Sound workable, or put cabinet door with small small holes.

Hi All,

I have use Fotile more than 2 year+.
Until now it still look like new...no much oils and no much cleaning required. Maybe suction is strong.
I never use other brand before this is my 1st home and 1st hood/hod...i m happy with it and no regret.

I have fren use other brand and always complaint a lots oils on floor too and every times need to clean it after cook. Then i suggest him to try Fotile on his new condo and so far he is happy with the Fotile too.

BTW, i choose Fotile because of the modern design as well...a bit different from traditional design...hihi

Overall : Happy user.

Usually weak suction power is due to improper installation, could you take out the chimney and check this (as per photo)

You need to take out the "Grill".

Mine had lots of oil build up inside and need to clean after few months. Is hassle, and if not it will cause sticky build up. Some worse case will stick the flipper.

Hi dayalan86, Fujioh - downward sloping rectifier panel/baffle model or some other? Vented or recirculating? How much oil residue buildup after 14 years? Residue as in the kitchen. Telltale signs are yellowing doors esp if they are white.
*
Ours is not the sloping rectifier model, it is the cheaper version which is the FIT-150V (vented) model. The suction is good and there is no residue in the kitchen but the grease build up on the cooker hood filter itself makes it very difficult to clean especially if you're doing heavy cooking. As our kitchen is quite narrow, removing the baffle panel without spilling the oil build up is quite a challenge. And then comes the filter which cannot be washed off easily but then again due to the difficulty in washing the filter and drying it, we usually put off cleaning the cooker hood until the suction really becomes bad and this causes massive build up.

So when I was shopping for a new cooker hood, I wanted something that was easy to clean with a good suction.

I rmb they should b the same price. Shouldnt u ask the shop? If they did explain to you about the cons of using charcoal filter, i believe you wont get filter type in the first place.

From someone who actually used different brands like dayalan86 n me, the mesh filter hood is really difficult to clean n will cause the hood to be noisy if you don clean it. There was once i got fed up, i jus remove the filter.

Went to a shop nearby my house asking for eh10bq + gcg 90301 but the salesperson says this hob is an old model and has been discontinued for many years. So, how different is the gcg 90301 compared to gfg 86302?

Just got the following combination from JF Home USJ:

- Hood - Fotile EH10BQ
- Hob - Rinnai RB-3Si-C-S
- Oven - Rinnai RBO-7MSO

As I am not separating my wet and dry kitchen, I was looking for a good hood with strong suction that is not overly expensive. Fujioh hoods seem to get very good reviews, but it is out of my budget and frankly, looks quite ugly. After some contemplation, I decided to go with the popular choice here, hopefully it is a wise decision!

As for hob, I was quite impressed by the Rinnai inner flame series, but the higher end (read: Made in Japan) Schott Ceran glass ones are simply too expensive! When I was about to settle for a Fotile hob, I found out about this inner flame model from Rinnai which has a stainless steel top and cast iron support. Best of all the price is reasonable (me thinks). Decision made!

I am not really particular with ovens. To me, a basic European oven with bake/roast/grill functionality is good enough for our occasional use. The salesperson at JF initially introduced me a basic Fagor oven (6H-175-BX) which is made in Spain. However, after I've paid for it and came home, I did some research and found that Fagor Spain has actually declared bankruptcy protection end of last year! Despite reassurance from the salesperson, I was still quite worried with the after sales support and warranty issues. Fortunately, Mr. Ea from JF allows me to change to a different brand and model without paying extra! The new Rinnai oven is made in Italy, and supposedly has more features than the original Fagor model I've chosen, so I was very pleased with the change. Thumbs up to Mr. Ea for providing top notch service (and a great price)! thumbup.gif

Now I just need to wait patiently for my renovation to complete, and then only I can give an honest user review biggrin.gif

I am tempted to get the 2014 Fotile hob & hood GAG76202 + JQG9009. Any feedback & comment on this model?

Also, between CHS9006W & EH10BQ. Which is better & safer bet? CHS9006W seems to be newer model than EH10BQ.
