About Prestige AKH 600 SL
Prestige AKH 600 SL is made in China and marketed by TTK Limited in India. It is available in sleek design and black color with front toughened glass which gives it a trendy look and design. It is apt for modular kitchens having less than 70 meter cube volume. This is because this chimney has a suction power of only 760 meter cube per hour.
The Prestige AKH 600 SL kitchen chimney comes in 60 cm length which is close to 24 inches. It 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 Prestige AKH 600 SL
760 meter cube per hour suction capacity
Normally, more than 1000 cubic meter per hour is sufficient for Indian cooking. However, this chimney comes with 760 airflow rate which is useful in small kitchens only. 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.
Prestige AKH 600 SL comes with stainless steel honeycomb filters which are easy to clean. Noise level is only 62 decibels at maximum speed. Because of its auto clean feature, the filter don’t need to be cleaned every week. Therefore, this chimney saves a lot of time as we will see in the next section.
3rd Generation Auto-clean Feature
The Prestige AKH 600 SL is equipped with very handy heat auto clean feature. An oil collector is provided to collect all condensed oil from honeycomb strips and motor as and when the auto clean button is turned on. An internal heating coil is provided for melting of condensed oil deposited on the filters. Furthermore, the internal structure of honeycomb is designed in a manner so as to deposit all the oily impurities in the oil collector. You don’t have to clean filters just need servicing as and when required.
Prestige 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 200 Watt load .
Installation of Prestige AKH 600 SL
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, TTK team charges 500 – 1000 rupees for installation. If they provide the pipe, they might charge you anything between 2500 to 3500.
Warranty and Customer Care of Prestige AKH 600 SL
Prestige AKH 600 SL comes with Life Time Warranty which actually means 10 years on the entire product and motor. Warranty covers all sorts of manufacturing defects.
You will need to call TTK Toll free number corresponding to your city from this link to TTK Prestige Customer care numbers. Alternatively, you can e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and websitecustomer.support @prestigesmartkitchen.com for installation and service / warranty claims. Usually TTK customer care is rated low by customers. My experience with them has also not been very good.
Retail Price of Prestige AKH 600 SL
The retail price of this kitchen chimney is about Rs. 18,000 – 21,000 in Delhi NCR stores. Therefore, it is much better to buy this chimney online.
