Kitchen with an AEG cooker hood

Your AEG cooker hood has a range of settings and functions that help you get the most out of it.

AEG cooker hoods come with differing settings and functions. Also, the names and symbols of these may differ across models. Check the user manual for more information about your specific model.


Speed settings


First speed 
Low extraction level for heating up food and cooking with covered cookware


Second speed 
Medium extraction level when cooking with covered cookware on multiple cooking zones or burners for gentle frying. 
Third speed

Maximum motor speed

Speed boost
Our most intense extraction setting* – powerful extraction for 5 minutes when boiling and frying big quantities of food without a lid. Once the time has elapsed, the hood will automatically return to its previous speed settings.

Breeze 
Quietly removes lingering odours and steam after cooking. Cleans the air at a very low noise level and automatically turns off after 1 hour.  

Good to know 
Intended for use after cooking has finished. Once the hood turns off, you will not be able to turn it on again for 30 seconds to prevent unintentional usage.
