Range Hood Inserts: Hidden Functionality
By design, range hood inserts are a well-kept secret. These clever units fit discreetly into an already existing cavity, often between two cabinets or behind a neatly decorated façade. Inserts are perfect for the cook who wants full utility behind a personal style that neatly matches the entirety of their kitchen. You’ve already carefully selected cabinets, countertops, your range, and other appliances—why settle for a range hood that sticks out like a sore thumb, distracting the eye from the stylistic unity of your kitchen?
Our wide selection of insert hoods offers all of the utility without the eyesore. Place these compact units directly into your existing infrastructure and they’ll come to life, making cooking and cleaning all that much easier.
How You Will Benefit From A Range Hood Insert
Most range hoods are such an integral part of the cooking experience that we barely notice them. We turn on our stoves, reach up and hit a couple of switches before we’re on our way to preparing delicious meals. But there’s a lot going on up there—much more than meets the eye. The chief function of a range hood is to clean your kitchen air. Naturally, cooking produces a lot of smokes and smells. There’s nothing worse than the scents or smoke of a delicious recipe lingering past its welcome.
Our range hood inserts use high-powered fans to exhaust those unwanted fumes and cycle them either outside via ducting networks or back into your home—after a pass through a cleaning filter, or course. Our wide selection of insert range hoods features varying power ratings, sorted by CFM. CFM—or cubic feet per minute—is essentially a rating of how much air or exhaust a unit can remove or cycle at any given time. A higher CFM might be able to clean more air in a shorter period of time, but it will also add extra noise due to fan speed. Depending on your kitchen layout and personal needs, a lower CFM might fit the bill just perfectly, leaving your kitchen free of unwanted odors and sounds all the same.
Cleaner Surfaces, Too
Range hoods don’t just trap and filter out odors and smokes—they also help keep your kitchen surfaces clean. While you cook at high temperatures, cooking greases often get stirred up and grease particulates end up in your air. When they cool down, they solidify, settling all over your pristine kitchen countertops and range surfaces in a stick, greasy residue. Range hoods often feature built-in grease traps that will collect these particles before they have a chance to return to a solid, sticky mess. Our insert range hoods will help you keep your kitchen both clean and clear during cooking and after.
No matter your personal need or preference, we’ve got you covered. Check out our expansive collection of range hoods to find the insert hood that’s right for you. It might be hidden, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be handy. Shop around and find the perfect fit today.
