Which? has reviewed the latest cooker hoods, including models by Bosch, Elica, Neff, Baumatic, Rangemaster and Whirlpool. Our rigorous tests mean we can tell you which cooker hoods will rid your kitchen of steam, smells and grease – and won't deafen you in the process. 

  • Every cooker hood sent to the Which? test lab is tested in 14 different ways to find out how effective it is at removing steam, smells and grease in your kitchen.
  • We give every cooker hood a Which? test score so you can see the best and worse at-a-glance, plus how each cooker hood model compares to others on features and specifications.
  • Our Which? tests cover a range of brands, prices and cooker hood types, including: built-in, freestanding, chimney, island and integrated cooker hoods.

Which? is independent – we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We're not influenced by third parties and we don't accept freebies from product manufacturers or retailers. We buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
