Elica Cooker Hoods

Founded by Ermanno Casoli in 1970 Elica continues to be one of the leading manufacturers of cooker hoods in Europe which has, in 2005, entered into the North American marketplace. 

Elica cooker hood logoElica owns the majority of Fox (sometimes referred to as Fox Arredo) as well as Air Force and Jet Air, both manufacturers of cooker hoods. They also have substantial holdings in some suppliers.

Elica Cooker Hoods Market Position

Elica spans from the bottom to the cooker hood market with the more efficient, better built and stylish hoods commanding the high prices. Recently however there seems to be a distinct move towards more expensive hoods that have really different designs, some would even say outlandish as they don't look like cooker hoods at all.

Performance of Elica hoods is very good indeed on any we've seen. In fact, in terms of performance Elica is more or less the industry leader in cooker hoods for performance often rivalling the very best and, most expensive of brands, including some commercial ones.

So on the whole, well built, good performance and great backup so a good buy in our opinion.

We have to say that we'd wholeheartedly recommend Elica Cooker Hoods to anyone and, we have, a lot.

An good alternative to Elica if you find Elica's cooker hoods a bit expensive is their cheaper range under the Turboair brand name.

Elica Spare Parts

Elica Star cooker hoodThankfully Elica in the UK are a joy to work with, extremely helpful people and knowledgeable for backup which is very refreshing. Elica's service and support is almost legendary it's so good with almost unrivalled technical support for the repairers and fantastic customer support, these guys really do know what they're talking about when it comes to cooker hoods. 

Elica offers some of the best spare part, technical and engineer support in the business, extremely highly rated.

However it gets better still, spares are very sensibly priced in comparison to others, they sometimes actually seem to be cheap. Of course we can source any Elica spares and accessories such as the cooker hood filters etc. with most of the popular spares and filters available in our store in the Elica cooker hood section from this link.

We also tend to steer people towards the Elica cooker hood vent kits that we use because, well they're just better. They work, they fit together properly and they were designed specifically for venting hoods, they just work.

Elica Service

Service levels, through the independent repairers, seems to be very good indeed with no issues known of on any of the products. In fact we rarely see the hoods failing.

The service that Elica provide is, frankly, exemplary. There's not much more to say about it as all too often the team at Elica will try to help diagnose any problems over the phone with you and then arrange for any spares that could be required to be sent to the repair agent in advance, this helps everyone hugely.

Outside of warranty almost any of the approved repairers listed on our free engineer search service will be able to help you with a any problem you might have with your cooker hood quickly and cheaply.

Are You Being Conned On Repairs?

Before you consider a fixed cost repair, which many manufacturers offer now, or get scared into taking out a "repair contract" because you're given stupidly high repair quotes on the phone please read this article first.  It will take you five minutes and could save you a lot of cash.
In some cases, you might not even be calling the manufacturer for service on their products at all, just a large call centre owned by a warranty company or insurer!
