    Vented hobs

    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.

    What are the benefits of a vented hob?


    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.

    Suits any layout

    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.

    Better extraction

    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.

    NEFF vented hobs

    This vented hob from NEFF is simply stunning. Not only that, but it’s efficient too. While you’re cooking, the hob’s induction technology will help save energy, and the downdraft cooker hood will pull away any smoke or smells as well - the hood will even turn on by itself, as soon as its sensors detect any steam. This means you can enjoy the perfect cooking environment without doing a thing.
