Features of Hindware Cleo 60
Hindware Cleo 60 wall mount kitchen chimney has length of 60 cm which is equal to 23.62 inches. This size is most suited for compact 60 cm 3 or 4 burner hobs or gas stoves. Ideally, the chimney should cover entire area on top of the hob or gas stove. This will ensure that all fumes and grime generated from cooking should get sucked in by the chimney. Also, for this purpose, space between hob or stove burner and chimney should be about 70 cm or 27.55 inch. This will ensure best efficiency as well as appropriate clearance for you to work. Also, please try to leave an inch space between chimney and woodwork so that the vibration from motor of the chimney should not get accentuated on the woodwork. All chimneys make noise, but by leaving space between woodwork and chimney, you can stop the noise from growing louder.
Hindware Cleo 60 has air flow equivalent to 1200 meter cube per hour. This is quite sufficient for Indian mid-sized kitchens and our type of cooking. Infact, the maximum speed is hardly ever required.
Finishing and Color
Hindware Cleo 60 mostly comes in Stainless steel silver finish. Therefore, it needs to match the overall ambiance of your kitchen. It also has a tranparent protective glass and black coated control panel. The control panel has feature touch switches which are quite smooth and easy to use. Glass brandishing also gives the chimney unit an elegant look. You can clean the glass once in a while with detergent water or Cleaning agent.
There are 2 LED lamps for illumination on your cooking area. Both are 1.5 Watt LED bulbs so that gives you around 3 Watts of illumination power which is more than sufficient.
Hindware Cleo 60 has a 2nd generation Water based auto-clean system. You will have to pour in detergent water in the vent above the filters every week. After that just switch on the auto clean mode and wait for 10 mins. Now you need to clean the oil collector once in a while. Thus, this auto clean chimney saves a lot of time. Every week you can just switch the auto clean on and once in a while clean the baffle filters by submerging them in hot water and detergent. Use an old toothbrush to scrub out impurities for best results.
Even when the unit is running at maximum speed, there is lower noise compared to other chimneys in same price point and priced more than this one. Noise by this kitchen chimney is lower than 58 db at full speed.

Hindware Cleo 60 comes with 1 year comprehensive warranty and 5 years warranty for the motor. This actually makes it a very good deal. For installation and service you will need to contact Hindware customer care at 1800-3010-2273.
