Best Range Hoods at KBIS
It may not be the most exciting decision you make, but choosing the right vent hood for your stove is an important one when it comes to both form and function. A lot of factors go into choosing the right hood, including:
- Kitchen layout
- Type of exhaust system
We discovered a few new innovations from Best Range Hoods during our recent trip to KBIS. These models caught our eye not just for their efficiency, but their eye-catching (or not) design.
Cirrus Flush-Mounted Island Ceiling Hood
The flush-mounted ceiling hood from Cirrus is perfect for open space designs where an unobstructed view is preferred. The vent is mounted directly to the ceiling, which means no visual obstruction over island cooking area – this is perfect for ‘open space’ designs with unobstructed views and clean lines. In-line or external blower motors stay quiet even when providing up to 1200 CFM ventilation performance.
The fashion-forward prototype PUDDY island hood is an Italian design, is truly a “statement piece” for the kitchen. Chrome with bright pink internal accents, rather than hiding or blending into the background this vent hood becomes a stylish focal point.
The Cattura Downdraft allows you to install a downdraft with a free-standing range, drop-in cooktop, gas or electric cooktop, slide-in range, or a build-in oven with a cooktop. In short—versatility. The Cattura Downdraft is perfect for island ventilation or when overhead hoods are not applicable. The ventilation performance of the Cattura Downdraft rivals chimney hoods and its powerful LED lightbar provides illumination to the cooking area.
