Best Bang for the Buck 40"ish Hood Insert

building_a_houseDecember 19, 2012

Looking for a hood insert that is around 40" or so for my 6 burner 36" rangetop. Minimum CFM of around 600.

What do you recommend? Links are appreciated.

We've been looking at hoods lately too. And are likely to go with an Abakka insert and custom made copper shell by a local metal smith. They are willing to custom make the insert and get good reviews.

I have a Modern Aire, but it's a 34". I love it. I bought it at a Kitchen Center.

Yes both Modernaire and Abakka will do custom fora modest up charge. We are going with the remote blower. The shape of the abakka worked
Out better for our space

How much extra is a remote blower setup?

In my recent hood search and research, I found that Modern Aire uses Abakka blowers for their remote set ups. I needed a pyramid/chimney style for over an island, which needed to be customized for our sloped ceiling. I also wanted a remote blower. Had it narrowed down to Modern Aire or Prizer, (BlueStar's parent co.) Decided on the Prizer, because of it's seamless construction, although a bit more $. I believe they do inserts as well. prizerhoods.com
