Non-standard electric wiring location
By Frustrated home owner
from Ottawa, ON
Comments about KitchenAid 30" Stainless Steel Commercial-Style Series Under-The-Cabinet Wall Hood:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Works well, cheap plastic switch housing cracks
By Liz Miata Racer
from Clarkston, MI
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.

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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
Great and strong

Never seen a vent clear smoke so fast and look so good at the same time. Thanks for a beautiful range hood.

great kitchen hood to keep the smoke and smell outside
from San Mateo, CA, USA
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.
