Cooker hoods buying guide

8 minute read |

When it comes to buying appliances, it may have been some time in-between purchases and there are new features to consider. We have created a buying guide to help you select the right cooker hood for you and your home.

Introduction

When it comes to cooking, we can produce a lot of different smells or smoke and fumes depending on the dish. These may linger in the air or discolor your cabinetry, as well as have negative effects on your health. There are several different styles of cooker hood and ultimately it comes down to the layout of your kitchen and venting options.

Choose a kitchen hood based on the size of your space

Space to install kitchen hood

When it comes to selecting your cooker hood, you may be limited to what area you have above your stove to use. Before you start looking at models, measure the space so you can narrow down your selection criteria.

Choose a kitchen hood that suits your stove

You ideally want a cooker hood that is exactly the same width as your stove or slightly larger. As it will need to be able to easily extract smoke and fumes whilst you are cooking. If your cooker hood is too small, you will find that it’ll struggle to keep up and this may cause lingering scents and fumes, or for your smoke alarm to go off.

Which types of cooker hoods to use?

Design & other considerations

kinh nghiem mua may hut mui bep electrolux 4.jpg

White, natural or dark stainless steel

If you are looking to choose a cooker hood that is more on the show than an integrated model, you should consider what finish will complement the rest of your appliance choices and the overall aesthetic of your kitchen. You have the option of three finishes; there is a traditional white or a modern update natural or dark stainless steel.

Choose from one brand

When upgrading your kitchen, one thing to note is, just as there are 52 shades of white, the same goes for appliance finishes. For the best results, purchase your appliances from one brand to make sure all your appliances seamlessly compliment one another.

Ducted or recirculating

You have two circulation options when choosing a range hood, ducted or recirculating. A ducted cooker hood means it will remove the air out of your kitchen and send it outside via piping.

If you can't send your cooker hood fumes outside, you will need to look for a recirculating cooker hood which recirculates the air via a filter and cleans the air before sending it back into the kitchen. However, recirculating is not as powerful as ducted, as you will need to replace filters more regularly

Power or extraction rate

kinh nghiem mua may hut mui bep electrolux 3.jpg

When looking at the power or extraction rate, it is measured in m³/hour. The higher the rate, the greater the amount of air that will be removed from your kitchen. You will need to consider the type of cooking you do; if you do a lot of wok cooking, you should consider a high extraction rate of over 700m³/hour.

Noise

Suppose your home has an open plan living design where cooker hood noise whilst cooking may impact others who are watching TV. In that case, you might want to consider looking at a cooker hood with the ability for its motor installed in the roof rather than it being with the cooker hood unit in the house. By choosing a cooker hood with this design, you will significantly reduce the noise in your kitchen.

Filters

Whilst all cooker hoods come with filters, they are not the same filters across every cooker hood. Most ducted models will have Aluminum filters. These need to be cleaned by hand or in a dishwasher regularly to ensure your cooker hood is working as hard as it can be.

Carbon filters in recirculating cooker hoods are used to remove impurities from the air. Once they have reached the end of their lifespan, you will need to replace them with a brand-new carbon filter.
