The future of your kitchen looks bright. With its intelligent sensor, this cooker hood actually detects steam, odours and smoke and switches itself on automatically to tackle them. Neat, eh? And it only gets better. The two halogen lights provide a brighter, clearer view of your hob while you cook. It’s quiet too. At just 58 decibels, even the maximum setting runs just under the noise of conversational speech, so it won’t interrupt kitchen natters.
Cooker hoods are designed to remove steam and odours from your kitchen by pulling in air and cleaning it. The extraction rate determines how quickly this can be done. This model has four extraction speeds to choose from, so it’s great for clearing the air in your kitchen quickly. Select the lowest setting when you’re simmering or steaming food and the highest setting for frying and strong-smelling food.
With a noise level of 58db, this cooker hood produces a medium-level sound. So whether you’re entertaining guests, watching the TV or listening to music, you won’t get too much of a distraction from the extraction fan.
With a noise level of 70db, this cooker hood is on the louder side of the decibel scale. This model is more suitable for larger kitchen spaces. If you want something a little quieter, take a look at models ranging from 45db to 66db.
Extraction and recirculation
When it comes to extracting air, you can choose to vent it externally or recycle air back into your kitchen. If you can connect a ventilation hose to an external wall, the cooker hood will draw air in and push it outside. If your kitchen layout doesn’t allow for this, charcoal filters will remove unwanted odours and smoke, before releasing the clean air back into your kitchen. This means your kitchen will always be nice and refreshed – whatever layout you have.
High extraction rate
The amount of air that can be removed from your kitchen in an hour depends on how powerful the extraction rate of your cooker hood is. This model has a high extraction rate, which means it’s ideal for clearing steam, smoke and cooking smells from large kitchens and open plan living spaces.

My first Cooker Hood
I purchased this model because it would fit in the space I had available, it offered 4 speed extraction, it came in Stainless Steel and it had bright lights.
It's been on automatic since it's fitting two weeks ago and switches on, selecting the appropriate speed as the sensor requires.
I would recommend it, but would point out that on 3rd and 4th speed it is a little noisy, it's a tight fit in a 300mm deep wall unit, the sensor is very sensitive; the toaster sets it off and it needs 150mm ducting.

Does the job
Small and neat cooker hood. Reasonably quiet and seems to extract well. Best bit is it is automatic so comes on when it needs to without any pressing of buttons. You can override if wish to.

Profit margin stares you in the face
This is a powerful extractor and looks good. But
1: Fitting it into a typical kitchen cupboard (IKEA in my case) is not made easy due to the number of bolts and fittings holding components on the inside that stick through the metal body of the cooker hood. There is little more than a quarter of an inch lip on the metal body where it overlaps the hole you cut in the bottom of the wall unit that houses it. Once you make this hole big enough to slide the metal body and it's protruding fittings into the wall unit. the fixing screws have very little material to grip onto. The lip should be at least half an inch wide to facilitate secure fitting with the screws provided. I had to make alternative holes and use longer screws horizontally to ensure the cooker hood did not crash down onto the cooker. This is easy to do however the design and instructions would benefit from improvement and not supplying a paper template to show the correct size hole to cut in a wall unit/cupboard is a major omission - Brittania are not supporting DIY installation.
2 - I was disappointed that the metal body comes with so many holes in it. Clearly a production economy that enables Brittania to use the same metal body for more than one design/model. As a result I had to tape over these unused drillings with duct tape (circa 20 holes) otherwise rather than just pulling air through the filters, it will be pulling air out of the inside of the wall unit as well. In this respect I felt the construction was poor and In persuit of profit margin the manufacturing was second rate leaving the customer to modify it. Really not what I would expect at this price point.
Pros: Ease to use, Looks goodCons: Poor quality

Good Quality Extractor
Feels like a good quality, high-end extractor. The sensor function is great - you can just leave it while cooking and the extractor will turn on and off at the required power for the situation. My only criticism is it's noisy, but I think that's because we had to use a flexible pipe, and a reducer from 150mm to 100mm which has increased the turbulence.
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks goodCons: Noisy
