About Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60
Elica is a reputed brand in gas hobs and chimneys. In India, Elica has a manufacturing and assembling plant in Pune, Maharashtra. Technology is imported from Italy. Thus, the company can boast of finest technological know-how and good knowledge about Indian cooking conditions. This makes Elica the top selling brand in India.
Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60 is a power-packed offering from Elica. It is a low maintenance, effective product and at the same time, it will enhance the look of your modular kitchen – choose black or steel grey color matching with your kitchen. This powerful kitchen chimney comes in 60 cm length which is close to 24 inches. Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60 is a wall mount chimney and needs to be connected to the outlet through a duct pipe.
Features of Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60
1200 meter cube per hour suction capacity
1200 meter cube per hour is quite sufficient for a mid to large sized Indian kitchen. Logic behind this is that this chimney would be able to clean 120 meter cube space 10 times in an hour at maximum speed. Standard kitchen roofs are usually maintained at 3.5 meters (about 11 feet). Length and breadth of the kitchen can be more than 5.5 meters (about 18 feet). Hence 1200 suction capacity is more than enough if your kitchen falls under these dimensions. Remember – effectiveness of your chimney is a function of its suction capacity.
Elica OSB HAC comes with stainless steel baffle filters which are easy to clean and less noisy compared to cassette filters. Baffle ensures that oil droplets get condensed on the steel and smoke, vapour etc will escape through the exhaust pipe.
Heat Auto-clean Feature
When you open the baffle filters, you will find a small oil collection cup installed inside. This oil collector is provided to collect all condensed oil from baffle strips as and when the auto clean button is turned on. An internal heater helps in melting of condensed oil. Furthermore, the internal structure of baffles is designed in a manner so as to deposit all the oily impurities in the oil collector. You just have to clean baffles once in a while (say about 15-25 days depending on your type of cooking and usage). Cleaning baffles is easy – just immerse them in warm detergent water or pour some vinegar in warm water. Use an old tooth-brush for best results.
Elica auto clean chimney comes with touch controls to relieve you of the unnecessary hassle of washing or cleaning your engaged hands. Even if you are kneading dough or preparing a fried dish, it is always easy to switch on thanks to a robust touch panel.
Furthermore, this chimney has 3 Watt LED lamps for better counter top illumination. Also, the chimney is energy efficient as the motor takes only 180 Watt load.
Installation of Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60
A 6 feet long plastic pipe is provided with this Elica kitchen chimney. However I would suggest to buy 6 inch diameter Aluminium or PVC pipe required for installation beforehand. Usually 10 feet long 6 inch flexible Aluminum pipe costs around 800 bucks at the hardware store together with round grill and fixtures. You can also purchase it online. Take a measurement of your chimney to outlet length before buying the pipe.
Usually, Elica team charges 1000 rupees for installation. If they provide the pipe, they might charge you anything between 2500 to 3500.
Warranty and Customer Care of Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60
Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60 comes with 1 year warranty on the entire product including motor etc. Warranty covers all sorts of manufacturing defects.
You will need to call Elica Toll free number at 1800-233-0007 or e-mail to email@example.com for installation and service / warranty claims. Usually Elica customer care is rated low by customers. Also, many dealers have stopped stocking Elica products because of complaints from kitchen chimney buyers.
Retail Price of Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60
The retail price of this kitchen chimney is about Rs. 14,000 – 15,000 in Delhi NCR stores. Therefore, it is much better to buy this chimney online.
