42" Allure I Series Under Cabinet Range Hood with 110 CFM/1.5 Sones normal speed or 200 CFM at 4.0 Sones high speed, Standard large filters, Two-level light settings with dual halogen lamp design and rocker switch controls
Nice Looking/Good Features
Fairly easy to install, especially since I swapped out matching sizes. Real nice looking hood and very quiet on the low speed. The high speed is a little loud, but seldom is needed since the low speed is sufficient under normal cooking conditions. The two settings on the light switch is a very nice feature to have. One thing I should point out that I was not aware of until it arrived, the back of the hood is unfinished. In my installation the back is visible (under cabinets in a coffee bar setting), so I will need to install a piece of wood on the back side to "finish" it. No big deal, but something someone else may want to know.

Excellent quality, at an affordable price.
My experience (from the ordering, to the receiving and to the installation) with the Broan QS142 Allure 42" under cabinet range hood, could not have been any better. Its quality and appearance is excellent, at a very affordable price. It has really enhanced the look of our kitchen area.

Efficient Range Hood
Simple rocker type 2 position switches, good lighting position and highly efficient but very quiet exhaust fan. There are much more expensive units with noisier or less exhaust capabilities. The Allure is a simple but good looking unit which is well designed and built. I suggest that the Broan #BP87 7" Damper be offered as an option for buyers with vertical 7" exhaust vents.

Really good product
Originally shipped product had been damaged in shipment. Return and reship was handled so professionally and very quickly. New product is more than expected in value and appearance.

great value and a fine product
This vent looks great, has excellent lighting and good venting. The filters come out easily and I really like the two speed fan and two level lighting.

Better than expected
My wife and I recently bought all stainless appliances and shopped around for a stainless vent to replace our white one and couldn't find a 48 inch model at any of the local big box retailers. I went to the web and found what we needed on the VentingDirect website. Ordering from the web for a product like a vent is problematic because you really can't tell much from the pictures, even the enlarged versions. So we took a leap of faith and ordered from VentingDirect. It proved to be a very good decision. To begin with, the vent hood arrived much more quickly than we expected and it arrived with no blemishes, dents, or scratches. The vent hood is much more attractive than it looked on the website. It is made up heavy duty metal and has a very solid, quality feel to it. The underhood lighting is excellent and gives a nice glow to the kitchen when only the hood lights are on in the kitchen. And most importantly the vent hood works very well and does a very good job of drawing smokes and fumes up the vent. The vent hood is very, very quiet. I also couldn't quite believe the price. The 30 inch and 36 inch vent hoods at the local big box stores was more than $100 more expensive that what we paid VentingDirect for a 48 inch model. I hope we don't need another vent hood anytime soon, but if we did we would definitely order from VentingDirect.

It came early right to our doorstep-literally.It was beautiful ,stylish,and not too difficult to install-I did need one other adult to install it.A screen was bent in the box ,but was easily straightened(in transit someones footprint crushed the box.) Overall a great value and very quiet compared to other models we saw.

Arrived promptly and was easy to install. Not sure if the fan is just not strong enough or we should have installed less than 30" above countertop because the steam appears to blow to front of unit not directly under the filters, but it does eventually dissipate. Noise level is at a minimum. Still satisfied.

This product arrived in perfect condition. The shippers did a good job. The unit installed as pictured in your sales information and adds to the eye appeal of our kitchen. This is the second product we've ordered from Venting Direct and we are well pleased with the both the service and the items.
