    as said above the minimum rec distance as corgi state it , is 760 mm although if the hob manufacturer says less thats what to go by , as there instructions are the legal requirement , if i were you i would go for 760 or more then if you change the hob in future you will not have to move the hood

    Mine is 600mm, any higher and I think it would be a waste of time having a cooker hood.

    it should be a minimum of 600mm from the cooker top ,but how high you have it is up to you. I find screwing it to the ceiling a little bit pointless though!

    None of the other answers up to now are relevent, the instructions will give you the information, but there are also guidelines from each side.

    No less than 600mm.

    The distance between hob & hood are 800mm for gas hobs & 700mm for electric hobs

    When you purchase your cooker hood the fitting instructions will tell you. Good Luck.

    You should really ask the sales person before purchasing, then you can check if it actually fits (especially for low ceilings). If they can’t tell you, then you should press them to find out before handing over the money. Those bstards can be pushy!
