RANGE HOOD CHOICE
I'd choose a canopy style over slide-out. Fewer moving parts = reduced chance of breaking.

Omega & Smeg are both made by the same company.
We have gone for an Omega rangehood, but it's still not installed, so sorry can't comment based on experience.

Gas cooktop flame
Usually if its orange it means the flame isnt hot enough OR something has been spilt over the burner partially blocking the holes and reducing the flame.
My only advice on a rangehood is spend as much as you can afford. This piece of equipment will almost single handedly determine whether you enjoy…
Island range hoods
Miele has an island rangehood that you can adjust its height at a touch of the…
Induction cooktops - Belair brand
Has anyone purchased/heard of a brand of induction cooktops by Belair? I've found a supplier online who has some fantastic prices but have never heard of them.
Thanks for the feedback. Was very impressed with the products in the store, just such a big outlay. At least we cook at lot.

+1 for Schweigen.
I have the 2x professional series (non iso-drive) and it is still relatively quiet given it can extract up to 2200m3.
No problems even over the BBQ.
