Cooker hoods

Things to consider when choosing your new cooker hood

Fittings and measurements

Your cooker hood should be at least as wide as the hob below it. The available widths are:

  1. Below 60cm
  2. 60cm-69cm
  3. 70cm-90cm
  4. 90cm+

Types of cooker hood

Cooker hoods come in seven different types. Canopy, Integrated, and Telescopic models are built into a cupboard, while Chimney and Visor hoods are fitted to a wall. For those with a kitchen island, Ceiling-Mounted hoods are a viable option. Finally, Downdraft hoods rise up from your kitchen worktop.
