Things Consider Choosing Perfect Hood
Create The Perfect Atmosphere For The Perfect Meal
Things Consider Choosing Perfect Hood. Hood clear the air silently and stylishly. With it emphasis on stir-frying and steaming. Asian cooking creates a lot of vapour, grease and odour in the air. And yet, more and more modern Asian households are adopting a European open kitchen model. For this you need a hood that cleans the air with a combination of powerful air extraction and low noise.
Do you do a lot of steaming, deep-frying and stir-frying?
Look for a hood with air suction rate above 800 cubic metres an hour. The bigger the kitchen, the higher the suction rate you need.
Is Your Kitchen Open To Your Main Living Area?
Look for a hood that operates at a low noise level, no louder than normal conversation.
Silent Performance Hoods powerful for everyday use, these are ideal for open plan kitchens, as they operate at volumes no louder than normal conversation, so you can chat with your dinner guests without having to raise your voice. These hoods feature an active carbon filter to eliminate odours, in combination with a multi-layer aluminum grease filter that’s a breeze to clean.
Slim line or chimney?
Consider a powerful chimney hood if your home allows venting through the kitchen wall to the outside. Otherwise, choose a compact slim line hood, which filters recirculated air without needing to vent it out.
Slim line hoods real space-savers, these models are perfect for compact kitchens. Their colours complement your kitchen decor, and they are easy to install, clean and maintain. These hoods feature an Active Carbon Filter and a multi-layer aluminum grease filter to eliminate odours.
Is Cleaning And Maintenance A Concern?
To operate your hood on re-circulation mode, you’ll likely need to clean the grease filters more frequently and change Active Carbon Filter. So choose a grease filter that is smaller and quick to remove, for easier cleaning.
High-powered hoods operating in extraction mode do not require Active Carbon Filters, which means no replacement is needed.
What other things should you look for?
While other hoods are difficult to keep clean, with many hard to reach gaps that trap oil, choose the one with hood canopies that have a smooth, seamless underside for easier wipe-down after every use. Gleaming stainless steel blends tasfully with any kitchen decor and give you all the polish of a professional kitchen.
After you finish cooking, you’ll want to refresh the air in your kitchen. Look for a hood with a delay timer feature that first ventilates the air before switching itself off.
