Harrietta Gauthier Range Hood January 28, 2019 13:01:24
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.
The KB36 Wall Hood requires 110v/60Hz to work with an output of 1290 cubic meter per hour or 760 cubic feet per minute. The interior workings of the range feature 4-speed touch sensitive electronic filters. To make your cooking easier, the hood features nice and bright two 20w tilting halogen lights that illuminate the cook-top. A strong feature of this unit is the ZLine’s Baffle Filters. These filters will purify the air by removing smoke and grease. The great performance of the KB-36 is a function of its 760CFM four-speed motor featuring a timer and an automatic shutoff capability. The unit measures 36 inches x 19.7 inches x 10.5 inches.
