Honest opinions about how to buy Appliances and Lighting.

Flash back to the 1980s(back when I was cool...sort of)

At that point of time, if you wanted to purchase an overhead hood, Broan and Nutone were the only manufacturers. The Nutone version was called a chuck wagon hood evoking the high styles of the early 50s. Broan wasn't much better.

Then in the 90s the Europeans exported beautiful hoods. They became functional focal points in the kitchen...Have a look(most of these are wall mounted, but there are similar products designed for island)

A couple of pointers:

1. Ventilation is CFM and capture. Size the hood properly for what you are cooking

2. Check ceiling heights...Duct extensions can be super expensive
