The stainless steel version is polished s/s so very shiny and looks a quality polished finish. The sides have a grey protective plastic coating which should be removed at the last minute otherwise you have to remove the hood to get a tidy edge. Strangely the front which is the most visible part has no protective coating?
"Very pleased with my purchase. Collected from store after ordering via internet. Everything went very smoothly, and within an hour of ordering I had the goods and was back home. The item bought is very good and does what's suppose to do. Thanks Screwfix."
"Simple product that is unusually quiet for its performance. It has only been on the wall for a week - but it does a stellar job so far as an extractor hood.
My requirements were that the product had an exhaust option directly back out of the hood (instead of up as most do), that it was quiet - and of course affordable.
I fell for this product as it met all of the above.
It is not the most beautiful of hoods - but if you are after a practical and affordable hood that is a lot less noisy AND has a capacity that is 50 m3/hr bigger than similiar products from various well known high street chains - you wont be dissapointed with this product."
"The hood's easy to instal & relatively inexpensive. However, there are a few drawbacks that need to be flagged up, namely: 1) The finish is poor, inasmuch that the coating on its plastic-coated metal side panels, quickly bubbles and peels. 2) It's noisy & well above the 47dB level quoted... a quick noise check gave over 60dB at its slowest (quietest) speed setting. 3) Its light source is awkwardly located on the left-hand side, giving a strange lopsided hob downlight."
