Cons:Doesn't remove most smoke or steam due to flawed design
Just had this installed yesterday, cooked my first meal on it, what a huge dissapointment. I'm hoping I can return it.
Fundamentally it doesn't do what a range hood is designed to do. The fans are set very far back and the design of the front does not channel smoke or steam towards the fans but instead away from them.
Properly installed, centered over the stove, on a front burner you end up with about 5% of the smoke being sucked in and the rest just filling the kitchen. On a back burner it's better, however who wants to only cook on the back burner?
It's an extremely poor design which seems to be trying to achieve a look rather than functionality.
The area under the range that can actually suck up smoke or fumes is less than half the underside of the hood, the front half is taken up with lights and wasted space.
Do not buy without looking at one out of the box in a store first and measuring very carefully.
