Hood

Our kitchen does not have a direct vent out to the open. The air would have to pass through the yard and the smell would get onto there clothes there. As such, we wanted a hood with more powerful fan.

Our key criteria were airflow (which would indicate how powerful the fan was), noise (same airflow with lower noise its better for noise health reasons), and wattage (lower power consumption is better).

In terms of brand, we stayed with Turbo. As this was what we had used from our HDB and we were happy with it.

Chimney hoods offer the best airflow. There were only 2 hoods with at least airflow of 900 m3/hr, and noise levels below 60 dBA. It was between the Turbo Immaginario TL1000-90SS Telescopic and Turbo Incanto TD8188-BK 90cm.

We selected the TD8188-BK primarily for aesthetics reason. The lower power consumption helped a little. The telescopic feature of the TL1000-90SS was nice to have, but really not practical as we expect to cook almost daily and would end up leaving it pulled out.

Our first choice was actually the TFX6605 for its simplicity and price. However, it was not available and we were given the choice to top up for another oven. We decided to go for the TFM628T instead. There are more functions (8 vs 5), which we probably will not use anyway.
