I have been enjoying my newly remodeled kitchen for nearly a year now. I have enjoyed cooking and baking for my family again, as well as hosting family parties and gatherings for the first time in years. In fact, I hosted Thanksgiving for both sides of my family this year, for a total of 40 people! I honestly couldn’t have done it without the wonderful products I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy. One of my favorite and most-used appliances is my BEST Island Range Hood that I received for a hands-on review for this blog.
It is the centerpiece of my kitchen – a gorgeous one at that!
The BEST Stainless Steel Range Hood with Glass Shelf ties in the stainless steel and contemporary look of my kitchen together seamlessly. It adds sophistication and beauty to the kitchen. I had concerns that it would “over power” my kitchen and be too large or in the way, but my fears were unfounded. It is the opposite, in fact. The BEST range hood is quite proportional and the right size for an island range hood. The glass shelf is gorgeous with or without adding decorations. I like to have a small vase with fresh cut flowers or a trinket my kids made. It makes cooking more enjoyable for me.
Aside from the beauty of the BEST island range hood, it is my work horse. I use it multiple times daily – more than I’ve used any other range hood. It has special features like Heat Sentry™ that detects excessive heat from your cooktop and adjusts the exhaust fan speed automatically. It does the work for me – something I love while I’m cooking. When I have multiple items on my Kenyon induction cooktop and indoor grill, it can get quite steamy! I have the BEST island range hood center directly over the cooktop and indoor grill. It handles all the steam and smoke effortlessly! It is like having a professional grade range hood in my home.
With all the power, you would be surprised to hear it. The blower is powerful and HVI certified but has a relatively quiet interior blower. Another elegant feature on the hood are the four speed push-button electronic control that blends in with the style and are easy to operate.
Again, the Heat Sentry feature is amazing. When I have multiple burners going and the grill, it will automatically adjust to high when necessary. Then, when it senses the heat has subsided, it will turn itself back down. I am often already placing items on the table when the hood goes from high to low. Plus, it has a 10 minute timer that shuts the fan off if there is no heat detected and you are finished with it. This allows me extra time to get food on the table since I can skip the step of turning the fan back down. It is the simple things that make the difference!
I love the two-level lighting. I have it on most all day long at low and then up when I am preparing food. It gives the right amount of light to your cooking area. This is huge for me. If I can’t see what I’m cooking, it frustrates me. This is not a problem now for me! The underside of the BEST island range hood is beautiful too – and easy to clean. You can even put the stainless steel/aluminum mesh filters are dishwasher safe too!
In my next post, I will show you a video of the BEST island range hood in use, so you can see how the Heat Sentry feature works. Hopefully you’ll be able to see and hear how wonderfully this range hood works and how it is such a part of my every day cooking life.
