Essence 36 in. Convertible Range Hood in Stainless Steel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang For Your Hard Earned Buck I am not sure why this is not sold in the store, it is very clean and sleek and would likely sell like hotcakes at this price point. I was very disappointed in the selection at Home Depot and Lowes and found this by browsing just like you who are reading this did. It is just beautiful installed, the lites are perfect and really brighten up the cooktop, they do make some heat though since they are Halogen, but there are two settings. The fan is pretty quiet even at high speed. There is a $60 more expensive version of this with a dual inlet blower and only two screens that might work a little better, but it isn't as attractive. I would agree about the switches being a bit stiff and clunky but they work well. If I were to complain, it would mostly be that the exhaust adapter is plastic and that the fan is not easily removable for service like my 50 year old stainless Nutone was. I did have a hard time turning both of the lights in their sockets after inserting them. I had to disassemble one of them to cycle the light in the socket a few times to get it to turn. It worked great after that. This is the first set of halogens I have had like this. If you are having an issue with the exhaust, your fan is working and isn't exhausting, maybe you installed the exhaust damper upside down, it would be an easy to make honest mistake...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price Overall, a very good unit. It was easy to install. The only drawback is the light and fan swithces. They are very hard to operate. If it was only one switch, I would think it was just a bad switch. But, both are very hard to change positions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is exactley what I was looking for This product was perfect for my application. I needed a hood that had the controls underneath and it is very powerful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile product for a kitchen remodel or refresh. The Essence 36" is elegant, clean and simple in its design; it is well worth considering for a kitchen remodel, or refresh. It has no extraneous markings, or buttons to impede its overall look. It's reasonably quiet and efficient. Factoring style and performance, it's a solid addition to your kitchen's appliances.
