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.
Ducted types of hoods are fitted with aluminum filters to trap any grease before odors and smoke are forced outside. Some models may feature stainless steel filters. It is you to decide what works best although the difference may not be big. However, you must remember to wash the filter in the dishwasher monthly to ensure filtering efficiency. In case your cooking involves a significant amount of grease (such as wok cooking or frying) then you should wash the filters more often. Ductless hoods usually use charcoal filters to remove grease, odors, and smoke. Unlike aluminum or stainless filters of the duct types of the range hoods, the charcoal filters are not washable. To serve you effectively, you will have to replace them monthly.
The SV218B2-30 has a six-speed fan, which is more speed options than many competitors. At top speed, it has airflow speeds of 900 CFM. This is top capacity for residential range hoods available on the market today. Other standout capabilities include a timer function, a 15-minute auto-shutoff option and a reminder to clean the unit after every 30 hours of use. The dual-chamber motor also is designed to dampen noise and keeps fan noise between 25dB and 56dB. The under-hood lighting is halogen, and located to the rear of the hood. It doesn’t offer as much illumination on the cooking surface as some range hoods.
The filtration unit consists of high-quality stainless steel baffle filters capable of removing all smoke, grease, and odor from coming from your kitchen cookstoves or rice cooker. There is also an oil tray made of high-quality stainless steel. The filter and the tray are dishwasher safe. The full body of the hood is constructed of 18-gauge high-quality stainless steel. The unit will serve you for years to come.
