What Size Cooker Hood Is Right For You?

Measuring up is easy when it comes to getting a new Cooker Hood. However, there are a few things to consider before you purchase. The first thing you need to work out is your measurements to make sure your new Hood not only fits, but the extraction rate matches the size of your kitchen.

The most important measurement to take first when purchasing a new Cooker Hood is the width of the hobs below it. Make sure the Hood that you purchase is the same width as the hobs or cooker below it. Putting it simply, if you have a Range Cooker with a Width of 90cm, you would want to match it up with a 90cm Cooker Hood. If you have a 60cm Gas Hob, you would need a 60cm Cooker Hood.

Next, you will want to take the measurement from the top of your cooker or hobs up to the bottom of your cabinets, or ceiling, depending on the layout of your kitchen. Take into consideration the HOT ZONE. You want to make sure there is at least a 75cm gap in this zone for the extractor to work as efficiently as possible while also protecting your safety.

  • There are a lot of different Cooker Hood layouts, some of which require more calculated measurements. If you are looking for more information on measuring your new Cooker Hood, feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
