Kitchen chimney: Important parts

The effectiveness of your kitchen chimney depends on its suction power, filters and motor. These are the three most important factors to consider when investing in a kitchen chimney for your home.

Kitchen chimney suction

The suction power of the kitchen chimney will determine its capacity to remove oil particles and odour. The chimney suction power is measured in cubic metres per hour (m3 per hour). While kitchen chimneys are available with varied suction capacities, ranging from 700-1,600 m3/hr, the ideal suction power of a kitchen chimney for Indian homes should be around 1,000 m3/hr.

Kitchen chimney filter

The filter has a direct bearing on the suction efficiency of your kitchen chimney.

Kitchen chimney: Sizes

Kitchen chimneys in India are available in mainly two sizes – 60 cm and 90 cm. While the 60 cm kitchen chimney is meant for homes with two-burner stoves, the 90-cm kitchen chimneys are ideal for three or four-burner stoves. Standard chimneys come in two ft and three ft height.

Kitchen chimney price in India in 2022

In India, you can get a kitchen chimney at the starting price of Rs 4,000. However, kitchen chimney prices start to reach Rs 10,000 – Rs 15,000 as you opt for superior brands with high-capacity and fine quality.

Kitchen chimney: Maintenance

Kitchen chimney maintenance could be a tedious task. Unless your kitchen chimney is an auto-clean model, you have to clean it twice a month, at least. To be able to clean your kitchen chimney easily, it must be installed at an adequate height – the higher up it is, the more difficult it would be to reach it. With that goal, install the kitchen chimney at a height of four or five ft.

Kitchen chimney: Benefits

Better health for you and your kitchen: Cooking Indian meals involves a lot of frying, roasting, sautéing and sputter-inducing tadka. This means your kitchen will get a lot of greases and oily grime, making the entire area sticky and dirty. This is where your kitchen chimney comes into the picture. By making your kitchen free from oil, smoke and odour, the kitchen chimney has a direct impact on the health of the kitchen and the residents.

Kitchen chimney: Disadvantages

Expensive: Kitchen chimneys do pose an additional monetary burden.

High maintenance: They require regular cleaning and maintenance.
