My Review of the Hoover HHV67SLX Chimney Cooker Hood in Stainless Steel
This is a review of the Hoover Cooker Hood Integrated HHV67SLX in Stainless Steel.
The installation appeared to be fairly straightforward. We were replacing an old Cooker Hood so the inner liner was already there. This is a 60cm wide appliance, which is a fairly standard size and it fits quite neatly into our space.
I began by installing the Hoover Wizard app on the iPad. It has very clear instructions for linking up to the Cooker Hood and home wifi network, so I followed each step until this process was completed.
You start by creating an account with name & address details and then you are prompted to add your appliance. For this you need the serial number which can be found inside the hood by removing one of the filter plates. The cooker hood instructions were also found inside here, wrapped in a clear plastic bag.
I then also installed the Wizard app onto my android phone and logged in, I didn’t have to reconnect to my network, all the details were already there.
Once inside the app there are a three main options on the screen: Security Light, Air Manager, Light:
The security light is a function designed to give the impression that you are at home. The hood lights switch on and off intermittently for an indefinite period of time.
The Air Manager is where you control the air flow and speed. There are four levels, 1, 2, 3 and i for intensive. Each one provides slightly stronger extraction and is louder than the previous. If you choose the intensive option it will temporarily increase the motor’s extraction rate for 6 minutes.
You can also choose ‘auto’ if you want it to randomly change according to the quality of the air below. There is a sensor under the hood that controls this. It would last for 10 minutes.
The ‘Air Wizard’ option monitors the environment below and will send an alarm to the app if there is sudden variations in the smokiness of the air. This could be useful if you are grilling something liable to burn – I always have that problem grilling bacon or burgers.
The touch screen buttons are clear and large but sometimes I find I have to wait a couple of seconds for them to work but this could be to do with the speed of my network.
The Light function simply switches the cooker hood lights on or off.
The bright integrated LED lights in the cooker hood are very handy for shining light onto the hob for cooking under. I use these a lot.
It seems that you do have to be on the same Internet network as the cooker hood in order to be able to control it via the app. This kind of defeats the purpose of it for me because it’s probably quicker to simply walk over to your appliance and press the buttons than it is to log into the app and choose your options there. It could be more useful in summer, if you are busy in the garden and want to control the cooker hood from your app from outside, but you do have to be within your Wifi range for it to work and the cooker hood has to be switched on. When the appliance is turned off or is not receiving enough power, it is normal for the App to display the offline status next to the appliance's icon. You cannot work the app when it is in offline status.
I have given ease of use 4 stars because I don’t think the app is as straightforward to use as it should be. As a novelty factor, it is pretty cool being able to use the app to control the cooker hood but in reality I don’t think there are many times I would actually need to use it.
Overall I find this cooker hood very ease to use and stylish to look at. It is extremely effective at extracting the air, although a little louder than I had hoped. It works at removing cooking smells from my kitchen a whole lot faster than my previous cooker hood did.
Two things I really can't stand to cook are fish because of the smell and burgers because the amount of grease that comes off the burgers never fails to fill my kitchen with smoke. With this new cooker hood I'm more likely to cook things like this occasionally as the smells and smoke will clear a lot quicker.
