Review by rschrod
Pros:Reasonably good ventilation if coupled to the right blower
Cons:Impossible to keep clean
This downdraft hood did not come with an integral blower so I connected it to a Broan 800 cfm horizontal blower (10 inch) under the floor. It is used on an island with a GE Induction cooktop. We've had it about a year. It's a clean installation - very low profile and only one button exposed when not in use. It works fairly well in ventilating the cooktop. The section that raises has a very loose fit in the body and there's a 3/4 inch gap when raised between the cooktop and the hood. It's gasketed with a cheap piece of foam that just collects grease and is impossible to clean. This is a very bad design flaw.
