It goes without saying that no San Diego kitchen remodel is complete without appliances and gadgets designed to make your life easier and your cooking experience exquisite. But one thing that people tend to forget is that kitchens get messy from smoke, grease, food, heat and water. All these appliances produce heat and odors, and nobody wants that in their kitchen. 

An effective ventilation system is an essential part of your kitchen as it helps to keep the heat and the odor from all the other appliances away. It also protects the kitchen surfaces from damage and grime build-up.

Every kitchen needs a functional ventilation system since it: 

  • Lessens smells and odors,
  • Minimizes condensation and grease deposits,
  • Reduces toxic emissions,
  • Helps improve air quality and circulation.

Choose a range hood that complements your cooktop, with exceptional airflow, full surface lighting and edge-to-edge extraction performance to match.

Cleaning is made simple, with grease trays that are built into the dishwasher safe stainless steel filters. Designed to fit seamlessly into the kitchen surrounds with no visible fixings, and edge-to-edge surface lighting that illuminates the full cooking surface, these paired products are a showcase of symmetry and balance.

Fisher & Paykel offers flexible design for any kitchen style

The great thing about ventilation from Fisher & Paykel is that you can choose ventilation that is hidden or out in the open. The range hood can be used to draw out and extend the design features of other kitchen appliances, or can be hidden behind cabinetry to give a more minimal aesthetic.

Overhead range hoods provide exceptional edge-to-edge ventilation performance, with the option to be a design showpiece of the kitchen or integrate into kitchen cabinetry. Downdraft ventilation is hidden underbench and extracts from beside the cooking surface, making it the perfect solution for island cooktops. 

Fisher & Paykel range hoods are designed to match, to fit perfectly, and to add to the overall aesthetic of the home. They both extend the style of cooking appliances from floor to ceiling and communicate their own design cues to create a kitchen that is convenient and beautiful.
