How appe­tiz­ing the hol­i­day cake looks, and what a mag­i­cal aro­ma comes from it! How­ev­er, not all “edi­ble” smells are so pleas­ant, so we strive to get rid of them. The eas­i­est way- ven­ti­late the room by open­ing the win­dow, but cold and even less pleas­ant “fla­vors” can come from the street. There­fore, in mod­ern kitchens, hoods are strug­gling with fumes. Our arti­cle is ded­i­cat­ed to them.

Fragrances.netFaberSci­en­tists have proven that strong odors have a neg­a­tive effect on peo­ple’s well-being and can get on their nerves. Kitchen aro­mas that fill the entire apart­ment do not excite the appetite, but rather, on the con­trary, cause dis­gust and irri­ta­tion. BUTif you also remem­ber the unpleas­ant greasy coat­ing on the fur­ni­ture, the deci­sion to buy a hood comes by itself. Those who are going to pur­chase it should not only choose a device suit­able for their inte­ri­or with the nec­es­sary tech­ni­cal para­me­ters, but also care­ful­ly con­sid­er the instal­la­tion of the unit (there are many nuances and pit­falls in this process). We will try to draw your atten­tion to the most impor­tant points.

We meet by clothes

The hood con­sists of four main com­po­nents: hous­ing, air intake, fil­ters and fan unit. Before study­ing in detail the device of hoods, we will care­ful­ly look at these devices. Out­ward­ly, they dif­fer sig­nif­i­cant­ly from each oth­er, and not only in design. The sim­plest- flat hoods. They are of two types: mount­ed- Lana (Kro­na, Italy), FPB-2050 (Cata, Spain), DHU652U (BoschGer­many), as well as built-in- Com­pe­tence DF6260 (AEG-Elec­trolux, Ger­many), TF (Cata). The first ones are mount­ed on the wall under the wall cab­i­net (or with­out it) above the stove or to the bot­tom of the cab­i­net itself. In the sec­ond case, please note that the cab­i­net must be firm­ly attached to the wall, tak­ing into account its weight (in the state when it is full) and the weight of the hood. Built-in ones are mount­ed direct­ly in a wall-mount­ed kitchen cab­i­net (only one pan­el is vis­i­ble from the out­side), so before buy­ing, make sure that a cer­tain hood can be built into the cab­i­net and pre­pare (cut out) the cor­re­spond­ing hole.

one.Hoods are pro­duced in dif­fer­ent styles, so that each buy­er, if desired, can find a mod­el suit­able for the most unusu­al kitchen inte­ri­or. ATthe hi-tech pop­u­lar today, for exam­ple, the Ombu TCC 900 (Cata) mod­el will fit per­fect­ly.
2–4.Hoods are often used to illu­mi­nate the hob, in this regard, mod­els such as Stream are inter­est­ing(2,3) and Cubeal­to(4) (Eli­ca).

Most com­mon- fire­place hoods: Sig­ma VL3 (Cata), ZHC 6244X (Zanus­si), Mia­mi (Jetair, both- Italy). Their name goes back to the shape of the appli­ances (although the design of mod­ern mod­els has changed a lot), they mount such units on the wall above the stove. These prod­ucts are more pro­duc­tive, they can often oper­ate in both recir­cu­la­tion and air exhaust modes. “Island” hoods- Stel­la Iso­la 5P (Kro­na), Isla Gam­ma Glass VL3 BL (Cata), DIA 093650 (Bosch)- designed to be mount­ed to the ceil­ing above the kitchen “island”. ATCor­ner hoods have also appeared in the assort­ment of many com­pa­nies (Ango­lo Box VL3 BL, Cata)- for instal­la­tion in a cor­ner.

In bright light

Fragrances.netFaberIf you are going to buy a hood, be sure to pay atten­tion to the lamps, because the effi­cien­cy of light­ing the hob depends on them. Their type, num­ber (on aver­age 2–4) and loca­tion are very impor­tant in order to cook com­fort­ably. For exam­ple, if the lamps are at the back of the appli­ance, the light will only fall on the far burn­ers. Turn on the store hood lights and see how effec­tive­ly they illu­mi­nate the space. AThoods use incan­des­cent, day­light (flu­o­res­cent) and halo­gen lamps.

ATlight of incan­des­cent lamps (20–40W) food on the stove becomes red­dish. These bulbs are cheap and easy to replace.

Flu­o­res­cent lamps (9–13W) last longer than oth­er types of lamps and pro­vide even, dif­fused light­ing. How­ev­er, the prod­ucts in its rays seem bluish and do not look very appe­tiz­ing.

ATbright light of halo­gen lamps (20–50W) Prod­ucts retain their nat­ur­al col­or. These lamps are the most expen­sive.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers pay great atten­tion to the design of hoods. Cube hoods (Emili, Kro­na), cylin­ders (Pamel­la, Kro­na), fix­tures sim­i­lar to lamps (Black Stream 51 IX, Eli­ca, Italy) and many oth­er non-stan­dard prod­ucts were cre­at­ed.

As for mate­ri­als, the most pop­u­lar- stain­less steel (DWA 093550, Bosch) and alu­minum (DA 289–4, Miele, Ger­many). Mod­els made of stain­less steel look very impres­sive, espe­cial­ly since most often it is pol­ished. Such a sur­face is easy to clean, but can­not be cleaned with abra­sives. In order for it to retain its orig­i­nal appear­ance, it must be looked after (some­times even with the help of spe­cial means). Anoth­er dis­ad­van­tage of this mate­r­i­al- fin­ger­prints remain on it, so some man­u­fac­tur­ers apply a pro­tec­tive coat­ing or offer con­sumers to wipe the stain­less steel with spe­cial com­pounds from time to time. Cata has tak­en a rad­i­cal approach with the devel­op­ment of DurAlum, a mate­r­i­al that resists fin­ger­prints and streaks. Alu­minum hoods are good because their mat­te sur­face “mim­ics” the col­or of objects in the kitchen, per­fect­ly fit­ting into the inte­ri­or, and there are no fin­ger­prints left.

Hoods are dec­o­rat­ed with tem­pered glass and even wood (it is cov­ered with a spe­cial pro­tec­tive var­nish). Glass, as a rule, is used when dec­o­rat­ing hoods in the Art Nou­veau style.- Jas­min 5P LCD/5P (Kro­na), Amethyst (Elikor, Rus­sia), DWA 065550 (Bosch),- and the tree is present on the hoods in the spir­it of the coun­try (“Per­go­la”, Elikor). There are also unusu­al solu­tions. So, COR‑L and COR‑S (Cata) appli­ances, lined with cori­an arti­fi­cial stone, will har­mo­nious­ly fit into the kitchen, which has, for exam­ple, a work­top made of this mate­r­i­al.

Main dilem­ma

Before choos­ing a hood, the buy­er will have to decide the main ques­tion: how it should remove unpleas­ant odors.- by means of recir­cu­la­tion or exhaust air? There is still no unequiv­o­cal answer to it. Both options have their pros and cons, and you have to weigh them and choose what you like best. We will tell you about the fea­tures of these two meth­ods. Most hoods are designed so that they can work in both modes, but if you do not lay the duct (it is bet­ter to do this at the repair stage), the device can only be turned on in recir­cu­la­tion mode.

With recir­cu­la­tion, the hood works like this: the fan sucks air under the umbrel­la, dri­ves it through the fil­ters and returns it back to the room already clean. The own­ers of such hoods praise them for their low price and ease of con­nec­tion, but com­plain about the low per­for­mance of the device and the inabil­i­ty to quick­ly and effi­cient­ly remove all odors from the kitchen, as well as the need to peri­od­i­cal­ly change the car­bon fil­ter.

eleven.ATnew mod­els some­times use a dif­fer­ent method of air intake: evap­o­ra­tion spreads along the cen­tral pan­el and then goes inside the case through slots locat­ed around the perime­ter of the hood. This allows for 10% to improve the cap­ture of odors and to reduce the noise lev­el by the same amount. This tech­nol­o­gy is used, for exam­ple, in the Minial­to (Eli­ca) mod­el.

ATIn the exhaust air mode, the fan also takes in air and dri­ves it through the grease fil­ter, but does not return it to the room, but throws it out of it through an air duct con­nect­ed to the ven­ti­la­tion shaft or brought direct­ly to the street. This method of odor con­trol is more effec­tive, but the instal­la­tion of air ducts is quite labo­ri­ous and requires cer­tain knowl­edge. It is not dif­fi­cult to buy an air duct, lay it and con­nect it, but there are sev­er­al prob­lems here.

Let’s say you decide to con­nect an air duct to a ven­ti­la­tion shaft. If you have a ded­i­cat­ed chan­nel (so far this is extreme­ly rare, main­ly in coun­try hous­es), there will be no dif­fi­cul­ties- con­nect to health. But if you have a ven­ti­la­tion shaft in com­mon with your neigh­bors, accord­ing to the norms, in prin­ci­ple, you do not have the right to con­nect to it: first­ly, it is pro­vid­ed for nat­ur­al ven­ti­la­tion; sec­ond­ly, it is able to pass through itself an aver­age of 140m3/ h, and by means of the hood you dri­ve through it an aver­age of 200–700m3/h or even more. ATas a result, many prob­lems will arise: kitchen smells will come back or go straight to the neigh­bors; due to the over­load of the chan­nel, your hood will have nowhere to throw air, which means that the unit will take it bad­ly and it will not be cleaned. In addi­tion, with such a trans­mis­sion of the ven­ti­la­tion shaft, it makes no sense to pur­chase a hood with high per­for­mance.

Anoth­er air out­let option- right on the street. ATin this case, you can buy an extrac­tor hood of any pow­er, and you will not have tech­ni­cal prob­lems with air removal. But you will have to cut a decent hole in the out­er wall, and this, of course, will require coor­di­na­tion with local gov­ern­ments.

11–12.Embed­ded (Kamil­la Wood, Kro­na)(11) and mount­ed (Smart Pro, Lex)(12) Hoods are com­pact and almost invis­i­ble. They usu­al­ly work in recir­cu­la­tion mode, often equipped with a retractable visor that allows you to increase the air intake, like Kamil­la Wood (Kro­na).
13.There are also such extra­or­di­nary vari­eties of hoods as built-in coun­ter­tops, for exam­ple FM 2500 DDA (AEG-Elec­trolux). This is part of the “domi­no” mod­ule, which, if nec­es­sary, “takes” the aro­mas from the hob. More­over, such a device can work in the modes of with­draw­al and recir­cu­la­tion. Max­i­mum per­for­mance- 350m3/h

If you decide to install an extrac­tor hood, there are a few things to con­sid­er. When con­nect­ing the hood, install a non-return valve so that the air does not return to the apart­ment (if the smells go direct­ly to the street, this device will not allow cold air to enter the room when the device is not work­ing). The mov­able flaps of the damper open when the hood is turned on to extract air from the kitchen and close when it is turned off.

To rule? Eas­i­ly!

Fragrances.netFaberFragrances.netFaberWhen choos­ing the type of hood con­trol, pro­ceed from what is more con­ve­nient for you. Man­age­ment is push-but­ton, touch and slid­er (slid­er). The first method is cheap and reli­able: you just need to press the but­tons. In the sec­ond case, it is enough to light­ly touch the device to turn it on. The advan­tage of the touch option is that the pan­el is easy to clean: there are no bulges or crevices, so dirt will not get stuck any­where. In the third method, the mechan­i­cal slid­er is moved in the desired direc­tion, there­by increas­ing or decreas­ing the speed of the motor andoth­er Amod­el DM 8700 (AEG-Elec­trolux) can be oper­at­ed using the remote con­trol. Some devices are sup­ple­ment­ed with an LCD dis­play that dis­plays infor­ma­tion about oper­at­ing modes, per­for­mance, back­light lev­el andt.P.

But that’s not all. ATIn most city hous­es, ven­ti­la­tion is nat­ur­al, that is, air enters through the doors and cracks in the win­dows, and goes into the ven­ti­la­tion shaft. If you pur­chase a pow­er­ful hood, it will emit an aver­age of 200–700m3/h Such air loss­es must be com­pen­sat­ed, because if there is no air inflow (say, due to the fact that win­dows with dou­ble-glazed win­dows are installed in the apart­ment), a vac­u­um will occur, and the hood will stop “pulling”. One of the most reli­able (although not at all tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced) ways- just open the win­dow, and not in the kitchen (then the hood will take and fil­ter the air from the street), but in anoth­er room. This is cer­tain­ly not ide­al: after all, the air out­side is not very clean, and in win­ter there are even more prob­lems.- The hood push­es warm air out and push­es cold air in. There is anoth­er way out- install sup­ply valves in the win­dows of the rooms (which is impor­tant in the pres­ence of dou­ble-glazed win­dows). True, this will entail cer­tain costs, and com­plex instal­la­tion will be required. ToIn addi­tion, users are not always sat­is­fied with the result and com­plain about a strong influx of cold air.

How­ev­er, do not think that due to numer­ous dif­fi­cul­ties it is not worth installing an extrac­tor hood oper­at­ing in air extrac­tion mode. This is not true. In prac­tice, high per­for­mance of the device is rarely need­ed (for exam­ple, if some­thing is burnt). Usu­al­ly, when peo­ple are cook­ing, the hood runs at a slow speed. If you do not try to send a vol­ume of air into the ven­ti­la­tion shaft that is much high­er than that which it can let through, and peri­od­i­cal­ly ven­ti­late the room, there should be no prob­lems. BUTin coun­try hous­es air out­let direct­ly to the street- one of the most pop­u­lar and effec­tive options for the oper­a­tion of the hood.

air roads

Fragrances.netAEG-Elec­troluxIn order for the hood to func­tion cor­rect­ly, it is very impor­tant to cor­rect­ly select and install air ducts, which are pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly in stores. For exam­ple, the noise lev­el of the air flow large­ly depends on their mate­r­i­al. Air ducts made of alu­minum foil dur­ing oper­a­tion of the hood begin to rus­tle and cre­ate addi­tion­al noise, while plas­tic pipes, on the con­trary, absorb sound. But the instal­la­tion of alu­minum pipes is eas­i­er than those made of plas­tic: the for­mer are easy to bend where you need, and the plas­tic ones are mount­ed in seg­ments that require a tight con­nec­tion. It is also impor­tant that there are no air obstruc­tions in the duct. Let’s say, “accor­dion”, bends, nar­row­ings resist the air flow, reduc­ing its speed. The size of the air duct should be select­ed based on the diam­e­ter of the hood out­let: if this para­me­ter is 100mm, it is bet­ter to pur­chase an air duct of a larg­er diam­e­ter, say 125mm.

18–20.Hood Mir­ror Art (Faber)(18) dec­o­rat­ed with a del­i­cate pat­tern, mod­els COR‑S (Cata)(19) and Pearl (Faber) (20) have a mod­ern high-tech design.
21.The Prime hood (Inde­sit) is made of stain­less steel. The edges of the umbrel­la are inclined at an angle of 25, which pro­vides easy access to the con­trol pan­el. Per­for­mance- 430m3/h

Air ducts are car­ried out along the wall; some­times they are hid­den behind hang­ing cab­i­nets or false ceil­ings, hid­den behind dec­o­ra­tive box­es. You can lay air ducts in the wall, but on con­di­tion that it is framed. This option is usu­al­ly used in coun­try hous­es. If you are installing the hood in a cab­i­net, you will have to make a hole in it for the duct (usu­al­ly at the top).

Tothe hood should be con­nect­ed through a sep­a­rate out­let, so you need to think about how to hide the wire: in a wall or a box. The hood must be ground­ed (these devices have a cord with three pins- “phase”, “zero” and “ground”), and it is bet­ter to pro­vide a cir­cuit break­er on the shield. If you live in an old house with a two-wire pow­er sup­ply sys­tem, do not be too lazy to run a sep­a­rate ground wire from the shield.


One of the impor­tant com­po­nents of the hood are fil­ters, because the qual­i­ty of air purifi­ca­tion depends on them. It can be assumed that fil­ters mat­ter only for mod­els with recir­cu­la­tion. But in fact, in devices oper­at­ing in the air exhaust mode, fil­ters are installed so that the inter­nal parts of the device itself, the air duct and the ven­ti­la­tion duct are not con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed.

Hood and stove

The dis­tance from the stove to the hood is reg­u­lat­ed. This is because grease can get on the hood, and if it is very low, a fire caused by high tem­per­a­tures or flames is pos­si­ble. ATat the same time, the hood should not be set too high: then it will not take the evap­o­ra­tion from the stove well, and there­fore, the effi­cien­cy of the device will decrease. If you have a gas hob, the hood should be mount­ed at a dis­tance of 80–85see from her. With an elec­tric stove, the dis­tance will be 70–85see. It is nec­es­sary that the stove and hood are suit­able in size. More pre­cise­ly, the umbrel­la should not be nar­row­er than the hob, oth­er­wise the appli­ance will not effec­tive­ly remove odors. If you install the hood high­er than rec­om­mend­ed, it is advis­able that its umbrel­la be wider than the stove.

There are two types of fil­ters- grease and coal. As the name implies, the for­mer puri­fy the air of grease, soot andt.etc., that is, they are strug­gling with the bulk of the dirt. They are installed in all hoods, regard­less of the type of device. Dis­pos­able fil­ters made of syn­thet­ic mate­r­i­al have to be changed peri­od­i­cal­ly (grad­u­al­ly appear­ing col­ored icons sig­nal their con­t­a­m­i­na­tion). This is not very con­ve­nient, so they are rare. Reusable are made of alu­minum foil or mesh (more pre­cise­ly, from sev­er­al lay­ers of per­fo­rat­ed alu­minum sheets). They are designed to last the life of the hood and should be washed in warm water with deter­gent or in the dish­wash­er as they get dirty. If the fil­ters are not cleaned in time, the load on the engine will increase and the per­for­mance of the device will decrease. Atsome hoods- e.g. HZTB 9 IX (Hot­point-Aris­ton), KDV907X (Smeg, both- Italy), DD 950 P (Goren­je, Slove­nia)- there is a fil­ter replace­ment indi­ca­tor, thanks to which you do not have to remem­ber when the last clean­ing was done.

22–25.The pop­u­lar­i­ty of “island” hoods is grow­ing along with the spread of “island” kitchens. Such mod­els are usu­al­ly the most expen­sive and pow­er­ful. Attach them to the ceil­ing. An exam­ple would be the Isla Sig­ma DT4 (Cata) mod­els(23), AD 6900IS(24) and DH 1050IS(25) (Tur­boair).

The main pur­pose of car­bon fil­ters- odor con­trol. Such dis­pos­able fil­ters are installed in recir­cu­lat­ing hoods in addi­tion to grease fil­ters. Inside the fil­ter car­tridge are acti­vat­ed car­bon par­ti­cles that neu­tral­ize odors. Peri­od­i­cal­ly, these par­ti­cles or the car­tridge itself must be replaced, which entails reg­u­lar costs (the fil­ter costs an aver­age of 200–500rub.).

Amaz­ing near

So, we have found that hoods dif­fer in design, body mate­r­i­al, air purifi­ca­tion method, per­for­mance andetc. In addi­tion, there are var­i­ous func­tions that dis­tin­guish cer­tain mod­els on the mar­ket or make devices more con­ve­nient.

Atmany mod­els (DWB 069751, Bosch; 9060DM, AEG-Elec­trolux) a resid­ual fan stroke is pro­vid­ed- after turn­ing off the stove, the hood con­tin­ues to work for about 10min with the low­est capac­i­ty to ensure that all odors are removed. There is also inter­val switch­ing, for exam­ple, device D4692XO (Neff, Ger­many) peri­od­i­cal­ly turns on for a few min­utes to ven­ti­late the room. A pleas­ant sur­prise will be a func­tion that allows you to smooth­ly increase or decrease the inten­si­ty of light (its name may vary from man­u­fac­tur­er to man­u­fac­tur­er).

How to count air?

One of the most impor­tant para­me­ters of the hood- its per­for­mance, show­ing how quick­ly and effec­tive­ly the device will deal with unpleas­ant kitchen odors. This is the vol­ume of air that the hood pumps through itself per unit of time (mea­sured inm3/h). The design per­for­mance of the hood can be affect­ed by the floor, the length of the duct, its con­t­a­m­i­na­tion, and the inten­si­ty of cook­ing. Man­u­fac­tur­ers oper­ate with num­bers such as 1000 and even 1200m3/ h, but such sol­id indi­ca­tors are not need­ed at all and are rel­e­vant, per­haps, only for a coun­try house. By the way, man­u­fac­tur­ers have anoth­er way to “play” with the per­for­mance val­ue. It can be mea­sured in two ways: for a hood that is not con­nect­ed to an air duct, and for an hood with an air duct, more­over, hav­ing a cer­tain length and sec­tion (IEC 61591 stan­dard, the knee goes up by 30cm and to the side by 1m). Nat­u­ral­ly, in the sec­ond case, the num­bers will be less. Con­sci­en­tious man­u­fac­tur­ers usu­al­ly indi­cate both val­ues, and the rest use the sit­u­a­tion to their advan­tage.

How to choose a device whose per­for­mance is suit­able for your con­di­tions? Some install it intu­itive­ly, cor­re­lat­ing the method of air purifi­ca­tion and the inten­si­ty of cook­ing. You can also use the fol­low­ing for­mu­la:
Per­for­mance=Room vol­umeCor­rec­tion fac­tor(8–10).

Some hoods lit­er­al­ly learned to “feel”. So, in some Eli­ca mod­els, the tech­nol­o­gy of built-in auto­mat­ic sen­sors AST (ther­mal, tem­per­a­ture and humid­i­ty) is used. Ther­mal reacts to an increase in tem­per­a­ture in the zone of burn­ers, tem­per­a­ture- on the room tem­per­a­ture, and the air humid­i­ty is con­trolled near the hob. Thanks to these sen­sors, it is no longer nec­es­sary to man­u­al­ly adjust the per­for­mance of the hood- it will change itself depend­ing on the type and inten­si­ty of evap­o­ra­tion. There are also hoods that allow you to check the weath­er fore­cast. For exam­ple, the Antarc­ti­ca Meteo (Eli­ca) dis­plays tem­per­a­ture infor­ma­tion from an exter­nal home weath­er sta­tion. Far­ther- even more seri­ous­ly. The On Air hood (Hot­point-Aris­ton) is equipped with a Blue­tooth sys­tem that allows you to make voice calls and com­mu­ni­cate hands-free with­out a phone. ATThe LC 956BC60R device (Siemens, Ger­many) is equipped with a TV, a device for watch­ing DVDs and lis­ten­ing to CDs. You can also watch TV shows with the Avro­ra TV (Kro­na) hood, which has a built-in LCD TV.

Let’s go to the store

We advise you to test the hood in the store: press the but­tons, lis­ten to the noise, see what kind of light­ing the lamps give, you can try to replace the car­bon fil­ter.
