WHY DO WE NEED A KITCHEN HOOD?

Kitchen Chimneys are one of the key essential appliances for your kitchen these days.In today’s busy life, we do not get too much time to clean up the kitchen on day to day basis.

While cooking Grease (oil droplets), hot air, odour, smoke is generated. Indian cooking is more oily, and we use frying and deep frying which generates even more grease. This fume if not removed efficiently, mixes with dust and becomes grime which is very difficult to remove. This will settle on the ceiling and kitchen cabinets and over time makes the kitchen dirty. Exhaust fan is not effective in removing the fumes before the oil particles settle on the walls and cabinets. It is easier to buy a hood than to clean the ceiling walls and cabinets every day
