Stainless Steel Range Hoods
Stainless steel is a steel alloy consisting of at least 10.5 percent chromium. Stainless steel is less susceptible to staining, rusting or corroding than ordinary steel. This makes it the ideal material for use under demanding conditions such as cooking, which is why we use stainless steel in the manufacturing of Euro-Kitchen's stainless steel range hoods. When you purchase a stainless steel vent hood from Euro-Kitchen, you get a quality product featuring 19-gauge stainless steel that ensures the durability of the stainless steel hood for years to come.
Why Do I Need a Stainless Steel Stove Hood?
If you're like most people, you probably haven't given stainless steel vents hood much thought, and you may not be fully aware of what a stainless steel hood does. Basically, a stainless steel vent hood directs potentially harmful fumes away from the rest of your home, as well as helps remove steam and smoke during cooking. In a typical home, an average of one gallon of cooking fat and grease ends up on the walls and counters of your kitchen. An effective stainless steel ventilator hood filters out much of this grease, which helps prevent unwanted smells from taking over your home, making for a more pleasant living environment. In addition, the chore of cleaning your kitchen is much easier.
When It Comes to Stainless Steel Range Hoods, Size Matters
Like many products, range hoods come in a number of sizes. So how do you know what size is best for you? In general, the larger the range hood, the more effective it is at keeping grease and fumes out of your home. Depending on space and budget constrictions, it is best to choose a range hood that is wider than the range or stove it covers. For instance, if you have a 30-inch range, consider purchasing a range hood that is at least 36 inches in width.
A Stainless Steel Ventilator Hood for Any Type of Range
There is no one type of stainless steel kitchen exhaust hood that is right for every purpose. Depending on the configuration of your kitchen and the type of stove you use, your stainless steel stove hood needs will vary. More than likely, you will need one of three stainless steel ventilation hood types: island mounted, wall mounted or under cabinet.
The Island Mounted Stainless Steel Vents Hood Range
Many modern kitchens feature a cooking "island," consisting of a countertop, range and cooking area, which is located in the center of the room. If your kitchen contains a cooking island, you will likely need an island mounted stainless steel ventilation hood. At Euro-Kitchen, our collection of kitchen hoods of stainless steel includes retractable hoods that extend upward from the stove to pull air and exhaust into ducts, which are set below floor level. Many of our stainless steel range hoods include options that allow for height adjustments to accommodate ceilings as high as 12 feet. You'll also enjoy the convenience of being able to use the stainless steel stove hood from both sides of your island.
The Wall Mounted Stainless Steel Stove Hood
If your range rests against an exterior wall, which does not contain a cabinet, a wall mounted stainless steel kitchen exhaust hood will likely be your best option. A wall mounted stainless steel vents hood can best be described as resembling an upside down chimney. This unique feature provides the wall mounted stainless steel ventilator hood with the most flexibility and opportunity for creativity when it comes to style. For this reason, the wall mounted stainless steel hood has become a popular choice among kitchen designers and design aficionados.
Under Cabinet Kitchen Hoods of Stainless Steel
In smaller kitchens where space is often at a premium, stoves are typically placed along exterior walls below kitchen cabinets. This situation is perfect for an under cabinet stainless steel ventilation hood. As its name implies, this type of hood is installed directly under the cabinet and often works by pulling air out of the kitchen through exhaust ducts installed in the exterior wall. While these models may not offer as much opportunity for style as a wall or island mounted stainless steel vent hood, they are a reasonable alternative, making them an excellent choice for homeowners or tenants on a budget.
