Do you prefer cooker hoods or extractor fans?

I'm furnishing my kitchen and I have a little doubt: I don't want to buy a cooker hood. Even more that I decided to place a lamp over the island. So, I thought that I could install I would install a powerful extractor fan but I'm terribly afraid that without the cooker hood, the fumes, grease and smells will stick on the furniture and on the walls. What do you recommend?

Ok, I would suggest you to make an experiment. Take a good cauliflower, OK? Boil some water and cook it. Now, check with your nose whether it's better a cooker hood or a fan. With the hood above the stove smells and steam will move up and slide naturally into the hood and rejected. On the contrary with an extractor fan similar to those used in the bathrooms all the the steam will first circulate in the the kitchen and eventually will be sucked and rejected.

It's definitely better a cooker hood. There are marvellous design island hoods you can choose among. I have got a Miele cooker hood (moreover with integrated light bulbs): it's functional and it's even more stylish than a design lamp. Tell me if you don't find it cool!

As to the technology, I recommend you a hood with ASC technology, that means that it recognises burning smells, steam and gas, and starts

and stops working automatically. This allows to keep the kitchen clean while saving energy.

Buy a cooker hood but pay attention: there are extracting and recirculating hoods. The first sucks the steam and rejects it outside thanks to a chimney while the latter filter the air thanks to activated carbon and releases it in the same room. I suggest you to buy a cooker hood that you can set on both modes depending on what you're cooking.
