Is the Magic Lung really magical?
I'm looking at buying a 30" Capital Culinarian and I want to pair it with a 36" range hood. My original plan was to get a normal range hood with a baffle filter and an external blower in the 1000 CFM range. Something like the Broan E6000 (http://www.broan.com/display/router.asp?ProductID=100623).
But, afte rspeaking to a rep at a local appliance store, he made a pitch for a Vent-a-hood with the magic lung, he claims that a 600 cfm magic lung is equivalent to 900 cfm elsewhere, and that it's very quiet.
Does he speak the truth? Should I consider a VAH with a magic lung? My searches on gardenweb have said they can be a pain to clean but very little commentary on the effectiveness/noise levels of the magic lung.
