Purchased in 2014 from the good guys for our Kitchen. Best feature on this model is the powerful LED lights. They are so bright they light up my Technika cooktop brilliantly, I would say almost as bright as the overhead ceiling downlights. Works well and easy to maintain. Such a great asset.
I love my new rangehood
We purchased this range hood as the supplier allowed us to have flue extension to accommodate our very high ceilings.
We are very happy with our purchase, and it looks great sitting above our Technika stainless steel upright cooker.
The fan is fairly quiet which is nice as we can still watch tv at a normal volume without the range hood fan over powering the tv.
Our previous range hood (Westinghouse) was so noisy that we had to have the tv up so loud and we were all yelling over each other.
The light is bright enough so we can see what we are cooking, we also leave the light on every night to act as a night light in case our kids wonder at night to our room.
The globes still going strong!
Our installer even praised the brand Technika and Bellissimo as one of the quietest range hoods on the market and how easy they are to install compared to others.
This range hood has been a great investment for us.
This has worked fabulously since we purchased back in 2013 with out any issues at all.
The suction capability seems ample enough for our cooking requirements and suits our kitchen design perfectly.
I would recommend to all family and friends.
Looks Good Works Even Better
This range hood looks so beautiful which was the main reason I purchased it.
It has a combination of glass and stainless steel; so it's super easy to clean.
I like the 3 speed fan options so I can control the level of suction required.
The filters are dishwasher safe so I just throw them in the dishwasher once a week which keeps them nice and clean. It's super hard to wash them by hand, especially if there is built up oil, etc.
Works Like It Should
This range hood works just like a range hood should.
It extracts the smoke, smells and steam -even during heavy use.
The unit is somewhat louder than some other models but the extraction rate is better so I am guessing that's why.
The range hood looks very classy and the 3 speed fan gives you control over the extraction level you desire.
I would most definitely recommend this range hood
push buttons have disappeared after 5 years.
Love the product but after two years we had slight problems with the push buttons. They started to sink into the canopy. we then reverted to holding the start stop button as we used it as it was out of warranty. Now the whole push button encasement went through and we have no-way of getting it back out. Will ring the electrician tomorrow.
We had a Technika glass canopy rangehood installed in our new house. We actually upgraded from the standard Technika builders pack to the more expensive glass canopy rangehood. Before 1 year was up the 3rd speed fan button didn't work and now 2 years down the track neither of the lights work and the fan doesn't work at all. I have looked at getting the replacement parts but they are not easily replacable and are quite expensive as you have to buy the whole led light switch component (x2) and the fan switch which works out expensive. I think I'll just get a better quality brand next time as all my Technika appliances have been poor quality!
Worked like a treat till we pressed the button too hard
Our builder installed this range hood when we moved into a new property 6 years ago. Recently the buttons which control the light and fan started to go in rather than engage - I took off the cover and found the problem. I have ordered a new bank of switches and as soon as it arrives it will be fixed in five minutes, OK its a bit noisy but for us it does extract all the smoke and steak even when I burn the toast!
Purchased this nice looking unit in 2009 and while it was quite noisy functioned well but required very regular bulb replacement due to corrosion caused by moisture from cooking steam. After 4 years the bulbs stopped working completely and when I tried to activate the fan control by pushing the buttons they disappeared inside the unit because the holding bracket had broken. I am now trying to find replacement parts for this very disappointing appliance.
Looks good , but a pile a rubbish .
Like a wertheim vaccum cleaner .... avoid ..... looks good but noisy on high fan speeds , lights stopped working , and according to a sparky , will never work again without pulling the thing off the wall to get inside the pile of rubbish . and yes the smoke alarms still seem to scream the house down even on high speeds . glass is a pain to clean . i dont clean a lot ( lazy cook ).
noisy , pain in the butt to change light globes
Technika rebadged Euroart 90cm curved glass canopy
Purchased 19/11/08 , installed December 2009. Our builder installed our rangehood out of plumb and apparently the flue covers in the wrong order. We had 2 years of satisfactory use from our rangehood after which it went completely mad. The rangehood will start and stop of it's own will. It starts and stops as many as 20 times in a minute , at times will not stop manually and the light willnot opperate while it is having one of it;s fits. I would recomend another of rangehood.
