How to use the AEG Hob²Hood® function

Last updated 20/05/2024 05:17

Cooker hood with Hob2Hood function in use in kitchen

The Hob²Hood® function wirelessly connects your AEG hob and cooker hood. The hood’s fan speed is regulated based on the mode setting and temperature of the hottest cookware on the hob. 

The Hob²Hood® function is available on selected AEG hobs and cooker hoods. Both products need to have the function in order for it to work.  

Using Hob²Hood®

1. Turn on your hob 
2. Press 

When you’re cooking on the hob, the hood will react and turn on the hood light and fan. The default automatic mode has the light on, low fan speed when boiling and medium fan speed when frying.

If the fan speed doesn’t match your needs during a cooking session, you can either adjust it on the hob or directly on the hood. If you adjust the fan speed on the hood, the Hob2Hood® function will be temporarily turned off. The next time you turn on your hob, Hob2Hood® will be in use again.  

If you prefer not to use Hob²Hood® at all, you can turn off the function by pressing the Hob²Hood® symbol on your hob when it is turned on.

Available modes

The default mode is H5, but there are also other modes to choose from. For example, if you prefer more powerful extraction when boiling and frying, select mode H6. If you prefer low fan speed, select mode H4. Or, if you want the light to switch on automatically but prefer to set the fan speed yourself, select mode H2. 

See the settings for each available mode in the table below.
