Final Say

The Broan 30-inch Two-Speed 4-Way Convertible Hood Range would appear to be a good bargain for the money and the vast majority of reviews for this product are highly favorable. But if you want to use it as a ventless hood, you’ll have to make a trip to Home Depot to buy a charcoal filter as it is not included with the unit or you can just shop online as they’re usually sold in attachments to this product.
