hood advice

melkel31April 2, 2014

I posted this on the kitchen forum but then realized this may be a better place to post?? :) (I am new to GW)... Anyway, we are remodeling and putting in a 30" commercial style KA gas range and need a 30" hood. We prefer to get an under the cabinet style bc of space- need cabinets above. any recommendations are much appreciated! BTW wanting to keep it economical and not spend a whole lot of money on a hood - function is important but spending a ton of $$$ on remodel - if it works well and is inexpensive that's good too! ;)

Broan Elite E64000 Series E6430SS $609

Kobe SQ Series CH2230SQ $700

Both give you decent though not ideal capture area.

Kobe gives you a little more power and quiet.

I know people in kitchens forum are recommending generic Chinese hoods with good specs. I would not. Expensive products from China from a company with a long track record for quality yes. Chinese products at the dollar store maybe. Expensive products from relatively new Chinese company NO.

Even with an under cabinet hood you may have unusable cabinet space depending on how you vent the hood.

If you have the flexibility, you should go with the 36" hood width for your 30 inch "commercial style" gas range. I did that, even for my 30" induction range. For the Broan above, the difference is only $20.

I have the E6036SS Broan, with a 600cfm roof mounted remote blower, and a duct silencer (muffler) in line. Total came to about $1050; the blower was off eBay (new) for maybe $175 cheaper than retail. Quiet, works okay.
