What are the different Types of Chimneys?

In recent years new cooker hood concepts have entered the market. At hindware we offer the most effective and efficient cooker hood options based on the Indian Cooking Habits.


  1. Canopy hoods
    As the name suggests, these cooker hoods are fitted in the base of canopy housing or overhead cupboards and are not really visible. Canopy hoods are also known as built-in or built-under cooker hoods. BEST canopy hoods are available in 52cm or 70cm wide. These hoods are fitted with ASC (Advanced Sensor Control) – which means that you can operate them fully automatically. No hassle with bending over the hob to find the on/off switch! Canopy hoods are suitable for ducting out or recycling.

  1. Chimney hoods or wall-mounted hoods:
    These are installed against a wall and are not suitable for kitchen islands. The most well-known chimney hood has a pyramid shape, but BEST offers a wide selection of different styles. A “vertical hood” is a new kind of chimney hood that sits horizontally against the wall and angles outwards from the base to the top of the hood. This is ideal if the cook is tall and doesn’t want head height restrictions. Wall-mounted hoods are available for recycling and ducting out. Please check the individual product pages as to whether a chimney kit is required if you are ducting out.

  2. Island cooker hoods
    An island hood is an obvious choice when you are having a cooking island installed in your kitchen. Most island hoods are available for ducting out and recycling. Island hoods come in different shapes and colours.
