    The name of the euquipment in the kitchen?

    Hello Everyone,

    There is a equipment in the kitchen which is used to get rid of the smell of cooking!And it is fixed above the gas burner? Is it the range hood?

    By the way , what is the most common name for the gas burner in British or America? Gas ring, gas cooker, gas oven, gas range? Of all the names, which one is the most used in daily life?

    Regards

    Sky

    I know in Britain they call them 'cooker hood' or 'extractor hood'

    With cookers it depends. If it's a freestanding one, it is just a 'gas cooker' if its built in, the top of it it's called 'gas hob'.

    We'd call it a fume hood or just the fan.

    I have only heard of it as a range hood or exhaust fan in Canada.
