Can't beat this hood for the price!
Building an outdoor kitchen for our home. Needed a 36" hood to place over our 30" grill. Being 304 stainless I know there will not be an issue, and found Zline has the best selection of 304SS hoods. Found that 32" off the countertop gave the best performance. Its easy to install 2 screws. Controls easy to operate.

    Looks great with nice features
    Easy to install, needed some round ducting and exhaust shield for outside. Finished to ceiling part with the stainless steel crown molding. Left protective paper on until wall work is complete.

          Perfect fit
          After searching For around three weeks finally found the Range Hood Store online and within a heart bit I was able to find the right hood for my range. I’m glad with the product and is doing the job right for the purpose it’s designed.

            It's everything I thought it would be.
            I love it. I did a good amount of research before deciding on this ZLine model. I even called a few appliance dealers to ask their opinion. I like a lot of features about this hood vent, but one detail that I think regularly gets overlooked is that the lights are in the back. This is great! If the lights were on the front, then your arms would cast a shadow over your food. The only think I didn't like about it is the extension vent pipe that it came with. It's cheap. I mounted the hood on the wall and then had an HVAC guy properly vent it outside. He installed a proper "chimney". Other than that, I love this thing.

            Ordered a Island Range Hood in Black Stainless and it is absolutely beautiful!! Actually had the first one come in damaged and Zline got a replacement out immediately. Couldn't be happier!! Great product and even better Customer Service.

            Great Fan!!
            I have put this hood in the last five kitchens I have done. Customers love them. Usually pair them with the optional crown trim which makes a great finishing touch. I actually own one myself and it has worked flawlessly for the last 4 years!!

            Exceptional construction !!!!
            I recently bought the z line KB 30 from the range hood store they seem to have the better price that I found package came very swiftly 2 days one of the best packing jobs I've ever seen on anything plastic supports heavy duty foam an extra thick cardboard inside also the exhaust vent and accessories were wrapped and in their own blanket also the exhaust vent and accessories have a thick plastic peel off coating to protect them from further scratches and dents I've seen other exhaust vents that were very thin material this is heavy duty material very strong the best I've seen z-line you got a good thing going there exhaust vent and accessories arrived perfect condition no scratches no dents it comes with a plug-in already attached I was ready for installation so I hung it on the wall plugged it in the lights have two stages medium and bright I would say and the exhaust has four settings for the fan very powerful but yet even on high the sound is acceptable there will be no problem removing any type of steam or smoke out of your kitchen with this model very powerful motor more than completely satisfied with this product thanks z line keep up the good work!!!!!!!

              Range Hood
              I bought this a few weeks ago. It is installed and working great. I especially appreciate the sales person that I spoke with on the telephone. She was a huge help in making my decision.

              Modern Minimal Style
              I decided on the 36 In. Wall Mount Range Hood In Black Stainless Steel (Bsken-36) to go above my 30 in range (SO GLAD I GOT THE WIDER HOOD). The hood itself is perfect for the design of my clean line kitchen. It is not too showy 9as to take away from my soapstone counter) and also not your typical boring range hood. I love that the led lights have a dim option and that they are movable! Mandy with TheRangeHoodStore customer service was very patient and helpful in my quest to find a hood to fit with my soffit (only 74 inches of clearance from the ground). After much trial and error, we figured out the short kit addition would be the only way to go. That said, this model does not have matching molding and it turns out my soffit was not built square. My contractor and I will have to do some creative problem solving to hide this. Seems someone along this whole process would have considered that? Anyway, I selected a ZLINE hood due to the lifetime motor warranty. I was shipped 3 damaged or cosmetically challenged hoods.....and finally decided to keep the 3rd for a discount as I was tired of trips to fedex. There seems to be a need for better quality control and better communication with staff as to what would be necessary to install (we needed more clearance than what was mentioned). Also, I was not happy that the short kit cost me extra money and that I was not able to substitute it for the regular 16 inch chimney included. Now I have a $50 chimney section that will be unused. Seems so wasteful. The kitchen is not finished yet but I wanted to post a review because pictures of real life are so much for helpful when making decisions. Its a decent low noise level at 1, but anything above that and it would be hard to hold a conversation close to the stove. I dont mind, as the hood has a purpose to serve!

                Amazing Vent Hood!!!
                Its been almost 4 weeks since we bought this vent hood thru The Range Hood Store online. The fit & finish is beyond words, we opted to be unfinished since we were not sure what color we wanted our cabinets painted at the time we ordered the vent hood. The craftsmanship on the engraving was amazing!!! We just finished our kitchen remodel this past weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with hood. Very minimal sanding as it was pretty much ready for 1quart of primer & 1 quart of grey satin paint. Other than installing new ducting thru the attic and adding a roof vent the installation of the vent hood was pretty easy. Would highly recommend this product for any DIY project, plus save yourself some money & paint it yourself.

                Quiet and Elegant, but Low-Quality Stainless Steel
                The hood came packaged nicely with extra light bulbs and was very easy to install. We like how quiet the fan operates and it is nice sleek appearance. But there is a problem: the upper conical section and the duct cover section are made of very low stainless steel (SS). It is nearly impossible to clean it despite using high-quality SS cleaners. Our other SS appliances clean beautifully with the same cleaners, but not this KB-36 wall range hood!

                  Amazingly easy to install
                  When our house was struck by lightning and caught fire a few months ago we decided it was the perfect time to remodel our kitchen. I chose this Zline range hood because it was the only one that I could find that was aesthetically pleasing to my eye and it matches my whirlpool black stainless appliances perfectly. The fan runs so much quieter than our old hood even on speed four. Our big move in date is coming in four days so I’m very excited to finally be able to be home again and enjoy my newly modeled kitchen complete with the Zline contemporary style range hood.

                    white wood range hood looks fabulous
                    We needed a ductless range hood for our kitchen redo. The 30" white range hood is perfect, and paintable if another owner in the future wants to change it up. Since the surface is flat and not embossed, we plan on finding a static decal --maybe a fleur-de-lis-- to give it a pinpoint focus. No matter how the finish the appliances may change, the range hood will always match. We purchased the vented crown molding to eliminate the need for ductwork. And installation was easy so that our handyman could do it--the motor was already installed--just three pieces to hang. It is the crowning glory of our kitchen!

                      We remodeled 2 years ago and did not put in the hood for money reasons. We regretted it ever since and we finally got the hood up and running. Looks Great and works great!
