What do cooker hoods do?

Cooker hoods are essential appliances in kitchens designed to improve air quality and remove various airborne contaminants, odours, and pollutants generated during cooking. They play a crucial role in maintaining a clean, healthy, and comfortable kitchen environment. Here's a detailed description of what cooker hoods do:

Smoke and Odour 

Removal Cooker hoods effectively extract smoke and cooking odours generated during meal preparation, ensuring a pleasant and odour-free kitchen.

Grease and Oil Filtration 

Equipped with grease filters, cooker hoods capture and collect grease and oil particles, preventing them from settling on surfaces and creating a greasy build-up.

Improved Air Circulation 

By removing hot air, steam, and cooking fumes, cooker hoods enhance air circulation in the kitchen, contributing to a more comfortable cooking environment.

Removal of Harmful Pollutants 

Cooking can produce harmful pollutants like carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Cooker hoods with powerful ventilation systems help eliminate these pollutants for healthier indoor air quality.

Prevention of Grease Build-up 

By capturing grease and oil particles, cooker hoods prevent the accumulation of sticky residues on kitchen surfaces, making cleaning easier.

Fire Safety 

Cooker hoods reduce the risk of kitchen fires by removing smoke and fumes, contributing to a safer cooking environment.

Enhanced Cooking Comfort 

A well-ventilated kitchen with a cooker hood minimises discomfort from heat, steam, and cooking odours, ensuring a more enjoyable cooking experience.

Kitchen Aesthetic and Design 

Modern cooker hoods come in various designs and finishes, serving as both functional appliances and aesthetic elements that complement kitchen décor.

Different Venting Options 

Cooker hoods offer multiple venting options, including ducted and ductless systems, allowing flexibility in installation based on kitchen requirements.


Many cooker hoods feature built-in lighting, providing ample illumination over the cooking area for improved visibility while preparing meals.
