What features should a kitchen chimney have?
An electric chimney comes with a host of benefits — it not only keeps the cooking odour away but it also protects your kitchen walls and tiles from getting dirty and sticky. Also, an electric kitchen chimney’s design resonates with modern as well as traditional kitchens, blending seamlessly with the decor. However, if you are planning to buy a chimney, you must know that not all chimneys are equal.
Here are key features that you must look out for maximum efficiency:
1. Hood of the chimney: The choice of correct hood type depends on the size of your kitchen and where your cooktop is placed. Wall-mounted hood chimneys are popular in India. A wall-mounted chimney is fixed on the wall just above the cooktop.
2. High suction power: Before you make up your mind to buy a chimney, take a look at the size of the kitchen, ventilation and your cooking habits. These factors are essential when it comes to deciding the suction power. We have chimneys with different suction powers, starting from 800±50m³/Hr to 1400±50m³/Hr. If your daily cooking involves a lot of deep-frying, then go for a chimney with high suction power.
3. Filterless technology: Chimneys with filterless technology are gaining popularity in India. As these chimneys do not have filters, there is no hassle of cleaning, making them convenient.
4. Autoclean technology: A pioneer in the kitchen chimney brand, we introduced auto clean technology in India. Our auto clean kitchen chimneys are designed in a unique manner that allows all the oil and grease to collect in a drip tray which can be easily removed, emptied and put back. We have recently launched i-Autoclean chimneys where the built-in intelligent system takes care of your cleaning schedule. The system, using artificial intelligence, does the cleaning on its own without you having to even lift a finger.
5. Sleek design: Choose a chimney that complements your kitchen decor and gives it a modern appearance. All our chimneys are made of stainless steel and have enhanced glass top finish, which makes them not just durable but also stylish.
6. Warranty and post-sales service: For best user experience, always check for warranty and post-sales service. As one of the leading chimney brands in India, we offer a lifetime warranty on the motors. Not just that, with our annual maintenance contract, you can keep your chimney in good condition always.
