PYRAMID STYLE (Buy Now)

The "Pyramid" shaped range hood is one of the best types of range hoods to purchase for best overall performance. The main reason for this is due to the fact that pyramid-shaped range hoods have a lot more open space inside and around the blower. All air and steam is less restricted when traveling through the hood. In the case of "T-Shaped" range hoods or range hoods that have tempered glass, the blower inside is generally much more closed off. The openings on each side of the blower of such range hoods is partially covered because the blower is recessed inside a box. This affects the overall suction and noise levels of the range hood. The pyramid style range hood is recommended for heavy cooking.
