How To Clean Your Cooker Hood and Filter
The best way to clean your cooker hood and filter will all depend on the kind of cooker you have. In the latest blog post from Cooker Solutions, we discuss ways to clean your cooker hood and filter, ensuring that it sparkles all year round.
Whatever appliance you have, you must ensure that it is fully switched off and cold before you begin cleaning or removing components.
If you have a flat extractor, it will have a paper filter that you can remove and replace. Paper filters are often sold in general supermarkets and may be cut to size. Carbon filters will also need replacing after a certain time, rather than cleaning.
Cleaning a Metal Cooker Hood Filter
Begin by removing the metal filter from the cooker hood and placing it to soak in hot water with a cleaning agent that can cut through grease – many washing up liquids are good for this. If you have a stainless steel filter, be sure to use products that are suitable for this type of metal so as not to dull its shine or cause marks.
For best results when cleaning your cooker hood, use a smooth sponge to gently rub away built up grease and dirt. A wire or particularly rough sponge may leave scratch marks on the surface. To get into the crevices of your cooker hood, try using an old, soft-bristled toothbrush to clean out dirt that has built up in the corners of the hood.
