What does the cooker hood carbon filter do?
When cooking food, as we all know moisture and odours escape into the atmosphere. The carbon filter is important for removing odours whilst the hood is recirculating air around the kitchen. It does this by absorbing moisture, grease and smoke while you cook. Most cooker hoods have a carbon filter and a grease filter. The carbon filter is particularly important if your hood does not have outside venting.
When you need to replace it
You ideally need to replace the charcoal filter in your cooker hood every 3 to 12 months, depending on how much you like to cook. When the filter becomes clogged it is important to change it as soon as possible because your hood won't function to the best of its ability, as the motor will have to 'labour'. The following are signs that the filter may need replacing:
Odours are not being trapped as effectively as before
Smoke is not being extracted efficiently
The filter is filled with dirt and has become saturated
Suitable for select Bauknecht, Ikea, Juno, Laden, Neutral, Private Label and Whirlpool models.
