Choose a Franke’s Smart Deco cooker hood that complements your colour scheme. Available here in black, rose and light blue, the stainless steel hood’s seamless, truncated cone shape has a semi-matte finishing. As practical as it is well-designed, it has three fan power levels and, thanks to its soundproof body, produces a low noise level of only 68 decibels. Its low energy consumption makes it a sustainable choice, too.
The Franke’s Smart Deco hood retails at $1,050 and is available is #10-11 Cendex Centre. Visit www.franke.com.
