Cooker Chimney Hood Stainless Steel 900mm
Neat Cooker Hood
Next day delivery great. The hood is lightweight, attractive and should have been straight forward to fix. However, the collar supplied was not fit for purpose. The bag with that and other bits had been wrapped so tightly, that the brittle plastic was broken and couldn't be used. I ended up using mastic to fix a round reducer to the top to fix to the Manrose cooker hood kit.
The other problem I had was fitting the chimney which comes in two parts to reach most ceilings. One part was too long and the pre-drilled one was too short. It was probably my DIY skills that were lacking and I didn't want a join line on the chimney. This was the most frustrating element for me (more so than the collar). However, the client (aka the wife) is pleased with the result.
What would improve my rating - a better collar made of better plastic that can link direct to the cooker hood duct kit and a paper template for marking the wall prior to fitting. It has only been operational for two days but is quieter than the previous hood. As other reviewers have said the light isn't great. But that said, I'd recommend this product.

very good extraction
slight imperfection, on the under line cover against wall. could do with some led GU10 lamps instead of the fluorescent. but this unit is far better than many I have use or installed.

Finally I've foud a Cooker hood that actually works...... effectively removing smells and steam from the kitchen.
(Stand outside and you can dry your hair in the downdraft)
Overall finish is good with no sharp edges
The lights actually illuminate the cooker surface very well
Well packaged and so no worry of damage being delivered, but it was bulky to get rid of (had to take it to the dump)
