- A range hood is a useful investment because it can stop grease, smoke, cooking odors from traveling through your house
- Take note of the decibel measurement.  The more powerful the motor, the louder the noise
- Look for a model with dishwasher-safe stainless steel filter
- Know the extraction rate.  Higher extraction rate will vent a larger amount of air.  If you do a lot of cooking, get one with an extraction rate of around 700m3/h
