When is a cooker hood not a cooker hood?  When it is an Elica OM. The sleek Italian design bears no resemblance to the typical extractor fan models.  It looks like a wall mounted flat panel TV or even a funky piece of art! The fan itself is located in the round part which can be pushed in when it is not in use to maintain a flush appearance.

The Elica Om is not just stylish and trendy but works quietly and efficiently. It “features Perimeter Aspiration, which directs the airflow across the entire surface of the hood, thus increasing the effective extraction area.” That’s a good thing.  Garlic-rich smells from your latest culinary endeavor should definitely make it outside via this cooker hood.  It comes in stainless steel or black and is available from John Lewis for £999. – Via
