Keep your kitchen odour-free and smelling fresh with Hotpoint's collection of stylish hoods. Our cooker hoods buying guide will take you on a journey to better understand the types of hoods available, what features to consider, and help you to feel confident you’ve selected your ideal option.
Hood Types & Styles
Before purchasing a hood, you should identify what type of venting you require, this is often dependent on your current installation. Recirculation hoods filter the air through a carbon or charcoal filter so there's no need for an external vent. Keep in mind that these filters will need to be replaced every 6 months. Alternatively, choose a vented (or ducted) hood, which more efficiently removes smoke and odours from your kitchen through an external pipe that leads outside your home. This method requires little maintenance, but can be expensive if you need building work.
Hotpoint Hood Technology
We have a wide-range of cooker hoods that will suit any style of kitchen. If you have a small kitchen and are on a budget, our Canopy Hoods are perfect as they are fitted directly underneath the cabinet so it blends seamlessly into your kitchen design. If you're looking for something traditional to match your kitchen decor, Hotpoint offers a variety of Chimney Hoods in various sizes (as it’s important to make sure the hood is the same size or larger than your hob).
Our Decorative Hoods are modern and stylishly designed with a flat or curved glass hood that adds function and fashion to every kitchen decor. Or, discover a new focal point in your kitchen with our Vertical Glass Hoods. With their minimalistic design, they represent a new generation of stylish, sleek and ultra-effective hoods.
Features Built for Your Lifestyle
After determining which type of cooker hood you want, you have a few additional hood features to consider before making your decision:
Extraction Rate - can be set at different speeds to extract air depending on how stubborn the odours are. Usually comes with a booster function for maximum extraction power.
LED lighting - light up the entire surface of your hob without shadows with LED lighting, which also offers 90% energy savings and lasts 10 times longer than a conventional lamp.
Silence Control - With Hotpoint’s Silence Control button, you have direct access to the lowest noise level (35dba) with just a single touch.
