Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

You can duct it vertically or horizontally 3.25″ x 10″, a vertical 7″ round duct, or non-ducted. Plus, it comes with a built-in 7-inch adapter for convenient installation. Apart from that, an aluminum grease filter effectively removes smoke, oil, and grease from your kitchen. Similar to many other mesh filters, you can also wash this filter inside the dishwasher.
We really liked its externally vented, 7-inch round vertical duct attachment. It’s easy to operate and quite efficient. Speaking of efficiency, we have to talk about the product’s rocker switch that adjusts both the fan and light setting. Its dual-fan speed tackles both heavy and mild smoke and simplifies the venting job.

What reviewers didn't like

Relatively noisy.
We felt the product’s design could’ve been much better, given how its price is slightly on the steeper side. Moreover, it does not come with an in-built damper, and you must purchase that.
