We have also read several best range hood reviews to help us make helpful shortlist just for you.
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.
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.
The TA-400 from Tatsumaki boasts a quick and efficient 38-second auto clean program that removes hidden grease and keeps the internal fan blades clean. The water reservoir is well-hidden and a quart of water is all that is needed to clear dust, grease, and other debris from the inner chamber. The water is flushed into the removable grease traps for disposal.
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 keypad is capacitive touch, which required a little bit of a learning curve users unfamiliar with the feel of capacitive buttons. Also, the keypad emits a blue light that is not dimmable. This additional glow is a non-issue for many happy Cavaliere users, but it is something to be aware of. This powerful unit has a mid-range price tag, which makes it a great buy if you’re looking for a high-CFM range hood. If you’re looking for a wall-mounted kitchen range hood that will deliver ample power, high-end looks, and convertible venting options, look no further than this model by Kitchen Bath Collection.
