Suggestion for Cooker Hood (Low noise High Extraction)

Hi All,

I need some suggestion for a powerful , low noise Cooker Hood (preferably with the chimney) that can extract all the food smell as well as grease from the Kitchen.

Can we install an additional extractor fan in kitchen on the opposite wall to the cooker hood?

Sugegstion for the 60 cm wide will be much appreciated

Thanks in advance.

    If a pipe run would not be practical any hood on low should be quiet and filter the grease, the filter should probably be changed at least yearly, And a good wall extractor will be fine for the steam.

    Hi Mazibee.
    I'm not sure that having a second extractor will helps, at least not during the cooking. I think you should focus on maximising extraction at its source, and then possibly you could turn on a second one if you really feel a part of the kitchen is being neglected.
    Can't offer model suggestions, but perhaps consider one with a larger - wider - canopy than your hob? Eg, 900mm wide if you have a 600mm hob.
    Another factor when choosing an extractor is noise, because you'll be able to run the quieter ones at their max speed without it being unpleasant - it's astonishing how noisy some can be. 
    I think, as in shower rooms, the best extraction policy is to have the extraction as close to the source as possible (duh), and to allow a gentle wall of replenishing air to sweep up from the opposite end of the room. So, room doors either shut or slightly ajar, especially if they are near the opposite ends. Certainly don't leave a door open if it's half way up or closer to the hob/shower.
    Largely theory, of course.
  • We had an AEG one and it was so quiet and excellent. They are like £800 now though last time I looked.

    You'll have to scour the internet looking at noise levels and amount of air moved.

    If you want high extraction and low noise in the kitchen then a ducted extractor with an inline fan installed remotely, near the exhaust vent (e.g., in a roof space) rather than at the kitchen end, could be an option worth considering. You certainly used to be able to get filtered extract hoods without a fan for use with remote fans, and presumably these still exist, but they're not seen so much as it's easier to just buy a single unit with the filters, fan, lights etc.

    IMO, in a good extractor hood the noise is mainly produced by the air flow, not by the motor/fan. As a result, a remote fan will make a small difference while adding a lot of complexity.

     Thanks everone for the replies

    I have checked on the Currys website and have shorlisted  these 2 (Russell Hobbs and other one is Grundig) due to the low noise levels and the extractionb rate



    Russell Hobbs Maximum extraction rate  650 m3/h Noise level ----- (Minimum: 60 dB(A) - Maximum: 71 dB(A)
    Grundig Maximum extraction rate425 m³/h (kit sold separately) ------ Noise level 60 dB(A)


    Any suggestions on these two?

    Has anyone used and can share expereince?

    Is there any benefit of angled cooker hoods as compared to the ones I have selected?

    Thanks in advance














  • I don't have experience with these, but I shortlisted the Russell Hobbs one when I was looking for a new one as it had excellent reviews on noise levels.
