Zephyr or Best for Wolf AG?
Looking for a hood to go over a Wolf AG 36" with 4 burners and a griddle (used mostly for pancakes and breakfast fare). Cooking style is light - not too much stir frying. Mostly simple meals, heavier on the baking side. I priced out the Modernaire and they are simply a budget buster so am now considering Best and Zephyr. These models have lower CFM's
Appliance sales rep said that if I am not going with a higher CFM unit, then I should aim for:
1. deep as possible to reach front burners
2. set it as low as possible
3. turn on the hood 15 minutes before starting to cook
4. aim for 8" ducting
So I am down to these:
Zephyr Venezia 42" - This one is 24" deep and has an 8" duct. 715 CFM priced at about $1450
Best 42" - 22" deep and has a 6" duct. 600 CFM priced at about $1000
Leaning toward the Zephyr. Anyone have experience with the Venezia?
