2) they measure by air flow
3) hubby likes to do a lot of frying.
4) not sure yet but hubby's current chimney hood can't take his constant deep frying. need to replace charcoal filter every few months.
oh, the current brand that he is using is Faber. paiseh, not very sure the difference between recycling & ventilating type. i only know that there are only 3 models selling in SG.
1 is the FIT model, the 2nd is the 800DL model & lastly, is the updated version of the 800DL which is slightly shorter but the metal plate is shaped in a S-shape. u can see it at Hoe Kee or can get their brochures for a look. the brochure oso lists the price. my purchase comes with a free demo on how to use & clean the hood
I am looking at Rinnai hood & hob. I also looking at 3 burner model. Anyone can share experience? the electrical store at Jurong area which is popular in SB thread told me Rinnai is counted one of the good hob to compare. Btw how much suction power for the hood is then consider good enough? Any advice? Thanks!
Rinnai got 2 type of hood. One type using filter, meaning u change/ wash the aluminum filter regularly. Another type is using an oil pack, whereby oil is contained in 2 outlets & u pour away the oil after some time usage. The oil pack type one uses turbocco fan, whereas the other filter type doesnt use this technology. However, the sales told me the oil pack one will need to pour away the oil, clean the turbocco fan & also the aluminum filter. The filter type juz need to clean the aluminum filter, or one can buy disposable filter & throw away after usage. So maintenance wise seems that the oil pack one is more tedious. but my friend told us that turbocco fan is better. the sales said it is abt the same. in fact, the turbocco fan is ex by 20 bucks, but the sales said if want easy maintenance, buy for the filter type (which is a little cheaper also). Now we are kind of stucked. Dont know which to choose... Any1 can help to advise on which is a good choice? Appreciate your feedback.
Has anyone heard of Ellane hob and hood? There is a slim model EH-323 SS that can support air flow up to 720m3/h. The current package of B338SS Hob and EH-323 hood is $458. Anyone can share any experience? Thanks.
hi pst, i got rinnai hob & hood as recommended by a shop whom i known for yrs. she recommend this brand becos of the good comments she got from her customers. i hv not used it yet. only when the citygas come to connect it, got switch on to see only. but hv not use it in real so cannot comment further on it. all i can say is both look neat on the cabinets.
hi kero, i cant rem the model i got. i think there is only 2 models for the hood. i got a simple looking 3 burner, without those addtl metal "tray" on it one cos i prefer simple type & easier to clean also. as for the hood, we choose the filter type cos it is more metallic looking tat blend better into my cabinet. it got 3 mode of suction. neat looking i should say. i think other brand hv more variety. electrolux one is nice.
Planning to buy a cooker hood my for my resale flat. The previous owner had installed the hob but leaving an empty space for the hood (not for those chimney types). Do anyone know how much will be the installation charges? Just wondering, is the hood going to be mounted onto the wall or the kitchen cabinet?
Nope i havent heard of that brand. But if you ask me i would recommend you take Brandt products. Real good value for money. or if you have the money to spare and have a higher quality premium class products. go for DE Dietrich.
Both are french brand and most of their item are made in france. But De Dietrich is really superb. visit their showroom and before you know it you are hooked. One thing to take note is that their showroom is a NO SALES floor means that you will be attended to with no pushing of sales. Its under ElcoBrandt group
So you can go and have a look at brands like Brandt (cater to mid range consumers washer, dryer, ovens, hood, hob,etc)
Thomson (High end consumer looking for washer, dryer)
De Dietrich (higher end consumer looking for hood hobd, dishwasher)
They are all so good. its fantastic. and cos its a no sales floor you wun get pressurized about salesperson hogging you to a brand. there you ask whatever you want to ask. if they cannot answer, they get their technician immediately and have them come over to the showroom floor to answer your queries.
Be warned that De Dietrich is expensive but offers high quality products
Maybe u'll like to go down to citygas (PUB showroom) or Safe Store at Harbour Front for some window shopping. Citygas has a wide variety of brands on display and the sales personnel are very friendly and would give concrete advise.
