As a company, ZLINE got its start when founder Andrew Zuro could not find a range hood that was up to his standards. Fast forward to the present day and ZLINE has expanded into ranges, refrigerators, dishwashers, and more, but the range hood still remains one of their top products and they continue to revolutionize the industry.
What is a Range Hood?
The range hood is often overlooked when building or remodeling a space, but it is an essential part of any modern kitchen. Range hoods help remove smoke, odor, heat, moisture, and grease from the air while cooking and are recommended for fire safety and air quality.
Range hood performance is primarily based on the size, ducting type, filters, and ventilation power offered by the fan and motor. A range hood should match or exceed the width of the cooking surface it covers and should be equipped with a fan and motor offering an appropriate CFM (cubic feet per minute) rating. To calculate what CFM rating you need for your range hood, add the total number of BTUs (British thermal units) your cooking surface provides and divide the total by 100. For example, a 10,000 BTU range would need a 100 CFM range hood.
If you’re considering purchasing a new range hood, you may be wondering where to get started in your search. Here are 5 key metrics you should look for while shopping for a new range hood.
ZLINE range hoods are available in sizes ranging from 24 inches to 60 inches with up to 700 CFMs, meaning ZLINE makes range hoods suitable for ranges and cooktops up to 60 inches wide and 70,000 BTUs. With high-performance 4-speed motors, ZLINE range hoods offer outstanding ventilation performance in the kitchen.

Should anything go wrong, ZLINE stands by all its products with a 3-year parts warranty, and a lifetime warranty on all motors.

DuraSnow range hoods retain the classic look of stainless steel but have additional durable enhancements such as a fingerprint-resistant property and the ability to effortlessly diminish scratches created from everyday wear and tear.
