Confused over cooker hoods?

Choosing a cooker hood can be a confusing purchase. So at DR Electrical we are making it as easy as possible.

Last month, to improve our showroom, we installed a cooker hood display.  As a family run business it took us years to get around to doing this, but we eventually agreed on how we should do this!
We decided to display most of the Baumatic range of hoods as they are unbranded and can be matched with any hob or oven in a fitted kitchen.

Come down to our showroom to have a look in the mean time if you are in the market for a new hood below is our buying guide:

Chimney cooker hoods - have a chimney leading off above the fan. You need to make sure that there is enough room above your cooker top for 75cm between the hob and the hood and room above the hood for the chimney vent. We stock –the Baumatic F60.2SS

Please note that chimney cooker hoods are designed to be mounted on a wall, if you are after one that is designed to be seen from all four sides and suspended from the ceiling you need an island hood.

Island cooker hoods - look just like chimney hoods. The important difference is that island models don’t need to be mounted onto a wall as they are designed to be suspended from your ceiling. Ideal if your kitchen has a modern style and your hob is in the middle of the room.

Visor/conventional cooker hoods - stick directly out of a wall. This kind of unit is very rarely found in sizes above the standard 60cm width. This is the most common of hoods! We stock the Baumatic STD6.2SS, it also comes in white STD6.2W

Fully Integrated cooker hoods – are built into the cabinet above your hob and are hidden behind a panel or door which must be opened in order to use. Almost all integrated models are 60cm wide or less, so if you are looking for a cooker hood that is only visible when in use but can be hidden the rest of the time, an integrated hood is ideal, the BT06.8ME is now in stock

Canopy cooker hoods –
They are built-in to the underneath of a cabinet directly above the hob. They are sometimes confused with integrated hoods but while integrated hoods are hidden behind a door and can be shut away, canopy hoods are always visible.  We stock the CAN52.3ME

We can order in any hood from all the top brands, Neff, Bosch, Belling, Smeg, Stoves, if you seen something you like and you are unsure please call us for the best advice on 0116 2666659

Have a great weekend
