For your ELBA Rangehood
The following are basic tips for getting the most out of your ELBA rangehood.
Proper Use of Your Rangehood
Turn on the hood for a few minutes before you start to cook in order to create an airflow that carries odors and steam into the rangehood.
Low speeds are sufficient when cooking pasta and sauces, which don’t have strong odor or vapors.
Higher speeds are used for cooking that emits strong odors and steam, like when frying or grilling or when several burners are being used at the same time.
Once you are finished cooking, leave the hood on for 5-10 minutes. This will ensure that all the steam, grease, odors and smoke have been eliminated from the kitchen and your home.
Cleaning Your Rangehood
Painted Hoods (non-stainless steel hoods)
Black and white hoods can be cleaned using a damp sponge or cloth and hot soapy water. Windex® can also be used.
Stainless Steel Hoods
You can use any retail stainless steel cleaner to clean and polish your stainless rangehood. Examples are: Stainless Steel Magic®, Zep®, Bar Keepers Friend ®, WD-40®, Goo-Gone Orange Spray® or Cerama Bryte Stainless Cleaner® brand stainless cleaner. Do not use Windex® or other ammonia based cleaners on stainless steel.
Never use chlorine bleach, or any product that contains bleach on a stainless surface, as the hood could be permanently discolored. Never use abrasive cleaners or scrub pads, or alcohol-based cleaners.
When wiping or polishing the hood, always wipe with the grain of the stainless steel. A soft cloth and hot soapy water can also be used for cleaning the stainless steel hoods. Microfiber cloths are excellent for removing fingerprints and smudges in between cleanings.
Cleaning Grease Filters
Aluminum mesh Grease filters or Baffle style grease filters can be washed in the dishwasher. They should be cleaned at least once a month, and more frequently depending on usage. If there is heavy grease build up on the filters, then place the filters in a pan of hot soapy water and soak the filters.
You should change the charcoal filters approximately every six months.
Charcoal filters cannot be cleaned; the odor absorption power of the charcoal inside the filter declines over time and needs to be replaced eventually.
