Comments:

This hood presents well. I installed it with a Bosch cooktop on my island. A correct installation is key. it requires few adjustments that are not provided in the box. Disappointed by the need to purchase the electric cord. The lip on the back side going over the counter is really too short to cover correctly a granite cut. Suction is not very strong. If you are looking to cook a lot I would recommend to go with a 1200 CFM hood. This one is great looking but not powerful enough.

A Decent Vent But...

Comments:

This vent was installed by a builder. The vent was not anchored properly, so it wobbled when turned on. About one month later it was broken and replaced. The other problem was the air duck connected to the air outlet. The air flow had to make three turns before it went out. The seemed to weaken the sucking power of the vent. I am not sure if this is also the cause of the broken one. It is a decent vent. But, if it is not installed right, problems will appear.

Comments:

Installation was a problem as some screw locations needed to be changed to set the lower tie down bracket on the right. The undercounter brackets needed some work to get them to slide correctly. The riser hood had screens that were designed badly in that a solid 3 inches of suction were blocked by the ss face. I would have installed the filter plates upside down to fully accommodate the riser height.
