Under-Cabinet Kitchen Range Hood Reviews: How to Find the Model for You

 

Installing a kitchen range hood is a great way to keep the air fresh and save money on your electricity bill. But finding the right kitchen range hood to suit your budget and needs can be quite a task, especially because there are many different types that offer varying features. Here, we’ll compare models from three leading kitchen range hood brands to help you choose the right appliance.

If you’re on a serious budget, there are many under-cabinet range hoods for $100 or less varying from 21” to 30” widths. This non-ducted Broan Economy 2-Speed Under Cabinet Range Hood is both affordable and stylish, offering a sleek stainless steel finish for under $100. It also comes in different sizes (24”, 30” and 36”) and finishes (white, biscuit, almond and black; varies depending on the size).

For more moderate budgets, the bestselling Air King Energy Star Deluxe Quiet Range Hood offers three fan speeds, removable dishwasher-safe mesh filters, two light brightness settings and a low operating sound level for $300. If the 30” model doesn’t fit your range, there are also other sizes available for this unit.

Willing to shell out a little more? Another popular model is the Cavaliere Stainless Steel Under Cabinet Mount Range Hood. For under $650, you’ll enjoy four fan speeds, digital LED display, programmable timers and shut-off features, cleaning reminders and dishwasher safe filters. This super-quiet model offers a modern look and is easy to maintain, and is also available for different range widths.

Ifyou want a truly state-of-the-art kitchen range hood and money is no object, then consider Cavaliere’s line of high-end stainless steel models. For instance, this Cavaliere 36” Under Cabinet/Wall Mount Range Hood ($929) will add an elegant touch to your kitchen and offers one of the lowest range hood noise ratings. With a touch-sensitive LED control panel, dishwasher-safe stainless steel filters and plenty of light to illuminate your cooking space, this range hood also offers other luxury amenities such as a heat-sensitive fan that can adjust its speeds based on your needs and a convenient remote control.
