2nd Place: “Meet my 30 yr old range hood. What once was white is no longer! This puppy is a house original and leaks grease over the stove every time i use it. In desperate need of a #zephyrupgrade #olderthanme#houseoriginal” -Audessa (952 votes)
Runner Up #1: “See that old stainless steel thing in the ceiling, top upper left? That’s the original range fan, circa late 1940s. You ask, what good does it do? Good question! Hardly any good at all, if any.” -Dusan (932 votes)

Runner Up #3: “Extremely plain and boring, total snoozefest! I need an upgrade.” -Linda (547 votes)
Runner Up #4: “My house was built in 1956 and I really think this stove hood has been in place since that time. No matter how much I scrub, it will not come clean. As you can see, it has even been on fire! Yikes!” – Karen (462 votes)
Runner Up 5: “This is my new remodeled kitchen (still have to do backsplash tiles), I would love relegate the microwave to the garage for a #ZephyrUpgrade – they can make their popcorn there!!!” – Kathy (397 votes)
