850 CFM 36 Inch Wide Stainless Steel Under Cabinet Range Hood with Halogen Lighting from the Typhoon Collection
Less than 2 years and kaput
We bought this hood under the impression it was high quality and reliable. Those two terms could not be further from the truth. We can't get a response from Zephyr and our hood has a major electrical problem....It is in one of the circuit boards according to our electrician. At any rate...we paid dearly for an upscale hood that didn't even last as long as a Broan or Kenmore would have. We now have a very expensive piece of stainless steel art hanging over our new gas range.

Good Performance then Failed
I purchased a Zephyr Typhoon AK2136 hood on 10/15/07 and had it installed shortly thereafter. After ~2.5 years the electronic board failed costing almost $200 to repair even after the part was covered under warranty. I was under the impression that this range hood was of higher quality, apparently not. Figure in the maintenance cost when making your purchase decision.

We looked for an elegant, powerful stainless steel kitchen hood.Typhoon looked to fit the bill well per prior reviews - our experience in the 2 months we have had so far is very positive. Nice performance - we love the sleek design and all its functions. Looks great too and gets rid of any sort of cooking smell very fast. Selt turn-off option is great. Highly recommend this Zephyr product.Worth the price very much.

This unit creates too much turbulence under the hood and the fumes, heat, smoke from the cooktop spill over the front and are not pulled out the roof vent, especially at the highest fan speed setting. This is a 36" vent hood over a 30" cooktop.

Zephyr Typhoon Vent Hood
Hood is very attractive over the stove. Works great and is fairly quiet. Easy to install. Very happy with the purchase.
