Perfetto is fitted with two high-performance mesh filers that deliver superior filtration. It features a convertible system for vented or ventless (ducted or non-ducted) recirculation. You are required to buy carbon charcoal filters to work with ductless (ventless) configurations. The unit measures 29.5 inches W x 18.5-inches L x 42-inches H. You will love the hood’s stunning European Italian design. It is a super slim fanhood that will fit your kitchen or bathroom nicely giving it a facelift. The unit is so easy to install especially with the included do-it-yourself kit. The device is also very easy to clean because the filters are dishwasher safe.
While this is a lower end CFM capability, this range hood is a great budget buy and many users like that it does not require specialized or expensive light bulbs. Instead, the light operates using standard 75 watt bulbs. For a convertible range hood with more power than a budget model, choose the Broan QS1 with 220 CFM. Available in five color options, including the stainless-steel range hood on our list, this unit is versatile and will meet the needs of many kitchen configurations.
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.
From the look, you can be sure you are getting the best kitchen range hood. The first feature that will strike you is the slim-saving design. It will save you space yet deliver you with the greatest performance. For the same reason, you can use the range hood in apartments as well as condos. Although ducted, you can easily convert the Cosmo Under Cabinet Range Hood to the ductless hood by buying an activated charcoal. The carbon filter kit optional but you can buy it when buying the range hood. The ductless option is great for back or top venting. This is because you can install the range hood both under the cabinet and against the wall.
For a powerful and efficient under cabinet range hood, our top pick is the BV High Airflow Ducted Range Hood. Thanks to a unique slanted design and high CFM, this ducted range can keep the air circulated even with heavy smoke or high heat. This BV range hood is capable of up to 800 CFM thanks to dual motors. It has three fan speeds, with simple push-button controls that make operation easy. The slanted housing of this model allows for better air flow over the entire cooking range. On the underside of the housing, you’ll find stainless-steel baffles and a removable oil filter that are easy to remove and clean.
A protective lamp lens is fitted on the range hood to distribute light uniformly over your cook-top. For easy operation, the unit has control switches to help with fan speed adjustment as well as light activation. These features make the unit easy to use and maintain. The Broan 413004 is one of the most economical range hoods currently in the market. It is 30 inches and will fit into your kitchen well and even give it a makeover. Its great performance can be attributed to Broan’s exclusive Microtek technology to filter airborne cooling pollutants and contaminants.
