hoods - baffles vs. centrifugal and other issues
I am replacing my under-cabinet hood. I would like a VAH but they are too tall. My current hood is 6" tall and I frequently bump my head. The VAHs that are 6" tall have less than 300cfm. To get up to 600cfm, the hood has to be 9" tall.
The Kobe brand seems to be a good value. There are several choices that are 6" or less tall, some with baffles, some with centrifugal fans. What are the advantages/disadvantages of the different filtration types? One model, RA2830SQB-1 30 inch, is only 2" tall. Is this too good to be true?
I would appreciate any and all input.
