Very quiet, super powerful suction and the LED light is awesome. Cleaning the filters is super easy, just put them in the dishwasher!
I strongly recommend this unit. It is not expensive when you see (and hear) this unit running.
The stainless steel is easy to clean, and overall the unit is robust.
Excellent and extremely quiet exhaust fan, great led lighting. Purchased because i wanted a quality quiet fan for a new home due to hating the old st george pull out which was extremely noisy. Soft touch button and easy to cleanfilters. Purchased from home clearance centre at a good price.
Bosch DWB09151A rangehood ducted
I am wondering if anyone else has the same problem with this rangehood. I bought this rangehood (quite expensive but it had good reviews on other websites). Just had it installed but there is not enough suction. There is a lot of smoke and food smell all over the house even when we put the suction on level 3 booster 2. It supposed to have 810m3/hour suction. It should be a very powerful rangehood. The installer was confident that there was nothing wrong with the installation.
Bosch sent a local appliances technician last week. He did not give us any clear answers and we haven't heard anything/assessment feedback on what's wrong with it. I have made a few calls to the Bosch nominated warranty repairer but haven't been able to get in touch with the technician. Every time I called, I was told the technician would call me the next day!
I am waiting for Bosch's warranty services to get back to me, as I am sick of calling the repairer.
January 5th 2018 Update: Fantastic rangehood: model installed Bosch DWB09151A rangehood ducted
I thought I would post an update of the rangehood. We installed this with an external duct, which initially had a lot of issues with the suction. After it was fixed, it has been working like a magic. There is very little smell in the house when i do cooking. The filters are very easy to clean - just take them off and put them in the dishwasher. The body of the rangehood is very easy to wipe clean. We have had it for almost two years now and we are quite happy with it. One thing to note is that you need to leave a door or window open so it has some air to suck out (this is in the instructions).
Good rangehood model
After my bad experience with a Bosch DWW09D650 rangehood (see Bosch DWW09D650 / DW09D650A review by Thayyil V) , Ms. Lorraine Ridout from Bosch Customer service offered me a replacement with a Bosch DWW097A50A rangehood. After balking at the offer, I eventually installed a replacement Bosch DWW097A50A which comes with a 139W brushless motor and 3 x 3W LED lights. Bosch paid for the installation of the new rangehood. My family is very pleased with the new rangehood. The brushless motor is extremely quiet, runs well and only consumes 139W. Surprisingly, the 3 X 3 W LED lights are very bright and perfect for cooking. Although I do not know where the motor is made (the plastic shroud states "Made In Germany"), the motor is efficient and very quiet. Bosch provides a 2 year product warranty. I would recommend the DWW097A50A rangehood with a reasonable retail price, great energy efficiency and a quiet efficient operating performance. Ms. Lorraine Ridout from Bosch customer service has been wonderful in following up with the issues which I previously had with Bosch. I do hope that companies like Bosch will keep the core values of manufacturing good reliable products. It is the raison d'être for customer trust and a brand's reputation.
