Downdraft Ventilation Options from Faber

Faber earns Consumers Digest Best Buy

Faber Consumers Digest

Scirocco range hood by Faber is again a “Best Buy” winner in the range hood category.

The Scirocco won the Mid-range selection best buy in range hoods for the second time in a row. The magazine defines the Mid-range category as:

“A product that offers many popular features and good performance at a price below the top of the line for the product category.”

Faber hoods always have good value across the entire product line. To have a magazine like Consumers Digest reinforce this concept is very encouraging and exciting.

Faber 8" Downdraft

The Scirocco offers an 8″ automatic rise plenum that comes up and down with the touch of a button and reveals the stainless mesh dishwasher safe grease filters.

The Scirocco offers innovative safety features including the following:

  1. Microswitches behind the grease filters that prevent the hood from moving when filters are removed
  2. A spring loaded / removable Stainless steel top strip that “pops off” when an object gets in the way of the hood

Faber always pays attention to the smallest details such as: to prevent the hood from moving while being cleaned, the button to engage the hood must be held down for a “long push” to prevent inadvertent operation.

With an included 500 cfm blower in the internal 30″ and 36″ hood, multiple venting options, a brand-less top strip for mixing & matching with all cook top brands and an optional 900 cfm remote blower with the safety features only seen in competitors with higher price tags; the Scirocco delivers the true performance and value consumers seek today.
