It is difficult to imagine a modern kitchen without appliances such as a range hood. It allows you to effectively clean the air from particles of oil and products hovering in it, get rid of extraneous odors when cooking, and prevent them from spreading throughout the apartment. The Korean brand Hyundai is preparing a whole series of cooker hoods, which will go on sale very soon. One of the models of Hyundai HBH 5232W hoods came to us for review and testing. This is the newest model — it can not be found in the warehouse yet, we just received a sample for testing, so the review provides exclusive information.
Main technical characteristics of the hood
The HYUNDAI cooker hood is connected and operates from a standard power supply with a voltage of 220-230 W and a frequency of 50 Hz. The case has a standard degree of protection against moisture and water vapor, so you should not be afraid that at one fine moment the electrician in the hood will close.
The fan is not too noisy — the volume from it is about 58 dB at maximum speed. The hood is equipped with LED bulbs, the power of each of them is 2.4 or 3.5 W — they are convenient for illuminating the work surface or creating twilight in the kitchen. The maximum power consumption of the entire hood does not exceed 190 watts. Overall dimensions are small — 600x307x199 mm, the hood weighs a little — only about 6 kg, so it will hold securely even on the wall.

Materials and appearance
The body is made of thin sheet galvanized steel coated with a layer of powder paint. All elements of the case are perfectly fitted to each other, there are no cracks or gaps between them, the connections are rigid.
The model has two LED lamps. They are very bright, the fan is quite powerful (with a maximum fan air capacity of 450 m3/h) — air intake is much more efficient compared to similar models from other manufacturers. The fan switch has three positions:
- position 0 — does not work;
- position I — low speed;
- position II — high fan speed.
During installation, we advise you to be more careful — the washable grease filter is made of aluminum, and if handled carelessly, it can fall out. We also did not quite understand why the plugs on the white hood are made of black plastic. Although it catches the eye only at first and when moving forward, you get used to it literally in one day.
The fan turns on when the sliding panel is pulled forward, as soon as it is closed, the motor turns off by itself. This is a very significant plus and convenience, since you do not have to press the buttons every time. The same applies to lighting — when pushed forward, the light automatically turns on.

Quite an interesting, albeit very simple, hood that can perfectly fit into any kitchen interior. I especially liked the small need for buttons to control the fan and lighting — just pull out the front panel, and all these details will turn on by themselves. The model is simple, but it works very effectively. Lighting is based on LEDs, thanks to which it will be possible to reduce energy consumption.
The hood can be connected to the ventilation system, or replaceable carbon filters can be used. We definitely recommend this model for purchase. It remains only to wait until it goes on sale.
