So Whats Happening in the Hood?


Who says cooker hoods have to be dull, box-like chimneys hung above your hob? There are some stunning and unique designs around. Sleek modern glass designs or flamboyant chandelier style cooker hood designs

This year Spazio wins the Good Design Award, thanks to its extraordinary innovative qualities. Take a look at the new hood designed by Francesco Lucchese for Falmec, I particularly like the herb growing platform with high-tech lighting enabling cooks to harvest fresh herbs all year round. An intelligent way to use space in your kitchen design, is the start of things to come?

 

  • The new cooker hood design offers the possibility of housing a small indoor garden designed for the cultivation of aromatic herbs thanks to the presence of a light that stimulates photosynthesis.
  • USB outputs and power sockets that allow to recharge electronic devices such as tablets, smartphones or MP3 players, while a ‘tablet holder’ allows the cook to consult any application or recipe.
  • Frosted glass shelving for storing crockery or any other useful objects in the kitchen and a channel equipped with hooks for the organisation of utensils.
  • Led lighting system that illuminates the worktop extensively.
  • And finally, a superior filtration system to prevent odours.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT FEATURES TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A COOKER HOOD

Extraction or recirculation? If you can, opt for extraction every time!

Power of extraction - The legal limit extracts 650 m3/h at full power.

Noise - Noise levels of hoods are always measured at a point 1.3 metres from the centre of the hood. Make sure when comparing you need to choose identical minimum and maximum air extraction capacities.

Lighting - LED lights are the best solution.

Cleaning - Filters need to be readily accessible.
