We've picked out our stove:
Now it's time to look at range hoods.
We've already called attention to some trends:
but how do you go about CHOOSING the right hood for your kitchen? Or do you even NEED a range hood?
That's what this thread is about!
So let's start with:
Choosing a Range Hood by Brand
Everyone has the occasional cooking fiasco, which typically includes burnt food. Range hoods are important for filtering or channeling the smoke and fumes to the outdoors, so the haziness or odors don’t spread to the rest of the home. Having a good quality range hood is important in maintaining a pleasant kitchen environment while cooking. This week, Kitchens by Renovation Experts wanted to find out which brand of range hood people would prefer to keep their kitchens smoke and odor free.
Poll participants were given some of the top brands to choose from. The options included RangeMaster, General Electric (GE), Broan and KitchenAid. GE was by far the most popular choice and took in exactly half of the votes. KitchenAid was the next big leader with 38 percent of people saying they trust this well-known brand for their range hood needs.
Rounding out the poll results were Broan and RangeMaster with 8 and 4 percent, respectively. While these two brands specialize in the production of range hood systems, it appears that many homeowners tend to want the typically more affordable range hoods from general appliance companies, such as GE and KitchenAId. Another possibility is that people have had good experience with both these brands in the past, and base their decisions on their previous positive association with the names.
