[Costco] Ancona Stainless Range Hood 30" 420cfm LED lighting $299

Nice discount on this range hood. Possible price beat at home depot which has it at $459. I picked one up to replace an old white Broan that sounds like pontiac sunfire when its running (I own one of those too)

price beat? https://www.homedepot.ca/product/ancona ... lsrc=aw.ds

I'd be weary of this brand. Mine died after about 3 years. Replaced it with a whirlpool and so far so good.

A bit on the weak side at 420CFM. Better than you builder crap @ 200CFM. But if im upgrading, i'd get something at least 600CFM. I stir-fry a lot, so 600 minimum. Forget about this if you have a gas stove.

These are no good... Bought a Atzeni range hood that is twice as powerful and should be just as quiet.

Noob here, can you elaborate why? Not enough CFM?

With a gas range, the rule of thumb usually is add up the BTUs of your burner, divide by 100 to get the approx CFM. Example, 50,000 BTU, you need around a 500CFM fan. In our family, we rarely have 2 stoves on at a time, actually thinking about it, dont think we have ever had all 5 burners on at the same time, at most 3.

By weary do you actually mean weary (as in tired), or are you trying to combine wary and leery?
How long ago did you install the Whirlpool? Significantly longer than three years ago since you're implying it's an improvement, right?

YMMV I guess, but I've had an Ancona that looks very similar to this one for a few years. We use it often, and it hasn't had any problems at all. It moves enough air that you have to crack a window somewhere in the house for it to be effective.

My only complaint is that it's pretty loud on the highest setting.

Same. High speed is noisy but effective. Especially searing meat or have a lot of stuff on boil. Works best when I also crack the kitchen window. Big upgrade from the LG over the stove microwave fan it replaced. More steam and smoke flowed around the fan than through it.
