Hotpoint is a very good name when it comes to kitchen appliances so you would be surprised to hear how little this cost to buy. It only cost me £68
This HTV10 23" Kitchen Hood is a good size at 60cm it cover the hole top of my cooking hob which is of course what you want from one of these. It's stainless steel and has three speed or power settings these are Leo medium and strong. Low is really only suitable if your cooking something small like boiling a single egg. While the middle setting is suitable for shallow frying. The highest setting must be used if boiling pasta or meat in a pot, anything that gives off a lot of steam. If you use any of the other setting it won't suck in the steam so what's the point.
The third setting is the noisiest. They are all quite loud but the full setting is a little too loud. You won't be able to hear the TV with this on for example. The built in light works well at lighting up the cooking surface. The buttons are right at the front and will be at eye level when installed. One last thing, when you are cooking be careful you don't smack your head off of it, I have done this more times than I care to remember.
This works well at the highest setting but it's a little too loud for me.
