First, switch off your hood and remove the metallic grease filter. Fill a bucket with boiling water and adding about ¼ cup of baking soda. Use a brush to mix the solution until it is soapy and place your filters in the bucket. Make sure that the filters are completely submerged. Soak for 10 minutes, then scrub the filters with a non-abrasive scrub brush. Rinse the filters with hot water and wipe dry before placing them back into the hood. Selected Electrolux hood models have key functions that help shorten your cleaning time. For instance, the Power Boost function helps set the maximum airflow to up to 1,300m3/h to cut down cleaning time.
When cleaning your Electrolux hoods, keep in mind that they often come with multi-layer grease filters. Some models have a three-aluminum cassette grease filter, while others have a four- or five-layer grease filtration. Some hood models have a carbon filter for odour control, so check and read up about your model to ensure that it gets a proper, thorough clean.
A cooker hood installation service is normally included in the package when you purchase your hood from Electrolux. However, you can try to install a cooker hood on your own by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
For best results, your hood should be placed between 650mm and 750mm above your hob.
Cooker hoods are designed to remove gases, odours, and heat and steam from the kitchen. Some cooker hood benefits include improving air quality and removing excess heat. Most Electrolux hoods come with multi-layer grease filters to ensure maximum grease filtration and cleaner kitchens. Another key feature of Electrolux hoods is the Smoke and Vapour sensor, which automatically detects smoke and steam when you’re cooking.
Cooker hoods also provide additional lighting, which may come in handy when you’re preparing complex dishes. A cooker hood also helps prevent grease build-up, making after-dinner cleanup easier.
For cooker hood filter replacements, it is best to get in touch with the manufacturer to ensure that you get the correct filter for your hood. Do keep in mind that some Electrolux hoods have a three-aluminum cassette grease filter, while others have a four- or five-layer grease filtration.
