The Neff D5855X0GB is ideal if you want some powerful ventilation to your kitchen, but don’t want a big cooker hood ruining the look of your fitted kitchen. It’s made to fit inside your unit, making it very easy to hide away.
At its highest setting it’ll draw in air at a rate of 650m³/h. This is definitely powerful enough for a big kitchen as well as smaller ones, no matter how many pans you’ve got on the go, it’ll handle all the steam and smells from them. There are three lower settings, ideal if you’re only using one or two pans at a time.
It measures 73cm across too, making it wider than standard cooker hoods. Since your hood and your hob have to be the same size in order to provide adequate ventilation, this slightly larger model gives you more scope for adding extra hob space to your kitchen too.
In terms of upkeep, the D5855X0GB is very easy to maintain. The metallic filters – the parts that look like scouring pads – are simple to wash. You can either run them through the dishwasher or let them soak in a sink of soapy water. You won’t have to spend money constantly replacing filters, plus your hood will always run at top performance.
On the underside of the hob there are two lights, which let you keep a closer eye on how your food is cooking. Very handy at night time too, if you want to rustle up a quick midnight snack.
