Appliances Connection would like to introduce a revolutionary Forte wall mount hood which truly represents their determination to create household appliances that embrace both elegant design and high-tech innovation—the Forte COLLEGARE36. Not just an air removal device, it is fully Bluetooth compatible, allowing you to connect your phone to the hood itself so you can enjoy both music and conversation while cooking.
First off, you may ask yourself, “How does a range hood work?” Basically, the job of a range hood is to remove heat, airborne grease, fumes, smoke, and odors that may emanate from your range cooktop or oven. It does this with an interior fan that draws in the hair above the range and expels it, either through a duct to the outdoors or through a filter back into the kitchen. There are many styles of range hoods with an even wider assortment of features and conveniences. And with the COLLEGARE36, Forte has created a premier smart range hood for the modern home.
Crafted in Italy from stainless steel, the COLLEGARE36 has everything you could need to keep your cooking area fresh. This 36-inch wide, chimney-style hood delivers a powerful 560 CFM with four fan speeds to completely clear your kitchen of any polluted air, resulting in a far more pleasant environment to work in. It also has two brilliant LED lights that fully illuminates your cooking surface. And while the hood is built for ducted air expulsion, it can be converted to recirculate the air instead (recirculating kit included).
But this smart hood has even more to offer when it comes to modern amenities, such as:
i-Hood – The COLLEGARE 36 is equipped with both a digital radio and Bluetooth features, allowing you to connect wirelessly with your smart device and listen to your favorite music through the hood’s speakers while cooking. It also has a pair of integrated microphones, enabling you to answer phone calls using a simple one-touch function and converse hands-free as you prepare food.
Adjustable Delayed Shut Off Switch – This allows you to program the blower to keep operating after you leave the kitchen and shut down when you want.
Light Indicators – The COLLEGARE36 senses when maintenance is necessary and alerts you automatically. It has one alert for grease filter maintenance, which is of the utmost importance since a clean filter prevents odors from built-up grease deposits and protects the inner components of the hood. And if you set up the hood for recirculation, it will alert you when the active charcoal filter needs replacing, which should be done regularly to keep the air in your kitchen clean and odor-free.
If you’re planning on remodeling your entire kitchen, switching out your range oven, or even if you just want to step up to a better standard of range hood at a surprisingly affordable price, please consider the COLLEGARE36 as a commendable choice.
