The Best UP27IxxSB series under-cabinet range hood was built to withstand the test of time. It’s solid, seamless-weld construction and 20-guage brushed stainless steel finish make the UP27I42SB a rare bird indeed. Best fuses performance and good taste almost perfectly with the UP27IxxSB series hood.
The UP27I42SB comes fully loaded with an integrated internal blower motor that can produce up to 700 CFM of ventilation power. A control panel, located just under the lip of the hood, allows you access to the variable speed options of the blower motor. When running at full power, the UP27I42SB produces about 8.5 Sones worth of sound. Unlike other range hoods in its class, the Best UP27I42SB incorporates a new type of filter technology known as evolution. The evolution filter incorporates traditional stainless steel baffle design and mesh filtration to maximize grease and particle separation. Like other filter systems, the evolution filter can be cleaned with warm soap and water.
The Best UP27I42SB offers up to four fan speeds, allowing you full control over its operation. The rotary control knobs featured on the hood’s main control panel come with a memory feature. Best includes two 50 w halogen bulbs on their 30” and 36” models, and four 50 w halogen bulbs on their 42” and 48” models. The UP27I42SB also comes stocked with a heat sentry thermostat. The thermostat monitors the heat output of your cook top, and adjusts your blower motor accordingly. If a flare up occurs, or a sudden burst of heat enters the hood, the heat sentry thermostat will automatically increase blower capacity to full power for maximum ventilation.
The Best UP27I42SB range hood series is available in any of the following four sizes: 30”, 36”, 42” and 48”. In order to maximize installation versatility, Best makes it possible for the hood to vent exhaust in either a horizontal or vertical direction. The UP27I42SB can also be configured for “Ductless” installation with the purchase of an additional recirculation kit.
