Broan Pro-Style RP Series Under Cabinet Range Hoods feature a 440 CFM, 0.5/7.0 sone high-efficiency dual centrifugal blower with anti-vibration mounts and a heat sentry that automatically turns the blower to high speed when excess heat is detected. The range hood is made of 24-gauge 430 stainless steel and comes in a Brushed Stainless Steel, Black or White finish. The hidden two-speed slide control has a solid state blower memory and a separate on/off switch. Available in 30" and 36" widths, the range hoods are designed for cooktops with up to 45k BTU. Dual halogen lamps add extra light to your cooking area. The range hoods come with dishwasher-safe micromesh aluminum filters as well as a damper and duct connector. An optional recirculation kit is also available. The range hood ships via UPS or FedEx Ground.

Price was right for the product
works as advertised by: D. Souten from: San Anselmo, ca on: July 15, 2009
Product works as advertised and looks nice. Initial order was damaged in shipping, but it was replaced at no cost (shipping or otherwise) with few complications.
(While it is recommended that packages and contents be examined for damage upon delivery, my experience is that FedEx will not wait around while this is done. Apparently this does not affect subsequent claims against them.]

Motor is nice and quiet. Style is simple and goes with most any decor. Lighting is excellent. Both motor and lighting controls are almost concealed and difficult to find.
This says it should be installed so that the bottom is 24-30" above the cooktop. Mine would end up at 23" above, is that ok? - Asked about product BR-RP130SS
Broan states the installation height should be 18" - 24" above the cooktop, so you should be fine.

Does this work for a ductless applaction? - Asked about product BR-RP130SS
No, a recirculation kit is not available for RP1 Series however, there is an optional Non-Ducted Recirculation Kit (BR-NDK35830SS) available for the AP1 Series (increases hood height an additional 2 1/4") which has the same dimensions as RP1 but a more variable knob than the two-speed RP1.
