Wall Mount Range Hood Reviews
Kitchen range hoods are a must for any home chef who’s looking to make their cooking experience as safe and comfortable as possible. Wall-mounted range hoods are ideal if your oven is located against a wall without an overhead cabinet. And while under-cabinet models tend to be the most affordable types of range hoods, there are still a variety of wall-mounted units that fit every budget, range size, style and need.
When choosing a range hood, be sure to measure the width of your range to ensure you buy the right appliance size. It’s also important to note that the unit should extend 3” to 6” over the sides of the burners.
For those on a tight budget who aren’t willing to skimp on quality, Cavaliere offers a variety of stainless steel options for about $500 and under, depending on the range hood width you need. For instance, the 30” Cavaliere SV218B2-30 Wall Mount Range Hood offers a chimney style suitable for ceilings up to 9 feet tall, 6 fan speeds with a timer, low noise levels, washable filters, LED indicator lights and dimmable halogen lights. In addition, the appliance offers an auto-shut off feature and cleaning reminder.
If you’re willing to spare a little more cash for a sleeker look and the same convenient features as the aforementioned unit, Cavaliere’s 36” AP238-PSD-36 Stainless Steel Range Hood offers a beautiful bent glass top to give your kitchen a luxe feel for $629. The brand also offers a 42” width range hood model ($709) as well.
Looking to invest in a state-of-the-art appliance with professional features? Air King offers several Energy Star-rated range hoods that come with or without warming lights. A popular option is the brand’s Advantage Series Professional Range Hood with Warming Lights; at $870, this 18” tall by 36” wide stainless steel unit is quiet, comes with dishwasher-safe filters and can be tailored with your choice of accessories to suit your needs. These customizable units may require a blower and backsplash (sold separately). If you prefer a more compact unit or if your range requires a wider hood, Air King also offers units in several different sizes.
