Can you recommend a kitchen range hood exhaust fan that is more than just a metal flapper?

Something that actually closes tightly and has some insulation value?
Thank you.

    This topic comes up now and then at GBA -- and as far as I know, no one has yet come up with a recommended product that satisfies the needs of most users.

    Here is a link to a recent thread discussing the same question: Looking for good quality wall cap with backdraft damper for kitchen exhaust fan - recommendations?
