Do you prefer touch sensitive controls or knob controls on a range hood? Many kitchen appliances – including stoves, microwaves, and even toasters – come equipped with touch sensitive controls. They certainly have a lot going for them.
Touch sensitive controls are sleek and fit perfectly with a modern kitchen decor. They’re also easy to keep clean. A simple wipe is all it takes to eliminate fingerprints and other stains. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine that a digital touch sensitive control pad can be as reliable and durable over the life of the range hood as a knob, but it can be. Today’s touch sensitive control pads have evolved into well-made components of a great range hood.
Despite the popularity of a sleek, modern kitchen look, knobs on range hoods (and other appliances) are still as common as ever. Knobs are just as reliable and durable as touch sensitive control pads. Though they do require a bit more cleaning effort. Dirt can sometimes become lodged behind the knob. Otherwise, one of the features that people love most about knobs is the feel. Some people appreciate having something to grab on to. They even like the “click” sound that some knobs make as they turn.
Which do you prefer – touch sensitive controls or knobs?
