But before we come to the latest hobs with extractors, you have to settle the question of what type of hob you’re going for.
Gas? Induction? A combination of the two?
The latest innovation in induction hobs is also one of
the most popular kitchen features you can now get your hands on. I am, of course, talking about a hob with integrated downdraft extractor. Sounds nifty, right?
Apart from looking super elegant, a hob with extractor also has the benefit of not obstructing any sight lines, which makes them ideal for an island.
Plus, as extractor hobs draw grease and any odours straight from the source (rather than letting them rise up first), unpleasant smells don’t even get the chance to linger. Clever, right? Not to mention incredibly useful in open-plan spaces – you don’t want this particular leftover from dinner to overstay its welcome while you and your guests kick back on the sofa.
But with so many different types of extractor hob out there, what is actually available?
Here are some of the latest models I’ve spotted…
