Vent hood for 36" BS RNB

jonstewart1979March 15, 2014

I purchased a 36" bluestar rnb for our kitchen remodel and am now in process of trying to find the most effective cheap range hood for it. I am considering the Costco Ancona and the sears Akdy 1200cfm. Anyone have experience with either?

Neither specifies where they are made so both are probably made by Chinese contractor.

Both are 18 gauge SS without mentioning SS grade so assume 430.

In the Chimney Style AKDY is 23.6" deep while Ancona is 20.5"

AKDY is 1200 cfm similar Ancona is 900 cmf.

I rather deal with Costco returns if I had to but I would go with AKDY because of better specifications.

I am also considering this range. Anyone have other hood recommendations for less than say $1250 with 1000 CFM max and 24" or deeper depth?

We are also trying to figure out hood options for this range. One sales guy suggested a "Best" Hood (brand). I wonder if anyone here has experience with this brand?

I'm considering this one:

for Canadian market
Spagna Vetro PS09-36
made in China
36" wide x 24" deep
Airflow (Q/L/M/H) 400CFM / 600CFM / 800CFM / 1000CFM
Noise Level (Q/L/M/H) 1.4Sone(45dB) / 3.5Sone(58dB) / 7.0Sone(68dB) / 8.0Sone(70dB)
designed for 8" duct
19 gauge steel

Spagna Vetro hoods are known as Cavaliere-Euro in USA (made in the same factory).

My next choice up cost-wise is this:
Kobe CH9136SQB-1 36"

If you look in my clippings you'll see my thread where I got a lot of useful input, but almost no specific product recommendations (except from a satisfied Kobe user, and a salesperson). Range hood selection is brutal!

I'm going with the Kobe RA-094SQB-1 36 inch over a 30 inch DCS in one month time (kitchen remodel). I currently use a kobe undermount, not noisy at all. Very well made.
