Range Hood Review - Cosmo 668WRCS75 (30")

What immediately catches the eye when looking at the Cosmo 668WRCS75 is its beautiful tempered glass canopy. Though it might not fit into every kitchen, the Cosmo 668WRCS75's modern and sleek design will become the center piece in any modern kitchen, without being in-your-face big. Its minimalistic design will ensure you will retain an open space feel, and does so with style.

We do wish the Cosmo 668WRCS75 had been a bit wide in size. Ideally, your range hood would be as wide as your stove, so all air pollutants can be captured. This is most likely due to form restrictions; to make the glass canopy work. Though we aren't too big of a fan of choosing form over factor, we do understand that consessions had to be made in. Another option could have been to increase the CFM, but that would've meant a price increase as well.

If you don't want a massive chimney wall mount range hood in your kitchen, the Cosmo 668WRCS75 might be what you're looking for. Its canopy made of tempered glass you from feeling claustrophic, as you will retain more open space. Its soft touch LCD screen, generous warranty and very reasonable pricing makes the Cosmo 668WRCS75 an amazing deal.

4. CIARRA CAS75302 (30")

CIARRA CAS75206P

Range Hood Review - CIARRA CAS75302 (30")

The CIARRA CAS75302 is basic chimney wall mount range hood for a reasonable price. In this price range companies will usually cut corners in order to make the range hood as cheap as possible. While the CIARRA CAS75302 lacks some of the fancy extras which are included in the other range hoods in this list, it does what its supposed to do very well. The relatively strong 450 CFM motor will keep your kitchen pollutant free, and does so in a relatively quiet manner. 

The exterior looks clean, modern and is made of a good grade stainless steel. We would have liked to see soft touch buttons rather than regular push buttons, but for this price we can't complain. There is, however, an option for a touch screen model, but this will push the price up into a different price class. In our opinion, the best price-quality ratio is to be found in the basic push button model. Interestingly enough, you will also have a choice between a model with three baffle filters and a model with two mesh filters. Our recommendation would go out to the baffle filter model, due to baffle filters being able to more effectively trap grease.

Overall, the CIARRA CAS75302 is a great choice if you're looking for solid chimney wall-mount range hood for a great price. If you would rather have a relatively low price than lots of fancy options, the CIARRA CAS75302 would be a great choice.

  • 3. BROAN-NuTone BWP2306SS (30")

    Broan-NuTone BWP2304SS

    Range Hood Review - BROAN-NuTone BWP2306SS (30")

    The BROAN-NuTone BWP2306SS is a solid, no fuss chimney range hood. Although it doesn't have many of the extras its competitors have, the BWP2306SS does what its supposed to, and it does it well. Build quality wise, the BWP2306SS is built with the BROAN-NuTone quality we have come to expect and trust. The 430 grade stainless steel exterior is an above average choice, while the design is modern and has a premium feel. Choosing a quality brand name like BROAN-NuTone not only means that you can expect a certain quality, but also that spare parts will be available if needed.

    Understandably, some people prefer buttons over a touch screen. Buttons are generally easier to operate, as every button has one simple function. This is where the BWP2306SS 's touch-sensitive backlit buttons shine. While active, a blue border surrounding the button will light up, so it's immediately visible which button is active. It might not sound impressive, but it makes things so much easier.

    We did find the BROAN-NuTone BWP2306SS to be relatively noisy on its highest setting, especially when compared to competitors. In part, this is due to the large amount of air it moves. Then again, we have found other models with an equal or higher amount of CFM to be a bit more quiet. For us, it's definitely not a deal-killer, but it's better to know it advance.

    If you're looking for a range hood which does what it is supposed to, look no further. Although the BROAN-NuTone BWP2306SS may lack some of the fancy features other contenders in this top 5 have included, this range hood is a reliable workhorse.

    • Simple, but well built
    • Powerful 630 CFM fan
    • Touch-sensitive backlit buttons
    • Strong 5.5W LED lights
    • 430 gauge stainless steel
    • Automatic shut-off
    • Quite noisy on its highest setting
    • Only a 1-year limited warranty

    2. Cosmo 63175S (30")

    Cosmo 63175S

    Range Hood Review - Cosmo 63175S (30")

    The Cosmo 63175S might not be the most powerful or the most feature-rich chimney mount range hood in this list, but it will give you a lot of bang for your buck. This makes the Cosmo 63175S great allrounder, suitable for most home kitchens. And that's what best describes the Cosmo 63175S: a great allrounder. It doesn't really do anything majorly wrong, which is a good thing when it comes to range hoods. The Cosmo 63175S's design is modern and sleek, its power is adequate and it has all the necessary features. 

    One thing Cosmo could improve on is the thickness of its exterior. The Cosmo 63175S is made of 430 grade 20-gauge stainless steel. The grade of stainless steel used is a solid choice. (The higher the second number, the better the quality.) However, we would have loved to see at least 18-gauge stainless steel being used for the Cosmo 63175S. (The lower the number, the thicker the steel.) Then again, if a thinner exterior will keep the price low, it's fine by us.

    Cosmo proudly proclaims that their customer support is located in the good ol' U.S. of A., which is preferrable for a lot of people. Though we have to admit that we haven't had to contact them, having an American customer support makes things easier a lot of the times. The install is quite easy, and quite doable for the average person. The 3-year limited warranty is also quite reasonable. All in all, the Cosmo 63175S will give you a lot of value for your money. A well-deserved number 2 stop in our top 5 wall mount chimney range hoods of 2022.

    • A lot of bang for your buck
    • Convertible to ductless
    • Generous 3-year warranty
    • 430 grade stainless steel
    • Customer support team is based in the USA
    • Automatic shut-off
    • Carbon filters to convert to ductless not included
    • Only 20-gauge stainless steel

    1. IKTCH IKP02R-36 (36")

     IKTCH IKP02R-36

    Range Hood Review - IKTCH IKP02R-36 (36")

    The ITKCH IKP02R-36 comes packed with options. What obviously stands out on paper is its 900 CFM dual motor, which is quite a lot for a home kitchen. (Be sure to provide makeup air.) A dual fan this powerful will capture almost all of the cooking fumes and other aerosolized cooking particles. What stands out in real life is its build quality. The ITKCH IKP02R-36's thick 19-gauge stainless steel feels solid, while its gorgeous rounded corners give off a polished and well-designed look.

    An always welcome feature is the ability to convert your range hood from a ducted to a ductless one. This means that the air which is sucked in by your range hood isn't transported outside, but rather passed through a filter and circulated back into your kitchen. Although this isn't ideal to say the least, for some kitchens it's the only real option outside of having no range hood at all. (Which is even worse.) Please note that converting your ITKCH IKP02R-36 range hood to a ductless one, means that you won't be able to reach the 900 CFM. 

    One of the most interesting features is the gesture control, which means that you can turn the range hood on and off by waving your hand in front of the two sensors. You can also increase and decrease the sucking power by waving your hand from left to right or from right to left respectively. Although it might sound a bit gimmicky, we found it to be really useful. When preparing food you will regularly find yourself with stained hands. With gesture control, you don't have to smudge the LCD touch screen or remote control with your sticky fingers. Depending on the height of your range hood, some people have found the gesture control to be a tad too sensitive. Their range hoods turned on simply by walking by. (We haven't experienced this.) Sadly, there's no way to adjust the sensitivity. You can, however, turn off the gesture control entirely, but this requires some effort and isn't a great solution. (You will have to remove the circuit board on the control panel and cover both sensors with black tape.)

    The ITKCH IKP02R-36 provides a lot of features for a reasonable price. Features like the 900 CFM dual fan, the 19-gauge stainless steel design with rounded corners, the remote control, the LCD touch screen and the gesture control make this chimney mounted range hood an excellent choice. Doing all this for a very reasonable price makes this our take our #1 stop in our top 5 wall mount chimney range hoods of 2022.

    • 19-gauge (1mm) stainless steel
