Editor’s pick: S80GHW13 Cooker Hood
Here’s the thing… It’s no good having an amazing looking kitchen if it smells like last night’s fish casserole (however tasty the recipe). And that’s why an effective cooker hood is one appliance no kitchen can do without. At Sandstrøm we have four (count ‘em), but I want to talk about this one for a particular reason. It’s big. At 80cm wide, it’s big enough to cope with fumes and steam from a range cooker or our family-sized Five-Burner Gas Hob. It’s also powerful, with a quiet but super-efficient motor and four speed settings that will clear the air in a flash. Touch controls are sleek and easy to operate, whether you’re switching on the built-in timer or the integrated halogen lamps (not just for illuminating your food; try using them as ambient lighting when you’re dining at the kitchen table). The removable filter can be cleaned in the dishwasher and that sleek glass exterior can be shined with a quick sweep of a cloth. All in all, the Sandstrøm S80GHW13 Chimney Cooker Hood is a very good thing.
