This is the cooker hood we have over our range cooker. It is just over a year old and was fitted with the kitchen. We paid just over £100 but that was because the kitchen supplier could get a discount. Fitting didn't seem to be too much of a problem and it was done and working within an hour.
We chose this cooker hood because it looked stylish and fitted in with the style of the kitchen. You can also use it on an interior wall with carbon filters, another important consideration for us. Beumatic is also a really good make of kitchen appliance and we trusted their products. As a bit of a brand snob we wouldn't have an unknown brand on show.
This cooker hood is very angular which appealed to us as the kitchen has quite sharp lines. It looks great in the kitchen but the edges are pretty sharp and have found the corner of my head on several occasions (prehaps our fault for not having it fitted high enough).
This hood has 3 speeds operated by buttons on the underside. It is easy to work but extremely noisy, you would struggle to have any TV, radio on or hear the phone in the kitchen at the same time as the fan is on. As this is the 1st cooker hood we have had I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
Overall I am pleased with our choice of cooker hood. It looks great in steel with the matching steel range cooker, it works and is perfectly fit for purpose. The only downside really is the sharp corners which have on occasions taken chunks out of my head - I am though getting better at keeping my head low until moving away from the cooker!
