    Question Range Hood recommendations

    I need good 24" range hood. I'm looking at these range hoods:

    1. STD-100-BLK - Cost $259.00 but it has only a 600 cfm, how important is this?
    2. KA-146-BLG I like it more, but price $919.00, it's very high
    3. KA-144-BLK -Maybe this is the best choice, i don't know.

    I need any advice.

    P.S. glass or plastic is easier to clean?

    The CFM depends on your house and your needs.
    Which may be different that my house and my needs.
    Everything else is just what do you want/ like.

    John,
    Glass is definately easier to clean than plastic and won't discolor over time. More important to me than CFM is noise level at different CFMs, as well as number of fan settings.

    Noise level is important
    A few years ago my bride just had to have an over the range MW hood.
    I HATE THE DAMN THING
    Noisy, does a lousy job of removing cooking odors and steam.
    Since the light is closer it does a poor job at lighting.
    Worst of all it cost over $400, and does a poor job.

    Yeah, the noise can be annoying during the cooking. And i never buy a plastic range hood. Thanks for your advice.
