Better than ever
NOTHING beats home-cooked Asian dishes, but these dishes can lead to a greasy kitchen and the smoke from the stovetop often travels to the rest of the house. To minimise the mess, Rinnai has developed a cooker hood that is sturdier and easier to clean – the RH-C809-GB 90cm chimney hood promises a more powerful extraction hood that promotes better ventilation, air recirculation and a better storage of extracted oil.
The cooker hood motor operates at 400 Watts (W), which compared with the conventional 220W to 260W is the most powerful in its series. Also, unlike most motors that are made from plastic, this model is built from aluminium. The higher powered and sturdier material helps create stronger spins as well as a more driven wind volume for better suction power. The four-speed setting provides more precise control.
Rinnai has also armed the cooker hood with extra protection against grease – the “delay” function continues to extract the cooking fumes for 15 minutes after being turned off. Rinnai has equipped the RH-C809GB model with better and easier-to-use baffle filters. The design, similar to combs lined upside down and interchanging with each other, traps oil-filled air travelling upwards and pushes the grease downwards on to the metal blades at the bottom.
Rinnai Marketing Manager, Jean Se says that with baffle filters, the grease stays on the tray instead of sticking to the mesh, “Baffle filters produce less noise and don’t need to be cleaned as regularly as mesh ones, so it’s easier to maintain. Since they are usually made of aluminium or stainless steel, you can just put them in the dishwasher.”
As some home cooks have commented on how baffle filters need to be unscrewed at the edges while being retrieved for cleaning, Rinnai has built the filters using hooks instead of screws and has also done away with screws for the baffle filter – hinges are used to attach the filters to each other instead. There is also larger storage for the absorbed grease as Rinnai has installed a sleeker, thicker and elongated oil bar that runs along the entire hood. It doesn’t just look better – it decreases the times you’ll have to empty the oil as well as cleaning the oil bar. This companion isn’t just helping with keeping your kitchen clean – the LED light bar gives you a clearer view of what you’re cooking in a dark kitchen. The sleek style of the cooker hood also features a sensor touch control for ease of use – all you need to do is swipe.
