Downdraft hoods work by pulling the steam and odours from the cooking area and pushing them through the grease filters and down below the work surface to the outside wall through ducting. Alternatively if you’re recirculating the air using optional charcoal filters you would normally fit a ventilation grille in the plinth to allow the warm air to escape. Some models are designed to be flush fitted into a solid worktop such as granite or quartz for a perfectly seamless look.
This flush fit makes them a popular design choice as they preserve the integrity of the clean lines in your kitchen and are a great space saving solution. They also work great in kitchens where more conventional cooker hoods aren’t a viable option. For example, if you have cathedral ceilings in your kitchen, a downdraft hood is a fantastic option.
If you want more flush and integrated options that are good space savers, check out our Canopy Hoods and Ceiling Hoods. These offer similar benefits to the downdraft range and there are some fantastic options up for grabs.
