Grease filter

The sponge grease filter should be washed in hot soapy water once a month (soak for 1-2 hours, do not wring,
leave to dry and then remount. If necessary, repeat the process. Replace with a new filter every 5-6 washes).
The grease filter paper should be replaced at least once a month.
Grease filter paper with saturation indicator should be replaced at least every two months or whenever the
colour becomes visible through the holes of the grille.
The paper filter is coloured on one side. This colour should not be visible through the grille holes when the filter
is installed.
Metal grease filters should be washed once a month either by hand or in a dishwasher at a low temperature and
in a short cycle. Leave filter to dry before remounting it. Washing in a dishwasher can cause grease filters to turn
white, but this in no way affects efficiency.
Whenever cleaning or replacing the grease filters, clean all other exposed parts of the hood.
