Glen GL 6052 Kitchen Chimney
If you are concerned that your kitchen becomes too smoky when you cook, you should probably get yourself a kitchen chimney. It is a smart way to reduce smoke, grease and odors. It prevents pungent cooking fumes from spreading throughout the house and making everyone cough and sneeze.
A kitchen chimney is especially essential for Indian style cooking. It ventilates the oily smoke thrown up during ‘tadka’ and keeps indoors fresh and odor-free.
In this segment, we are going to introduce you to the Glen GL 6052, a leading kitchen chimney with an airflow rate of 1000 m3/h. It is 60 cm in size and features an Italian motor with Thermal Overload Protection. Let us do a deep-dive into the features and design of the GL 6052.
Technology And Design
The Glen GL 6052 is a premium chimney with dynamic airflow. It has two baffle filters which channel the incoming air though multiple curved paths to separate the grease and food particles from the air. As the smoke makes its way through the device, the oil and solids stick to the filter panels while the residual smoke and moisture are routed out of the house through the ducts.
The baffle filters of the GL 6052 are made from durable stainless steel. They are designed to last a lifetime and do not need to be replaced. You can wash the panels from time to time, depending on the accumulated dirt. Just soak them in hot water and scrub with a mild dishwashing liquid or soap. Rinse under a tap and allow them to dry fully before clipping them back into the frame.
The chimney has a voltage of 220-240 volts and current of 1.5 Amp. It has a 100% pure copper winding Italian motor. The motor consumes 155 watts power and has a flame retardant plastic housing. It generates a suction of 1000 m3/h which is strong enough to draw out smoke even from surrounding areas. The motor has Thermal Overload Protection. It safeguards the circuitry from overheating and burning out.
The Glen GL 6052 has an elegant design with a glass front panel. It has a minimalistic frame with a stainless steel finish. It has soft push buttons for controlling power, airflow speed and lighting. There are 3 speed levels which you can adjust as per your requirement. 2 LED lamps are provided for lighting up the cooktop. The lamps are energy-efficient and have a total power of 4 watts.
The chimney functions like an exhaust. It expels hot air from the kitchen and keeps the indoor temperature cool. It is wall-mountable and has a ducting system to channel out the smoke. The appliance measures 60 cm by 50 cm by 60 cm. It weighs 11 kg. The diameter of the air outlet is 100 mm (4 inch) / 150 mm (6 inch).
