What is the must have distance between cooktop and kitchen hood/chimney


Kitchen designs in today’s world cannot be complete without including a hood, which comes in different types. In a ductable kitchen hood, a conduit funnel is settled to the chimney that takes away the warmth, smell, smoke and different particles out of the house. While in Recirculation-capable/recyclable kitchen hood, polluting influences, smoke, scent, and so forth gets filtered, and the natural air is circled through openings.


The ductable chimney is certainly a more appealing kitchen design since it’s efficient, whereas the latter is used due to space constraints.

In any case, before utilising the kitchen hood, there are a couple of things that one should be cautious of like distance between the cooking range and the chimney.

The distance is set i.e. the distance between the gas stove and base of chimney might least be 26" and greatest 30".

Regardless of what sort of cooking reach you have like electric cooking range, worked in hob or a typical cooktop, the distance to be kept up is same. The distance should not be under 26" nor more than 30".


If the distance happens to be less than 26", there is a chance that chimney/kitchen hood to burst into flames. Like, assume if the distance kept up is less, and the gas is left turned on with no utensil on it. Here according to chimneys capacity when it will be turned on, the fan may suck the fire and burst into flames.

Essentially, is the distance between the gas-stove and base of the chimney is kept more; the execution of chimney will diminish. This is on account of chimney won't have the capacity to take away all the smoke, warmth, and smell and polluting influences totally out of the room. Some of it will spread in the air because the distance is more than required. In this way to evade any real results and corrupt execution level of the chimney, the distance might be kept up anyplace between 26" to 30".

Therefore, as far as the kitchen interior design of your home is considered, one must look at style and safety at the same time.
