The Zephyr ZML-E42BG island range hood series is as intriguingly beautiful as it is powerful. Unlike other range hoods, the Zephyr ZML-E42BG brings a softer touch to the island cook top. A curved glass plate accompanies the brushed stainless steel chassis, giving the Zephyr ZML-E42BG a comfortable, relaxed feeling that often escapes other “classic” design range hoods–sophistication and elegance are two qualities that definitely define the Zephyr ZML-E42BG.

The decibel suppression system included on the Zephyr ZML-E42BG utilizes advanced technology to keep things quiet in your kitchen without sacrificing ventilation power. At full power, the Zephyr ZML-E42BG only produces 6.5 Sones due to the revolutionary brushless DC motor that produces 750 CFM (included with the hood.) A 6 blower speed control panel allows you high resolution precision when operating the hood, ensuring energy efficiency and the perfect amount of ventilation. Dishwasher safe aluminum mesh filters are also included with the Zephyr ZML-E42BG. Leave the harsh degreasing chemicals under the sink, because all you’ll need to stay current with filter cleaning is soap and water.

The Zephyr ZML-E42BG features an electronic LCD control panel form which you’re given access to 6 fan speeds, a “delay off” program and lighting options. The Zephyr ZML-E42BG features a beautiful dual level bloom HD LED lighting array, capable of producing an impressive amount of illumination for not only your island range or cook top, but the surrounding counter tops as well. The “delay off” feature can be set to automatically deactivate the hood after five minutes of unsupervised, continuous operation.

The Zephyr ZML-E42BG series range hood is available in two sizes—36”, 42”. The Zephyr Europa Milano series range hood is also available in the same sizes. The entire collection can be converted to a ductless system with the addition of an air recirculation kit (sold separately.) The glass plate can be substituted for either a stainless steel plate or grey glass (special order only.)
