BEST® to debut concept range hoods that are both fashion-forward and functional at 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show

HARTFORD, Wis. – Straight from one of the world’s top fashion meccas, BEST® is featuring all new Italian-designed range hoods at KBIS 2017 in Orlando, Fla. Jan. 10 to 12.  The prototypes completely change the range hood industry, furthering BEST’s dedication to sleek lines, cutting edge design and powerful capture.

When it comes to designing a dream kitchen, you shouldn’t have to choose between a functional space and incorporating sophisticated, chic design. Created with versatility and fashion-forward consumers in mind, BEST’s concept range hoods allow you to make a bold, stylish statement or achieve an unobstructed, discreet layout.

“We are really excited to showcase these revolutionary new designs at KBIS,” said Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, BEST kitchen ventilation. “These range hoods provide designers and consumers a great deal of flexibility when creating the perfect cook station. It is really about achieving the look you want without ever having to compromise kitchen air quality you have come to expect from BEST. We are proud to say that our newest concepts, many of which remain hidden and out of sight until you turn them on, give homeowners the freedom to have a truly open concept kitchen.”

Featured at the show will be:

SLOT, a new downdraft range hood that offers a captivating design and is invisible until a simple touch unleashes powerful capture and revolutionizes the entire kitchen. It is perfect for open kitchen designs so homeowners can have unobstructed views while cooking.

 

WINDY has a minimalistic design that is the perfect combination of linear shape and subdued perspective, to allow open vistas in any kitchen. In addition to its one of a kind design, WINDY can be controlled by an app on a user’s smartphone, allowing the homeowner to be in control anytime, from anywhere.

In keeping with BEST’s fashion-forward design aesthetic, and creating downdraft range hoods on islands that don’t block beautiful kitchen views, BEST will also feature the revolutionary Cattura downdraft which launched in 2016. Cattura offers design-focused homeowners a high-performance range hood with a downdraft design. The unique, patented VERTEX Complete Capture Design allows the Cattura downdraft to rival chimney range hoods at capturing emissions. Top performance with the Cattura downdraft also means quiet performance. Though powerful, the Cattura downdraft is up to 35 percent quieter than other downdrafts, which is the best in its category*. It also features an efficient LED light bar that illuminates the entire cooking surface, even pots on the front burners. When fully raised the unit reaches 18 inches and can capture emissions from pots of all sizes, located in any part of the cooktop.
