If you are someone who loves cooking, you should definitely get yourself a kitchen chimney. It makes cooking more convenient. It reduces smoke, prevents breathing problems and lights up the area around the stove.
In this article, we are going to introduce you to one of the top kitchen chimneys in India. It is the Glen 6075 SS Pyramid chimney and it is highly recommended for Indian style cooking. It has a pair of baffle filters which root out grease and steam. It has an Italian motor with Thermal Overload Protector and an airflow rate of 1000 m3/h.
Let us analyze the functions and features of the chimney in a little more detail.
Technology And Design
The Glen 6075 SS Pyramid is a classic 60-cm hooded chimney. It fully covers the cooking area in order to be able to suck out all the smoke released during cooking. It has a powerful copper-winding Italian motor with a peak power of 155 watts.
The motor housing and the fan are made from superior flame retardant plastic for better safety. The motor also has Thermal Overload Protector which shields the circuitry from sudden surges in current. It turns of the motor in case of excessive heat build-up due to overload. It makes sure the motor lasts longer and operates flawlessly without any breakdowns.
The chimney has an airflow of 1000 m3/h which is sufficient for drawing out huge amounts of cooking smoke and oil floating around in the kitchen air. It promptly and efficiently pumps out the polluted air and prevents grease from settling on walls, tiles, floors, ceiling, cabinets and appliances.
The Glen Pyramid chimney has two stainless steel baffle filters for trapping oil droplets and solid food particles. Baffle filters are best suited for Indian style cooking. They have a unique multi-layered curved surface that forces the incoming air to move in a zig-zag pattern.
The air molecules ‘cut and chop’ and change direction in sudden spurts resulting in the separation of the oil and solids from the water vapor and smoke. The oil and solids stick to the surface of the filter panel while the smoke and water vapor are thrown out of the house through ducts.
A big advantage of baffle filters is that they last a lifetime. They are easily removable and washable. All you need to do is detach the panels from the frame, soak them in hot water for about 15 minutes to soften the oil and food particles sticking to it. Then, scrub them gently with a bit of dishwashing liquid or soap. Rinse in normal tap water and put them out to dry. Once they are fully dry, affix them back to the frame and they are ready to be used again. For best performance, we suggest you wash the filters once every 3 or 4 months.
The Glen 6075 SS chimney has a high-quality stainless steel enclosure with a smart matt finish. It is 600 mm wide, 500 mm deep and 750 mm high. It weighs 8.5 kg.
The chimney has push buttons in front to manage its functions. There are 3 speed settings: low, medium and high. For increasing the light in the cooking area, the chimney has 2 LED candle bulb lamps with a total power of 6 watts. They enhance visibility over and around the burners, and make preparations easier.
The chimney has a rated voltage of 220 – 240 volts, 50 Hz. It has a current of 1.5 Amp. All wires and cables are made from copper and flame retardant plastic so that they last longer. The chimney comes with a one-year warranty on the complete product and a six-year extended warranty on the motor.
