Add Radiance to Kitchen with Sun, Part of the New BEST Sorpresa Generation II Collection

June 21, 2013

HARTFORD, Wis. – Just as the sun is the center of our solar system, the new Sun range hood by BEST® offers homeowners the ability to make their range hood the artistic center of their kitchen. Sun is one of four exciting range hoods that comprise the BEST Sorpresa® Generation II Collection. Available in a white or black glass backdrop with a stainless steel disc center, Sun is a wall-mounted range hood that creates a dramatic centerpiece on any kitchen wall.

“Sun is a range hood that truly echoes its name,” says Brian Wellnitz, marketing manager, kitchen ventilation, BEST. “The range hood is a physical reminder of the sun, and it can brighten the kitchen day after day.”

Sun is available for both ducted and non-ducted applications. Perimeter induction is built into the design of Sun, allowing this range hood to capture smoke and odor more effectively. Sun is ideal for installation above 30- to 36-inch-wide small gas, electric or induction cooktops. Although the hood is designed for recirculation, flues are optional for a ducted application — homeowners can easily add an optional flue cover.

Sorpresa, which means “surprise” in Italian, takes on shapes and designs that immediately become the focal point of any kitchen, while still delivering the world-class ventilation technology and function expected from a BEST product.

“BEST is proud to continue offering the option of high-end design to professionals and homeowners,” continues Wellnitz. “We are confident these new designs will impress our loyal customers.”

To help customers envision how Sun will fit into a variety of kitchen designs, BEST offers a convenient Sorpresa Visualizer tool, available on, which enables designers and their clients to mix and match these unique hood designs in a variety of kitchen styles.
