By choosing a hob with an integrated extractor, you won’t be limited by having to position an extractor over it. Instead, you’ll have complete freedom over how you design your kitchen.

These hobs are ideal for kitchen islands where you wouldn’t want a hood getting in the way. You’ll have to pay a bit more for this new and innovative technology, but it could be worth it if you’re designing a luxury kitchen.

Many of these hobs come with advanced features such as sensors that sense how much extraction power is required and adjust it accordingly.

About Integrated Extractors

Pros and cons of integrated extractors

Some of the advantages of induction hobs with a built-in extractor are:

  • No cooker hood required This is great for kitchen islands, open-plan kitchens and countertops where there isn’t enough space above for a cooker hood. It means you won’t accidentally bang your head on the cooker hood, and if you’re cooking on a kitchen island you can talk to people elsewhere in the kitchen without a hood getting in the way.
  • No rising steam – This makes them safer and prevents moisture from accumulating on the wall/kitchen cabinet etc.
  • Steam & smells tackled at source – It’s less likely that cooking odours will spread into the room.

However, there are a few drawbacks:

  • Vent takes up room on and under the cooktop – You’ll need more space on your kitchen countertop than you would with a regular induction hob. You’ll also need space underneath for the extractor itself and any ducting.
  • Expensive – Hobs with an integrated extractor are uniformly expensive. There don’t seem to be any budget models on the market.

How well do built-in extractors work?

The short answer is yes, built-in extractors do work, and a good one will work just as well as a regular extractor. In this video, Steve from Roots Kitchens Bedrooms Bathrooms uses a humidistat sensor to test the effectiveness of a built-in extractor. The video shows that the humidity around the hob returns to normal after the built-in extractor is turned on.

The integrated extractor can be either ducted or use recirculation. If it’s ducted, this means it will be connected to outside. If it uses a recirculation system, it will filter and clean the air using a carbon filter and then release it back into the kitchen.

It’s important to remember that you will need space (usually at least 20 cm) underneath your kitchen countertop for the extractor itself and any ducting.

Integrated extractor vs. downdraft extractor

One alternative to buying an induction hob with a built-in extractor is to buy a separate downdraft extractor. This is installed behind your hob and sucks the air horizontally and then down rather than up, making it a good option if you can’t or don’t want to install a cooker hood over your hob.

Downdraft extractors usually rise up around 40 cm from the hob, so aesthetically the effect is quite different to an integrated extractor that is flush with the hob surface.

Buying a regular induction hob and installing a separate downdraft extractor could be cheaper than buying one of the hobs listed above, though it depends on exactly which products you choose.

Will spilt liquid damage the extractor?

One thing you might worry about with venting hobs is what happens when a pan boils over. Will it damage the extractor?

Most venting hobs are designed to be able to handle water and other spilt liquids, so this won’t be a problem. It will be held within a container, which can then be emptied.

Can you buy a 5-ring induction hob with a built-in extractor?

As far as we are aware, there aren’t any five-ring induction hobs on the market that come with a built-in extractor. The biggest hobs with this feature have four rings.



If we had to pick just one of these induction hobs to recommend, it would be the Elica NikolaTesla as the built-in extractor works very well and the hob looks exceptionally stylish. It’s slightly cheaper than some of the alternatives, while still adding a classy touch to your kitchen. It’s also one of the most popular venting hobs in the UK, with plenty of positive reviews.
