No perfect product exists. Customers also mentioned a few flaws of it. Here we are going to show you the pros cons of it.
- Quiet: Since QS130ss is designed to be a quieter range hood, it doesn’t produce too much noise, especially on the low setting. One customer told that it was so quiet that she could forget it was running.
- Installation: QS130ss is light weight, which makes its installation easier. If you are a DIYer or have a DIYer in your family, the installation is an easy job.
- Bright light: Quite a few customers complimented on the light effect of QS130ss in their reviews. It is designed with dual lamps and has both high and low switch. On low QS130ss gives you enough illumination even if you turned off the light of your kitchen. On high two lamps are on and brighten the entire stove and surrounding space.
- Fan: The fan speed of QS130ss also has high and low switch. On the low speed the fan is good for cooking vegetables or anything that doesn’t make smoke and it is very quiet. On the high speed it can take in all smoke over the stove but it is a little louder.
- Cleaning: It is a stainless steel model, which means it is easy to clean. And the dishwasher- safe filter makes cleaning a quick and easy job.
- On the low setting the fan isn’t strong enough and can’t suck in the smoke effectively.
- On the high setting it is a little loud.
- The bulbs are non-ducted clean sense filters not included.
- The lamps will give a little more heat because they are halogen lamps.
