Funny how words change. "The Hood" means something completely different now.

Kat and I need a new hood for our stove which is 58" wide x 30" deep. We have eight foot ceilings, soapstone counter tops, white subway tile backsplash, simple cabinets below the counters and open shelving above. No appliances in our kitchen are stainless. Some type of integrated pot and pan rack would be nice. Here's the stove in its former home.

I notice the fascination with subway tiles in the US, never liked them myself, I almost expect to see the one with the sign, in blue capitals, "DO NOT SPIT".
Left over of course from when TB was a common enough ailment.

Or built-in and covered with subway tile. Use pewter instead of SS at the intake.I like this idea. Y>

Brilliant. SWIMPAL is a big fan of them. I was with the railways for a time and I'm not a fan...but I think with a little stenciling I could be brought around to the idea. :)

Also easy to clean. I would like a bit of color (cobalt is my preference) in the kitchen but Kat and I agree on nothing here, so its a compromise. . .

Never put anything above your range other then a hood, no matter how pretty polished copper pots and pans might look, even the silly shelf some have behind the range will soon become sticky with grease and become disgusting.

Hood was British. It should have been called Bonnet.

Samuel Hood, 1st Viscount Hood was a British admiral known particularly for his service in the American Revolutionary War and French Revolutionary Wars. He acted as a mentor to Horatio Nelson.

In keeping with the original post, you could make the range hood from Krupp cemented armor.

I don’t like hoods. I opted for a high powered exhaust fan flush to the ceiling. kicks butt. Crafted the whole thing myself using a drum style with a big motor fan mounted in the ceiling that moves gobs of air.

My favorite feature in that photo is the faucet built into the back splash. Very clever idea.

Is that a novelty in the US ?

It is (nearly) standard fare here in Brazil. A great deal of sink tops are granite/marble and it is easier to install fawcets on the back splash (composed of bricks and mortar)

I missed the detail, viz., faucet over the stove top....but this setup would be a complete novelty here, unheard of.

Admittedly it could facilitate some of the cooking chores, while exercising care not to douse the 'burners' with water, specially if the latter are electric (induction-types are duly shielded, inaccessible)

The faucet in the photo in post #9 is installed over the stove top, not in a sink top.


Edited to add: They're called Pot Fillers, and while they aren't rare here, they aren't common either.

I think I'd design the kitchen so there would be a ~12" diameter prep sink right next to the stove,...

A sensible design directive, but only if one could get the missus to go along with it..Y>

Just replaced all the plumbing in our kitchen and in the process, knackered the Formica lining the walls ....replacing with (largish) 30 cm x 30 cm ceramic tiles.

That pewter lining the intake looks distinctive....more (or less) expensive than SS ? Donīt think pewter is freely available here, though

A big powerful oven fan takes your interior air, upon which you've spent money heating or cooling, and moves it outside, so that you can spend more money heating or cooling more air.

But the loss of the ship utterly shocked the Royal Navy. Struck it very hard. Ordinary sailors in their memoirs mention it. And after Repulse and PoW went down, the battleship never really recovered as a concept.

Pewter is more expensive than common (304) stainless steel. A 6" x 12" x 1/8" sheet of certified pewter is $54.46. Stainless is $39.96.

That looks very expensive stainless. I just checked a UK supplier and the price was Ģ20.75 per sq.ft. for 3mm - a shade under 1/8.

True. But in bracket seasons( such as now at my latitude) neither heat not cooling is needed but a fan moves kitchen heat outside since it's not wanted inside.

Yes, that's an old concept of course. In hot climates the oven was located outdoors.

And where I live, in Ontario, Canada, farmhouses had "back kitchen" additions, into which the wood-stove could be moved into during summer. These usually had windows on each side for cross-ventilation, and during the canning season stopped the house itself from turning into an oven.

Affordable enough.... + a shop capable of custom-fabricating said piece.

The only pewter piece in the house is a pint-size mug with a glass bottom, a 1970 XMas present.......keeping at the ready for assailants while downing an ale, or so I was told.

Thank you for that photo and for the quite wonderful link, which I have been exploring.

Perhaps the most obvious thing about HMS Hood is the lack of freeboard. She must always have been a very wet ship, but it's also clear that she didn't have enough reserve bouyancy to permit the addition of the armour that she was well known to lack. You will know better than I but I think this lack of freeboard was characteristic of all RN big gun ships up to (but excluding) HMS Vanguard and it was related to the desired stability and roll rate for gunnery?

I am currently reading the Cambridge History of the Royal Navy which appears to be a compilation of chapters written by various authors. I have not made it to the time of the Hood yet but I believe she was a battle cruiser rather than a battle ship. Hence the lack of overhead armour.

I just got through the chapter dealing with the introduction of steam and the development of ships during the 19th century. Quite a lot of trial and error and some quite tragic failures due to poor design.

Andrew Craig-Bennett

I recall reading somewhere that a modification was made to HMS Renown, the surviving sister of HMS Repulse and the last battle cruiser in the RN, in great secrecy and in a screaming hurry following a preliminary report of the committee of enquiry into the loss of HMS Hood. Something to do with vent arrangements which were not flash proof and which should have been.

Interesting thread, war ships and kitchen appliances.

Leave it to Mister Grammer / spelling /(AKA Donn) to drift it from the intended subject which seems to have been the war ship HMS Hood. Donn would be more know to have castrated a poster who attempted to drift a thread , rather than to have been the "drifter".
Maybe due to Paul Pless being known to be loosey goosey with his capital letter usage Donn felt it was permissible / do-able to drift "The Hood" to The hood?

Pot fillers are rare in my experience , and rarely used in the two houses I've been involved with. Nice concept in the kitchen that has "everything". Just one more thing to pay for and maintain in reality , but sure if they want to pay for it , why not!
