Antibacterial Filters: The aluminum filter included with this range hood is treated with a dishwasher-safe antimicrobial coating that safely inhibits harmful bacteria from forming within the filter unit. This helps maintain a high level of cleanliness both within the filter unit itself as well as the interior of the range hood while also preventing discoloration and ensuring long lasting functionality.

Broan QP430 Reviews

Overall an excellent productInstallation instructions are very poor. This makes for a difficult install, primarly with the mounting and electrical connections. Once installed
it works great.

Much quieter and great featuresI 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 VentilationThe 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.

Only half of a hoodSave your money and go with a different brand. There is only one blower; If you cook on the other side, this hood is useless.

hard to useThe 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 blowerI 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.

Overall A Good ProductThis 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.
