What can you do to maintain your rangehood's longevity?
“Is it easy to clean the rangehood filters?” “How often do I need to clean them?”
Cleaning your filters have many benefits including effective grease and smoke removal, improved power efficiency, easier cleaning in the long-run and most importantly, safety. Your Schweigen filters are very easy to clean and can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
Washing filters by hand:
Immerse the filter in hot water and a suitable detergent; when clean, rinse with plenty of hot water. Dry the filters with a cloth after washing, avoid leaving them to dry out by themselves.
Washing filters in the dishwasher:
Put the filter in the dishwasher and select a short program at low-moderate temperature (for stainless steel baffles you can use a higher temperature setting for a more thorough clean).
Please note: Stainless steel filters lose shine after a few cleaning processes - this is normal. Filters should be cleaned every 3-6 weeks or after 40 hours of use. For induction cooktops, please aim to clean them at least every 10 days, depending on use.
