A short time ago we had a new kitchen fitted. We are very pleased with it apart from the condensation. The hob and hood are both made of glass.
When cooking on the hob we get condensation on walls and cupboard doors and you can see the steam right across the room and right up to the ceiling lights.
The condensation from the hood also drips down and forms a small puddle on the hob, or should it be necessary to remove the lid, could presumably fall into the saucepan.
The manufacturer’s service department say that during the winter months when central heating is on this is to be expected.
(We previously had a glass hob but the hood was integrated with the cupboards and was metal underneath the wood) and didn’t have any problems.
My question is whether, (having turned the hood on for quarter of an hour prior to cooking and leaving it on for quarter of an hour afterwards, together with ensuring that all saucepans have lids), any of you have experienced the condensation I described, which, whilst appreciating that we must accept some condensation, feel this is excessive?
I would really appreciate any comments - I am dreading all the extra cooking during the Christmas season at the moment, and cooking with the back door open is a bit chilly!
