5. FOTILE JQG7501.G (30")

Best under cabinet range hoods
Range hood review - FOTILE JQG7501.G (30")

The first you'll notice is how different it looks from a 'regular' under cabinet range hood. This form factor is also known as a side draft range hood. Its sleek, tempered glass looks draw your eyes in. Side drafted range hoods really make you feel as if you're living in the future. Luckily, they not only look very elegant, they also offer excellent venting performance. When you turn on the Fotile JQG7501, the plate on top will open, which exposes the baffle filters. The 90 degree tilt, combined with the strong double centrifugal 850 CFM motors ensure that almost all cooking smells and pollutants will be captured.

Great features like the soft touch control panel, delayed auto shut off, and very generous warranty really do make the Fotile JQG7501.G a complete package. But such performance combined with a very elegant look comes with a price. A large price, which is the main reason why the Fotile JQG7501.G isn't higher up in our top 5 of the best under cabinet range hoods of 2022. However, if you have the money to spend, the Fotile JQG7501.G is a great and classy choice.

4. Cosmo COS-QS75 (30")

SP Cosmo COS-QS75 - front

Best under cabinet range hoods
Range hood review - Cosmo COS-QS75 (30")

Cosmo is a very popular choice when it comes to under cabinet range hoods. There's no mystery as to why: Cosmo delivers (among other things) range hoods which offer a lot of bang for your buck. The Cosmo COS-QS75 under cabinet range hood is no exception. It has great features which are usually found in more expensive range hoods. Take, for instance, the soft-touch backlit touch screen. These are usually found in range hoods of twice the price of the Cosmo COS-QS75. Or how about the remote control, which is an extra we don't see a lot when it comes to range hoods. Though you might have some doubts about its usefulness, it's still a nice extra to have. You might not want to turn off your range hood immediately after cooking, so as to remove all the lingering cooking smells and pollutants. Now you can turn it off from a distance.

Interestingly enough, the Cosmo COS-QS75 has the option to convert into a ductless under cabinet range hood. If you don't have the option to connect your range hood to a vent which leads outside, converting the Cosmo COS-QS75 might be what you're looking for. The sucked up air will pass through (separately sold) carbon filters and recirculate back into your kitchen. Though not as effective as ducted range hoods, ductless range hoods certainly have their place. 

All in all, the Cosmo COS-QS75 provides great value for your money. If you're looking to get the most range hood for your money, take a look at the Cosmo COS-QS75. Combine this with a generous 3-year limited parts warranty and a US-based customer support, and you know why the Cosmo COS-QS75 is such a popular under cabinet range hood. If you're looking for a less powerful but cheaper model, take a look at the Cosmo UMC30 (380 CFM).

  • Great value for your money
  • Touch screen
  • Remote control
  • Can be converted into a ductless range hood
  • Relatively powerful motor (500 CFM)
  • 18-Gauge commercial grade stainless steel
  • 3-year limited parts warranty
  • A max of 68 dB is quite loud
  • The 1.5W LEDs aren't that bright

3. Broan-NuTone 413004 and 403004  (30")

The best under cabinet range hoods - Broan 413004 big

Best under cabinet range hoods
Range hood review -  Broan-NuTone 413004 / 403004 (30")

The 30-inch Broan-NuTone 413004 and the Broan-NuTone 403004 (which is the ducted version) have been two the most popular range hoods for years, and for good reason. You simply cannot beat their price. Do they have their fair share of flaws? You bet! The lack of a proper bottom cover for one. Or how about the oldschool, single incandescent light as the primary (and only) lightsource, which isn't even included with your purchase. The 160 CFM single fan won't ever top the power charts. So, why are they in our top 5 under cabinet range hoods? And why have these range hoods consistently been best sellers since their introduction? That whese flaws have to be placed in perspective. It's true, the Broan-NuTone 413004 and 403004 can't compete with the other under cabinet range hoods on this list. Our point it that they don't have to. The 413004 and 403004 cater to a whole different segment of the market. They really are and have been the most affordable under cabinet range hoods, and they probably will be for quite some time. 

To keep the price as low as possible, the Broan-NuTone 413004 and 403004 are stripped of all but the bare necessities. They are basically made up of a hood, a fan, a filter/duct and a light bulb. The controls consist of a light switch and a button to control the fan speed (hi and low). For most range hoods, we would consider this a bad thing, but not for the Broan-NuTone 413004 and 403004, as they are very competitively priced. The lack of extras is reflected in the price tag. This makes it the perfect pick for people who don't want to spend a lot of money on an under cabinet range hood. The Broan-NuTone 413004 and the Broan-NuTone 403004 get the job done without breaking the bank. (If you have a couple more bucks to spend on a range hood but still don't want to spend a lot, take a look at the 
Broan-NuTone BCSQ130SS and Broan NuTone BCDF130SS.)

2. Hauslane PS10

Best under cabinet range hoods
Range hood review - Hauslane PS10 (Chef Series) (30")

To be honest, we were quite conflicted about our top 2 best under cabinet range hoods. To be honest, they are all on par, and cater to different situations and budgets. The Hauslane PS10 (Chef Series) could have easily taken our first place. The Hauslane PS10 (Chef Series) is a beautifully designed and incredibly powerful under cabinet range hood. Its monstrous 900 CFM dual centrifugal motor will remove any cooking odor, smoke and any other aerosolized air pollutants floating around in your kitchen. (Please make sure to provide makeup air!) This under cabinet range hood will be able to handle any kind of heavy duty cooking you might do at home, and does so for a very reasonable price.

The Hauslane PS10 comes with a touch screen panel control with clock function. (You can never have enough clocks in your kitchen.) The range hood's 3-speed setting is controlled through the touch sceen, which is our preferred method of control. The Hauslane PS10's delayed auto shut off function is also controlled through the touch screen, which was one of our favorite features. After you finish cooking dinner, the kitchen is usually still full of cooking odors. Rather than being forced to smell what you've had for dinner well into the evening, you can have dinner while your range hood is removing said cooking smells and have it turn itself off after a certain period of time.

Hauslane, based in San Francisco, prides itself not only in delivering quality products, but also in having great customer support. This means that you will speak to a real person, rather than a robot. It's no wonder that Hauslane is currently one of the most popular and well respected range hood companies on the market. So, if you're looking for a powerful range hood which gets the job done, look no further than the The Hauslane PS10.

1. KOBE RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia (30")

SP Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia - front

Best under cabinet range hoods
Range hood review -
KOBE RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia (30")

Our pick for this year's best under cabinet range hood goes to the Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia. (The RAX2136SQB-1 and RAX2142SQB-1 which are the 36" and 42" versions of the same model.) With the RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia model, Kobe offers an under cabinet range hood which is a perfect blend of both style and performance. Its slim, seamless design with satin finish makes this Kobe range hood incredibly pleasing to the eye, as it's small enough to match well with virtually every kitchen, but big enough to make a statement. But don't let the exterior fool you. This slim under cabinet range hood packs a whopping 750 CFM motor. Equally impressive is Kobe's QuietMode™, which lets you run the under cabinet range hood at a reduced sound level of around 40 decibels (1.0 sone), which is a welcome feature. 

Although the Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia isn't outrageously expensive, it's not cheap either. For the price range it's in, we would have expected some more extras. The Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia is quite light on the features side. But although there is no fancy digital display to adjust settings or to set timers, it delivers where it should: the Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia is an aesthetically pleasing, high quality under cabinet range hood with a powerful 750 CFM motor.  

It doesn't come as a surprise Kobe has won a prestigious design award (ADEX) for the Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia. Kobe range hoods, based in California, has been at the forefront of range hood design for over 20 years, and in our humble opinion, the Kobe RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia has been their best range hood yet.
