Let us get into the details of each one.
Different types of Kitchen Filters Available:
- Cassette filter
A cassette filter is made up of aluminium mesh. Oil particles get stuck on to this mesh thus affecting the chimney’s suction power. This type of chimney needs frequent cleaning – say once in a week for an optimum performance. The best way to wash a cassette filter is to soak them in detergent water and for better results you can scrub it too.
2. Baffle filter (Most suitable for Indian Kitchen)
It is truly the best for an Indian Kitchen, since it is full of masala food. A baffle is a flow control panel. When smoke passes through this baffle filter, its curve changes the direction of the smoke air as a result of which grease and smoke particles are deposited at the bottom. Its suction power remains largely unaffected. It needs very less cleaning, say once in 3 months. A baffle filter is known for its longevity.
3. Carbon Filter:
Carbon Filter is mainly used for its odor absorption property. A carbon filter assists a baffle filter or cassette filter. It needs replacement in as much as 6 months.
