5 Easy Tips To Maintain Your Cooker Hood

A kitchen chimney works to ensure that your kitchen is completely free of harmful air and odours. To ensure that it keeps giving you such good results for a long time, you must clean and maintain it regularly. While this may sound like quite a task, you’ll be astonished to know that it doesn’t really require much effort to clean a good quality cooker hood. So, at Hafele Appliances - we bring you 5 easy maintenance tips, which will ensure that your kitchen cooker hood stays squeaky clean and shiny all the time!

1. Always Keep The Filters Clean

The first rule of ensuring that your cooker hood functions properly for a long time is to clean its filters every two weeks. To make this process easier, most Hafele wall-mounted cooker hoods come with durable aluminium mesh filters.

These not only suck in all the airborne grease effectively but are also super easy to clean and maintain! Simply soak and clean the filters in a combined solution of warm water and detergent to unclog the pores. Ensure to dry thoroughly before installing them back inside the chimney.

However, if you are not cut out for regular cleaning, you can also opt for Häfele’s wide range of filter-free electric chimneys for the kitchen. Being one of the first brands to come up with this technology, our Teresa i90 is an excellent filter-free cooker hood within this range. Its smoke management system extracts all the grease and smoke from your kitchen, just as effectively as a filtered one!



2. Deal with Chimney Leaks Swiftly!

Ever wondered what happens if you skip cleaning those chimney filters? The blocked grease will not only disrupt the smooth running of the chimney but the oil drips down from the filters to the surface of your hob. These oil drips may drop in your food, leading to contamination or even drop on the open flame!

We suggest you never ignore these oil leaks as they are a sign that your chimney filters need to be cleaned thoroughly! Furthermore, Hafele also provides cooker hoods that prevent chimney leaks. The Hafele Datura Plus range of wall-mounted hoods come with an anti-drip filtration technology. These hoods have special types of filters, which don’t get blocked with grease after a period of time and essentially prevent any dripping from happening on the hob surface, even if the chimney is due for maintenance!

3. Wipe The Hood Interiors Frequently

While the filters are soaked, you can use this chance to clean the interiors and exhaust ducts of the chimney. After using the chimney for a long time, it is possible for dirt and grease to seep through to the inner surfaces and stick to them.

To remedy this, Hafele cooker hoods give you easy access to corners as well as a detachable smoke panel to enable easy deep cleaning. You can clean the interiors by dabbing a non-abrasive cleaning agent (manufacturer recommended) onto a soft sponge, and then wiping down these surfaces.

4. Use The Cooker Hood At Adequate Power Settings

How you run your kitchen chimney certainly decides how long it may last in your kitchen! For example - While making spicy food or deep-frying, it is ideal to set the chimney at a high setting. But if you are merely brewing tea, running your chimney at a minimum speed setting might be enough to deal with the steam.



This is where the highly ergonomic speed controls of the Hafele Appliances wall-mounted hoods can come in handy. This is because they will easily allow you to control the rate of extraction with precision for different cooking styles.

However, if you want to forgo the effort of modulating the rate of extraction yourself, our range of filter-free chimneys are more your style! This is because they come with an intelligent smoke management system that modulates its speed accordingly on AUTO mode, as per the grease and cooking smoke that exists in your kitchen.

5. Take Care of The External Surface of The Chimney

Lastly, a weekly wipe-down of the outer surface of the chimney will ensure that it will stay dirt-free and gleaming every day. You can use a dry cloth for regular cleaning or even a cloth dampened with a mild cleaning agent if there is more build-up on the surface. A clean and shining chimney will serve to amplify the beauty of your modern kitchen!
