The Allure III line of range hoods feature quiet blowers, exceptional ventilation performance and bright lighting of work surfaces. They are 50% quieter than the average range hood. The design features a four speed electronic control with delayed "off" and filter reminder, smooth surfaces, a fully enclosed DuPont Teflon non-stick underside and 2 aluminum professional-style dishwasher-safe filters that provide the easiest clean-up of any range hood. The 3 level dual halogen light system (bulbs not included) is designed to flood your cooking surface with a bright light, the low light setting provides the perfect night light. The centrifugal blower system eliminates smoke and moisture more quietly and effectively than the average hood or over-the-range microwave. Advance Heat Sentry detects excessive heat and adjusts hood speed for proper ventilation. Allure simply performs better than any other hood.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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 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 5 out of 5 by What a great product. It does what it design for. No more fishy smell in my kitchen when I cook my fish!!!! December 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 7, 2011
