Extractor and Cooker Hoods

  • What is an extractor fan/cooker hood?

    An extractor fan/cooker hood is a kitchen appliance containing a mechanical fan. Often found above ovens, hobs and stoves they remove potentiality harmful cooking fumes, heat, odours, smoke and airborne grease from the kitchen environment making it safer and more pleasant to be in. Some can be used with filters to recirculate cleaned air back into the kitchen, while others will send air to the outside.

  • Is my extractor fan going to cause too much disturbance?

    By reading the short product guides alongside our products, you will find the noise level for each extractor fan. The bigger the extractor fan the more noise they are likely to make. All extractor fan models at Cookology feature modern technology designed to reduce unwanted effects such as noise level.

  • What are the different types of extractor fan?

    1: Island cooker hoods
    Located above a kitchen island these models are ceiling mounted.

    2: Ceiling hoods
    These are mounted against your ceiling using attachments and a base plate. Ceiling mounted extractor fans are usually remote control operated as they tend to lie flat against your ceiling.

    3: Wall mounted cooker hoods
    Often with a vertical extractor surface rather than horizontal, these models attach to the wall above the cooker. Wall mounted hoods help reduce loss of space and the risk of bumping your head.

  • What size cooker hood do I need?

    Simply measure the length and width of the cooker hood to be replaced.
    If you are a first time cooker hood buyer, simply measure the length and width of the oven/cooker unit. You can then use these dimensions to search through our available cooker hoods for designs that match. And remember to always get a new cooker hood fitted by a professional fitter/electrician.

  • How can I be sure I am getting the right extractor fan/cooker hood for me?

    Sometimes a quick look at some online reviews can help you make that final decision. Once you have narrowed down the extractor fan/cooker hood we stock fitting your requirements, it is always a good idea to check out some reviews, you may discover something you did not know.

  • Should I duct outside or use carbon filters on my cooker hood?

    Cookology Cooker hoods are an essential kitchen appliance if you want to extract moisture, smoke, food smells and grease from your kitchen when you cook or bake. There are a variety of designs, sizes and types to choose from and the type of cooker hood you choose and the way you use it to extract odours from your kitchen will affect the type of filters that your cooker hood requires.

    Most cooker hoods can be ducted outside via a ducting kit or if you do not have access to an outside wall, you can recirculate the air back in your kitchen using the recommended carbon filters which will remove smells and clean the air. Both are efficient methods; however ducting outside will get you the maximum extraction rate possible. In essence, if your Cookology cooker hood is vented externally, there is no need for carbon filters as all smells are vented outside. However, grease and carbon filters should still be used.
