273003 30" Downdraft Hood with 500 CFM, in Stainless Steel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hide away exhaust fan This item was exactly what I wanted. Stylish and futuristic while not compromising effectiveness. The telescoping fan works smoothly and quietly, and the fact that the blower is inclusive in this unit saved big dollars and installation work. It i not for the the novice do-it-yourselfer though. A proficiency in using tools, cutting and fitting a unit in place is a must. I recommend the average homeowner should probably hire a professional installer. But if like me you've installed dishwasher, windows, toilets, trash compactors and you want a rewarding and above average challenge, then go for it. My wife initially wanted an overhead exhaust and hood, but is very pleased I talked her into going with this over our island so as not to disturb the open feel of our kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vent for the price I really like the way this vent works - I didnt give it perfect scores for two reasons - I was putting it in where I previously had a downdraft stove - to connect the vent to the previous opening took a lot of creativity. If the vent wasnt so tall or you could place the exhaust on either side, it would be helpful providing more room for installation. the suction is good, not great - I think if you buy the external fan, it prvides more suction, but it also makes the unit more expensive. Overall good, not great. but still worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Broan downdraft ventilation system I had model 273003 for twenty years in my house. It is an outstanding product. I never had to have anything repaired on it. My cooktop was on an island and I did not want an overhead hood type exhaust. We are currently building a new home and I am definitely having the same system installed. Great Product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo Braun! I purchased this product for our kitchen remodel. My cooktop is on an island so it was either something like this or choose from a limited number of cooktops with built-in downdrafts. I opted for the telescopic downdraft to give me more cooktops from which to choose. I chose Braun because reviews for this product were excellent on this and other websites. Appliances Connection got my business because they had the best price and because I'd had a positive experience when I replaced my oven 18 months ago. So far, so good. I've only used it a couple of times, but it works great. Noisy on high, but no more than my old built into cooktop downdraft. Anything that has to suck odors and smoke out of the air is going to make some noise. I also purchased the cover in black so that it matches my cooktop. Happy with that too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good idea; some work needs doing on the implementation I do really like my Downdraft. I have no other way of getting rid of cooking smoke, etc. My one big complaint: You can't clean it below the filters. I'm sure there is stuff that drips down the sides of it, but I can't get to any of it to clean it. I think, over time, it will build up and smell, as well as attract bugs. That's a real flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with it's performance! I had ordered a different brand originally which cost about $200 more and had to return it two times because it was the wrong color and then the wrong size. This was a real pain and so I got fed up and looked around I found this one and not only was it a lot less money it had better efficiency and more power! And it came the first time the right size and color!! I Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. We installed the 500 CFM Downdraft behind a 30 inch slide in gas range, we were very happy that it was so easy. You'll love it as much as we do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and features My wife and I are very impressed with the quality of this product. It is stylish, operationally flawless and feature-laden.
