Hotpoint delivers style and function with this stainless steel and glass chimney extractor hood. It would make a statement and be a modern addition to any kitchen.
How many speeds does it have?
This hood has three power levels to choose from, so you can remove any developing odours quickly. There is also a booster level for when you need extra oomph to clear the kitchen of unwanted smells.
What controls does it have?
It comes with electric push buttons for the power levels and the lights.
How many grease filters does it have?
It has two washable grease filters, so you can be sure that cooking residue is removed and not sticking around your kitchen. It also has a carbon filter to make sure every smell is removed.
How noisy is this hood?
It’s not that noisy – at its top extraction level it runs at 61 decibels. To put that into context, a normal conversation between two people is 60 to 70 decibels. There is also a Silence Button that prevents the extractor from interrupting conversation.
How high above the cooker should it sit?
Ideally it needs to be installed so the bottom of it is no less than 500mm above the hob.
Do I need anything else with this cooker hood?
Yes – if you’re venting externally you will need to get a ducting kit. This is a tube that allows unclean air, containing grease and odours to be extracted and removed from your kitchen.
