Recommend a hood over 30" induction range?
The house we're buying has a 30" electric range (which will be replaced by a 30" induction range) and above that, a microwave/fan combo (fan is vented to the outside through the roof).
I've learned here that those micro/fan units are pretty much useless, especially for people like us who hate having cooking smells all over the house. We don't fry or cook any meat other than roasted chicken (we're semi-veg, LOL). Mainly boiling and light sauteeing and a LOT of baking.
I know I'll have to get the ductwork changed out for something that can accomodate a REAL range hood, and from all I've read here, it seems as though 600CFM is what I should be looking at. There is a window in the kitchen and so makeup air wouldn't be an issue.
I haven't shopped for a hood for 15 years which is when we bought the Vent-a-Hood island hood in our current house. VERY noisy and to be honest I'm not all that impressed with its performance either.
Any recommendations as to what we should be looking at for a range hood? The budget is NOT unlimited but I don't want Costco-quality either....
