Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this!!! My husband and I built a brand new house and had custome cabinets made. I wanted this one because of the button placement. The cheap sticker that goes around the fan and light switch has drawn up and is coming off which leaves it sticky around it!! It doesn't vent well, and I can't find replacement charcoal filters. I'm kinda stuck with it now since the cabinets were designed to go around it!!!! I gave it one star because that's as low as it goes June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful! Really works To be honest, ANY range hood would have been better than the one we had. We chose this one for its features, looks, and price. We are not disappointed. It's quiet and really takes the smoke from the stove straight up. We've always used the light in the hood as a night light and being able to have two levels of light is just great. January 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has excellent quality, and good price. I have used almost a month without any problems. It is very easy to install and use. I installed it by myself. January 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Fan Exposed exterior is seamless with no plastic trim; quieter than most others; everything needed for installation is included (both type dampers, insulating seals, etc.); instructions are better than most. The only major negative is the halogen lights. I would prefer LED. I assume it is an older model. Installation would have been easier with two people. Shipping and PU at Home Depot was quick and efficient. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like the look and it works great I have never paid a lot of attention to a range hood. I updated my kitchen and needed a stainless steel one. I didn't want to see all of the filters and light bulbs from below and thought 2 speeds would be nice. I am pleased. August 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't do it! This is the loudest....worst vent hood that I have every seen or dealt with. It does not exhaust well at all....in fact it basically recirculates the smoke and I would not recommend it to anyone! It is installed properly and I have checked and re-checked everything to no avail! July 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome value Looks and operates like a much more expensive hood. Love the clean stream line look which has all the switches tucked out of sight. The vent screen covers the entire underside of the hood making it very effective, streamline and easy to clean. My only complaint would be the rocker switches which are clunky and stiff to operate, otherwise I would have given it a 5. July 7, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not efficient The Essence Rhood looks great , in fact I bought it twice despite the fact that the first time I bought it the same month I fixed it the vent stopped work . I took it to the store and exchanged it for another one and after four months the vent stopped working like the previous one. It's over three months so I can't exchange so am stuck with it . The light is still working although it's hard to put it on. October 9, 2014
