Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kel easy DIY retrofit
replaced a 70's era 36" noisy hood that was hard to keep clean.
Allure gets serious points for clearly anticipating the retrofit market for folks like me because this unit perfectly matched the space left by the old one, the center vent opening and size, and even 2 of the 4 mounting holes. We had installed a tile backsplash to the edge of the old one and this one fit right in the space with a smidgen of clearance.
We found we preferred using flood light LED bulbs instead of the recommended spot light style.
I needed a 3" extension to connect to the previous vent that would have been near impossible to replace without a lot of sawdust. I rented "gutter downspout crimper" piers and cut down a 6" length of aluminum vent pipe (from Home Depot of course...) and re-crimped my own "nozzle" end so any congealing condensate would still drip downhill inside the vent rather than leak out at a joint. made for a very easy install.
bought the more expensive middle model and very glad I did, it is as quiet as I hoped, can have a conversation with the fan on the low setting without really noticing it. My scalp and forehead sure appreciates the sloping and rounding of the exposed edges and corners.
It came well packaged for shipping without any damage and the install instructions were pretty good (wasn't obvious that you had to take it mostly apart to clear all the packaging before installing it but had to go there anyway to hook up the electrical).
Highly recommended as it made my wife very happy! Not sure I would recommend it as a "1st DIY" project because of my existing vent connection challenges but easy for the capable DIYer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Augie How are you going to sell a range hood and not the filters?????
My only complaint is that the FILTERS that I need to swap out every now and then aren't sold at the home depot.
I like the Range Hood, works well. I've had it for 2 years now.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by treekeeperjoe very disappointed/motor failed
I purchased this product with high hopes.

Holiday dinner prep and motor died...maybe 20 hours of use max.
Broan nutone not honor warranty based on date purchased and not time used.
Cheap foreign made parts [motor] old fan lasted 18 years ,this one 18 hours. Pathetic !!!
No recourse....Don`t by Broan/nutone

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Haley123 Excellent purchase!
Shipped and received quickly. Very nice design. Like the 3 speed fan. Quieter than old unit. Also like 3 light levels. Fit perfect in cabinet space over cook top. Wife very happy with it and that's what counts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MagicCookie Quiet, powerful range hood, easy installation
I'm very pleased with this range hood. At the lowest speed, the fan is quiet enough to leave running with guests in the kitchen. High speed is a hurricane for quickly clearing smoke. The middle speed is a nice compromise. Similarly, the three light settings are well chosen, ranging from a night light to a powerful work light; the middle setting is a good general-purpose light.
Installation was easy with clear instructions.
My only small complaint is that you have to buy a 1/2" electrical clamp and two PAR20 light bulbs, so you'll have to make a second trip to the store. I would just as soon have had them included and a few more dollars tacked onto the price.
This range hood is a lot more expensive than the bottom-of-the-line noisy hoods, but I'm glad I spent the extra money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ladycat Great purchase
I love the fact that it is very quiet but still does the job of removing the smoke and moisture from the cooking. It fit our pre-existing hole with very little modification of the previous screw holes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dorisbenn I was surprised that this Hood does not have a flapper to keep out cold air and hot air to escape!
Otherwise, this product is of very good quality and attractive. I like the high/low features for both the fan and the light.
