How wide does your hood fan need to be?
How wide does the ventilation hood need to be? This depends firstly on the width of the cooktop and secondly on the size of your kitchen. It is important for the hood to be slightly wider than the cooktop below it. Only then can you be certain of capturing all the rising steam and vapours and benefit fully from the hood's power. If there is not enough space for this, then the hood should be at least as wide as the cooktop. The width of the canopy on many Miele ventilation hoods can be made to measure to suit your requirements. Non-standard widths of up to 240 cm are possible for many models.
