The Frigidaire 42-inch Glass Canopy Island Hood has a modern design and dual fans to move smoke and odors out of your kitchen efficiently while you cook. You can install this range hood above your kitchen island to help trap smoke and grease while you cook in the middle of the kitchen.
The glass canopy has a modern design, as does the stainless steel chimney. Four halogen lights provide a bright source of task lighting while you cook. Two centrifugal fans move air at a rate of up to 400 CFM, with three adjustable speeds. You can remove the aluminum mesh filters for repeated washings in the dishwasher. The hood can be installed as a vented or non-ducted option. If you are planning on using the hood in ductless mode, you need to purchase the duct-free kit, which is available separately.
The push-button controls are simple and have a minimal design profile. Frigidaire provides a one-year parts and labor-limited warranty for this product. It has UL, CSA and ETL safety listings. When measuring for your range hood, you should allow 3 to 6 inches on either side of the stove to capture an adequate amount of smoke and grease. Because this is an island range hood, it can only discharge air vertically.
The stove operates on a standard 120-volt circuit. The fan reaches noise levels, on its highest setting, of 67 dB, which is typical for a three-speed fan. When you duct this hood, all air must terminate outside of the home. If this is not possible, you must use and install it in ductless mode. The maximum height installation from the bottom of the hood to the cooking surface should be 32 inches, although a safe range is 29 to 36 inches. The included installation guide does not provide dimension and clearance recommendations beyond that for this product.
The Frigidaire 42-inch Glass Canopy Island Hood should be wide enough for most six-burner island stoves, and you can install it as a ducted or non-vented hood. Frigidaire provides a one-year parts and labor warranty to protect your purchase.
