Small but beautiful, the rest appeal of the Palermo is how it manages to showcase contemporary European aesthetics in such a tight space. The Palermo model is operated by touch controls, a sensitive, low-profile button interface that insures easy cleaning and even easier operation. The hood comes equipped with six different speed settings for just the right amount of ventilation for the task at hand. When engaged, the hood will automatically power-down after 15 minutes, insuring that all remaining odors will be efficiently vented from the kitchen. Also this hood is equipped with all-halogen lighting to illuminate the cooking surface with a clean, long lasting and bright quality of light. To add to their appeal, Zephyr hoods are probably the quietest units available, with a loudness rating of only 6 sones. Striking angles and elegant curves create a dramatic visual presence, but belie an economical design-making it the perfect fit for less spacious, modern kitchens.
