The Kobe CH191 series under cabinet range hood boasts a stunning, seamless design and a beautiful 18 gauge stainless steel finish. Unlike other under cabinet hoods, the CH191 replaces hard, sharp lines with smooth rounded corners—a compliment rarely attempted by other range hood manufacturers. The CH191’s nouveau design makes it the perfect candidate for just about any kitchen layout.

The CH191 comes fully equipped with a 760 CFM internal blower motor with Vertical Turbine Impellers. The motor is capable of operating at six different speeds, which increases the CH191’s versatility as an invaluable kitchen tool. Kobe offers their unique “QuietMode” technology with the CH191 series range hoods. When QuietMode is engaged, the CH191 produces about 300 CFM of air displacement at a noise level of exactly 1.0 Sones. When operating at full capacity, the noise level only increases to about 4.7 Sones, allowing you to easily converse with guests or family as the CH191 clears your kitchen of smoke, grease, steam and unwanted odors. The Kobe CH191 comes with a pair of dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filters which efficiently trap rouge particles which rise from your range top or stove.

Kobe has spared no expense on when it comes to the CH191’s impressive technology. A state-of-the-art LED display system gives you access to the hoods six blower speeds, lighting options and power options. The CH191 is one of the few contemporary range hoods to offer full LED lighting as well. Not only are LED lights extremely efficient, but they provide a type of longevity that is unrivaled. Kobe offers two 3 watt LED bulbs in a tri-level lighting configuration on the 30” and 36” models of the CH191, and three 3 watt LED bulbs on the 42” and 48” models.

The Kobe CH191 is extremely versatile. It can either be mounted in an under-cabinet configuration, or a wall mount style with the optional duct cover.

The blower control includes 4 different speeds. At its lowest setting, the Kobe RA9436SQB produces a noise level of approximately 1.5 sones. When the blower is operating at its full 760 CFM, the hood emits about 4.5 sones worth of noise. The Kobe RA9436SQB comes loaded with two dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filters. The baffle filter design is an important part of trapping grease and other contaminants that may be in the air near your stove top. They’re easy to remove and clean, often requiring little more than soap and warm water.

The Kobe RA9436SQB comes complete with 2 – 20w halogen lights. The soft lighting produced by the hood is perfect for any kitchen area. If you plan on leaving the room after eating, the Kobe RA9436SQB comes complete with a smart delay shut-off system.
