Before my parents switched their vent hood last year, their kitchen sounded like a mixture of a race car track and a vacuum repair shop. How fondly I recall standing around the island pretending to listen to my mother's secret recipe for creole shrimp. The old extractor hood let me feign interest in varied subjects-everything from my second cousin's kidney to the rain in Spain. The new kitchen hood is as silent as a mouse (and if you've ever had mice invade your home, you're bound to recognize the truth behind this simile), which means I can now hear about familial health updates and weather forecasts. So it's a trade-off-the whisper-quiet vent hood gives my ears some needed peace while also exposing me to some irksome conversation. Be forewarned about the Ambient Light DWGR EW 9880 by Bauknecht.
Ambient Light DWGR EW 9880 vent hood. Manufactured by Bauknecht.
Flat and Fabulous Kitchen Wall Hood
Besides being virtually silent, the Ambient Light DWGR EW 9880 might relax you to such a degree that you might find all kitchen conversation interesting. With its softly colored LED lights and contemporary styling, Bauknecht's designer cooking hood gives the heart of the home a cool atmosphere. Those LEDs get sandwiched between two white, high-gloss glass panels, so the unit emits a soft, ambient light. But you can also use the Ambient Light DWGR EW 9880 for task lighting: the hood's additional halogen lights illuminate whatever you're cooking on the range.
Lighting is not the only thing the Ambient Light DWGR EW 9880 offers. Hidden, three-speed touch controls do not interrupt the clean lines of the faÃ§ade. And the power of the appliance is great as well. Equipped with a 660 m³/h extraction rate and aluminum grease filter, this Bauknecht cook hood will effectively rid your kitchen of the smell of saut©ed onions or fried burgers, pan-seared trout or deep-fried French fries. The Ambient Light DWGR EW 9880 wall hood measures 80 cm wide (approximately 31 inches), which is big enough to capture the smells coming from most cooktops.
