30" Under Cabinet 440 CFM Range Hood with Two Speed Rocker Controls
Looks Great Runs Great
Broan RP 130
Nice finished look with strong (twin) air removal capability. Dual fans kick into high when sensor detects build up of heat (steam). Dual halogen lights provides soft light for effect and strong light for cooking. Easy removal of filters for cleaning. Fairly easy to install, may have to tweak duct work. See picture.
Great customer service.

Solid Sturdy Fan that Looks Great!
This is a great fan that has a very professional look to it. It is made of very sturdy stainless steel with clean lines, hidden controls, and no brand name affixed to the outside. I like the rocker switches more so than a knob that gives numerous variable speeds. It looks great in my kitchen and it was the right height to meet code with my new gas stove. The only issue is if you have 15 inch deep cabinets, as I do, all fans are made for 12 inch cabinets. You need to get a 3 inch metal covering fabricated for the space between the wall and the back of the fan. I wish Broan or someone else would make something like this to order so the contractor wouldn't have to special order.

A surprisingly good mid-level fan. Reasonably quick install, nice fit and finish, and the twin squirrel cages really move a lot of air on the high speed, but are quiet enough on the low speed for frequent use. The only thing I don't like is being stuck with MR16 halogen bulbs.

We bought this Broan fan to use in the renovation of our 1911 kitchen. The fact that the controls were not on the front of the fan was of the utmost importance, since we encased the fan in wood. The fan could be a little quieter, but it pulls odors out of the kitchen nicely. Love the two-level lights, though they were a little hard to put in...not much room around them to hold on to the lights while installing. I'd give it 8 on a 10-point scale.

Broan 30" Range Hood rp130
My new Broan 30" Range Hood rp130 was shipped very quickly and arrived in excellent condition. With two people it's very easy to install. I took pictures of my old vent hood wiring connections and it made it much easier installing the new vent hood. The new Broan looks great and i'm very satisfied with my purchase.
