Range hood recommendation
I currently have a cooktop with downdraft and it's horrible. Planning to add an undercabinet range hood and looking for some recommendations. I don't have a fixed budget but hoping to find something nice for around $1000. It needs to be at least 600 CFM and have to the capability to be vented from back.
I think vent-a-hood fits nicely in my price range but found mixed reviews on it. Some folks think it's too hard to clean and technology behind it is over-rated.
Also, appreciate some pointers on places to buy in San Francisco Bay area.
