Best lighting for exhaust hoods? Halogen, LED, or standard
We are getting a 90 cm (36") Bertazonni cooktop, and would like to get a stainless steel chimney-style hood (i.e. against the wall and up to the ceiling).
All my other appliances seemed more straight forward to choose, but the hood selection is killing me.
We have a lot of large windows in the kitchen, so most important to us is that the hood have good lighting. I've seen hoods with halogen, LED and standard light bulbs -- WHICH PROVIDES THE BEST LIGHTING FOR COOKING? Will 2 25 watt halogens beat 3 20 watt standard bulbs?
It would be a bonus to have one that is also easy on the ears.
Some additional info: must fit up to our 9'2" ceiling, and is going into an overseas home.
We've been focusing on Bosch and Delonghi (since these models are common here) but we are open to an suggestions.
