MERRYKEI: Personally, "no" to La Germania hoods.
There are a lot of US/Euro brands available. Choose 1 with service facilities here.
Go look at models yourself. You gotta love its looks, you will see it daily.
So don't just go calling and canvassing -- go look.
Compare not just by looks though; but compare in terms of "power"/capacity.
Read the installation manual for installation requirements BEFORE you purchase.
That way --you minimize obstacles to installation, & get a better fit of hood to your kitchen area.
Measure distances accurately.
Installation of the hood in my kitchen required the supervision of our mechanical and electrical engineers.
Kasi, we went over the model-prescribed 5meter distance from hood to wall exhaust exit. So, an exhaust fan was installed to assist the hood's exhaust fan push the fumes out. (The space designated for the service kitchen's exhaust hood fit into the installation requirements, so it's installation was simple & straightforward.)
When you purchase, get the installer short-listed/accredited by the hood supplier.
My husband had this house we live in now -- designed to have a partially open basement level. So, our side gate opens to a driveway that leads to an underground garage. All utility rooms/areas & house staff rooms/quarters are on that level. 1 room built like a bunker on that level --- with no windows (no sunlight, always cold), but has a grill door for ventilation -- contains the water pump & tall 4 LPG tanks. Now, my kitchen is on top of that bunker; our service (not dirty, hehe) kitchen is a structure a few meters away, separate from the house. So, the LPG is piped though walls to the 2 kitchens (1 tank per kitchen & 1 reserve tank per = 4).
It is advisable to have 2 kitchens. Both my kitchens are fully equipped (of course, mine has the higher-end stuff, hehe).
My own/family kitchen --- ako lang gumagamit. My stuff are all stainless &/or black -- so madali ma check if the help disobey my order that none of my stuff is used in the service kitchen. I do not cook long-cooking/malansa/strong-smelling/deep frying dishes in my kitchen coz it is in our daily dining room.
I also do not like help loitering in our house. So aside from the heavy-duty cooking in the service kitchen.. That is where the househelp eat, watch tv, loiter around.
My 5yo daughter then complained: why do you call it "dirty", why don't you keep it clean? Pwes, we call it the "service" kitchen, ever since.
We purchased our granite from Italy and China -- but all are Italian granite. Really big slabs, cut on-site here at the yard. Very few local installers are good. We used the installer of Ramon Antonio.
