Harrietta Gauthier Range Hood January 26, 2019 07:34:29
A range hood is an important part of any kitchen configuration, and cooks of all capacities appreciate the part it plays in removing smoke and odors from the kitchen. The range hoods that made our list as best buys this year range from efficient, entry-level options to more robust, professional-grade units. Read on to find the range hood that will fit your kitchen and your cooking needs, without compromising on value.
The first considerations when looking for the best range hood to buy are its shape, size, and mounting type. These features have a large bearing on how well the unit will install in your kitchen. The new hood you buy should be as wide as your cooktop or range and about 3-inches longer on both sides. The commonest range hood widths are 30 inches and 36 inches. As a general rule, the new hood you buy should be installed about 20 to 24 inches away from the gas cooktop. Ensure you look at the height dimensions in order to dictate proper mounting.
