Looking for Kitchen Hood, Hob and Oven deal
Anybody has recommendation for kitchen hood, hob and oven?
It will be heavily used since I cook everyday and I have internal kitchen. SO the last thing i want is a noisy kitchen hood! And a hob that has at least 3 burners.
So far I have seen a fagor deal for rm2899 for all three but i dont know whether it would be practical. I've also been to a place which carries the brand Aerogaz from Singapore... But am very sceptical with the brand.
ANy experience, knowledge and advice are welcomed!!
fagor is a good brand for hob, hood and oven.
another brand would be faber. pm me for faber direct contact number.
WheRe aRt ThOu?!
Fagor hoods are only 880 suction power, Pacific has 1000 to 1200 suction power. quite quiet and best of all, it has auto cleaning function.
Go to Jusco Home Centre, there are a few good deals on Pacific hoods.
anyone interested in Fujioh brand?
how about tellini, teka, fujihome, ariston? so many brands around...i was told that many of the hoods and hobs are now made in China...
If you guys are shopping around for hobs, hood and oven, I strongly discourage you guys from purchasing from Paramax, Kota Damansara.
I had the misfortune of ordering my hood and oven from them, and have to go through the following:
1) Uncommited delivery date, had to chase for my delivery by calling them daily
2) To rub salt onto the wound, on day of the delivery, the delivery guy was 3 hours late. They had no absolute idea then I had to rush all the way from my KL office to my home in Putra Heights to receive the goods, in the end I had to take EL for this.
3) Today was supposed to be my hood installation, to my horror, after arranging specially for the kitchen cabinet guys to come today, found the screws/bracket package in the box may have been preopened, and were missing some brackets. I now have a suspicion the unit may not be new as all the protective stickers were already peeled. W/o the bracket, I cannot install my hood today, and have to wait for replacement parts. Calling Paramax seems to fall on deaf ear, I got fed up and called Fagor directly instead. When I mentioned to Paramax/Fagor who's going to pay for the installation trip today, they say they can't do anything. I definitely will not pay for 2nd trip of installation.
You have be forewarned to shop carefully after my bad experience with Paramax.

My opinion is that by the end of the day, you still have to clean the hood. So for my new kitchen I have opted out, save money too!! A wall fan stratigically placed will work magic to the smoke!!
sorry to disappont Good Guy, but the wall fan just dispersed the air around your kitchen and maybe into our living/dining room and then the whole house.
The hood suck the smoke / oil fumes through a filter and by right this air should be blown outside of the house.
But if you want you can channel this air into your bathroom to make it smell like a kitchen

Actually it is not the same. The fan still cannot divert all the air out - some will be disperse around the kitchen, whereas the hood will suck the air on top of of the stove (and the smoke and oil etc), through the filter and the hood and pipe and then blow it out of the house.
You don;t have to believe me. talk to some of the guys selling the hood.

I just wish to share my opinion with all you good guys. At first I was thinking of installing Fujioh, but decided not to.
Been using Fujioh hood and hob for several years, we chose it coz we thought we were going to cook regularly when we bought it, but ended up with pretty infrequent cooking, heheheh.
It's been cleaned maybe a total of 3 times in 5 yrs, I think...err... wife not so rajin to clean it often but we don't do heavy oily cooking, ok.. so it's never always quite clean n there is an oil drip pan which has never ever been full.
But it looks ugly, yucks! If not becoz the other half wanted utility over aethetics, I'd hv opted for one of those pretty Italian jobs like I always do... anyway, it works well (no oily floors after cooking, some cheaper hoods tend to blow oil out again and deposit oil on the floor if u know what i mean) but blardy noisy n ugly is what i think of it.
Kinda pricey too, about 3K just for 3 burner glass top hob+heavy duty hood about 5 yrs back, and don't think that becoz it's name sounds Japanese that it is made in Japan, my guess is it is made in China or Taiwan coz there is no sticker anywhere that boldly stated 'Made in Japan' as all Japanese goods always so proudly displays.

That's a good summary
