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 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.
