Cooker Hood Buyers Guide

 

 

cooker hoods.jpgCooker Hood Type

There is a great selection of range cooker hood types available to choose from. Chimney hoods are usually fitted against a flat wall and extend down from the ceiling, these eye catching hoods are high performance and stylish but do require space. Integrated hoods are fitted behind a cupboard door and are most inconspicuous. Canopy hoods are usually completely concealed and are discreet and functional rather then stylish.

Toledo hood.jpg

Extraction

Although the look of your range cooker hood is important it is equally as important to think about how your cooker hood will work. Extraction hoods will filter air then send it outside,

they offer an effective way to clear your kitchen of steam, smoke and food smells. Extraction hoods are mounted on an external wall or somewhere where the ventilation hose can be connected to the outside.

SS-Chimney-Hood.jpgRecirculation

Recirculation hoods are the perfect alternative if you can’t vent your cooker hood externally. All recirculation hoods feature a grease filter made from either metal, paper or cloth then a charcoal filter removes unwanted odours and smoke, before releasing the clean air back into your kitchen. The benefit of choosing this method, is that it can be installed anywhere in your kitchen and they are usually cheaper than extraction hoods.Flat-Hood-SS.jpgExtraction Rate

The extraction rate determines how quickly a cooker hood can remove hot air and cooking smells from the kitchen. We recommended that your range cooker hood should be able to change the air in your kitchen12 times per hour. The larger the kitchen the higher the extraction rate you’ll need.

Extra Features

Every cooker hood comes with either one or two lights these are used to illuminate the surface as you prepare your food or to keep an eye on hot pans. Range cooker hoods can be quite loud, so look out for the best noise levels. The lower the decibels (dB) the less intrusive it will be. Most cooker hood models have a few settings, giving you different speeds of extraction. Lower speeds will clear up steam when you’re boiling vegetables or pasta whilst the highest setting will clear the air of grease.

How to Replace Your Stove Glass

Replace the glass on your Stove

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 15.32.10

If your wood burning stove glass has cracked this guide give as step by step on how to replace it. During every use your stove glass is coping with the extreme temperatures if you spot any breaks, holes or cracks, then the glass will be weakened and it is best to replace it as soon as possible rather than risk the whole piece shattering.

STEP 1: CLEANING

The inside of your stove door is likely to be covered in ash, dirt and other by products of solid fuels so it is worth brushing down the door before you go any further.

STEP 2: GLASS CLIPS

If possible try to remove the door of your stove to replace the glass and lay it down flat. This is often as simple as lifting it off its hinges however check your stove manual to see if this is possible before proceeding. Glass is usually held into the door with metal catches or clips but again this can vary between different stoves. Remove the catches by undoing the screws or bolts, use WD40 if you encounter resistance from the catches as they may have become stiff from tar deposits from the fuel you are using. Please note as you loosen the catches the glass may become free at any time.

STEP 3: RELEASING THE GLASS

Once you have moved the glass clips to the side or unscrewed them completely slowly remove the glass from the door, take particular care with the cracked section of glass.

STEP 4: CHECK THE ROPE SEALS

The seal between the glass and the door is usually formed by fire rope or a flat seal. This may have become broken or frayed over time. This might be a good time for you to check the rope seal around the edge of your stove door too. You can find replacement fire rope in our accessories section.

STEP 5: NEW GLASS

Fit the new glass by placing it on top of the glass seal, put the glass catches back into place and secure them by tightening the screws or bolts. Be extra careful not to over-tighten the screws as this could break your new glass. We supply replacement glass for all the stoves we sell and can even make special made sizes as long as there are no curves or cut outs in the glass you require.

How to Light a Fire…

How to Light a Fire

Screen Shot 2015-02-24 at 15.28.14

There is no single right way to light a wood burning stove, if you have a method that works then by all means stick with it. Remember all stoves and chimney’s have their own “personality” so you may wish to tweak this guide to get the best out of your product.

STEP 1: AIR VENTS AND LOGS

Ensure that all air vents on the stove are open. Put the logs on the base of the stove, it is important that the wood is cleft and dry. The logs you use may be as thick as a fist or slightly thicker.

STEP 2: KINDLING

Add a layer of small logs about 4cm then two layers or so of kindling (as pictured above). Remember it is important to allow a 1cm gap between the pieces of wood for air to circulate.

STEP 3: FIRE LIGHTERS

Place a few firelighters or pieces of newspaper on top or in-between the kindling. Be aware paper produces unnecessary amounts of ashes and contributes to more soot.

STEP 4: LIGHTING

The final step is easy, light the fire lighters and close the door. Be aware some chimneys create a better draught than others, if the draught is insufficient it might be a good idea to open the door to your stove slightly until the fuel is properly burning.

CLOSING COMMENTS

As the wood gradually catches fire the amount of smoke gases emitting from the wood will also increase. Many of the stoves we supply are clean burning so the combustion chamber is designed to burn flue gases before they enter the flue pipe, this reduces polluting emissions. When refuelling your stove a good tip is to keep the door ajar for a few seconds before you open it completely. This way the draught in the chimney will ensure the flue gases are removed and you avoid smoke flowing into your room.
