250 CFM 30 Inch Wide Stainless Steel Under Cabinet Range Hood with Halogen Lighting from the Breeze I Collection
I had my kitchen remodeled years ago, but for some reason, the vent never got replaced. I never used the old, greasy, mismatched, bulky thing because it was so noisy. It bothered me more than I realized.
My 22 year old son came home from college, ordered a new one and installed it so easily! I love it! It's beautiful, clean, and so much quieter than my old one. I love the fact that the light can be bright for cooking or low like a nightlight. Why didn't this get done years ago? it was so easy and makes such a difference for the ease of cooking and beauty of my kitchen.

high quality - low price
I was looking for a replacement for an inexpensive 'open' style hood in a rental property that I own and repair. The old vent hood in the apartment was covered in grease inside and would have taken hours to clean. In addition, it was painted, and some of the paint had worn.
The 'closed', stainless steel unit from Zephyr fit the bill. And the price was right. It arrived swiftly and perfect. The unit was better than expected. Adding the non-vented kit to the Zephyr was a breeze. The Zephyr is about 1 1/2 inches slimmer than the old hood - which is nice too. Great lighting. Altogether another class of hood. Very pleased.

Reasonably Priced - Professional Appearance
I was looking for a range hood that was cost effective, perform well and was aesthetically pleasing. I was limited with the existing space built into the cabinets and this Zephyr was the best option.
I initially was going to add ductwork, so I didn't need the recirculating kit (sold separately). I ended up deciding to recirculate since I rarely use the fan. It only takes four minutes to set the hood up to recirculate, and you can't see the vent in your field of view. I'm really not sure why they don't include it together being that it's two screws and some plastic.
The unit works well and looks attractive. It's very easy to install - you can have it up and running in 20 minutes with two people.

My husband installed the hood this weekend. He is an HVAC contractor and was very impressed by the quality of this product. It looks great with our new cabinetry. I love that it has two levels of lighting, one for cooking and the other to illuminate the kitchen. Ordering was easy and shipping was fast. I highly recommend this product. Thank you!

This seems to be a well-made and easy-to-install range hood. The only disconcerting feature is that the 3 fan speeds have almost undetectable speed differences. In fact at first they were undetectable, but after the motor was replaced under warranty the differences were a bit more noticeable (tho not much). Otherwise, it works well.

good price, working well
The installation was relatively easy. The appearance is sound and all components are working well. We have only been using the unit for a month, but so far so good. It was disappointing not to be able to fasten the unit more securely at the center which produced a slight space between that cabinet and the unit.

A better than average value
A really nice stainless steel hood range - about the only negative is that the set back of the top duct opening does not match 20 year old types 1" set back vs. the older 1 1/2' but time does move on and specs. change. Otherwise was a very straight forward installation that looks 100% better than the old unit

Beautiful but not great
When I received the product the box looked like it had been kicked in on one side,on inspection it seemed that everything was ok except for a venting screen that goes under the vent a hood. I called venting direct and told them of my findings and they said they would send me a new screen. My contractor installed the vent and started it up,worked great! one week later and I realized the vent sounded really loud,it works but is loud,not sure if this is normal.It's a really nice looking vent but not very quiet...

Great addition to the kitchen
This item was purchased for a rental home as a replacement. The tenant did the installation and is very pleased with the look, performance and ease of cleaning. A family member of his is in the remodeling business and had never seen the Zephyr brand and was quite impressed by it also. We will go to build.com for future home improvement needs.

Purchased the under cabinet hood in white. Had looked at the big box stores for product, but they all seemed overpriced and under the quality I like. Saw this one and decided to take a chance without seeing it in person. This is something i do not ordinarily do.I am so glad i did. It makes the big box ones seem like junk. This is a high quality product. It installed easily, works efficiently and effectively. It is also quiet. The lights are bright. Nice product.
