range hood recommendations?
We need to replace our downdraft vent with an undercabinet hood. This will go over a 36" induction cooktop. I would like 600cfm minimum. There are no restrictions on MUA in our county. However there are several mechanical restrictions, which is why I'm appealing to you wise GW readers.
The hood has to fit into a 36" wide space under the cabinets. We would like to avoid giving up the cabinet, so we want to use existing duct (for the downdraft) which is 3.25" x 10" rectangular or equivalent to 7" round. Ideally we want a hood with rear opening so it will go straight into the wall, and connect with the existing duct. There are still 3 or 4 90 degree bends. I'm not sure if there are 2 or 3 bends in the existing duct.
We're willing to spend up to $1000, but will go higher if there's a perfect solution out there. I've looked at Kobe 122 SQB which looks like it might be right. Are there others we should consider?
