Under Cabinet Range Hood Buying Tips


Why Trust Us?

Your range hood plays an integral role in the cooking process. It removes smoke and other pollutants from the air, which means you can breathe easier and cook more comfortably. Clean air is essential for your family, especially if you have kids and relatives with respiratory issues. Smoke from cooking can trigger asthma symptoms and worsen other breathing problems.

One option to consider is an under cabinet range hood, which can fit into most spaces. If you’re not sure where to start, here are the seven best range hoods on the market that will provide the performance levels you need.  under cabinet range hood reviews

Best Smart Range Hood: Samsung 30" Stainless Steel Under Cabinet Wall Hood

Shop This Samsung Under Cabinet Range Hood

One of the best ways to understand how useful a range hood can be is to invest in smart kitchen ventilation. This Samsung under cabinet range hood has Bluetooth connectivity that syncs the fans with the burners below. When you fire up your largest burner, the range hood will react and filter air at a higher rate. 

This 30” under cabinet range hood is one of the smaller models on the market, but it is still powerful with up to 600 CFMs of air circulation.  

Featured Samsung NK30N7000US review: I purchased this hood, and also installed a new Samsung cooktop with bluetooth connectivity. By turning on any of the 5 burners on the cooktop, the high-volume hood fan starts without assistance, and remains on while the cooktop is still running. This feature set is extremely helpful, as I no longer ever forget to turn on the fan, avoiding those annoying smoke alarm events in my house.”

Best Stainless Steel Under Cabinet Range Hood: Maytag® 36" Stainless Steel Convertible Under the Cabinet Hood

Shop This Maytag Under Cabinet Hood

You can’t beat this appliance by Maytag if you are looking for a high-quality stainless steel under cabinet range hood. It has three different power levels, so you can choose the best one based on what you are cooking (not every dish needs a high-powered exhaust fan to clear the air). The motor can reach up to 400 CFM, which is effective at removing smoke and grease from the air. At a width larger than a standard range hood, this 36” under cabinet range hood is ideal for larger cooking appliances such as a 36” range or cooktop.

Featured Maytag UXT5536AAS review: Not only does this fan vent extremely well on the lowest setting (where it spends 90% of its time) but it is almost silent! When you need the extra venting it's going to be noisier but it works and it works well.”

Shop This Maytag Under Cabinet Hood

This is one of the quietest under cabinet hood range models on the market. At its low speed, it only makes 45 dBA of sound, which means you can still hold a quiet conversation while cooking or you won’t have to worry about disturbing your family. This ductless under cabinet range hood is also ADA-compliant and offers two speed settings. If you’re more of a casual cook, this should be more than enough kitchen ventilation.

Featured Maytag UXT4030ADS review:“Love it! Sometimes I forget to turn it off, it's so quiet. It matches perfectly! No complaints.”

Under Cabinet Range Hood Buying Tips

Before you start shopping for range hoods, it helps to have a clear idea of what you need and the options you prefer. This will help you filter down your choices to a few top contenders. Here are a few factors to consider.

  • Size: First, find a range hood that is at least as wide as your range—if not three inches longer on each side. Additionally, you’ll need to measure your range hood’s height to ensure you have proper clearance for maximum filtration.
  • Speed: Determine how many CFMs you need from a range hood.
  • Style: Decide how you want your range to look, whether this means buying a black stainless option as a centerpiece or a smaller range that is less noticeable.
  • Technology: identify any features you would like with your hood. These include Wi-Fi connectivity and ADA compliance.

Ventilation can feel tricky with measurements and math. Let’s help simplify the process by answering some common questions we get from buyers like you.

Under cabinet range hood vs wall mount: which is better?

The best under cabinet range hood will depend on the layout of your kitchen. Some kitchens have the space for a wall-mounted range while other spaces need ventilation installed under the cabinetry. Make sure you can enjoy clean air in your home in order to protect your friends and loved ones.

What is CFM?

CFM stands for “cubic feet per minute” and is the measurement used to report power levels in a ventilation hood. The higher the CFM, the more air the hood can circulate, which will clear the air faster. A standard rate for kitchen hoods is around 300-400 CFM, but some models will go higher. 

How big of a range hood do I need?

Your range hood should be the width of your stovetop and up to three inches longer on either side. This will allow the hood to effectively catch and filter smoke without taking up too much room. A range hood that is too small won’t be effective while a hood that is too large is potentially a waste of money.
