Distance Between Cooker Hood And Stove

12 posts in this topic

My contractor provided a distance of 60cm only between my slimline cookerhood and stove. I find the distance too short and my head could even hit the cooker hood.

For my previous installation, the distance provided was 65 cm. So I called up the company which sold me the new cooker hood and was told the usual installation distance is between 65-75cm. And if the hood is installed too low, the heat from the bob may affect the plastic portion of the hood in the long run.

Can someone share with me what's your installation distance between the slimline hood and hob?

Has anyone here installed a distance of 60cm for your hood and hob?

My contractor claimed he intentionally installed a lower height for me so that the fumes and oil are better sucked by the hood. But I am not convinced with his explanation and am really concerned.

Pls help. Thanks.

the house (rental) that i'm staying right now has the distance of 60cm btw hob & hood.

I'm so comfy with it that i'm even thinking of using the same distance for my new house.

With the lower hood, there's more storage space above.

And it's easier to reach for the items stored above. (btw, i'm 1.68m)

But for my previous house, it was definitely higher than 60cm.

I'm confused now too - stick to 60cm or more?

For slimline hood,it's better to have the distance 60cm since the suction power is much weaker than chimney type one.

If you prefer to have higher distance,better to opt for more powerful hood

-Yr contractor is correct: shorter distance so fumes & oil are better sucked away....Too far the distance, hood's suction creates a "short-circilation path" of air on the surface. Good Hood design used not plastic - always subject to high ambience temperature.

- My present one is 73cm, but chimney type - more powerful, so 73 cm is not a concern.

- Personally, I found 60cm is ok, you hood could be protruding "too out", so yr head always get knocked...

There is factory installation manual for all hood stating the distances. It will be good to follow that instructions - do not listen to ID or even supplier. The factory will provide the best distance based on the model that you are having.

One point to note is that if the hob is too high, you may not able to check the cooking easily esp

when you are using high pot. As my maid is doing the cooking who is quite short, i need to be careful that the

hob is not too high.

Above is my 2 cents...

looking at the fujioh brochure now - 800mm between base of hood to top of hob. Agree with home-maker, follow the manufacturer's instructions is the best
