It is known that the first hoods appeared in the XX century, however, unfortunately, the name of the person who made the revolution in the kitchen is undeservedly forgotten. It is only known that the device was invented to remove odors, but after going through the path of modernization, the hood began to perform other functions.

Circulating, in which the mine is absent, and polluted air is cleaned with filters and returned to the room. And the combined type, which has the ability to select the desired mode of operation from the first two.
When choosing a device, one should take into account not only the types, but also the design, types of fixing the device, the manufacturer’s company, the model, as well as the price and personal preferences, which is also important in the design of the kitchen.
