"This is a good looking product at a great price. It is relatively easy to install, but would benefit from a template to show the spacing of the screws. I made one up as I was fitting it between cupboards which were exactly 600mm apart, so had to be accurate. Yes you have to buy filters, which should be included, but now it is up and running the wife is pleased with both the looks and performance. What more could you ask for? The staff at Woking were extremely helpful over a small problem with one of the parts."
"Great price, great looks and seems effective. The only gripe and a minor one is the light is not bright enough to light the hob. Will try a brighter bulb which should solve problem and when all is considered this is a very minor issue."
"Very good product at a reasonable price. Was very easy to install using a ducting kit and fits well into the kitchen. The controls are positive and easy to use and the built in light helps to illuminate the cooker hob"
"Looks great and works very well to reduce steam and cooking smells. We have a low ceiling and did not require both sections of the adjustable chimney. Although the instructions were adequate we found it easier to draw a paper template of where the fixing plates & drilling holes should be and transfer that to the tiled wall to avoid drilling errors. You may need stronger fixings than those supplied as the unit is extremely heavy. Once fitted it looks very stylish and is easy to clean. The light could be a bit brighter but it's adequate."
"I bought this to replace a different brand that had packed up, there are a few negative points for what mainly seems a very good product, 1st there are no dimensions given for the chimney in the brochure/online (The dimensions quoted appear to be for the main housing without the glass hood attached), if there had been I would have purchased a different item as the chimney is only 22.5 cm wide, 10cm narrower than my last one, meaning I now have to replace some tiles due to the old fixing points now showing. The noise level is quoted as 55db, when the instruction book actually says 59-62db. Installation is fairly easy, but would be a lot easier with a paper template, also the bottom 2 fixing screws are difficult to do up as they are accessed behind the filter, with the fan being in the way. The lamp is a small low energy unit so does not give the greatest amount of light. Dont know about reliability yet. Due to the good price and quick availability of a replacement I am putting up with the negatives otherwise it would have been returned.
"this is a good value for the money it looks nice has a good powerful motor the lights ok probably put a big wattage in but cant complain compared to other extractors this is definley good value for money and it looks the part"
"I bought this to replace an ageing appliance and found it to be easy to install. It has the appearance of an item of a higher value and has an easy-wipe stainless steel finish. Previous reviews said the light wasn't very bright but I haven't found this to be so, it has a low-energy bulb which takes a little time to fully illuminate but that's the nature of low-energy bulbs. I would recommend this appliance."
"Cheap n cheerful. Looks good, great value for money. was easy enough to put up with 4 screws for main hood and 2 more for chimney. Have not used the external extractor as yet but seems to quiet enough and quite powerful enough for small/medium kitchen."
"Bought this based solely on slim line looks and price, just about pleased with purchase much better in looks than some of the Monstrosities’ that are on offer elsewhere. Unit was easy to fit, wire in and assembly was a simple no brainer. It isnt heavy as others have remarked dont worry about fixings, any decent screw will hold this,looks good and Fits in nicely with the stainless steel appliances we have.
Bad points. Extractor is very noisey at any speed, at high speed you'ed need ear plugs if left on too long. Extraction rate quite poor barely pulls air through, as for the light! forget it ! its not much better than a glow for appearances only. After only 3 washes the Aluminium filter has discoloured badly and I am looking to get a replacement. I cant recomend this based on its perfomance but if you want a good looking hood that is used infrequently then maybe this one is ok. Had I known how badly it was going to perform I might have looked elsewhere but as I said for the price it'll do for now. I didnt use the second Flue as I raised the height so I didnt bang my head when close to the Hob. otherwise you pays your money and takes your chance."
"Have been using this for just over 2 years and suddenly the fan motor stopped working. Since it has only 2 year guarantee Screwfix refused to replace it. Avoid if you want to use it for more than 2 years."
