How clean is your stove hood ?

chefwong | Jul 21, 2008 07:20 PM

I have a Best K260 stove hood. There are things I can complain about like the fact that it's not it draws air from the bulbs on the hood, etc which is a bad design IMO.

However, this one has got me stumbled or maybe all hoods are like this. The height of the hood is somewhere around 5'6" AFF or something along the lines.

However, the whole front of the hood does get a little grease residue on it over time and I do the occasional wipedown during cleaning sundays. However, I saw the install of it, and I'm pretty confident all the duct seals are good *especially the one the mounts the duct to the collar of the hood*.

Does all hoods in general accumulate/get slightly greasy with use ?

I was expecting the hood to be a wonderall and draw/exhaust everything out.

Granted, I guess cooking style comes to play, but the run of the hood is extremely short so I'm pretty fine with the CFM
