Types of extractor: What type will work in your new kitchen?
Posted on 9th August 2021
I love cooking and baking, so know that having the right kit is essential. I don’t think my kitchen would be complete without a mixer and a good, reliable oven – and the team would miss out on the cakes and treats I bring into the office as a result, I’m sure (I asked them: they agreed!). One appliance that is absolutely crucial to any kitchen, and one that’s often forgotten about, is the extractor – or cooker hood. But what types of extractor are there?
First, decide on the type of extractor you need
There is a really impressive range of types of extractor out there for all budgets and to complement any layout, from more traditional overhead or wall-mounted hoods to state-of-the-art pendants with sophisticated lighting systems, created specifically for islands.
It might be a sleek solution you’re after so opt for an integrated ceiling design or invest in the latest combined hob and ventilation models – or a downdraft design where the extractor rises from the work surface and discreetly disappears when not in use.
With so many of us opting for open-plan living extraction is even more essential than it’s ever been to get rid of those unwanted, lingering smells in our living space.
Let’s have a look at some of the types available…
This is essentially when the extractor lifts up from the surface or from within the hob itself, creating almost a shield while sucking away steam and grease.
Cooker hood extractors
A cooker hood extractor is probably when we are most familiar with. Mounted either on the wall, below units or handing from the ceiling like a pendant, they can create a statement within your kitchen.
The latest extractor innovation – the extractor hob is a great solution for smaller kitchens or where you want to keep sightlines clear.
