Customer Reviews

Allure III Series 42 in. Convertible Range Hood in Stainless Steel is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This range hood is not worth the price paid. The overall appearance is great, but the product is not worth near the money spent on it. I would say it would be, if the price was a Benjamin and a half lower. The low light setting that they describe as being suitable for a "night light", flickers as if the voltage is not regulated well enough to maintain a steady light. Lastly, while the exhaust fan will blow/suck out any smoke produced while cooking, the range hood lights vibrate because the fan is very strong, and the light fixtures themselves are not secured well enough to prevent it from happening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from seriously disappointing - poor vapor capture I thought I was buying a really good outside-vent range hood, with high CFM rating, etc. To my shock, even at the turbo fan setting, this only captured maybe 40% of the steam coming from boiling pots of water on the front burners, if that much. I had a Jenn-Air downdraft 30-year-old range that actually captured more. And I had been really looking forward to an over-range hood that would be much better. Now I see that Consumer Reports rated this hood badly for capturing "smoke". Well, they sure got that right. It's going back. Very frustrating. Will have to get a range hood that really DOES work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fan noisier then expected but works well the fan is louder then i expected on higher speeds works well the greese screens are not held in place very well. expected a little better quality for the cost. ordered on line because of 42 inch model not in stores fast delivery and undamaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Power In our new kitchen remodel, we chose this product again because it is the best, most powerful range hood for a built in grill on your range. The 42" covers the grill in the middle and two flat top burners on each side of the grill. It is easy to clean and even tells you when to clean it.
