Faber Hood Tratto Plus LTW BK 60 Kitchen Chimney
Oil, ghee and butter dominate Indian cuisine. There is plenty of frying and sautéing and grilling, all of which releases a lot of smoke and oil into the air. This increases indoor air pollution and causes sneezing, coughing and irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. It also imparts a greasy and sooty look to kitchens due to constant oil deposition.
To solve this problem, one needs to install a chimney in the kitchen. In this segment, we are going to talk about the Faber Hood Tratto Plus LTW BK, a top-rated chimney for Indian households. It has a triple layer baffle filter and push buttons. It is 60 cm in size and generates an airflow of 1000 m3/h.
Let us study the technology and functions of the chimney in a little more detail.
Technology And Design
The Faber Hood Tratto Plus LTW BK is a quality hooded kitchen chimney with lifetime warranty. It has a 60-cm hood that fully covers the cooking stove. It is suitable for 2 to 4 burner hobtops and caters to an area of 200 ft2. For small to medium-sized kitchens, this is the perfect chimney. It expels oil-filled smoke and steam from the indoor air and keeps your kitchen free of grime.
The chimney boasts a triple-layer baffle filter. The filter panel has a curved surface which routes the air through a zig-zag channel. This causes the air molecules to change direction suddenly which leads to the smoke being separated from the oil. Since grease and food particles released during cooking are heavier than gas and water vapor molecules, they are unable to move rapidly through the multiple curved layers of the filter and get trapped in the panel. The smoke and steam, on the other hand, move easily though the filter and are ejected through the ducts to the outside.
Baffle filters can be cleaned in a dishwasher or by hand. If you are washing them by hand, first soak them in hot water and then scrub them gently with soap or dishwashing liquid. Allow them to dry fully before attaching them back on the frame. Baffle filters last a lifetime. They are easy to remove and clean. They only need to be washed once in 4 or 6 months which is pretty manageable.
The Hood Tratto Plus is powered by a 250-watt motor. It produces an airflow of 1000 m3/h for rapid removal of smoke, oil fumes, odors and heat from the kitchen. The motor produces very less noise and stays within 62 dB. The suction speed is variable. Depending on the amount of smoke and oil generated during cooking, you can set the speed at low, medium or high.
The chimney has a smart black housing with a curved glass top. It matches the aesthetics of a modular kitchen and blends in seamlessly with the décor of city apartments. A pair of LED lamps has been provided for lighting up the cooking area. They have a power of 1.1 watts each and are energy-efficient. They improve visibility and help you see what you are cooking. The chimney has push buttons. There are three buttons for managing suction speed and one for the lamp.
The appliance is wall-mountable. It is 60 cm wide, 49 cm deep and 72 cm high. It has a warranty of 1 year on the product and 12 years on the motor. A 12-year motor warranty is indeed impressive as most brands offer a maximum of 5 to 7 years warranty on the motor. In other words, you can be sure that you are investing in a quality product and be tension-free for years.
