Choosing the right hood

The required airflow for your extractor normally depends on the size of kitchen and also the type of cooking. The correct airflow for a extractor can be easily worked out, simply multiply the volume of the room by ten and you will obtain the ideal airflow for your kitchen.
For example, for a kitchen size of 4m x 4m with a height of 2.7m: (4 x 4 x 2.7)x 10 = 432, therefore any product with the airflow of 432 m3/h or more should provide efficient ventilation.

The extractor should cover at least the width of the hob. For induction hobs we recommend an extractor that is wider than the hob surface, this is as the vapours will dissipate outwards when compared to a gas hob where vapours rise vertically in a candle flame-like shape.

To achieve the best results when using which ever extractor you choose, we recommend switching on the extractor 15 minutes before cooking and to leave it running 15 minutes after you have finished. This will ensure that the air in the kitchen is being circulated before cooking commences and the air continues to be being cleaned for a short while after, giving you the best results.

We’ve designed one for every kind of kitchen. Different colours, different finishes, and plenty of functionality.
