We chose this over other brands and models because of its Energy-Star rating and corresponding affordable price tag: only a handful of kitchen canopy hoods are Energy-Star rated. For the size of our application, its relatively low-cfm works fine. We use spices and oils in our cooking and the exhaust draw is pretty good at sucking out the odors/ hot air. Make sure its installed per the description in the manual. Ease of cleaning and operation is appreciated. Overall, its a good, well designed, inexpensive no-nonsense workhorse in our kitchen.

We had Whirlpool Gold Series appliances put in our new home just under three years ago. The range hood light does not turn on or flickers sometimes when the fan is on. I called costumer service and was told the appliance is no longer under the 12 month warranty. This is more of a decorative appliance and not heavily used like a dishwasher,cooktop, and oven. We have used the light on the range hood a total of 10 times or less over the time we have lived in our home. When you factor in the service call, replacement part, and labor it would make more sense to replace the range hood considering the longevity of this appliance is 2 years and 8 months. I expected more from a company of your magnitude on all levels.

Watch out! Replacement light bulbs are $55 for this bad boy
from Peoria, IL
Comments about Whirlpool 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:
I NEVER would have purchased this range hood if I would have known that to replace a lightbulb it costs $55! Completely ridiculous! Wish I would have gone with something else!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Do not purchase this hood
I would not recommend this canopy hood. We've just had ours installed and i'm extremely disappointed with it. It is low quality for the price and the feature i most dislike is the fluorescent lighting. Not only is it very poor light but it reminds me of being in an old fashioned office building with a overhead strip light that gives you headaches. It's not bright enough to light up the cooking space below and looks very old fashioned (when most lights are now LED).Our hood also arrived damaged and unfortunately because we were over the 30 day return policy by the time we opened the box up to install (our kitchen renovations were delayed due to an injury) we discovered a significant dent to the right hand corner. Whirlpool lacked any customer service and could not help us in any way. So we've paid $800+ for a damaged hood in our brand new kitchen with a light we won't ever use. Very disappointed, we will not purchase from Whirlpool again.

We just finished installing this and it looks great! We have tall ceilings so we had to purchase the extended kit which matched well.

good but not great.

The suction area is a little narrow. Steam can easily escape to the sides of the hood fan. The appearance is ok.
Awesome Kitchen Addition
By Retired teacher
from Ohio, United States
I have never owned a range hood before and thought it was a luxury I could never afford, but I bought this one to match my kitchen range a couple of months ago and am simply thrilled with it. It is quiet, yet has three fan settings. The light is great as well, illuminating the entire top of the range.It looks lovely in my kitchen and receives many compliments from family and friends.

This range hood looks good but has reliability issues
from Upstate New York
We bought and installed this range hood when we remodeled our kitchen 3 years ago. It does a decent job of removing grease, steam, and odors but not great. I wish now that I had got the more powerful 400cfm model instead of this one. The florescent light that makes this an energy star appliance has given us much trouble. It was not coming on, so we replaced it. Now, it only comes on sometimes and we'll have to press additional buttons for the fans to get it to come on sometimes. It will just randomly turn off while you are cooking as well and then pop back on a little while later. We got an estimate to fix and to replace the switch, it will cost over $300. $240 for the switch plus labor. I might as well buy a new hood for that money. I am very disappointed in this product. For what I paid for it, I should not be incurring such a costly repair so soon.
fume hood for new home
from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, United States
This was installed upon move-in at our home. I like the multiple features, however the top of the fume hood is opposite grain of the bottom, and makes it look funny.
