XtremeAir under cabinet mount range hoods are crafted from 19 gauge stainless steel in satin finish; they also come equipped with dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filters. The stainless steel used in the hoods construction is austenitic; this means that the steel is non-magnetic, which prevents the attraction of dust particles to its surface and as a result it prevents the buildup of gunk overtime. Another feature of the austenitic steel that is worth mentioning is its high rust resistance; this is a welcome characteristic especially since the range hoods are exposed to extremely moist conditions in kitchen environments.
The motor used in XtremeAir range hoods is ultra-quiet and capable of moving up to 900 cubic feet of air per minute. There are 4 preset blower speeds that are controlled by touch sensitive buttons; the current blower speed setting is displayed on the LCD panel. The noise levels produced by the blower range from 35 dB to 67 dB; this can be compared to a noise ranging from a quiet conversation (35 dB) to a normal conversation (60 dB).
The under cabinet range hood models can only vent air through ducts that lead outside. It needs to be noted that they are not capable of recycling the air within the room. They have an 8" duct vent centrally located on the top.
