Kitchen exhaust fan
April 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I saw a combination pendant light/circulating fan over a kitchen range on an HGTV show. Unfortunately the clip was from Great Britain, and no sources were listed for the show. Any knowledge of this product?

Futuro Futuro Kitchen Range Hoods
Yes, it probably was the Elica Star (pictured).

However, this hood has only a 300 CFM blower, which is not sufficient for any type of serious cooking, and it's recirculating *only* - cannot be ducted to the outside. The recirculating filters usually reduce airflow by 30-40%, which is why we always recommend to have the range hood ducted to the outside.

Also, cleaning that convoluted "crystal" surface must be an exercise in patience... This is a design for looks, not for cooks.

More sensible suggestion: the Futuro Futuro "Murano Collection" range hoods, which have illuminated glass designs, look spectacular, and are powered by a 940-CFM blower, offering 3X the performance.

Here are a couple of examples to give you an idea. To see the entire lineup (30+ models), please visit
