Most people have seen or bought this type of ventilation.

AK1100S: Zephyr has decent CFM and is a good hood. It is under $200, which is way cheaper than these...or is it?


Yale Exclusive RH00130S $699


Yale Exclusive RH0330 $799


At $699 and $799, the Yale brand is more expensive than the Zephyr. At 600 CFM, with stainless steel and halogen lighting, it should have a premium...only it might not.

If you are renovating with custom or semi-custom cabinets.  The price of the hood and cabinet may be more expensive. 

Chimney style hoods like the Yale, Best, Faber and other European ventilation look better than the traditional hoods of the past. Just compare the total costs before opting for less attractive alternatives.
