Thinking of purchasing or installing a cooker hood? In this buyer's guide Miele talks you through the key points to consider during your kitchen design journey.
It is important to consider both the technical elements including ducting and extraction rates, but also your lifestyle, what type of cooking do you do?
During cooking, and in particular when frying, capours are given off which consist of a mixture of steam, particles of fat and odours. If air in the room is not extracted or filtered, these vapours will remain in the room and affect the kitchen environment.
Over a period of time this will affect the kitchen furniture, soft furnishings, paintwork etc. as this is where grease and vapours settle. There are three options for cleaning the air effectively: extraction mode, air extraction with an external motor and recirculation mode.
