The cooker hood pioneers

With the kitchen the hub of the home, a cooker hood is an essential appliance for ensuring the air in your space is well-ventilated, fresh and hygienic. As well as removing unwanted odours and steam, the right cooker hood will also prevent long-term damage to your cabinetry and decor. With the growing trend for open-plan living, it has never been more important to install a stylish cooker hood with the right extraction power for your room size.

As the original inventor of the domestic cooker hood – and because it specializes in them – Faber is the global expert in kitchen extraction. Plus, because it’s one of the world’ biggest manufacturers of cooker hoods, Faber offers one of the largest ranges on the market. Offering a wide selection of hood types, styles, finishes and installation options Faber has an air-extraction solution for every space and budget.

Ventilate in style

When it comes to choosing the perfect extractor, it’s important to consider your unique style as well as the practical needs of your kitchen. Luckily, Faber has streamlined the process to help you find the perfect model for your space. Simply choose from the six categories: wall hoods, island hoods, ceiling hoods, integrated hoods, downdraft hoods and venting hobs. Next decide on your style: do you want a sleek model that will blend seamlessly into your minimalist scheme, or are you looking to create a focal point with a bold decorative design? With endless extractor styles, colours and finishes to choose from – traditional, contemporary, rustic or directional – your options are limitless.

Innovative air extraction

With lives becoming busier than ever Faber has pushed the frontiers of technology to offer a collection of extractors to save you time, space and energy. If you’re looking for a space-saving option, Faber’s Up & Down technology enables you to lower the hood towards the hob for efficient extraction when cooking and raise it again for an uncluttered space when finished. Whether it’s boosting extraction, reducing noise or saving energy, Faber has an option to suit your style. Plus, keep an eye out later this year for its striking new ‘smart’ range.
