    Does anyone have a great experience with a particular brand of vent hood? I have a gas range and I do a lot of cooking. It will be venting outside. I don't know much about vent hoods since I've never had to purchase one before. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    No, the microwave isnt powerful enough to remove the smells and I would prefer to have a hood.

    I believe the measurement is 30

    No cupboard above. The hood chimney will go to ceiling.

    Broan and Nutone are two brands you will find in the big box stores. They are essentially the same company. Nutone has been around for decades and their stuff generally works Okay. I can't speak for any higher end products, but if you venture into that territory, be prepared to pay.
