KOBE CHX9130SQB-1 Brillia review
This specific model is an under cabinet range hood. It is made to blend in with whichever cabinets you currently have. The design will look good in a variety of environments. No matter if you have a modern kitchen, or a vintage one, it looks good regardless.
As far as functionality goes, there’s a 680 cubic feet per minute internal blower. This should be sufficient for most medium to high ventilation requirements. There’s the QuietMode function mentioned above, which results in an extremely quiet range hood. You get a choice of three speeds, with mechanical buttons to select with. The baffle filters are dish washer safe, and you can merely wash them instead of constantly replacing them. To sum things up, this specific model will keep your energy bill low, yet fulfill all of your venting needs and requirements. You will get rid of odors and smoke in the air in no time.
KOBE RAX2130SQB-1 Brillia review
Another under cabinet range hood, this one is a bit more powerful than the previous one. The design is similar, though, and stainless steel construction lets it blend in and look good. And, this is all done no matter which type of kitchen you have as well.
When I say more powerful, I mean 750 cubic feet per minute motor. High ventilation requirements should be absolutely no issue here. Three speeds are selectable here as well, by using the mechanical push buttons. You again, as with all KOBE products, get the QuietMode function. The removable filters are here too.
Finishing up the KOBE range hood review
As you’ve noticed in the two mini-reviews above, KOBE makes some seriously good products. They are often a touch more expensive than the competition. However, the price difference is absolutely worth it. If you’re considering them, you will be hard pressed to find something better, and at a lower price.
