What Customers Are Saying

Customers are pleasantly surprised by the Broan 413004 Economy 30-Inch Two-Speed Non-Ducted Range Hood.  It is receiving outstanding ratings, with most online reviewers awarding this range hood the highest possible rating.  Concerns are small, as there are not very many negative reviews. 

This range hood is inexpensive and no frills.  Many reviewers commented how they were drawn to this product by the price after finding so many range hoods that were 2 to 3 times more expensive.  Fortunately, the lower price does not mean an inferior product.  Only a handful of reviewers thought the fan was loud.  Almost all agreed that this range hood is attractive and easy to install. 

One complaint about this range hood was about the power of the fans.  According to a few reviewers, this range hood is not particularly powerful.  Some barely noticed at all if the system was actually pulling smoke or steam up through the system.  While the fans are not very loud, there might be some trade off in the ability of the fans to draw air up and away from the stovetop.  Otherwise, this range hood is solid.  Customers who chose to review this product online say that it is effective and reliable.  Considering the price, this one might be a tough range hood to beat. 

Pros

  • Reasonably priced
  • Simple to install
  • Attractive stainless steel construction
  • Quiet

Cons

  • Fan not very powerful
  • Does not draw smoke up from the stovetop very well

Recommendation

The Broan 413004 Economy 30-Inch Two-Speed Non-Ducted Range Hood is very highly recommended by customers who reviewed it online.  The product has received an overwhelming number of high ratings and positive reviews.  

This is an economical model.  It is low in price, but not necessarily low in quality.  Not as powerful as the more expensive models, it is strong enough for everyday use.  The fans are not particularly quiet, but they will not chase you out of the house either.  This is simply a basic range hood for people who are redesigning their kitchens with all stainless steel appliances. After shelling out thousands of dollars on a new refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, and range, there is no need to overspend on the range hood.  This simply designed range hood is all you will need.
