Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigjohn66 very sharp looking range hood
I was looking for a nice but simple stainless range hood for my remodel project and I found it in this range hood. It does not have a large brand name label on the front as my older one did that was unattractive. It has a three speed fan motor which is quiet and very efficient and the lighting is superb, lighting my entire work area. I would recommend this over the entry level range hoods offered.

The unit is fine IF yours isn't damaged. Mine came out of the factory with a dent in the front left corner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PeterH Really nice looking and performing hood.
I pined over the decision to buy a hood and researched for over a month. The Maytag under cabinet hood is really nice looking works very well and is perfect for my 36" gas stove top. I am really glad I did not spend the $800 on another model I was considering. I have it mounted 27" over the stovetop and it works really well. I replaced a underperforming microwave style recirculating vent hood and could not be happier. Pretty noisy on the high setting but I only use that when the cooking has gone wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tanqueray How stupid to require me to provide review title. OK, GREAT BALLS OF FIRE THIS IS GOOD!!
1st hood was scratched on top and it looked like the top fasteners had been installed by a 12 year old with no experience. I returned it to Home Depot and reordered
The second hood arrived in better condition, and much to my surprise, I believe I received an updated version.
Installation is easier due to not having to remove inside braces (vented to outside). Another improvement is the lighting. The light bulbs are now 40 watt instead of 50. See prior review re lighting. The 40 watt bulbs provide very good lighting. I did plug in the old vent in order to check out operation and lighting. Another improvement is that the new hood has three filters whereas the first hood had two filters.
The installation instructions with the second hood have not been fully updated. They are updated for the new light bulbs but still show two filters and give instruction for removing braces so that installation screw holes can be accessed.
Hood is very quiet at speeds one and two Some noise at highest speed, but that isto be expected when moving that much air.
I removed a 36 inch GE profile microwave oven mounted under a cabinet and replaced with this hood and an inexpensive counter microwave. I don't cook with a microwave and the new microwave does just as good a job warming my coffee, etc and defrosting.
Installers had to cut 2x4 down to size due to overhead cabinet bottom supports, etc. Could not use mfg supplied screw holes for installation. Used longer screws and installed adjacent to precut screw holes.
Vented through side wall due to two story house and had to put hole thru filled concrete block A pain in the rear, (and the reason for using installers) but well worth it. No more lingering cooking smells.
Had to spray control buttons with silicone spray to avoid sticking. They now work better and are not as noisy. They could be improved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by neburnoloc Easy installation
After doing my research I decided to order this range hood, I am very happy with it's performance , the medium setting is all I need when cooking, unless I am doing fish or bacon then I use the high setting which is quite powerful , I had to build a frame for it because I was installing it as a wall mount, great product, I would recommend it.

It fit great and looks great, wouldn't have rather had it come in black, but apparently nobody makes one with these dimensions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Antioch Nice clean look, exellent airflow
The controls are simple, just five mechanical push button switches. It is very quiet up until the highest fan setting, at which point it is really moving some air.
It comes with halogen lights that get pretty hot.

This hood has great lights! They are bright without being glaring. The fan speeds are great and operate quietly. My old hood was very noisy this is so quiet I want to turn it on and use it!
