The Broan 413623, Cavaliere SV218B2 and Cavaliere SV218D-I are the best range hoods as of 2015, according to Consumer Search. The most affordable option is the Broan, which sells for about $50.
The Broan 413623 has a very simple design featuring a light and fan; it is easy to install since there is no ductwork installation. This range hood is quiet, performs well and comes in a range of colors and widths.

There are also touchpad controls and dimmable lights.
