The Prestige PC48240 pyramid-style chimney wall mount range hood brings a new flavor to modern kitchen décor. Its elegant design reminisces of traditional European styling without leaving its strong, American roots behind. Its beautiful #304 brushed stainless steel exterior gives the Prestige PC48240 a stunning aesthetic edge as it stands out from other hoods in its price range.
The Prestige PC48240, as with other professional range hoods, does not come setup with a pre-installed blower motor—it must be purchased separately. Fortunately, Prestige has left you with a variety of choices in that regard. The Prestige PC48240 can support an internal motor, in-line motor or an external venting motor. Depending on how much power you need from your kitchen, you can pick from a 600 CFM internal blower motor all the way up to a 2000 CFM external vent motor. No matter which you choose, prestige has given you full access to blower power and speed with a conveniently located control panel. The Prestige PC48240 features dishwasher-safe, stainless steel baffle filters and a grease trap system.
The Prestige PC48240 features fully-dimmable 60 watt halogen lamps with 2 bulbs in the 30”, 36”, and 42” models and 3 halogen lamps in the 48”, 54”, 60”, and 66” models. In order to preserve the aesthetic of the Prestige PC48240, the designers placed the variable speed control panel just under the lip of the hood. Not only can you access blower speeds from here, but also control light levels, allowing you to adjust the amount of light produced by the hood.
