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.
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.
