One of the things which is often neglected when outfitting a kitchen is a high quality extractor fan, but it is actually one of the things likely to have the most impact on your kitchen and your cooking experience.
An extractor fan serves a lot of different functions, from extracting uncomfortable heat, to removing steam which may damage the rest of your kitchen over long periods. Perhaps most importantly, it can also help to remove smells from your kitchen, such as smells of burning and of particularly pungent foods. Everybody has experience of cooking something and having it burn or cooking something like garlic; an extractor fan will help to limit the permeation of smells throughout the rest of your kitchen and your home.
There are a few things worth considering before you install a random extractor fan. They can be a very noisy appliance for a kitchen, but low impact extractor fans can be found.
