WHY THE HOOD

THE HOOD IS ESSENTIAL TO BREATHE CLEAN AIR IN THE KITCHEN.

ITS MAIN FUNCTION IS TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF AIR, BY ELIMINATING BURNING FUMES, BAD COOKING ODOURS AND VAPOURS THAT ARE HARMFUL TO BOTH PEOPLE, FURNITURE AND WALLS.

THE HOOD IS A VALUABLE ALLY FOR YOUR WELLBEING.

THIS IS WHY, WHEN CHOOSING ONE, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT IT PROVIDES:

  • PERFORMANCE DI ASPIRAZIONE ADEGUATA ALLE TUE NECESSITA'

    SUCTION PERFORMANCE SUITABLE FOR YOUR NEEDS AND ENVIRONMENT, IN ORDER TO OBTAIN PROPER AIR FLOW AND LOWER ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION

  • FONTE DI LUCE EFFICACE

    EFFECTIVE LIGHT SOURCE TO FACILITATE FOOD PREPARATION

  • DESIGN IN LINEA CON I TUOI GUSTI

    DESIGN THAT SUITS YOUR TASTE AND NEEDS

  • BUONA USABILITA' E SILENZIOSITA'

    GOOD USABILITY AND LOW NOISE LEVEL

HOW TO CHOOSE IT

CHOOSE A HOOD THAT FACILITATES YOUR WORK IN THE KITCHEN, AFFORDS FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT AND SIMPLIFIES FOOD PREPARATION.

THE HOOD SHOULD ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT SUCTION POWER. CONSIDER THE SIZE OF YOUR KITCHEN AND YOUR COOKING HABITS: THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO OBTAIN THE RIGHT AIR FLOW AND LOWER ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION.

A SIMPLE CALCULATION ALLOWS UNDERSTANDING THE MOST SUITABLE CAPACITY FOR EVERY KITCHEN. JUT MULTIPLY THE VOLUME OF THE ROOM BY 10 TO OBTAIN THE IDEAL CAPACITY.

CHOOSE YOUR HOOD CAREFULLY AND BRING NEW AIR INTO YOUR KITCHEN.

HOW TO INSTALL IT

TO ENSURE THAT YOUR NEW COOKER HOOD OPERATES AS INTENDED, IT SHOULD BE INSTALLED BY SPECIALIST TECHNICIANS. ASSEMBLY AND MAINTENANCE WILL VARY DEPENDENT ON WHETHER YOU HAVE SELECTED A DUCT-OUT OR A RECIRCULATING HOOD.

MANY MODELS IN THE ELICA RANGE CAN OPERATE IN EITHER MODE. WHEN INSTALLING YOUR HOOD, BEAR IN MIND THESE SIMPLE BASIC RULES:

  • FOLLOW ALL THE STEPS SHOWN IN THE PRODUCT’S INSTRUCTION MANUAL;
  • CONNECT THE DUCT-OUT HOOD TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A DEDICATED PIPE: MINIMIZED LENGTH AND ABSENCE OF BENDS ENSURE BETTER PERFORMANCE;
  • COMPLY WITH THE MINIMUM DISTANCE FROM THE COOKTOP SPECIFIED IN THE MANUAL, IN ORDER TO AVOID DAMAGING WORKING PARTS AND ENSURING PEOPLE’S SAFETY;
  • MAKE SURE THAT THE OUTLET CHE IS CLOSE TO THE PRODUCT FOR CONNECTION.
  • IN THE EVENT OF DIFFICULTIES, SEEK ASSISTANCE FROM A RELIABLE SPECIALIZED TECHNICIAN.

TAKING CARE OF IT

TO ENSURE THE LONG LIFE AND CORRECT OPERATION OF YOUR HOOD IN BOTH DUCT-OUT AND RECIRCULATING VERSIONS, THE FIRST STEP IS TO KEEP THE FILTERING SYSTEM IN GOOD CONDITION.

THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF FILTERS:

  • THE GREASE FILTER PROTECTS YOUR HOOD BY TRAPPING PARTICLES OF GREASE. THE ALUMINUM OR STAINLESS STEEL GREASE FILTER REQUIRES PERIODIC CLEANING BY HAND WITH NEUTRAL DETERGENT OR IN THE DISHWASHER AT LOW TEMPERATURE (*). THE PAPER GREASE FILTER MUST BE REPLACED EVERY MONTH DEPENDING ON USE.
  • THE ACTIVE CHARCOAL FILTER INSTALLED ON RECIRCULATING HOODS, TRAPS ODOUR PARTICLES OF AIR. REMEMBER TO REPLACE IT EVERY 3-4 MONTHS. LONG LIFE FILTERS HAVE A LONGER LIFE: THEY MUST BE REPLACED EVERY TWO YEARS.

SIMPLE PRECAUTIONS WILL HELP YOU KEEP YOUR HOOD IN PERFECT CONDITION.

(*) always follow the instructions for washing the filter on the manual of the product

Accessories

Variety of components and additional parts for a better operation of your hood.

Ambient light

Lighting as a distinctive and defining feature to enhance the living environment.

Air outlet

Indicates the diameter of the hole in the wall through which the ducting is routed.

Back aspiration

Extraction of air from the rear of the hood, removing the need for an exposed flue or chimney for the duct-out version.

Consumption

The measurement, expressed in watts, of the total electrical consumption of the hood: motor and lighting.

Chef control

An intuitive hood control menu for adjusting suction power according to the type of cooking in progress.

Code of conduct

Elica adheres to the code of conduct promoted by CECED, the Association of Household Appliance Manufacturers, thus ensuring compliance of the capacity and noise level data published in the catalogue with the European standards.

Charcoal filter

Fitted in recirculating hoods, odour filters, consisting of active carbon, capture and retain the odours generated by cooking. They must be changed or regenerated regularly to ensure correct operation of the hood.

Capacity

The suction power or capacity (expressed in m³/h) is the volume of air extracted by a hood in one hour.

Duct-out

In this mode the hood expells cooking fumes and vapours to the outside by means of a duct. This is the most widely used type because it ensures high performance and low noise levels.

Digital display

A practical digital display that can be read in any lighting conditions.

Ducting

Ducts for exhausting air to the outside.

Elica Deep Silence

Eds3 (an Elica patent) is an extractor system that can reduce noise levels by 35%.

Evolution

An Elica patent. It is a compact system consisting of motor, filter, lighting and controls, with different aesthetic options.

Exclusive materials

Selected state-of-the-art materials that combine design with functionality.

External motor

A motor installed away from the hood on or at the end of the duct path, usually outside the kitchen, thus increasing capacity while reducing noise.

Ecolution
Flue, telescopic flue, flue extension kit

Supplied with the hood or as an accessory kit. Flues can be telescopic in order to tailor them to specific installation requirements.

Filter change indicator

An indicator that prompts the user to change or clean a spent or clogged filter, to ensure correct operation of the product.

Finish

Type of material and colour that characterizes the aesthetic parts of the hood.

Grease filter

Fitted in both duct-out and recirculating versions, grease filters retain the particles of grease generated by cooking.

Hepa filter

A special filter contained inside the air purifiers. It retains dust, pollen and bacteria: to ensure correct operation, the purifier should be changed every 8 to 10 months.

Head saver

An ergonomic extractor hood whose form and dimensions facilitate movement around the hob.

High performance

High performance in terms of maximum extraction efficiency.

Hood mounting heights
Intensitime

Motor power in intensive phase (maximum extraction efficiency) with 5-minute timer.

Long life filter

Innovative odour filters with high filtering efficiency (87%) and average service life of 3 years, which can be reconditioned in a few easy steps. They also reduce noise levels.

Lighting

All hoods are equipped with lights for the hob and certain models have additional ambient lighting. This heading indicates the type and number of bulbs and their power consumption, expressed in watts.

LED light

LED, a lighting system offering high efficiency, quality and energy savings.

Long life carbon filters
Magic Wand

A simple, elegant control control switch that both controls the fucntions of the hood and with different coloured indicator lights denotes the functions selected.

Noise level

Measurement of noise generated by the hood in operation, expressed in decibels (dB). The figures refer to minimum and maximum speed and, where applicable, timed intensive speed.

Perimeter aspiration

Suction concentrated around the perimeter of the extraction surface of the hood, which reduces consumption and noise level.

Pressure

The capacity of the extractor hood to push the extracted air through the ducts. The pressure is measured in pa (pascal. 1 pa = 1 n/m²).

Pure function

The hood is started for 5 minutes every 30 minutes. In low-noise mode, the function can also be activated when you are not cooking and it serves to ventilate the room.

Purifier

A multifunctional device that removes dust, pollen and bacteria from the air; its special design makes it a decorative object and a light source too. Not valid in UK yet.
