Very Satisfied - 4.5 Stars
January 2, 2014
First, I'll say I dropped my rating 1/2 star only because I thought the price too high for this item. I mean really...you can buy a range hood of the same basic size with motor, lights, etc for much less. Having said that, the satin "chrome" finish does match my satin nickel glass door fireplace frame very well. I opted for the slightly longer and deeper (6-in vs 4-in) hood and was very glad I did. My wood mantel is 8-in wide and thought that the 4-in would not deflect the heat sufficiently. I was right....the 6-in width works perfectly and actually looks better IMO. Also, my glass door frame actually measured 37-in across so I thought the 36-in long hood would look odd. The 42-in hood overhangs about 2.5 in both sides and looks more finished as I thought it would. Installation was very simple - I just loosened the bolts holding the door frame against the brick face & pulled out approx. 1/4 in or so. Then, simply positioned the new hood between and tightened those bolts back up. Voila, It worked just fine without any screws at all. It looks very nice installed and deflects the heat farther out into the room as planned. My mantel no longer heats up like it did. I had temporarily negated that problem by mounting a satin nickel door bottom protector (8-in x 36-in) onto bottom of my mantel. That also looked good. and worked as a stop-gap measure. I highly recommend getting a longer hood that overhangs the sides if it is not an EXACT fit with your door frame. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Pros:Fit, Finish, Ease of Installation
