Please help with kitchen hood decision for Bluestar 48 inch range

DobaMarch 14, 2013

If anyone out there has any experience with Bluestar or the other higher output ranges and has a painted white hood above it I would love to know how it's going for you. I had been planning to order a white wood hood with an insert , but was advised today that I may not be happy in a year or so. I was told that if I use the wok or griddle,the white paneled hood may yellow. I only have 48 inches for the maximum depth and cannot go beyond 24 inches for the depth. I am about start our kitchen reno. and have to make a quick decision. Should I just take a chance or go with a stainless hood with white paneling above. I have 8 foot ceilings. BTW, I live in MD(closer to DC) and am using a custom cabinet maker in PA. I haven't seen him mentioned here yet. I am very happy with him and will post photos as soon as my kitchen is done. He does beautiful work.

We don't have white painted hood, but we have a cherry wood hood with an insert. Our Bluestar is 36", and we use the wok at least once a week. We've had it for a few months, and no problem with the wood hood, not sure if the painted hood would be any different, but it seems I see the big cooktops with painted wood hoods quite often.
Good luck- I know you'll love your Bluestar- it's the favorite part of our kitchen.
