Rated 1 out of 5Â by NickNickname01 Avoid this product
I had to return this cooker hood and Screwfix accepted it back with no problems, so 10/10 for Screwfix.
The hood was fitted correctly with 5â ducting to an outside wall. On first use, condensation formed on the motor and began dripping back onto the hob within 90 seconds. This happened on every subsequent use. I contacted the importer (CNA Trading Appliances) and spoke to a very polite technical support employee. He agreed that the hood was installed correctly and told me that the hood was working as it should. He said that the hood was only designed to extract smells. It was not designed to extract steam. (After the call, I re-read the handbook and it states in black & white that âthis product does not extract steamâ). He politely kept trying to find an excuse or reason why he could blame me for the product being inadequate, suggesting that I keep steam to a minimum and opened a window.
At best, the hood does a mediocre job of extracting smells. It looks pretty on the wall. The lights are not particularly bright, but they are lights. It makes a bit of a noise when you press the button. But thats about it. Itâs basically a decorative toy. If you want an extractor, then I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere. I found one, with a seven year guarantee, that EXTRACTS steam and smells, for not a great amount more than than this one - manufactured by a company with confidence and integrity.
I would strongly advise against this product.

Took me 10 mins to screw it to the wall then a further hour to get the chimney to fit reasonably.
NO place for the mains cable to be routed unless you were taking it all the way up the chimney or straight back into the wall.
Unit does not come with activated carbon filters for use without venting, and I notice the ones sold here are on stock clearance so I'm guessing I will have to source them elsewhere shortly.
Has a good amount of updraught especially on full power, but is rather noisy on this setting.
The light could be better, as it's a bit dim, but does seem to do the job.
An extractor this size for this money, even with the above caveats, is a great deal. Would not hesitate to recommend.

It looks good, works well but can be noisy, especially on the higher fan settings. Fits onto the wall with just two fixings which come through key hole slots in the back so nice and easy to fix in place. I used hex head screws on mine as the fan mechanism does get in the way of a screw driver when trying to fix with normal screws.
