Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood - QP430SS

EVOLUTION 4 has unparalleled lighting thanks to four (4) halogen lamps which is directed where you need it, and four (4) light levels for all-day use. The light levels are smoothly transitioned by theater-style lighting which provides soft level shifts that are easy on the eyes. It also has an ambient night-time sensor which automatically turns the low light on when it becomes dark. This acts as an automatic night-light for safe kitchen visits when dark.

The EVOLUTION 4 is the most powerful under-cabinet hood provided by Broan, that’s why we classify it as a high performance range hood and not just your typical under-cabinet hood. It comes equipped with a precision balanced centrifugal blower that delivers unsurpassed quiet operation and power. On boost setting it moves up to 630 CFM and is ultra-quiet at less than 0.3 sones on working speed! The EVOLUTION 4 has a four-speed blower control to allow for superior power when needed and under all circumstance provides the ultimate in quiet and filtration.

Features:

  • Ultra quiet <0.3 sones at Normal speed, and 4.5 sones at High speed. 7.5 sones at Boost setting.
  • 150 CFM at Normal speed, 470 at High speed, 630 CFM at Boost speed.
  • Easy-to-clean, fully-enclosed non-stick bottom pan.
  • Dishwasher-safe, quick latch, aluminum premium-mesh filters with antimicrobial coating.
  • Soft-touch, sealed green LED display for lighting and blower control with clock/timer, delay-off, and ambient light sensor and sleep mode.
  • Optional remote control with blower speed, lighting and delay on/off control capability (battery included).
  • Four Halogen MR16/GU10 50W lamps (bulbs included).
  • Four-level light settings with theater-style transitions; plus ambient light sensor that automatically turns lighting on at night.
  • Broan Advanced Heat Sentry™ detects excessive heat and adjusts blower speed for proper ventilation.
  • Compatible with optional make-up air damper accessory.

      Pros: -Very high CFM and very low sones for an undercabinet unit-Superior performance. Pulls air from entire cooktop, including front. -Sleek modern design with clean lines. Spectacular lighting-Easy to clean inside of unit and fan itself. Large sturdy filters.-Somewhat easy to install for a handy person. HVI certified.Cons-Max 630 CFM thru horizontal duct only. Up to 27% reduction thru verticals.-Cable clamp for electrical wire not supplied; awkward to install one-Made in China, not in America as Broan's homepage would infer. I was looking for an undercabinet fan with a maximum of at least 400 CFM for a 40,000 BTU range. I learned you should have a minimum of 1 CFM for every 100 BTUs from all burners for commercial cooking. For a conventional range or cooktop you need 200-400 CFMs for heavy cooking. But many low-priced consumer hoods at the home stores top-out at around 280 CFM, which is simply not enough even for an average size range. The QP4 moves much more air (up to 630 CFM) without having to jump up to the professional units. [...]. Once installed, it was everything I expected; beautiful styling with many levels of power and illumination. It exhausts through an Air King 8" roof cap. Now there are no more cooking odors and no grease droplets on the appliances from a non-ducted hood. I tested it by burning butter in a super-hot iron skillet. On the high setting, the smoke went right up, there was absolutely no smell and the smoke alarm was silent! It also clears out stray kitchen odors, like microwave popcorn fumes. Finally, we can cook in the summer without the central AC having to battle trapped heat.The boost setting is extremely strong (570 CFM for my installation) and the sound level, though high, is not offensive at all. The low setting is quiet enough, but not "ultra quiet" due a low motor rumble (note: this may be an issue only with my unit. If so, Broan confirmed it would be covered under the warranty). I also like the Heat Sentry, which temporarily raises fan speed if it senses that heat levels are too high for your current fan speed. Overall, a great product! We're more than satisfied.Here are the CFM ratings for ducting options as certified by the HVI:Low, Med, High, Boost150, 290, 470, 630 -horizontal duct160, 280, 430, 570 - vertical duct130, 230, 360, 460 - vertical 7" round duct

      this has great design and looks wonderful in my kitchen but the blower is only on one side. When we tested it with a piece of paper to see if it would hold to the filter, it falls right off.The heat and steam can be felt above the unit. not good in the summer. I was not keen on letting the night light stay on all night and all the buttons are not user friendly. ABT was wonderful with a follow thru on this product design.

        Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

        Bosch dishwasher bottom doesn't line up with kick plates on cabinet on each side. Salesperson asked us to recheck width and height but might have mentioned how far back in the bottom was recessed. All other dishwashers I've had were adjustable to line up with side cabinets at the kick plate.

        Broan stove hood very nice once you learn how to use. call customer service.
        Abt service person very nice but didn't know how to understand manual either. Got very bad information from Broan. I called next day and spoke to someone else who was very helpful. Let manager at Broan know what problem was. Also called Abt to let service person know they had gotten very poor information. Not Abt service person fault at all.

        Much quieter and great features

        Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

        I like the halogen dual brightness setting. The system is much quieter and cleans the air quicker than my old range hood. It is sleek and slim compared to my old clunker.

        Excellent Lighting and Great Ventilation

        By dragons4Mama

        from MetroWest MA

        Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

        The Broan QP430SS does a great job of both venting cooking odors and lighting up the cooktop. We are using it to vent over an induction cooktop. A vent hood with Great (as opposed to adequate) lighting was just as much a priority for me as good, quiet ventilation. The Broan QP430SS has both. The Broan QP430SS does a great job of venting cooking odors, grease, and steam (we do a lot of pan frying and also I cook a lot of soups in the winter). The fan has 3 levels plus a boost. The 2 lower levels are very quiet. High is quieter than the over the range microwave it replaced. Boost is a bit noisy, but typically Boost is only used for short durations. The fan also has an auto-off feature. After pushing the timed-off button, the fan runs for 10 minutes then shuts down. A longer or shorter interval can be set after pushing the auto-off button; the pre-set time can also be changed if you always want a different interval The 4 halogen lights do a great job of illuminating the cooktop. In choosing a vent hood for our kitchen remodel (which was driven by wanting a vent hood that vented better than the over the range microwave-vent combination we had) great lighting was more important to me than the auto-off. Luckily for us the Broan QP430SS has both great lighting and timed-off. There are 3 levels of light plus a night-light. Standard setting is for the nightlight to come on automatically, but we've turned that feature off. (Nightlight was coming on when we felt there was still enough light not to need it -- it's nice that many of the pre-sets can be changed to suit your needs.) There is also a minute timer. The pre-set is for 10 minutes. You use the + and - buttons to change the interval. The pre-set can also be changed if you want a different interval. The 2 metal mesh filters can go in the dishwasher. This unit does not keep time of fan runtime nor does it alert you when it's time to clean the filters -- about the most negative thing I can say about the Broan QP430SS. I didn't rate the Ease of installation because kitchen contractor installed the unit. I don't recall that they had any particular issues. This unit can vent to either rectangular or circular ducting. The stainless steel is not "fingerprint proof" but it's not difficult to clean. We also bought the matching stainless steel backsplash piece to have a nice-looking, easy-to-clean, grout-free backsplash behind the cooktop. Actual size was a fraction of an inch larger than the specs said, which caused the contractor a bit of a hassle; they had to get the stainless steel panel cut down.

        hard to use

        By DB49

        from Santa Fe, NM, USA

        Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

        The product is very hard to use. I had to use the manual to learn how to set the clock, and to turn the lights off so they weren't on all the time. Still have not found out how to turn the fan off. It seems to run literally all the time. After about three hours it will turn off, but then it is usually time to cook again. Very difficult to set the controls. On the plus side, it is a nice-looking unit.

        Beware: it has a single blower

        By swswsw

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

        I cook heavily, with lots of smoke and grease. Even the turbo mode could not efficiently suck out all the cooking smoke. It is a good hood if you cook lightly. If you are a steak lover and like to use pan sear method, then look for something stronger.

            Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

            This range hood does a good job. Our only complaint is that the control panel can be confusing to use, in particular the light function. The light buttons have to pressed in different sequences in order to change the settings. The directions in the manual are also hard to decipher regarding this issue. A more user-friendly/simpler set of controls would have been nice, IMO. Otherwise it's a good quality range that sucks up most of the aromas.

            I am using this product for ~ 7 months now. I am pleased with it, but had two minor issues which force me to not give a 5 star rating 1> It has a automatic light settings that keeps the light on for whole night, unless you forcefully turn it off. It has the clock, why not to set it to turn off after midnight? 2> One of the halogen light bulb went out within 3 months. The replacement can not be found outside. I am yet to try the Broan bulbs (that costs $40 for a singel halogen bulb???? on this website)

            Annoying programming.

            By Supperman

            from Delavan, WI

            Comments about Broan Evolution QP4 Series 30" Stainless Steel Wall Hood:

            Just because a manufacturer can include all the features of a $5 watch, doesn't mean it should. Ours is a vacation home, which means it get used by many different friends & family. It's not possible to set and lock the features. Press the wrong button and it starts a timer that can't be stopped. Don't want the night light? Tough, I bet you can't figure out how to turn it off without getting out the manual everytime. Even just turning off the light or fan can stump most cooks (press & HOLD the on button) Great, quite exhaust fan, but annoying to point of comical.
