given off during cooking is almost suffocating if you inhale it. But even with a non-vented hood, the Allure hood took care of it. I was astonished and very pleased as I never cook this meal with a non-vented hood. From my experience, the Allure is the best non-vented out there. Costly, but much more than the noisy useless hoods that most non-vented kitchens have.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Cheap light and fan switches
Disappointed in the switches. Light switch and mounting broke after three months. Mounting plate plastic is too thin.
I love I had 1 in my house and bought one for my parents

Comments about Broan Evolution Series 36" Black Under Cabinet Range Wall Hood:
Simple, inexpensive range hood
from Portland, OR
Product fits the space well & works well. I have used LED halogen globes and these units are slightly longer than traditional halogen globes. While the unit can adjust the light depth, there is insufficient adjustment for the depth of these globes. Otherwise the operation of the unit is extremely quiet on #1 fan setting which is all you need most of the time.
from Greenfield, WI, USA
We are enjoying the quality, performance,and look of this range hood. I was glad that I purchased the professional install as it was more work than I thought it would be. It would have been nice if the 4 Halogen lights and 2 chacoal filters were included, rather than having to purchase them extra.
Under cabinet range hood
from West Brookfield, MA, USA
A great product. It is very quiet and very efficient. It also has a nice appearance and easy to clean. We used LED lighting which is more efficient.
could use an LED bulb instead of the halogen
from Bentonville, AR, USA
I don't use the under light so much since I have a lot of lighting in my kitchen, but it is very bright when I do use it. I've not used the fan much yet. I don't really get too hot using the recommended halogen bulb, but I believe an LED would have been better? Easy to clean!!!!! and it looks very nice with all my other stainless steel appliances thank you

Good range hood
Overall, this is a pretty good product. I had to replace the switch after a year of use, but I called the company and they sent a replacement free of charge. Also, the smoke does billow out from the sides a bit. Other than that, it's not a bad value for the price.
Looks good - works OK
from Moorhead, MN, USA
Looks very impressive. Sometimes it seems to blow more smoke around than it actually sucks up.
