QuietMode™: Maintaining sanity in a busy kitchen can often be a challenge, and the noise pollution generated by range hood ventilation never helps. This is why Kobe has introduced QuietMode™. Operating at 330 CFM, this feature allows for a reduced sound level of 42 decibels (1.2 sone), allowing you to efficiently vent your kitchen while still being able to hold a conversation. In comparison, most other hoods operate at between six to eight times that sound level at a comparable CFM level, making Kobe range hoods some of the most quietly effective range hoods on the market.
Oil Cup Drainage System: Strategically placed oil cups under each safety-screened impeller collect oil and residue directly from sealed oil tunnels. Easy to clean and maintain, you can remove and clean each oil cup without having to disassemble the range hood.

A great vent upgradeWe replaced a microwave vent combo above our stove with the Kobe vent and stainless back splash. The microwave restricted access to the rear burners on the stove and did not move much air. We selected the Kobe vent because it had a shape that worked well with our cabinet doors for a corner range installation.
Installation of the Kobe vent with stainless back splash requires reasonable fitting and electrical skills, but is within the reach of a home owner. You will spend much more time on it than a contractor and the investment of the extra time will be apparent in the result. It is nice to have those cooking smells vented to the outside properly. In addition to the vent and back splash from VentingDirect, we needed some 6 inch duct, duct sealing tape, construction glue, an electrical cord, and a cord clamp bought from the local hardware store. The vent plugged in where the microwave used to inside the cabinet.

Best thing I got for my Kitchen!!Kobe hood is the best thing we have purchased for our kitchen. I am a chef and I love to entertain, so I enjoy most of my time in my kitchen. I loved this hood as it does not leave any kind of food smell in my kitchen. I use lot of ethenic spices, do lot of frying, sauteing, and the Kobe takes out all the smell from my house. As it is ventened out side. The best part is it is not very noisy and very very easy to clean.

Best home improvement projectI was looking for a range hood to replace my old one. I had a range hood did not work well. The problems I had for the old range hood is it was too noisy and did not remove air all all although I have duct system in place. Whenever I cooked anything the smell of food and oil mist will fill my house for at least half day. So I decided I need a more powerful one. I checked best buy and Sears first to see the models and options I might have. After about two to three weeks search, I realized I can't find a right product from the retail store even I am willing to pay higher price. The best I can find is one with 300 CFM and cost about $600 and that's when I start to search online.
I checked VentingDirect and find Kobe RA3830SQ and purchased through online.
Since I installed the range hood, I no longer smell anything when I am cooking. The product is very quiet and most of time I only use low speed and that's enough power to remove all the smell. I always think I should buy the range hood sooner so I can enjoy cooking more often. I am glad I did have this range hood and recommend you should have one if you cook a lot.

Good productMy family cook alot. I am looking a rangehood that can eliminate all the smell of cooking. I tried to look at Home Depot and Lowes, the strongest that they carried only have around 350PCM. I found this product and this vendor only. Bought it. So far, it the best purchase that my whole family agree about. Strong and quiet. You won't dissatisfy with this product.

Sleek, slim, Quiet on LowIf you're looking for a slim, small & efficient hood, this is it. Can hardly tell it's on when on low setting. I wanted a small stainless hood--not something that atrracted as the centerpiece of the kitchen.
4* stars because the buttons aren't exactly intuitive to use. Also, the highest speed exhausts great, but it's louder than my old clunker hood.

Nice design, great powerful hood.Upon opening the box, I absolutely fell in love with the hood. It's made out of very sturdy (thick) stainless steel. Nothing feels flimsy about it. I love the design: it's sleek, modern, and not bulky at all, though the hood itself is quite heavy.
There was one little problem with the hood: it would not start. It was just dead. Hmmm... That puzzled me, since the hood is a very simple machine (mechanically speaking) and has no electronic components to it. Called to Kobe. Since the hood is under warranty, they immediately dispatched me a technician from a nearby appliance repair store that they have contract with. Unfortunately this dude was not the sharpest needle on a porcupine, and kept telling me it's a capacitor problem (ah? how so???), despite me telling him that it's a simple problem with a switch.
Anyway, Kobe tech support people were smarter and sent him a switch to be replaced. Once it was done, the hood worked perfectly.
It's very powerful, and the quiet mode IS very quiet. I could not believe it, particularly in comparison with my old monster of a hood. I usually use it on an intermediate mode, which I found to be enough for a single burner cooking. If I do some heavy duty cooking on all five burners - then I switch to the powerful mode.
Overall, I am very pleased with the hood, despite rather unfortunate start.

Very QuiteI really love how quite it is and it eliminates the cooking odor and grease. It is worth the purchase. If you're looking for quality this is it.

Fantastic Range HoodThis hood exceeded expectations! Looks great and is super quiet. When it is on low setting, you cannot even hear it. This range on high speed is more quiet than our old hood on low speed!
I highly recommend this hood!
I am interested in this hood. Can it be vented out the side? We have 10' ceilings; will I need an extension? To install as a wall mount it appears I'll need the duct cover? Thanks very much.
A. The KOBE RA3830SQ can be vented out the top or back, but not out the side. To do a wall mount with a 10' ceiling you will need a duct cover extension.
What are the sizes of the duct covers? I live in a house built in 1930 and there is a built in area for the range where the top of that area is lower than the ceiling. I think this hood may work if I can get it to be the correct height. Thanks!
A. The KOBE RA3830SQ is compatible with two different duct covers. The RA1020DC is adjustable from 20-5/8" to 39-5/8" and is for a standard installation. The RA1020RD is adjustable from 20-3/4" to 34-3/4" and is for recirculating installations.
Is this range convertible to 7" exhaust duct work?
A. The KOBE RA3830SQ could be converted with a duct adapter.
Can the Kobe RA3830SQ be outfitted w/a recirculating filter (not outside venting)? Can it be installed directly under a cabinet without the "tube" going up?
A. The KOBE RA3830SQD is the ductless version of that piece and can be installed directly under a cabinet.
I like the looks of this Kobe, but I would like one that is under the counter without the duct cover showing. Can this be done with the RA3830SQ?
A. You will want to look at the RA3830SQD for an undercabinet application.
What would be the proper measurement from the range to the bottom part of the hood that is needed for installation?
A. The KOBE RA3830SQ must be installed 27" to 30" away from the top of your cooktop.
Is this hood approved for out door use?
A. The KOBE RA3830SQ is not recommended for use outdoors.
