Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the power level of a cooker hood measured in?
AThe extraction power of a cooker hood is measured in cubic metres oer hour (m³/h) - the higher the extraction power, the more air it can clean in a short amount of time.
QWhat is the average noise level of a cooker hood?
AMost cooker hoods have a low, medium and high power level - these have different noise levels. At their most powerful, cooker hoods can be as loud as 70Db, which is loud enough to make conversation difficult.
QWhat is the difference between vented and recirculating cooker hoods?
AVented cooker hoods use a duct leading from the hood to outside, meaning air can be removed and sent outside. Recirculating cooker hoods suck in the air, clean it via a filter, and blow it back into the room again.
QWhat is a filter on a cooker hood?
AA filter serves to remove grease and odors from the air, cleaning it.

Cooker Hood Buying Guide

Types of Cooker Hoods

Cooker hoods come in all shapes and sizes. The 3 main fitting types of are island (free hanging), wall-mounted and built-in. The hood that is best for you will be dictated mostly by the shape of your kitchen, and the position of your cooker within it.

Island

They are regularly used for kitchens where the cooker is situated in a central ‘island’ work surface. They are the most stand-out and visually impacting style of hood, and give a kitchen a modern, open-plan feel.

Wall-mounted

These hoods are attached to the wall of your kitchen directly above the hob, pulling smoke and dirty air away from the cooker. They aren’t as dramatic as island hoods, but aren’t hidden like inbuilt extractors. They can be simple as a ‘visor’ hood over the hob, or as eye-catching as giant ‘chimney hoods’ looming over the whole cooker. Wall-mounted hoods are the most common type of cooker hood, and suit all kitchens, from the very small to the larger ones.

Built-in

These hoods are generally smaller and quieter, but also come with less power. They are meant to be integrated into cupboards and ‘hidden’ away from obvious view. Because of their smaller size, they are ideal for more cramped kitchens, or places where a traditional chimney extractor hood would be too bulky.

Extraction Types

Cooker hoods work by sucking up the air given off from cooking, and either moving it to the outside through a duct or cleaning and recirculation it inside the room. Most cooker hoods can be operated both ducted and in recirculation mode.

The extraction power rating is measured in m³/h - the higher a hood’s extraction rating, the quicker it extracts air from the room.

Ducted

Ducted hoods feature a duct which channels hot air and smoke to the outside. Because they require access to the outside air (normally through a hole drilled through an outside wall), these type of hoods usually require specialist installation, or a hole from a previous installation. Extracting the air is more effective than recirculation the air.

Recirculating

Recirculating hoods take the dirty air and smoke given off from cooking, pass it through a filter to clean it, then blow it back into the kitchen. They do not require outside access, so are easier and less invasive to install, but are not as efficient at removing smoke and cooking odours as ducted hoods.

Filters

Filters serve to trap grease and smoke given off by cooking, leading to a better-smelling and cleaner kitchen. There are 2 different types of filters for cooker hoods - grease filters are important for all different types of hoods, since they help reduce the grease in the air and the smell of cooking. Carbon filters, on the other hand, are only necessary with recirculating air systems, since they strip the smoke from the air before it is recirculated back into your kitchen. These filters last about a year before they need to be replaced.

The hoods in our system are given a grease filtering efficiency grade. The better the grade, they more efficient they are at removing grease and odours from the air.

Cooker Hood Colours

Cooker hoods come in many different colours to best complement your cooker and kitchen. Most hoods can be found in plain silver, white or black but you can also find more adventurous colours - from bright red to fluorescent green - if you really want to make a statement!

Noise Level

A cooked hood is basically a large fan, so they make can make quite a lot of noise when turned on. The noise will depend on the power level of the extractor used - generally speaking the more powerful the fan, the louder it will be. Other factors such as the material used for the hood may also affect the noise level of your cooker hood.

Many hoods feature a low and high speed, with differing noise levels for each.

Most hoods also have a built-in lamp, to make cooking easier in dark conditions. Many newer models have extra bells and whistles, such as displays for showing the current mode and when the filter needs changing, remote controls for easy activation, and movable structures so you can set the hood at the perfect height for cooking.

Maximum Extraction Power

'Max Extraction Power' denotes the maximum speed of air extraction for the cooker hood.

Across the range of cooker hoods, the maximum extraction power range from 21m³/h to 2,500m³/h. The maximum extraction power of most extract hoods range from 650m³/h to 800m³/h. The Best Cirrus, which sells for $2,221.00, has the highest maximum extraction power and is an 840m³/h max extraction power cooker hood. The Cookology VISOR600SS, which is on sale for $69.13, has the lowest maximum extraction power and is a 180m³/h max extraction power extractor fan.

A higher extraction power means that the cooker hood will remove odours quicker, and be more effective as a whole.

Types

The type of the cooker hood denotes it's case design, such as wall mounted or integrated. Different kitchen designs will favour different types of hood.

Chimney / wall-mounted is the most popular type amongst new kitchen extractors. We found 1,926 kitchen extractors that are chimney / wall-mounted kitchen extractors. We found 373 cooker hoods that are built-in kitchen extractors, making this the second most frequently found type amongst new cooker hoods.

Noise Levels

'Noise Level' denotes the noise level of the cooker hood, measured in decibels (dB).

Across the range of kitchen extractors, the noise levels range from 24dB to 96dB. The noise levels of most cooker hoods range from 64dB to 68dB. The extractor fan with the loudest noise level is the Neff DEB 1612 N, which is a 72dB noise level cooker hood and is on sale for $283.92. The extract hood with the quietest noise level is the Siemens LF98BIP50, which is a 42dB noise level extractor fan and is priced at $1,236.84.

Lower dB means less noise while the air is being extracted, which means it's less imposing and annoying to use everyday.

Energy Efficiency of Cooker Hoods

The Energy Efficiency Class of a cooker hood shows how well it uses energy, and how much is unnecessarily wasted. Products are ranked from G to A++ in terms of how little energy they use compared to the norm.

We found 724 extract hoods that have an energy efficiency rating of A, which makes A the most frequently found energy efficiency rating amongst new extract hoods. We found 515 extract hoods that have an energy efficiency rating of C, making this the second most common energy efficiency rating amongst new extract hoods.

A cooker hood with a better energy efficiency rating will consume less energy whenever they are used, saving you money and making them better for the environment.
