The airflow power required normally depends on the size of kitchen and type of cooking. The correct airflow for your specific kitchen can be easily worked out. Simply multiply the volume of the kitchen by ten and you will obtain the ideal airflow for that room. For example, for a kitchen of 3m x 4m with a height of 2.7m: (3 x 4 x 2.7) x 10 = 324. In this case, any Turboair cooker hood with airflow equal to or superior to 324 m3/h will therefore guarantee the complete and efficient ventilation of the room.
Cooking habits are also important, of course. For people used to preparing a quick meal, then the model to choose is one with a performance of up to 300-400 m3/h. For a family of three/four people who cook a variety of dishes, the model should have an airflow capacity equal to 400-500 m3/h. For a large family, for those who love cooking as an art, or where a group of friends are gathered together in a spacious kitchen to experiment with some exotic recipes, the hood capacity should be over 500 m3/h.
Effective capture of cooking fumes also depends on the correct use of the product. It’s always a good idea to switch the hood on at low speed when you start cooking. Then, as fumes and odours increase in volume, the airflow power should also be increased. When cooking is finished, return to low speed and keep the hood on for a further 5-10 min.
