I love my range hood. It is so elegant and pretty.
This is ok. Works fine, looks ok. It is hard to keep it clean all the way to the top. If your kitchen is not 'open' and you dont have open/floating shelves on the sides, dont buy it. Select the other enclosed type. It is very difficult to install it. I had someone doing it for me, ended up costing me a ton to get it installed.
I would recommend this to a friend

Hard to install Hood
Posted . Owned for 2 months when reviewed.
Hard to install. Your wall has to be 100% leveled or the hood chimney will buckle and warp. Two installers tried for multiple hours and it is still buckling. Not their fault. Also , hard to Install between two cabinets .not a lot of room

A:AnswerHello, thank you for your question. The CFM/ Sones Rating for this range hood is as follows: 350/6.1 (Boost Speed), 330/5.4 (High Speed), 160/.9 (Working Speed). We hope this helps! -Chris@Café
A:AnswerHi - Thank you for your interest in our beautiful matte white Café vent hood. If the unit is not going to be vented externally, you do not need to run the duct covers to the ceiling as you won't have duct work to cover. It can be installed as shown in the product image. We hope you choose our Café vent hood as it will make a stunning addition to any kitchen. Kind regards - Vikki@Café
A:AnswerHi! Thanks for asking. This model needs to be hardwired. More details can be found on page 9 of the installation instructions. Also, a recirculation duct is included but a charcoal filter is not. The part number for the charcoal filter is: WB02X24841. Hope this is helpful! If you have other questions, we're always happy to assist. Best wishes. -Michael@Cafe
Thanks so much for reaching out. Most range or cooktop models do not require a ventilation system or have a CFM requirement; however, we recommend checking the local residential codes in your area to see if one is required.
To see if a specific model requires a vent hood system check the model specifications and installation instructions. If you have any additional questions, let us know anytime. Mike@Cafe

A:AnswerHi OMAR, thanks for reaching out to us! We truly appreciate you considering this beautiful chimney hood for your home and are happy to offer you guidance in these questions! While this hood is designed to be vented vertically through the ceiling using a 6" round duct, the venting is convertible! You have the choice to recirculate the exhausting operation to circulate the air through a charcoal filter to remove odors and then discharge the filtered air back into the room. The hood will include the recirculation components needed for this installation except for the accessory JXCF71 Charcoal Filter which will be necessary. For guidance in purchasing this filter, please reach out to GE Appliance Parts by calling 1-877-959-8688 Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. ET, Saturday: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET, or reach out online at any time. We sincerely hope that this information helps to clarify. Please feel free to reach back out to us at any time if you have any additional questions about this installation or would like to learn more about the many amazing features that this hood has to offer. We are always happy to help! -Eliza@Café
