Some filters need to be replaced, others can be washed and re-used. Grease filters capture grease and food particles and should be cleaned or replaced every 15 - 100 hours depending on the type. For recirculation hoods, active carbon filters remove odours and should be cleaned or replaced approximately every 4 months.
Reusable filters – Washable charcoal, metal mesh and stainless steel filters can be washed by hand or put in the dishwasher on a 65°C intensive programme. Easy. Do this every 2-3 months up to 5-6 times.
Replaceable filters – Disposable charcoal and paper filters should be replaced approximately every 4 months.
