Cooker hood filters come in two basic formats, the grease filter which filters out grease and stops cooking grease that is carried in steam etc. from clogging up the motor and charcoal or carbon filter that removes odour from the cooking process. All hoods require a grease filter and this must be fitted. These will be in the form of a foam gease filter, a paper typw grease filter or a metal mesh type grease filter. Any hood not vented to the outside should have a carbon filter fitted which helps to remove odours and, importantly, to protect teh cooker hood motor from damage. It is important to make sure that your grease filter is replaced regularly to prevent grease entering the hood and causing damage or, simply not allowing air to be drawn into the cooker or extractor hood allowing it to simply spill back into the kitchen. Or, if you have a cooker hood with a metal mesh type filter that it is cleaned regularly to prevent it becoming blocked or damaged. Grease filters should be replaced every one to six months depending on the level of use and type of cooking you do. Carbon or charcoal filters should be replaced every three to six months for optimal performance.
How often that you need to replace or clean the filters, regardless of what the manufacturers often will tell you, is down to what type and how much cooking that you do. The more you cook, the more regularly you should replace or clean the filters.
