Good but not great
We replaced our old noisy slide out rangehood with the Bosch equivalent in June 2020. Having already purchased a Bosch dishwasher, front load washer and fridge we were confident we would receive the same high quality product. Initially the noise level was low but has noticeably increased in 3 months of use, the halogen light has also blown in that time requiring a service call to replace and not void the warranty. Disappointedly Bosch had no record of the service call logged 2 weeks earlier by Appliances Online and a new service call was logged...and again advised of a 2 week response time. Please note the units motor takes up the entire width of the overhead cupboard cavity to the point it was an extremely tight fit between the cupboard hinges, also as mentioned by other reviewer, you need to purchase the Recirculating Kit for non-ducted installation for an additional $59.00 Overall, the after sales service is very disappointing and the overall quality of the rangehood is good but not great,
Purchased in May 2020 at Appliances Online for $359.00.
Does not work
Simply put this rangehood looks the part, it's easy to clean and it doesn't stick out in your face. The issue is it does not work. It is not powerful enough to do anything with taking steam and oil out. I have it on full blast and all it does is make noise. I have had the builder come back and check and it's been installed correctly. Made in Germany does not mean made well.
Purchased in January 2019.
Fantastic extractor fan
This Bosch rangehood is powerful, discreet and is comfortable on the high setting.
"Made in Germany" quality that's reasonably priced. The instructions are clear and installation was straight forward once you take or cut out the bottom shelf in your cabinet.
This model includes the pullout handle (pelmet) which buyers of previous models had to buy seperately. I think in the category of slideout rangehoods it doesn't get much better than this.
