The aluminum filter has only 2 protruding parts while the body of the rangehood has 4 slots. The protruding parts are made out of the very thin aluminum frame, which breaks very easily, for me just after 2 washes. You can easily break that protruding parts by just looking at it. It's of inferior quality. I am sure it's not up to the industry standard. It's so fragile that if you accidentally push the protruding part, it may fold then it breaks.
love the flashing light for cleaning
I have had this product since October 2013, love the flashing light telling me when to clean panels also great to set fan on after for fifteen minutes, also have ducted outside, not going into roof space to make it greasy up there. Found the fan speed was acceptable for use .
Useless exhaust fan Blanco BRU70X
BRU70X thought we were paying for quality exhaust fan, as was recommended by sales person, only to find it is the most useless piece of junk we have ever purchased. Even on full fan the condensation drops from the filters back into the food on the stove. Would not recommend to anyone!!!!

Not at all efficient
Am happy with this product
First rangehood I have ever had, and it seems fine to me.
There are 3 fan settings and I tend to use the highest one, the lower 2 are not as effective. The highest setting is, however, fairly loud - the next one down is a lot quieter, if you are after less noise.
The rangehood can hardly be seen, being set into the bottom of the cupboard above the cooktop, which is what I wanted.
The buttons for operation are easy to use, and the lights are a big help when cooking, too.
I don't have it ducted, the filtered air comes out the top of the cupboard above - the filtering seems to be effective as the expelled air is clear and has not yet marked the ceiling above the exit point (but have only had it in for a month).
Nicely concealed, easy to use, effective
