great kitchen hood to keep the smoke and smell outside
600 cfm is powerful enough to suck the smoke out from searing meats. It'll suck oil mists. My only warning is the noise. It's quite loud at full blast.

This functions really well and is very powerful. When cooking on our KitchenAid Commercial-Style cooktop it provides excellent ventilation. However, the reason I only give it 3 stars is because there is a cheap plastic housing around the switches that has cracked twice. It cracked within a month of first owning it, and we called tech support and they sent us a new part to install. After installing the new one, it cracked again in the exact same place a week later. I think this may be an issue with the metal expanding and contracting at a different rate as the plastic piece. Anyway, it costs around $60 to replace the piece (which is not covered under the warranty), so I think we are going to just live with the cracks this time. This is the only issue we have had with this product, it if weren't for that this would be a 5 star review. The cracked plastic is purely cosmetic, so if you don't mind looking at it that then go for it. Personally though, I think it makes the unit look kind of cheap and old.

Range hood did not fit
from Barrie, Ontario
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Stainless Steel Commercial-Style Series Under-The-Cabinet Wall Hood:
I bought this beautiful range hood to match my other large appliances from KItchenAid.It does not fit I would have to get my cupboards removed because the range hood sits to low.I called the store for an exchange or a store credit and they said NO.So now it sits in the packaging that it came in which is a shame as I like the range hood.I'll try to sell it or else give it away to someone who can use it.I will never buy from a store that does not exchange or give a store credit especially when its in the original packaging, its not fair.

Prepare for Takeoff
By Carl in Greater DC

Very loud, very hard to shine up, and the buttons are awkwardly placed, making it hard to distinguish lights from fan from fan speed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Loud and functional
By The Baconator
We bought this to go in our new kitchen. It does function well but it is loud. Loud enough that I'm looking to replace the fan or find some solution to it. Cooking with it on low makes conversations possible but stepping it up to medium or high is pretty annoying if you want to talk while cooking. It's annoying even if you don't want to talk. Note: We have a Kitchaid dishwasher KDTE404DSS0 that I believe is a great product. I don't want to just be a basher here.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works great but very noisy.
My wife is Chinese and we needed a powerful fan. We absolutely love the power of this fan, the vents which are easy to clean, the vent work which is also easy to clean and the light. It works great and at 200 CFM it is relatively quiet and at 400 CFM it is ok. However at 600 CFM (high speed) it is very loud and regular speech is not possible and shouting is needed. In fairness, we don't need it on the highest setting often but this is our only real complaint. Other than the noise at the highest setting, it is a great product. I should also note that I would buy it again. If you need the power and cook with oil, it is a great product and easy to install. I note the noise mostly because we didn't know beforehand. On the low and medium setting it is ok for noise though and medium is 25% more powerful than other fans.

Non-standard electric wiring location
By Frustrated home owner
from Ottawa, ON
I purchased this hood fan to replace my builder's grade fan at my new house. My existing hood fan, like most of them on the market, have electric wiring on the right. However, the electric wiring of Kitchenaid hood fan is on the left. To install this Kitchenaid, I would have to hire an electrician to rewire the wiring on the wall. It is an unplesant surprise.

I have had two of these installed - and both of them had issues. The first one was damaged and the second one - the motor doesnt run, and when it runs has a high whining sound, and doesnt seem powerful. The switch was damaged as well

Oven exhaust Hood
from Punta Gorda, FL, United States
This is a good unit except for the fact the light switch and the fan speed Switchoperate very roughly and are not smooth (jerky). Makes you think it is an inferior productevery time one uses it.

This fan removes smoke and fumes quickly and efficiently. Noisy when put on top speed but is expected at the CFMs. Like the filters but plastic switches for fan and lights seem flimsy
