Some users note that the fan is not ultra-quiet, but many agree that for an affordable price, the overall value of this range hood is still excellent. It is only available in a stainless-steel finish, which is the most common finish for wall-mounted range hoods. Choose this hood if you’re looking for a sleek and efficient unit that offers both ducted and ductless operation.
The Broan F40000 series of range hoods provide your indoor environment with fresh air circulation. The F403011 Convertible Range Hood belongs to that series. It is specifically designed to offer installation flexibility with 4-way convertibility. The range hood sets up as 3-1/4-inch by 10-inch ducted opening with either horizontal or vertical ducting. It can also install as 7-inch round vertical ducting or even as non-ducted with air re-circulation. As with other Broan hoods, the F403011 is fitted with a high-quality two-speed fan that will serve you for years without replacement.
This Euro-Style range hood from Golden Vantage offers a high-end look that complements any kitchen island. The range hood is capable of up to 400 CFM, which is suitable for many everyday cooking tasks. The Golden Vantage Euro-Style Island Mount Range Hood has a three-speed fan, controlled by push buttons. The noise level is capped at 65 decibels, which is slightly noisier than some range hoods on our list. However, users find the noise level to be acceptable and not overly disturbing.
Unless you are among the 0.66 percent of the American populations who suffer from Phantosmia (smell hallucinations), any smell coming from your home should be a cause for concern. The commonest source of such smell is the kitchen. It is particularly true if you frequently cook on a high-powered stove. That’s where the best range hoods come in. Range hoods vent the smoke that causes the bad smell. They also trap grease resulting from certain styles of cooking. A good quality range hood is a vital part of any kitchen configuration. It offers the most assured way to remove dangerous smoke and odors from the kitchen.
For an under cabinet range hood with extreme power, look to the XtremeAir Ultra Series Range Hood. This stainless-steel range hood packs up to 900 CFM and can handle even heavy smoke and odors. Home cooks that do a lot of high-heat searing and find themselves battling smoke will appreciate the extraction capabilities of this fan, but even more routine cooking tasks benefit from the low and medium-power fan settings. The noise level for each fan is not noted as being within range of normal expectations.
Since a build-up of grease can affect the efficient operation of a range hood over time, this model makes a great choice for the home cook that wants peak efficiency from a vent fan – without the hassle of regular in-depth manual cleaning. Additionally, this range hood has six speeds of fan operation and is capable of up to 750 CFM. This is very robust operation and will suit the needs of many households. The unit is on the upper-end of the price range for an under cabinet range hood, but it’s features and capabilities still represent a tremendous value.
