Hoover is a European brand which has a century old experience in home appliances. Every product is invented, modeled or improvised by completely understanding the customer requirements and fulfilling them. The company follows production standards contributing to sustainable environment and has tied up with charity organizations for a social cause. Hoover 60cm HGM 61 X Cooker Hood is a product from this experienced and responsible brand, the following review explains more about it.
This HGM 61 X Chimney hood has a 130 Watts motor and the extraction flow rate is 480 m3/h. It can operate in extraction mode and recirculation mode which can be decided as per the convenience of the user. If there is no provision for ducting then recirculation mode can be chosen. It has 4 levels of suction speed control. Depending on the level of fume while cooking the speed level can be chosen. It has push button control which makes the operation and switching over very simple.
Present in this model are the metal grease filter and charcoal filter. Grease is a resultant of cooking and it is a pain to clean the surfaces around the hob. These filters suck the grease and it keeps the surfaces around non sticky and clean. The filters will have to be cleaned regularly otherwise there are chances for fire. The metal grease filter can be removed once a month and washed with non-abrasive detergent or in a dishwasher on low temperature cycle. This makes maintenance an easy job. The carbon filters present in this hood are not washable and it is required to be replaced every 6 months to obtain the best performance.
No return valve:
This is a special and a very important feature which stops the cold air and the grease vapour from travelling down through the extractor from outside. This feature enhances the performance of the hood.
Hoover 60cm HGM 61 X Stainless Steel Hood offers excellent performance when it comes to extraction rate, noise level and illumination. The extraction rate is high which is 480 m3/h, the decibel level is less and as per rating it is only 56 dBa and it has two halogen lights of 20 watts each which illuminates the hob brightly.
