New Whirlpool Classic Chimney Hoods Create A Focal Point In Your Kitchen

Classic chimney-style hoods remain the most popular models on the market, and Whirlpool’s new AKR 945/IX and AKR 672/IX extractors provide an attractive fashion statement in the kitchen as well as offering excellent functionality.

Cooker hoods, thankfully, aren’t what they used to be. Long gone are the staid designs, lack of imagination and ear-nagging sound levels.

Whether you are new to the market or a returning customer, chances are you will be staggered by the choices in design, size and technology.

There are now a great many elegant and flexible solutions for extracting cooking odours from your kitchen whilst simultaneously creating a stunning visual impact.

The new cooker hoods from Whirlpool are versatile and stylish finished in high quality stainless steel, these contemporary models can be either ducted or fitted to recirculate, therefore making them fully flexible for any home. Halogen lighting give the models excellent luminosity, while their aluminium dishwashable grease filters ensure that the hoods continue to work smoothly and make for easy maintenance.

Juliana Sado, Senior Brand Marketing Manager, Whirlpool says: “Whirlpool offers a generous and varied range of cooker hoods for our consumers, but the classic chimney style remains the choice of most.
