Broan 35" Chimney Style Range Hood E5490SS

Why Kitchens Need Ventilation. Fresh salmon fillets are reason enough. But that's really just a start. Because cooking smoke and greasy build-up are more than unpleasant. They're unhealthy. In fact, cooking churns out airborne contaminants like nothing else in the home can. This concentration of contaminants requires effective ventilation. That's where Broan comes in. As the residential ventilation leader, Broan offers more range hood kitchen ventilating solutions than anyone. From high-performance ducted models, to the most effective non-ducted units ever made. And they're all built to Broan's demanding quality standards. So you can count on them to help keep your kitchen cleaner for years to come. Built-in lighting means you can count on your Broan range hood to keep your kitchen brighter. Some units even include a convenient nightlight feature. There really is a difference with Broan. It's in the details. Broan Elite. The design says professional. The details say perfection. Sophisticated tastes deserve sophisticated styling. That's why Broan created the Broan Elite Series. These range hoods are unique works of art that flawlessly blend style, power and durability. Choosing between them won't be easy. One thing, however, is certain: you're sure to be completely satisfied with the combination of style and power you select. Their commercial-style range hoods feature serious ventilating performance for the serious home chef. They're specifically designed for use with high BTU, commercial-style ranges. They also accommodate the high-capacity demands of residential woks and cooktop grills. And, since true satisfaction and exquisite taste go hand-in-hand, they offer and extensive selection and a wide array of options and colors. The Broan Elite E54000 Series is Elegant symmetry from every angle. Graceful curves and a low-profile design make this island hood at home in any decor.

Awesome
Posted:3/21/14
Pros: beautiful center piece
Cons: none so far
" I little difficult to install because of the size & weight...would recommend hiring a professional, and it definitely takes two people to get it mounted.
This hood has beautiful smooth lines and seems to be really well made.
It's really quiet on the low setting which draws enough air flow for anything we cook.

Clean look,
Posted:12/4/08
Pros: cost vs. other name brands.
" Very clean look. We wanted a low profile unit, something that would not be to overwelming in our moderate sized kitchen.
Needed to modify for a 7'6 ceiling height to maintain a 30" clearance from the top of cooktop to the range hood. No problem. Was helpful to have a third person to help install.
Shipping was prompt, once ordered had the unit in about 7 days out here on the West coast.

As advertised
Posted:5/4/08
" Just installed the unit. Instructions were clear and accurate. Per instructions, it does take 3 people to install the lower 'hood' piece. It moves a ton of air .... to the tune of having to open a window on high. Can barely hear it on low setting. "

Queit and elegant
Posted:1/6/08
" We hung this unit from a support system under an arch between two rooms. We had to cut down the height of the chimney sleeve to shorten up the height. It went perfect and the fan works great. It was as quiet as I had hoped and the 4 halogen lights really light up the stove top. "
