Now that my part of Pennsylvania will be moving to the green phase next week, I anticipate our kitchen renovation that started in January will resume and be finished pretty quickly. I need to order a range hood for my Bosch 36" induction cooktop.
I plan on ordering a 42" stainless steel model as wood is out of our price range right now. And I am looking for a lower profile model.
Here are the brands and models am I considering:
Zephyr Siena Pro (600cfm, $1200)
XO XOV42S (700, $1250)
XO XOJ425 (700 cfm, $1250)
Elica Leone (1200 cfm, $1200)
Zephyr Arc Layers (600cfm, $2500)
Wolf VI42B (600 cfm, about $2100, also 45" wide)
ZLine: I haven't read many positive comments about them.
Vent-a-Hood: good reviews but out of our budget
Elica: know little about this brand
XO: know little about this brand
Zephyr: reading some good reviews but there is limited information
What experience do you have with these brands? I am not finding the amount of information I would like to be comfortable choosing a brand.
Would a 45" hood be too wide?
Also, here are a few photos of the wall where the hood will go, What are your thoughts?
