Kitchen Chimney’s are a must today because the old ways of a separate kitchen are gone.

Now all new houses have an open kitchen directly visible from the living room. Rather some idiot builders are making kitchens in the living room calling it a compact house.

The real reasons for kitchen chimney is the smell and oil.

Its worse to have a sofa smelling of fish just because your wife cooked fish yesterday. And also the expensive furniture, electronics, curtains, ceiling get covered in oil over a prolonged period.

So the kitchen chimney will take off all the fumes from the gas burner so will buy the cheapest.

WRONG

Its not about the price its about the need and some people like me do need the highest capacity.

For show the cheap 5000 bucks chimney is good enough its primary for house decor (since all chimneys look identical from outside)

If its casual 2 persons cooking while lunch is in office and dinner is a parcel and need to just warm food or make tea in the mornings the 650 cubic is good enough.

Cubic = Suction capacity

If its a family of 4 with regular Indian styled veg health concious cooking the 750 cubic is good enough.

If its a family of 4 with regular non-veg / oily cooking the 750 cubic is good enough.

If its a large family of 6 with veg, very oily (like bhajiya) and non veg cooking then 1200 cubic is recommended.

There are different types of filters the most recommended is the baffle filter which has a tray to collect oil rising as fumes. But the filter should be open able or very difficult to clean.

The motors are 2 types. Plastic housing and metal housing. The metal housing is recommended because with regular operation oil gets collected in the blade and on the motor housing which reduces the air flow. Metal heats quicker than plastic so oil accumulated on it will drip down to the baffle filter so keeping it clean for a bit longer period.

TRICKS BY SHOP OWNERS
-——————————-

  • some keep a magnet arround… they say the non magnetic is better than the magnetic the buyer say in some other showroom (god know if it was magnetic) BUT practically it really doesn’t matter in actual operations.
  • they keep a large empty cartoon to show the suction capacity. As soon as the chimney is switched on its sucked up. WOW thats powerful but the chimney is ment for sucking the fumes not the cardboard box. place an agarbatti near the dummy gas stove and see how quickly the fumes are pulled up. (it will be faster because oil fumes are heavier and rise due to heat).

All chimneys are available either in 60 or 80 width

the ones in 60 are usually upto Rs.15,000 max (upto 1000 cubic)

the ones in 80 are usually upto Rs.28,000 max (upto 1500 cubic)

Please read the review again. first identify your need for speed (literally) then compare from different makes and portals.

If you go for cheapest possible without the above, within 6 months you would list it on quikr to sell at throw away price.

Nice article.

Do you have any recommendations for 1000 t 1200 cc capacity?
I have non-veg been cooked daily in my house and have been pondering over a high powered exhaust fan or chimney.

All chimney’s are more or less same from outside what really matters is the filter and the motor capacity.

More importantly how it behaves after 1 year of all the oil and soot accumulated after heavy usage.

Just increasing the suction capacity changes the price by 10,000 bucks.

I have been busy with my own office work for last 1 month plus different conferences and training camps from vendors will take some time out and see whats there available in the physical market.

Guys who have heavy cooking and only relying on exhaust fan I have a simple solution.

There are 2 products available in the market
1) Easy off bang : Green
2) Mr Muscle : Kitchen cleaner.

Just spray liberally on the exhaust fan blades and grill and let it stay for 20 minutes. use a kitchen knife not used anymore to just judge off the remaining grime. These 2 products are fantastic in eating away all the oil stuck on the fan. No scrubbing required. I rather use both. 1st the Easyoff and then Mr. muscle because both are slightly different and very effective in cleaning. Don’t use the Mr. Muscle on Paints like fridge door, its quite strong to dis-colour it.
