CHOOSING THE RIGHT HOOD
as a general guide, cooker hood is expected to replace the air in kitchen by 10 times per hour. Multiplying kitchen area by 10 derives the ideal extraction rate (m3/hr)
MIN. EXTRACTION RATE = (W X D X H) X 10
 
CHOOSING THE RIGHT HOOD SIZE
Cooker Hood should be at least equal, or greater than the width of the Hob.
 
This is to ensure that smoke, steam and grease do not escape from the sides of the Hob, and achieve greater efficiency in suction power.
30~60cm Hob : Install min. 60cm Cooker Hood
70~90cm Hob : Install min. 90cm Cooker Hood
 
EF COOKER HOOD FEATURES
 
EXTRACTION MODE
Smoke and steam are passed through grease filters in the hood then discharged outside the home via ducted pipes. Grease and odours are effectively removed. Installation tends to be more complicated as ducting is required, thus suitable for larger homes with more spacious kitchens.

RECIRCULATION MODE
Smoke and steam are passed through grease and charcoal filters in the hood then clean air is returned back into the kitchen. The filters effectively remove grease particles and odours from the air. Ducting is not required, thus suitable for installation in apartments and HDB units.  
 
SENSOR TOUCH CONTROL
Enjoy greater convenience at your fingertips. Elegant Sensor Touch Control is user friendly and easy to select, allowing you to quickly switch between modes and settings. Doubling as a centerpiece, it beautifies your kitchen by seamlessly integrating into your home. Enjoy fuss free cleaning within a swift wipe across the panel.
 
TRIPLE MOTORS
Form meets functionality with EF triple-motors cooker hoods that provide exceptional airflow rate of up to 825m3/hr. Offering high performance in removing smoke and grease from your kitchen, EF enables a comfortable cooking experience with optimal kitchen air quality for you and your family.
 
DELAY STOP
It is recommended to let the cooker hood run for an additional 15mins after cooking to thoroughly remove any residual heat and grease in the air. Simply select the Delay Stop function and let the cooker hood automatically cut off after the preset duration. Enjoy peace of mind without worrying about lingering smoke and smell at home!
 
LED LIGHTS
Save more, buy less. LED lights last up to 50 times longer than halogen bulbs, while offering up to 12 times better energy efficiency, thus allowing greater utility savings and reducing frequency of replacements. Emitting a mere 10% of their energy in heat, LED lights remain cool to the touch and reduce risks of accidental scalding.
