Downdraft hoods are the perfect way to extract smoke, odors and grease from cooking. There are several benefits of using a them over a regular overhead hood.
From a design point of view, a downdraft hood allows for everything an overhead extractor fan does without blocking your view of the full kitchen. By slotting into the work surface by the hob, it suits sleek, modern kitchen designs.
It can often be easier, from a construction point of view to extract through the floor rather than the roof.
They generally take less power than large hoods and can often be quieter.
