A Thermador hood pulls smoke, heat, grease and odors up and away from the cooktop. Thermador manufacturers a variety of hoods ranging from standard wall units to downdrafts, specialty hoods and units designed to hang over an island.
Depending on the unit, Thermador hoods have a variety of available features. Multiple fan speeds give the user a choice to balance noise against efficient removal of unpleasant air. An indicator tells the user when it is time to clean the filter. The option of a delayed shutoff allows the user to leave the kitchen when he is done cooking and cleaning, rather than waiting to turn the hood off.
