Could try some magnetic tape with the peel-off backing to hold the thermometer in place, or double-stick a piece of sheet metal from a hardware store to the stainless hood.

I suppose that if one wants a range hood other than those available from Escape, the choice is whether to get the hood anyway so you have the outside vent installed by the Escape factory, or just get the light fixture so there is no hole in the shell... depending on whether the stock outside vent is what you will want later.

The roof-vented alternative makes sense to me, but does require a duct through the cabinet over the hood.

Or forget the magnetic feature and attach it with 3M Command adhesive Picture Hanging Strips. It would have only one place to attach (where ever you put the strips on the hood), but it would be removable.

Good ideas! I might try a 3M Command strip as Brian suggests. We'll see what option looks best when the thermometer arrives.

I think there are 3M Velcro products too.
You'll want it removable to change batteries.

Batteries?? Good call Glenn, hadn't thought about that one.
Not to hijack the original post, but I guess we're finding out that if you leave out a vent hood you can't stick the wireless fridge thermometer to it.

There are plenty of other locations for the wireless to be located.....

Hi: Greg A... My wife's fridge magnet collection will stick to the sink side& front only... not the dinette side. Hmmm. Alf

"Velcro" is a brand name. 3M's Picture Hanging strip is not that brand, and not the same design, but it is removable like Velcro, and much better suited to rigid surfaces (Velcro is for fabric flaps). This product - the one which I linked - is a removable system: you stick one strip on the object, another identical strip to the wall (or hood, or whatever), and the strips latch onto each other...

Those who omit the hood - or go with the stainless version - and are feeling magnet-deprived can add a steel panel to the refrigerator door.
