Chimneys are an integral kitchen appliance. They keep kitchen smoke and fumes away from the kitchen, while providing a clean-burning fire that is needed for cooking. But with so many different types of chimneys available in India, how do you know which one to buy? In this blog post, we will help you determine what type of chimney best suits your needs based on size requirements and budget.
What is a kitchen chimney and what are its benefits?
A kitchen chimney is a type of kitchen appliance that helps to remove smoke from the kitchen. Kitchen chimneys are needed for cooking, as they provide heat and help minimize the risk of harmful fumes flowing into the kitchen space. Chimneys come in various sizes with different features such as stainless steel or cast iron construction, fire doors at both ends, vents on one side only – which can be left open during operation or closed when not in use.
Some have adjustable levels of airflow so you can control how much air will flow through your chimney based on what needs to be done after it’s installed- if anything else must remain inside during cooking like an oven door then less ventilation should be used while more venting may need to take place if you’re going to be cooking using direct fire.
When should I have my chimney cleaned and inspected?
A chimney should be inspected and cleaned before the first use, as well as after each season of cooking. Some kitchen chimneys have inspection doors that can be opened to allow for a visual examination of your flue without climbing on a ladder or using the equipment.
How much suction power needed for a small kitchen?
A kitchen chimney should be sized based on suction power, which can range from 100 to 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM). For a smaller kitchen, you can opt for the 60cm models.
Do all kitchen chimneys come with oil collectors?
Some kitchen chimneys come with oil collectors, which are designed to help contain kitchen grease in a closed system. Most of the premium models launched in the last couple of years came installed with oil collectors.
Who should opt for a ductless chimney?
A kitchen chimney with ductless technology is appropriate for people who have a small kitchen and can’t afford to install an expensive, traditional kitchen chimney.
How does the auto-clean feature works?
The kitchen chimney with auto-clean technology comes installed with a sensor that detects kitchen grease and automatically starts the cleaning process. It can also be manually turned on.
