450 CFM 30 Inch Wide Four-Way Convertible Under Cabinet Range Hood with Halogen Lighting from the Evolution 3 Collection
Grest replacement product
Our "builder Special" range hood died, and as we do most of our cooking on the cooktop, we needed a new range hood ASAP. I looked around and just didn't find anything of quality for a reasonable price until I spotted this one. Buying online saved me $180!!!! Product arrived in just a few days, great condition, quick for our guy to install - and it works wonderfully! Easy to clean, great exhaust function, much quieter than previous cheap product, and now I really have to keep my cooktop clean as the lighting is so much better! Its hard to find a quality ducted range hood in under cabinet 30" specs. This is a terrific one.

This hood looked good in the pictures and even better installed. Installation was a breeze and to look is awesome. All the features work great and the range lighting is top notch.

Fabulous range hood!
We are remodeling our kitchen; our Contractor told us about the Evolution 3 Series Range Hood. He had installed one in his own recent kitchen remodel. We had installed it; the lighting has different brightness push button controls; REALLY lights up the stove surface when on high. The fan works extremely well; the hood itself is stainless, & very attractive. Would definatley recommend; the newest features & the best value for your remodeling money!

I(we) are so impressed with this range hood. We replaced a unit we purchased 25 years ago. Needless to say that technology has come along way over the years. This product is quiet, has enough power to pull cooking odors out, not to mention the great lights. So everything is great, and thank you for making such a terrific product.

I chose this venting range hood as a mid-priced hood. It works well. Very quiet at the 2 lower setting. The controls are not too intuitive, however, one gets used to them. I cook a lot with aromatic spices and this hood seems to do a good job pulling odors out of my relatively small kitchen.

Works well, not as quiet as I thought it would be.
Thi hood is powerful and definitely does the job - love the huge filters that cover the bottom of the fan. Although it has some nifty features (timer, halogen lights, lights that come on automatically when it's dark) I found the fan noisier than I thought it would be at the higher speeds.

I'm pleased with the performance of this vent. It draws well, is reasonably quiet, and I really like the lighting. I bought white, and it is attractive and unobtrusive with my white cabinetry. The filters are easy to install and remove.
In terms of operation, the controls are flat panel electronic "buttons". I find the "buttons" to be a bit small and not intuitive. For instance, it's not obvious which pictures are buttons and which are just pictures. Nor was it obvious how to turn off the lights or fan. I had to read the manual. But once you understand the panel, it's fine.
In terms of installation, you need to know about venting and what you're doing. In my case, the vent was not on an outside wall, and required an elbow (going up and then horizontal about six feet). My contractors thought the documentation could have been more helpful. They ended up forking the main duct to two outside vents in order to get the proper draw. I had a metalworker fabricate a part for this. I recommend ditching the foil ducts that come with the vent, and purchasing solid metal ducts if your configuration allows it; this will eliminate tears which can happen easily.

Looks and works great
Good installation directions (we are homeowners); easy to install; operates well, quiet; has an automatic night light feature that we like. It looks great with my other black appliances. I like the sleek design.

quiet, works great
Very nice unit, just wish the controls were more intuitive.
On low speed you cant even tell it is running. Love the lights. Great buy.

Everything smooth as possible
Ording the fan was easy, came quickly and my wife loves the fan.
