I never thought that I would need to go to the expense of buying a cooker hood but for quite a while I have been battling mold around my kitchen where moisture from steam has collected in the corners and the decision has been made for me. It's solved the problem that's for sure. Plus no more lingering odours that travel around the rest of the apartment or my extra sensitive smoke alarm going off whenever there's a hint of a cooked foodstuff. So it solved quite a few issues in one go. While I didn't really want to spend upwards of £300 on a cooker hood, it truly is a relief not having to worry about the mold forming anymore, and this really is an efficient product, so it was worth the price. I went for the brand Elica after seeing the same make at a friend's house. Initially it is visually stylish so that ticked the first box. She let me have a play with the buttons to try it out for myself and I found it all very easy to use. It has three different speed settings for the airflow, the noise levels are less than other cooker hoods I've experienced in rented accommodation in the past, and the lights are nice and bright to light up the cooking below. Washing the grease filters can be a pain so just make sure to remember to do that frequently and they won't be hard to clean. Overall it's a cooker hood, so it's not complex to use. It's well worth the expense to stop problems arising from steam, smoke and odours. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which way you look at it) I can't comment on the installation as I left that to my dad who is great at those things!
