48' RNB hood pairing

mpaninopJune 11, 2012

We are building a new house and so there are a LOT of decisions to be made! I have pretty much settled on a 48" Blue Star RNB with 6 burners and a grill. And I need to think about what hood to pair with it. Any thoughts for quality and cost-effectiveness? Once upon a time I had a Vent-a-Hood and was pretty satisfied. Will want it to be wall hung, exposed and have a professional kitchen look, not a Euro look or built into any cabinetry.

Nice choice on the range!!! I love mine. I have a 48" bs similar to what you are looking for except I have a griddle as well as grill. You are going to love the grill, but it does create a lot of smoke. I have mine paired with a 54" wide by 27" deep 1200cfm vent a hood in their professional series. The professional series vent a hood keeps true to the lines of the bs and they look amazing together. I actually like the look of baffles in some of the competitors as it looks more commercial which is what I like. Some claim that scientifically the baffles will restrict some of the airflow but from real world accounts it seems like it isn't really a factor. As for performance, my vah will suck out all the smoke I throw at it with ease but it isn't quiet. The noise is my biggest complaint. I do not find cleaning it to be especially challenging as some report. Its been reliable and has done what it is supposed to do. Would I buy it again? Maybe. I would look at others as well but have no reason at all to discount a vah again.
