Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood: Features 

The Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood uses two fans to get rid of cooking smells and smoke. Its fans have three speeds and can reach speeds of 400 CFM (cubic feet per minute) which is on par with the ZLine KL2-36 Range Hood we reviewed.

Unlike many other range hoods we looked at though, the Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood, the Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood is fitted with four lights which provide plenty of brightness to help you see what you're cooking. 

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. What's more, there is the option to install this extractor with a flue or as a ventless range hood. 

However, it's worth bearing in mind that if you want to operate this range hood without a vent, you'll need to buy an additional recirculation kit. Likewise, if the chimney piece on the Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood is too short for your ceiling height, you can buy an extension kit. 

You can remove the aluminum mesh filters from this range hood with ease and these can then be placed in the dishwasher to remove grime and grease. 

The push-button controls on the Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood are simple and have a minimal design profile. The buttons are also conveniently placed at the front of the hood, unlike some other models that position the buttons underneath the hood.

When measuring for your range hood, you should allow three to six 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 Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood operates on a standard 120-volt circuit and the fan reaches noise levels, on its highest setting, of 67 dB, which is typical for a three-speed fan. 

The Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood should be wide enough for most six-burner island stoves.

Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood: User reviews 

The Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood has an average user rating of 4.4 out of five on Best Buy. Users said that this range hood is easy to install and the lights are great. Others mention how this range hood is powerful, but it is quite loud. 

Should you buy the Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood?

The Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood is a great choice for large cooktops, although there are cheaper models available that will do the same thing. If you need a range hood with plenty of bright lighting and adjustable fan speeds, the Frigidaire FHPC4260LS Range Hood is a solid choice.
