About Elica SPT HAC 60
Elica SPT HAC 60 is a slim and stylish offering from Elica, one of the leaders in Kitchen chimneys. It is a low maintenance, effective product and at the same time, it will enhance the look of your modular kitchen – choose this product if steel grey color and square edges matches with your kitchen interiors. Otherwise, if you want the exact same features in curved glass model (both black and silver models available) you can go for Elica OSB HAC Touch BF 60. It has same specifications, just different look and design.
Back to the SPT HAC 60, this powerful kitchen chimney comes in 60 cm length which is close to 24 inches. Elica SPT HAC 60 is a wall mount chimney and needs to be connected to the outlet through a duct pipe. It can suffice the requirements of any 3 or 4 burner hob or gas stove easily.
Features of Elica SPT HAC 60
1200 meter cube per hour suction capacity
Normally, more than 1000 cubic meter per hour is sufficient for Indian cooking. However, this chimney comes with 1200 airflow rate which is wonderful. It will ensure that the chimney captures all the vapour and impurities generated by your cooking. Although the speeds are divided into three sections – low, medium and high speed. However, high speed setting is seldom required. Most of the time you will find yourself shuffling between low and medium flow.
Elica SPT HAC 60 comes with stainless steel baffle filters which are easy to clean and less noisy compared to cassette filters. Highest noise generated by this chimney is 60 decibel at maximum speed. Baffle filters ensure that oil droplets get condensed on the steel while smoke, vapour etc will escape through the exhaust pipe. These baffle filters need to be taken out and cleaned once in a while. Just immerse them in warm soap water and rub gently with a old tooth brush for best results. Because of its auto clean feature, baffles don’t need to be cleaned every week. Therefore, this chimney saves a lot of time as we will see in the next section.
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 on the baffles and motor parts. 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).
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 230 Watt load .
Installation of Elica SPT HAC 60
A 6 feet long plastic stretchable 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 SPT HAC 60
Elica SPT HAC 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 SPT HAC 60
The retail price of this kitchen chimney is about Rs. 14,500 – 15,500 in Delhi NCR stores. Therefore, it is much better to buy this chimney online.
