Independent vs Prestige Vent Hood

14 years ago

First post here. Thanks to the forum, I've decided on an American Range 30" and now need to pick a hood to go over it. I dont have room for more than a 30" wide and am looking at the Independent and the Prestige in the standard 18" high pro style stainless. They look comparable basically (solid construction, baffle filter, lined). Any opinions on either would be appreciated.

Also it seems that each are standard with a 1200cfm blower though a 600 cfm is an option - any reason not to go with the 1200? The price difference is inconsequential. I pan fry and blacken occasionally so it might be nice to have for those times. I dont yet know of the make up air requirements in NJ though.
