A good rangehood will keep steam and smells out of your face when you're busy cooking.
If you cook a lot, you already know how much rangehoods are needed. Getting rid of the steam, fats and smells can make or break the atmosphere in a kitchen. But how do you choose? You'll be sitting serenely waiting for your food to cook, or spluttering from the chilli smoke. Best to get it right!
