Suggestions for Good chimney and hob for Indian cooking
i am thinking of renovating my kitchen.
If you want to go for ductless, go for Kutchina straight-line auto-clean chimney. Various models to suit gas stove size as well as suction capacity. Very easy to clean with a press of a button. Check their website to find suitable model.
@ r narasimhan, Hi, I also do not want to use chimney in my kitchen, but what are the alternatives or how to release smokes from the cooking in open kitchen?
With due respect to you and your sisters unfortunate experiences with chimney - the suggestions we have given above are purely based on practical experiences and so called 'theoretical' learnings. We stand by each advice we have made.
For your other uncalled for comments, everyone has an opinion and a language they choose to speak. This fantastic forum is to help out people in a dilemma and not a mud slinging fest. Luckily, we are not internet warriors so we won't be able to entertain and reciprocate your act. All the best.
DocPam,For your query wrt to hob next to window, please check the wind flow in your home. Looking at the current height of your base cabinet and plus the granite countertop - your hob will likely come almost the same height as the window.
You may have to cover it partially to avoid flames coming inwards, towards the chef, with the wind. The cooking fumes may also come inwards depending on the wind-flow.If you want to retain a small sink for vegetable washing etc, then decide upon its new placement and get the required plumbing changes done.The cutlery drawer should be near to the chef, which in the current plan is near the window so it will have this benefit if you finally plan to use that area for cooking.Thanks,NitinCORNERSTONE DESIGNSBangalore.
Hi, You can check the video of kitchen tour of 'the home minister' vedio blog of Manishaji in YOUTUBE. She has a superb kitchen in a realy tiny space, i think around 10 by 6 feet. She does not have any chimney in her kitchen (shown as in her video) and has piped gas link with her normal gas stove. Her kitchen is very clean and neat. Her gas stove is also placed in nearby window. You can directly asked her about it as she is a food blogger and regularly use her kitchen
@rashmisarma Saw the video, and the kitchen is neat. Proves that the Chimney is NOT required to have a neat kitchen. Like you rightly said she is someone who seems to have a YouTube Channel for cooking. So with the kind of dishes that she makes using a "GAS" connection there is neither grease in the kitchen nor any worry of fire catching up with the wind 'blowing'.
With chimney you would also require microwave oven.. Try bakingreview it is one stop solution of all your requirements.
