Italian term or phrase: termocamino
Can anyone help me with the translation of this term in a list of products without further context. In internet, I've found "wood-burning oven", but it seems too generic. Thanks, Sarah.

range hood/vent

although "thermal hood" would be the exact translation, if these are in a kitchen I think that they are exaust and fanning appliances which are set above the stove/range/cooking appliance to dissipate the heat and moisture and draw it out of the environment.

This link is for a "thermal hood" as you can see it looks very different from a kitchen range hood

I see you posted another question and are specifically talking about a clay oven. If this question also pertains to the clay oven, it should be translated as "oven exhaust hood "
From the link below which specifically talks about clay ovens:

All tandoor ovens shall be installed under a Type I exhaust hood that complies withrequirements set forth in the applicable edition of the Uniform Mechanical Code and
the CCDEH Exhaust Ventilation Guidelines, except for the following:•A minimum of twelve-inch overhangs shall be provided on canopy hoods servingtandoor ovens.•Both solid fuel and gas fired tandoor ovens shall meet the airflow requirementsfor solid fuel burning equipment oven exaust &ei=U...

And yet...termocamino is, I think, quite a generic term. You can have it a legna (wood stove) or pellets, or gas, or whatever.

Ciao Sarah, sei sicura che il campo sia quello culinario?
Dalle mie conoscenze, i termocamini sono sistemi di riscaldamento che partono da un semplice camino a legna, il quale alimenta poi i termosifoni sparsi per la casa o simili. Certo se si vuole si può anche cucinare, ma non sono fornelli o cucine in senso proprio.

Notes to answerer
Asker: In fact, I'm not at all sure. The term occurs only in a list of other products made by the company, all the rest of which are definitely in the cooking sector, but my instinct tells me that this may be just what Giuseppina says. I'm putting the question to the client, together with some of your comments and hope he'll be able to clarify. Thanks tons.
