The IKTCH IKB02-36 takes the number one spot in this top 3 of the best 36 range hood inserts of 2023, and it does so for a good reason: it is a complete package. For instance, it packs a whopping 900 CFM motor under the hood. That's a LOT of power, and more than enough for any home kitchen. (Make sure to provide make-up air.) All this power is controlled by an LCD touch screen, which is a welcome feature, as it provides more control than your regular push buttons. E.g., you can have the range hood automatically shut off after 1-15 minutes, so as to remove all the air pollutants and food smells from the kitchen after you've finished cooking. The IKTCH IKB02-36 even comes with gesture controls, which allows you to control the speed of the range hood by waving, which makes sticky or saucy finger situations less frustrating.
IKTCH has included the option to convert the IKB02-36 insert range hood into a ductless range hood. Ductless range hoods recirculate the sucked up air back into your kitchen rather than vent it outside like a regular range hood will (in case you lack a vent in the kitchen). What's more, IKTCH even includes the charcoal filters needed for the conversion with the IKB02-36, so you don't have to buy them separately. (Ofcourse, you will obviously have to replace them after a while.)
Aesthetically, the IKTCH IKB02-36 is absolutely stunning. Crafted from premium 1mm (19-gauge) stainless steel, this 36 range hood insert will elevate the looks of any kitchen. Due to the nature of insert range hoods, the IKTCH IKB02-36 will seamlessly integrate in any kitchen, regardless of the kitchen style. Since the insert range hood will only be partly visible due to a large part of it being covered by your cupboard, the visible part of the IKTCH IKB02-36 will add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen.
IKTCH provides a generous 10-year warranty on the motor and blower with the purchase of the IKB02-36 insert range hood, as well as a 5-year warranty on the LED lights and switch control, and a 1-year parts warranty which covers non-consumable replacement parts or components that failed due to manufacturing defects. We wish other range hood manufacturers would take example and follow suit.
The IKTCH IKB02-36 is an amazing deal. It has everything you'd want in a 36 insert range hood and more. Therefore, the IKTCH IKB02-36 deservedly takes our number one stop in this year's top 3 of the very best 36 inch insert range hoods.
