Best Extractor Hoods for the Kitchen

Whilst I love the smell of a delicious spicy curry or a warming rich stew of an evening, these are not necessarily aromas that I welcome at breakfast! This is why I love my extractor hood. It keeps the kitchen fresh, cool and smoke-free – just the way I like it in the morning.
