To choose the right extraction rate, take your kitchen’s size (Length X Width in M³) and multiply by 10 to get your extraction rate. For example, (10M X 6M) X 10 = 600M³.
In general, Cooker Hoods with an extraction rate above 600m3/hr is considered to be in the powerful range.
EF’s CK Vista, CK Luna IS, and CK VETRO PLUS are perfect with their impressive 1200m3/hr extraction rate.
Have a smaller kitchen or perhaps you only cook light? EF also carries a range of hoods that are smaller in size and fit seamlessly under your kitchen cabinet, while still having powerful extraction rates well above the 600m3/hr mark.

With a high extraction rate of 𝟴𝟮𝟱𝗺𝟯/𝗵𝗿, one might think that EFCH 9232 HM SS might be loud & disruptive. However, it has a low noise level of <59 dB (A) which is only a noise level of a normal conversation between two people.
Adjusting the fan speed is a great way to control the noise too! Turn them down to reduce the noise level, and turn them up if you have heavy cooking sessions. EF’s Cooker Hoods come with up to 3 Fan Speeds.
Control them in style with our modern touch controls, such as a Digital Touch Control in EFCH 9232 HM SS, and Invisible Touch Control on EFCH 9234T BK. Both of which blend beautifully with their matte black glass panel.
