Cooker hoods

How do I clean the activated carbon/charcoal filters in my hood?

Resolution

Activated carbon/charcoal filters cannot be cleaned or washed – they must be replaced. Activated Carbon Filters are used to neutralise odours when your hood is recirculating air around the kitchen. Carbon filters should be replaced when they are noticeably dirty or discolored (usually every 6 to 12 months, depending on hood usage). Tested and approved filters can be ordered directly from us.

How do I clean the metal grease filter in my extractor hood?

Resolution

Remove the filters according to the instructions in the Use & Care Guide. Drain and wipe all excess grease with a dry paper towel. Soak the filters in hot water and detergent and gently brush in the water to loosen food particles. Do not use products containing ammonia, abrasives or oven cleaners. Rinse the filters and let them dry before placing in the extractor hood. Filters may also be cleaned in an automatic dishwasher (please do not include any other items or cutlery in the wash). Washing the filters in a dishwasher may result in slight discoloration. You can spray them beforehand with our tested and approved Degreaser for even better results. We recommend grease filters be cleaned every 1-3 months depending on usage.

How should I protect stainless steel surfaces from marking?

Resolution

You can treat the surface with a tested and approved oil impregnated Conditioning Cloth (can be ordered from us) will assist fingerprint and mark resistance. Some people use baby oil or similar products on stainless steel. However, these products do not work as they attract dust and fluff, causing a residue to form. The same Conditioning Oil as in the cloths can be ordered in a bottle from us. It is food-safe and can be used on surfaces which are in contact with food.

What do I have do consider when cleaning my extractor hood?

Resolution

Wipe away grease stains, change carbon filters (for recirculating units only), and wash grease filters on a regular basis. Warning: Do not use the extractor hood without the filters in place or with grease-filled filters or surfaces. To avoid risk of fire and explosion, do not use flammable liquids or solvents. Always unplug or disconnect the appliance from the power supply before servicing. Always be sure the entire hood (including filters and light bulbs) has cooled and grease has solidified before attempting to clean any part of the appliance. The efficiency of the extractor hood depends on the cleanliness of the intake and filters. Cleaning frequency depends on the frequency and type of cooking.
