I hate how there is a glass that opens out on the Fotile V hood. Somebody might bang their head on it
For that kind of price, I will get the more elegant Teka DVL 90

One product can't fit all, unlike rice one type of rice 100s type of people eat. As for me, I won't use such a long pot to make soup.

sorry but I am still not convince about this Fotile V hood design.

1. if you are tall, the glass baffle might obstruct your view

2. if you are short, you might hit your head on the glass baffle

3. the hood is too low, all the oil, kicap, sauce, etc may end up on the glass surface and you will have to clean it after every cooking session For normal Chimney hood, it is set high, no sauce or bits of food can travel that high meaning less mess to clean up

4. the opening of the baffle is too small, I think this is making it noisy as air rushes through it.

5. the opening of the filter holes are too big so all the oil droplets will land inside the motor assembly and housing.

I am curious to learn how the 3D curtain thing works. Is there a bunch of electrodes along the rim to generate anion as claimed?

mine does says the difference if choose gas or electric
the answer is simple - gas is an open flame, electric is not

You should offer to go to your "showroom" smile.gif

Your point make sense, also because gas have this stand to hold the cooking wok/pan that lift the wok higher.

Hey guys and gals!

I'm just curious. Has anyone been to Canton I in The Gardens' Basement Food Court? The kitchen opens into the dining room so you can see all the activity behind the scenes. There isn't even a glass panel dividing the two areas. They are using dragon's breath gas burners for woks (and the menu is a huge clue as to what type of cooking they do).

But, you can't smell anything coming from the kitchen at all. I had to keep asking my sister if there was something wrong with my nose. It seems they use baffle filtered hoods from what I saw. If not, maybe cyclonic (since the two are rather similar in appearance).

I suppose the key is maintenance. Commercial kitchens need to have their equipment working at maximum efficiency to be able to keep the level of output they need to produce.

Anyways, just sharing what was in my head. smile.gif

Is a very powerful suction they have, and all custom build. My cousin have a custom build in his kitchen, and using the high power flame burner too. Flame can go up to 2ft without any problem.

I was informed by a sales person that a hood with suction power of 1000 and 1400 wouldn't make a difference if I'm going for recycling and not ducting.

Is that true?
*
Recycling the more power you use, your air circulation will be faster but if the filter not design accordance to the flow rate it won't be able filter much.

Recycling type you need to change the filter more frequent.

Depend on model, if you only do basic cooking not like asia style both gas will work. Electrolux will have better after sales service.

If you want really strong gas cooking, my experience from my early search was Rinnai, but other (especially seller) will say the fotile is equally good. Hood didn't do much research.

lebensstil been discuss before, you can read it here. https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/1652583/all

hi guys, let say if i bought the ventilation only type of hood but suddenly i didn't want to hack my wall, can i just use it as recycle type? maybe put some charcoal filter?

If not design to have air escape on your hood, it will first make lots of noise, than no suction, and later motor damage.

He do give good price, few friends compare with the famous seller here before. Make your own comparison. No vendor have best price for everything they carry, do make your comparison of what you want to get and not brain wash by only what their best price items.

The old timer vendor here sell at very reasonable price.

Yup, want to install hood but there is AC compressor on the same place as hood ducting. No space to move to the right/left.
*
If you cook and Ac not switch on will not be that bad because your compressor fan not sucking the air. If your hood good in traping oil is OK, if not you may have oil drip to the compressor, and condensor efficiency will drop if oil are trap there.

It Reduce the oil and smell when doing heavy cooking. Can't stop. If I fry stuff I will close off my wet kitchen. If anyone tell you can stop smell and oil they pulling your leg.
