Under Cabinet Range Hoods: A Classic Appliance
Not all kitchens are created equally. Some large, spacious kitchens might be able to tuck all of their appliance and flatware storage beneath cabinets, leaving the walls open and airy. More often than not, however, a good, modern kitchen layout features—smartly—wall-mounted storage space. These cabinets provide valuable and quick access to cooking tools whenever you need them, and without having to bend over or fish a bowl out of a floor-level cabinet. If your kitchen features wall-mounted cabinets, chances are you’ve got one installed directly over your range or stove-top. While convenient, these cabinets often bear the full brunt of your cooking. Smokes, smells, and airborne grease particles can head straight for your cabinets, ending up with a sticky, greasy residue when all’s said and done.
How You Will Benefit From An Under-Cabinet Range Hood
Our wide selection of under-cabinet range hoods feature popular and easy-to-use models that will fit in naturally into any kitchen. With a wide variety of finishes and power levels, you’re sure to find a model that suits your personal needs and preferences. The under-cabinet range hoods we offer fit directly beneath existing cabinet installations, where they can provide exhaust fans, grease removal, and bright lights to help you cook. Plus, fan control and light switches are always at your fingertips, right beneath your easy-to-access cooking tools.
While most range hoods naturally feature fans as their selling points, they also generally come with illuminating lights that will make cooking easier. Halogen and LED bulbs will shine a spotlight on your frying pans and boiling pots without adding too much extra heat. Never stir in the dark again.
Clear the Air
Of course, the breakout feature of any range hood is the fans which capture and exhaust smokes and smells from your kitchen. The most pungent recipes are often the most delicious, but nobody wants to smell those spices two or three days after you’ve cooked. Our under-cabinet range hoods operate at high speeds to quickly suck up those powerful scents, and can exhaust them through ducting to the outside or simply filter, clean, and recirculate air to your interior. Range hoods are commonly rated at varying CFMs (cubic feet per minute), and serve as a rating of how much air a given exhaust fan can remove in a given time. Depending on your kitchen size, space, and needs, you’ll find an appropriate power of range hood in our wide selection right here at Living Direct.
Range hoods don’t just capture air, either. They’ll also assist you in capturing grease particles that kick up into your kitchen air while you cook. But instead of letting those particles settle down and harden into a greasy residue that can coat countertops and surfaces, our range hoods will capture them in grease traps, so that when they do solidify, they’ll be in one easy space that’s incredibly easy to clean.
No matter your personal preference—or whatever your kitchen needs might be—we’ve got you covered. Check out our expansive selection of under-counter range hoods today and find something that’ll make cooking that much easier.
