GE Cafe 30" Gas Range - Hood recommendations?

wonderfulgusSeptember 24, 2013

I just purchased the GE Cafe package of appliances with a 30" range for my kitchen renovation. (pheww my first purchase ahhhhh!)

My first of many question on this reno is....What hood do you recommend for a 30" range?. I have a clean modern taste. I will probably do a chimney style hood. I was looking at the XO - XOB 600CFM's.

My brother swears that I have to get a (more expensive) remote blower for a hood. He says otherwise it will be too loud. Do you really think that is necessary? I rarely use the fan now on my existing kitchen with basic sears type range with microwave above.

My Kitchen will be a lot more open to my living dining room area now...but this just doesnt; seem to be such a big deal to me am I missing something?

Thanks this site has already been a huge help in Kitchen planning...I am excited to get the ball rolling and move on this kitchen : )
