Hi there, I just bought a wolf srt364c, 36", 4 sealed-burner, with infrared charbroiler grill. It's currently being held at our retailers warehouse till our remodel is ready. I've read on another thread here, and many other places, mixed reviews about the charbroilers but I know it's what I want.
My concern is the ventilation. Searing can create a good amount of smoke and vapour. I want to know if there's more advice re the range hood.
We are looking at several others right now, inserts, and are trying to shave some cost off our huge reno bill by not going with Wolf hoods (seem over-priced). Looking currently at a Best , PIK33 (36"), with a 900 CFM external blower, 6 plus sones ~ $1328, and another Best, CP47E362SB with 900 cfm ext blower 6 plus sones. ~ $1828. Also looking at the Faber, inca pro 38 (1100) cfm internal fan, 3.5-6.5 sones, for around ~$1899. Finally, the Tornado II, 38", 1000 cfm. (8 sones max) ~ $1778. Any help from all of you would be appreciated.
They each have their own little features. My concerns is to have one that is easiest to keep clean, that is as quiet as is realistically possible, and one that canautomatically shut off or increase speed through sensors.
