Chimney Range Hood - 36" - 350 CFM - Stainless Steel is rated
Rated 3 out of
Warning to those with 9 foot ceilings!!!
Beware that an extension kit will be required for a 9 foot ceiling despite GE's write up. Typical mounting height is 30" above the cooktop however the components as included will only allow an installation to a max of 38" which is not ideal. The kit required is KIT0368 and is available at an exaggerated cost of $189! Shame on GE for not making the range hood capable of being installed out of the box without spending extra money. Also there is a soft cost to have the extension kit cut since it comes at 36.5" so that is extra on top of the $189.
Despite this hiccup, we are quite happy with the range hood look and functionality. GE simply needs to make it so people with 9 foot ceilings don't have to spend $300 more just to make it fit!
I have rated this a poor value due to the additional costs we had to incur.
