What is a powerful cooker hood?

Extraction power is measured in cubic meters per hour. All BEST cooker hoods mentioned below have an extraction rate of at least 800 m3/h – making them suitable for most kitchen installations.

How to maximise extraction power

  1. Choose a cooker hood with an extraction rate that suits your kitchen. Find out how to calculate the extraction rate you require here.
  2. If possible have your cooker hood ducted out. A hood in ducted mode will extract better than the same hood in recirculation mode. Find out more about the differences between ducting out and recirculation.
  3. Use the correct size ducting. All BEST cooker hoods require 150mm (or 6”) ducting.
  4. Make sure your ducting run is as short as possible and have as few bends as possible.
  5. Switch on your cooker hood just before you start cooking, because it starts the air flow.

The technology of powerful hoods

The extraction rate of a cooker hood is mainly determined by the quality of the motor, the shape of the hood, and the grease filters. Moreover, perimeter extraction increases the pressure of the air flow because the air is forced through a small gap along the edge of the filters. This higher pressure of the air flow means that the extraction rate increases and more air is removed from your kitchen.

For ducted hoods, the extraction rate is affected by the ducting run (see above). Ductless hoods will have a lower extraction rate than the ducted version because the charcoal filters reduces the air flow.

Noise levels of powerful cooker hoods

You don’t want your hood to be so noisy that you don’t want to use it, do you?

Thanks to Silent Tech the most powerful BEST hoods are also extremely quiet. The noise level is reduced so much that on the lower speeds the hood is so quiet that you might think the hood isn’t on!

Silent Tech reduces noise levels thanks to sophisticated sound proofing, three-dimensional wave filters and a three-phase motor which saves energy, too.
