How To Properly Use Your Range Hood

Part of proper range hood maintenance also includes proper range hood use. Not only does proper hood usage help keep the product in the best condition over the long term, but it also leads to the most efficient ventilation of fumes from the kitchen.

We recommend turning the range hood on to the lowest speed setting for at least 5 minutes before you start cooking. This will create an updraft that will guide the fumes directly into the stream of air the hood has created. Incrementally increase the fan speed level of your range hood as fumes and odors increase during the cooking process. Only use the range hood’s max speed setting if you’re using all burners at maximum BTU output. When finished, leave the hood on for 5 to 10 minutes, or use the delay-off timer to ensure all contaminants have been exhausted from the kitchen.
