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.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
