Range hood advice

I have a lead on a good deal for a Best K41. 30", 500 CFM, 8 sones

Is this a good hood? It looks like it is well made but 8 sones sounds noisy.

Range hood advice

Dee,
It turns out that because of the cabinet side cover panels I will have more like 34.5" so a 36" may not be an option.

Which hood did you go with? Will it be up against your cabinets or is there some space?

Range hood advice

I am remodeling my kitchen and already have the range and have ordered the cabinets.

There are not going to be any cabinets above the range and I left 36" between the wall cabinets to either side of the range. My plan was to put up a 30" chimney style stainless steel hood and have 3" between it and the cabinets. The venting could go through the wall, make a 90 degree turn and the it is a 5 foot run to the side of the house. Or I could go straight into the attic an then vent out the roof.

The range is a DCS RG-304. It has four 15,000 BTU burners for a total of 60,000 BTU. It seems that strictly speaking I should get a 600 CFM hood but can I get away with less? I live alone and will rarely use more than 2 burners but may sell this place in the next few years.

Are any of the less know brands worth considering? For example,
