READING, Pa.,  Jan. 23, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Prizer-Painter Stove Works, Inc.,
manufacturer of  BlueStar professional cooking equipment for the home,
introduces  Prizer Hoods,  a stunning line of professionally-inspired luxury
kitchen hoods, crafted for kitchen designers, architects and homeowners who
demand cutting-edge design and state-of-the-art performance. 


The new  Prizer Hoods  merges the 45 years of leading design expertise of
Independent, Inc. with Prizer-Painter Stove Works' 133-year-heritage of quality
custom manufacturing technology.  With stunning and fully customizable designs,
using a wide range of metal options, and offering a dazzling palette of colors,
trims and finishes, Prizer Hoods makes the ultimate statement in any kitchen. 
From rich old-world, commanding styles to modern hood designs with smooth,
sweeping contours, every hand-crafted Prizer Hood offers enduring elegance and
engaging style customized to the buyer's individual taste.   

"Since the kitchen is one of the more popular places to gather in the home,
range hoods are evolving and becoming a focal point. From artistic to
deep-rooted designs with flair, unique statement hoods are appearing in many
settings, whether contemporary or traditional.  And advanced manufacturing
technology allows realization of unmatched performance," said  Michael Trapp,
president, Prizer Hoods.

Infinite Custom Design and Style
When a dream kitchen calls for fully customizable and distinctive silhouettes,
Prizer Hoods delivers a uniquely styled product that can be tailor-made to fit
any kitchen layout or design preference.  Prizer Hoods has the capability to
create a  custom shape  for each customer's taste, and each hood can be formed
from virtually any metal and painted in any of hundreds of colors and finishes. 
This unique approach to kitchen hood design empowers designers and architects to
reenergize the kitchen space with a personalized design statement.

Prizer Hoods' world-class design team has a combined 100 years of hood design
experience.  Custom hoods are created by the design and drafting department,
whose main concern is attention to the detail and precise specifications of
architects, designers, contractors, and home owners.  Restoration services are
also available for customers' existing hoods to revitalize current hoods and
breathe new life into a kitchen.  

Professional Power
"While design is critical, customers also desire a hood with professional
performance," said Trapp. "With Prizer Hoods, there is no need to choose between
form and function. These are powerful hoods, with blowers moving air at rates
from about 300 to 1400 cubic feet per minute or more, and with quiet operation
providing true restaurant-quality performance at home."  

Each hood is handcrafted with precision on state-of-the-art equipment to ensure
consistency and quality.  Built to meet professional standards inside and out, 
Prizer Hoods  combines high-gauge metals and commercial-style baffle filtration
systems so anyone can cook like a pro.  High heat sensors provide automatic heat
moderation for seamless high heat cooking.  Each hood accommodates top or rear
discharge for convenience and accepts a variety of fans to meet the demands of
any kitchen.   

Prizer Hoods offers ventilation hoods for all applications, with quiet

* Under cabinets: Ventilation options for under cabinet installation to fit
style or space requirements.  
* Wall mounts: A wall-mounted hood can be the clear choice for style and
* Island mounts: If a cooktop or range takes center stage in the kitchen, an
island mount ventilation system can be the best choice.  
* Recirculating: When exterior venting is not possible, recirculating
ventilation systems are the solution.  
* Outdoor BBQ cooking:  The finishing touch for an outdoor kitchen, these hoods
make fresh-air entertaining even fresher.  
* Liners and Inserts: The latest hood technology is available for custom hood

Independent's Designs and Prizer's Quality Craftsmanship
Prizer has built upon and expanded the hood designs manufactured by Independent,
Inc. following Prizer's 2012 acquisition of Independent's designs, technology
and manufacturing assets.  Independent had been a leader in designing and making
luxury hoods since 1947.  Since 1880, Prizer has built a  heritage of
craftsmanship  - first with a full-line of residential and commercial coal
ranges, hot water heaters, furnaces and heating stoves at the company's factory
in  Pennsylvania. In 2002, Prizer introduced handcrafted, restaurant-quality
ranges for the residential market under the  BlueStar  brand name. Constructed
of the highest-quality commercial grade stainless steel, and with specialized
technologies such as the UltraNova 22,000 BTU power burner and the 130°F gentle
simmer burner, BlueStar delivers true restaurant performance to the home chef. 
The combination of 45 years of design leadership from Independent Inc. and 133
years of Prizer-Painter's manufacturing technology produces unique hoods with
lasting value.
