Kitchen Hood and Hobs

Only recently I know that it is really a big knowledge “大学问” to do the house renovation... not only the wet job part.. but also on the things you want to buy also thousand types and brands for selection... so is quite a kind of headache actually...

Which kitchen hobs and hood to buy? Fujioh? Fagor? Teka? Pacific? Pacifica? Rubine? Tellini? Rinnai? See I just cin cai spell also so many brands already...
I like Fujioh 1000LVD - Japan Made although the suction power is just 570M3/h, it noise level is very minimum only at 49db, but it seem very efficient and the rated efficiency is 95%... and I see the mechanism is very easy to clean type.. compare to my current hood Eerogaz... all the oil and glise stick on the hood and all over it inside as well... quite troublesome to clean up.. Also, I read a lot of online reviews also said Fujioh is very good.. even though I know I am not cooking everyday.. but still thinking to get one good and efficient one and it can last long enough and we don't need to change it.. the only stumbling block to Fujioh is it price... It is very expensive compare to the rest of the brands I had mentioned above... For the hobs, Fujioh also has the biggest fire or flame rating at 5.5 kW... which is very suitable for Asian style cooking...
Pacific/Pacifica - "Taiwan made" is famous for it big suction power, around 1000m3/h to 1400m3/h... due to its big suction power it is actually very noisy as well... but the big suction power Hood are not pretty at all.. they are slim type and need to attached to a cabinet on top... it has auto clean function.. but I wonder how efficient is the autoclean can be??? it sit on top of the burner and the holes is very big and everything doesn't filter and is suck all the way up and out... it look similar to my current Aerogaz hood... So just wondering how efficient is the auto clean function.. even my current hood, need to really wipe and clean with thick detergent only can be clean.. I can't imagine on ducting as well.. seem after years.. the ducting will be damn dirty due to it was all suck out without after filter.... the flaming rating is at 5.0 kW consider good for Asian cooking...
Tellini - Taiwan made, very similar to Pacific's slim hood... it also has auto clean function and it look exactly same like Pacific as well.. not sure whether is is OEM product.. but Tellini now is on promotion and the price is much much cheaper than Pacific... however, try to search online review.. seem no one uses it and comments anything about it.. Just wonder the after sales service and maintenance part... at least all other brand has their own show room and services center.. for Tellini, it only sell via dealer/cabinet carpenter and Jusco...

Teka/Fagor - German and Spain made, been told that there are more toward European style cooking types of system... the flame rating is around 3.0 kW only and and suction power is small and not that efficient for our Asian style of cooking.. so we let out this option...
There are many others brands.. but.. we have only short listed Fujioh or Pacific/Tellini... If can I hope can go for Fujioh... its technology seem really good!!

Hello, so how is your fujioh kitchen hood. You say the hood is able to suck up only 530m3/hr. is it sufficient to remove the grease and oil.

also how much may i know you paid for the hood.

YvOnNe Fong said...

yes.. although the suction power seem to be low.. but it is really efficient.. the kitchen is really not very oily and all the oil will capture in the oil tray on the hood.. price i dont remember already!! haha

I got a 2 burner fujioh hob. But can't use 2 burners simultaneously because the fire will turn small (very small). Do you have this problem?

YvOnNe Fong said...

no wor.. the fire is ok and we always use two burner at the same time... one for cook and another for soup normally..
