What are the best chimneys?

Cooking exposes your family to pollutants that come from the gas being burnt - it's not just the odors that you should worry about. In combustion, nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide are released, gases that cause respiratory diseases. That is why chimneys, or range hoods, have become essential in kitchens.

    "The perfect addition to our kitchen. It looks ultra-modern and sleek and goes along well with the rest of our kitchen appliances. It wasn't easy to install but it fit our cabinet perfectly. Now about its performance: it's perfect! The suction is ridiculously powerful but it's not loud. The best wall mount range hood we've ever had. "

    "It looks fabulous and keeps steam and smoke away from our kitchen. It's very thin so you might mistake that its suction power is feeble but no. It's very powerful but silent. Because it's thin it was very easy to install. It's the lightest and quietest wall-mount range hood we've ever had. "

    "It looks great but the lights were bad. Had to replace the one that came with the range hood because it burned out after only a month. It's still a good chimney that sucks steam away well. Installation was also pretty easy. "

    "It does a fantastic job of keeping away the odors in our kitchen. It's not very quiet but that's a minor complaint. Also when I purchased this the lights were really dim so I called customer service and they quickly sent me brighter lights. Great range hood and great customer service! "

    "Very quiet with an incredible design but the accessories that you need to install it needs to be purchased separately, including the suspension. Anyway, it has a very powerful suction that completely gets rid of smells especially when cooking meats. "

    "Replaced our Broan range hood with this and I couldn't be happier. Our old chimney was broken beyond repair and we recently got the iChorus installed. I have to mention though that this is NOT something DIYers should do as the thing is heavy. It's an excellent product. I love the design and the suction is beyond powerful. Now the problem: it's VERY LOUD. It's impossible to have a conversation when this thing is on. Other than that it's the best range hood we've ever had. "
