Why Do I Need a Range-hood?

Range-hoods are exhaust fans for your kitchen, which are designed to remove excess smoke, steam, grease and fumes while you cook. A good range-hood will keep your kitchen and the rest of the house clean and smelling fresh.

What Size Do I Need?
  • Measure the area you have to work with above your stove or cook-top
  • The range-hood should cover the entire cooking area
  • They generally come in 60 cm, 75 cm or 90 cm sizes
What about Smoke-Free Options?

The layout of your home can have an effect on how your range-hood vents the smoke and fumes from your kitchen. Make sure that you check which type of venting option best suits your home.

Ducted: Vents smoke and fumes to the outside of the home through ducted piping. They are not harder to install & they are the most effective means of removing cooking vapours completely. Keep the ducting as straight and short as possible, and never duct into the attic or another room.

What's The Word On Suction?
  • Range-hood power, the air extraction rate, is measured in m³/hr
  • Range-hoods with air extraction rates over 900m³/hr are in the more powerful range
What about the Lighting?

Ensure that there are enough lights on your range-hood. The more light you have, the easier it is to judge the timing of your cooking.

What should be the position of range-hood?

Kitchen vapours can be extracted most efficiently when the Range-hood is mounted directly above the Cook-Top. This stops vapours mixing with the surrounding air and prevents excessive odour distribution. 65 cm distance from the Cook-Top is ideal. We would recommend no more than 90 cm.

Do I need to tear off the film on the range hood's decoration cover?

After installing the range hood, remove the protective film. If the film is removed after already using the range hood, evenness of coloration may be affected and the glue from the protective film will be difficult to remove from the stainless steel finish.


Is 10A socket applicable for the hood?

It is acceptable.

What shall be paid attention to for the daily cleaning and maintenance of range hood?

(1) Cleaning is recommended once a year, and the hood shall be timely cleaned after cooking every time. Regular cleaning of range hood can effectively avoid the occurrence of oil dropping and spilling, etc.

(2) Do not use the scouring pad, steel wool, stiff brush or other rough tools when cleaning, but use soft cloth instead;

(3) It is strictly prohibited to use acid alkali cleaner, and neutral detergent shall be used to clean the oil screen once every three months, etc.


Are Kattich Rangehoods Inverter friendly?

Yes, they are. Most of the kattich hoods take power between 150 W to 200 W.

What's the best way to clean the surface of my range hood?

Stainless steel hoods should be washed regularly with a clean cloth, warm water and mild soap or dish detergent. Clean in the direction of the polish lines. Rinse well with clear water and wipe dry immediately. You may wish to apply light oil used for furniture polishing to emphasize its bright finish. Wiping regularly with mild soap/detergent and warm water should protect painted range hood surfaces. Be cautious about using "New and Improved" cleaning agents. Your range hood is installed over hot cooking equipment. Most chemicals found in cleaning agents react with heat to loosen paint.

How to get best performance from Range-hood?

A correctly designed range-hood will offer maximum performance provided you follow these basic rules: Close doors or windows near the cook-top in order to prevent air turbulence that can disperse vapours, reducing the efficiency of the range-hood. Your range-hood should be turned on before cooking commences in order to create a stable and constant airflow funnel whilst preventing the build-up of humidity and moisture on the underside of the range-hood. Select an intermediate speed for cooking; maximum speed should only be used for intense cooking such as stir-fries. Leave the range-hood on after you have finished cooking or by the use of the delay timer as this will remove any residual vapours and help air circulate. Periodically clean the filters to maintain efficiency. Use the recommended ducting kit; do not reduce the size or the diameter of the ducting. Install at the recommended height as every 10cm can reduce the effectiveness of the range-hood up to 20%. If 450 or 900 bends are more, prefer buying high extraction rate range-hood.
