At AO, we love a good combo. The fridge freezer. The washer dryer. The bluicer (look it up – it’s a real thing). The vented hob is just another great two in one. It’s a hob with a downdraft cooker hood built-in, so it keeps the kitchen smelling fresh and saves on space.
Because vented hobs have a cooker hood built-in and a sleek and minimal design, your kitchen will end up looking like it has a lot more space.
Since you don’t have to worry about where to put a cooker hood, vented hobs suit any kind of kitchen style. Got an island? This is the perfect thing for it.
Vented hobs are usually more efficient than other cooker hoods. Steam is drawn out at cooking level, so you get fewer smells and condensation clouding up your kitchen.
Maybe saving the best for last, but vented hobs are quieter than regular models. You don’t have to put conversations on hold while these guys are in the room.
This vented hob from Elica is the definition of a statement. It’s an induction model, so it’s incredibly efficient to cook with and as hobs go, it looks pretty darn great. The downdraft cooker hood pulls any fumes or smoke and automatically adjusts the settings to your cooking too, so you won’t have to lift a finger.
Vented hobs combine an induction cooking surface with a built-in downdraft cooker hood.
A downdraft extractor doesn’t have the hob, but in terms of ventilation they’re fairly similar. They both extract fumes from the same level as the hob, but an extractor takes up a bit more room.
One of the main benefits of a vented hob is its quietness. If you’re looking at one of these products, you won’t have to worry about conversations being drowned out.
The beauty of a vented hob is that you have the freedom of where to put it. That means it can even go on a kitchen island.
Short term, yes. But once you look a bit further, vented hobs are a great investment to make. These 2-in-1 products can last up to 15 years, and with the benefits above, they’re a great choice for your kitchen.
