Review of top Elica kitchen chimney in India

Before presenting our in-depth review of the best Elica kitchen chimney in India, let us briefly look at the different Elica kitchen chimneys’ different types. Elica India makes the following types of kitchen chimneys based on the mount.

  • Hanging mounted – As the name implies, handing mounted chimneys hang from the ceiling directly over your stove. These have a beautiful design and look more like chandeliers than kitchen chimneys.
  • Wall-mounted – The wall-mounted kitchen chimneys are the most popular in India. These attach to your kitchen wall, above your stove.
  • EDS (Elica deep silence) – EDS technology is a patented technology by Elica to drastically reduce the suction noise when the chimney is in use.
  • Hob extractor (Aspiration) – The hob extractor fits into the kitchen cabinet and the induction hobs. In other words, the Elica Nikola Tesla is an induction stove with a chimney built into it. 99% of the Indian homes will not need this system.
  • Built-in – Built-in kitchen chimneys are built-in the ceiling or into the air vents, as the name implies.
  • Ceiling – The ceiling-mounted Elica kitchen chimney mounts directly into your roof. They are different from the hanging-mounted.

Elica TBFL HAC TOUCH 60/90 MS NERO – Fourbloggers.com Editor’s choice

Editor’s
Choice

The Elica TBFL HAC TOUCH Nero with motion sensor control is the best selling wall-mounted Elica kitchen chimney in India. It has an elegant and refined design that will go well with any interior design. This kitchen hood also comes with innovative techs such as touch controls and motion sensors that you will love.

The Elica TBFL HAC TOUCH Nero is not without flaws. At full suction capacity (speed level 3), the noise levels are too high. Also, the auto-clean does not clean 100%.

Overall, this Elica kitchen chimney is an excellent choice that offers features and an excellent price point.

An in-depth look at the features of Elica TBFL HAC TOUCH 60/90 MS Nero

  • Heat auto clean technology – Over time, kitchen chimneys get smeared with oil from cooking. Cleaning grease particles from a chimney is messy. The Elica’s heat auto clean tech uses a heating element to melt the sticky oil inside the vent. This oil then flows into the oil collector that can drain.
  • Motion sensor control – We liked the motion sensor-based control. Waving your hand will turn on the suction, while continuous waving adjusts the fan speed. You no longer have to wash your hands to operate your chimney, just wave to get it going.
  • Superb suction capacity – At full speed, this hood can pull up to 1200 m3/hr. Simply put, this kitchen chimney does its job. This chimney has a high-quality metal blower system to remove smoke and odor efficiently out of the kitchen.
  • Filterless technology – The motor is carefully sealed within the chimney, which protects it from grease, oil, and odor. The filterless tech also ensures the smooth functioning of the motor by sealing it completely.
  • Energy-efficient – This chimney uses powerful and energy-efficient LED lamps.
  • Installation kit – Remember, Elica charges for installation. The installation kit comes with the following.
    • Aluminium Duct Pipe (9-10 ft)
    • Cowl Cover (1 Unit)
    • Clamp (2 Units)
    • Aluminum Tape (1 Unit)

For

  • Elegant design
  • Touch control panel – no more messy buttons
  • Energy-efficient LED lamps
  • Motion sensor control when you have your handsful
  • Heat auto clean technology
  • Excellent balance between features and price
  • Available in 60 cm and 90 cm

Against

  • Very noisy at speed level 3
  • Heat auto clean does not remove all the oil
  • The motion sensor does not work when you are more than one feet away from the chimney
  • You need to pay separately for the installation and ducting kit

  • Baffle filters – This Elica model comes with two easy to clean baffle filters.

  • Motion sensor – Using the motion sensor, you can turn on and speed up the chimney without touching it. Merely wave your hand to turn on the motor.
  • Suction capacity – This chimney has the highest suction capacity of all the Elica kitchen chimneys. If you install yours properly, this chimney can handle anything that you can throw at it.
  • LED Lamps – The LED lamps increase visibility and also adds a touch of elegance to the chimney.

For

  • Heat auto-clean tech
  • Easy to clean baffle filter
  • Max airflow at 1425 m3/hr, one of the highest suction capacity in the market
  • Motion sensor controls
  • Free installation kit
  • LED lights and touch control panel

Against

  • High installation cost
  • A bit noisy at high speeds

Bottom Line

Bottomline inforgraphicsThe Elica TBF HAC 60/90 MS NERO kitchen chimney comes loaded with features and innovative technology. This chimney is available in two sizes, 60 cm, and 90 cm. It also has motion sensors for touch-free operation, exceptional suction capacity (1425 m3/hr), heat auto-clean, two baffle filters, and a touch control panel.

The downside is hidden installation charges. Several people complain about pathetic installation support. For a premium product, consumers need better support.

Overall, this chimney is an excellent product backed by a pathetic support framework. If you get past the initial hassle of installation, this is an excellent choice.

Review of Elica Glace EDS HE LTW 60/90 NERO TC4V LED

Elica Glace EDS HE LTW 60/90 NERO TC4V LED

  • Deep silence mechanism
  • 3D baffle filter
  • Tornadic suction
  • LED lamps
  • Touch controls
  • Features 80% 80%
  • Design 80% 80%
  • Price 70% 70%

An in-depth look at the features of Elica Glace EDS HE LTW 60/90 NERO T4V LED

  • Deep silence – Don’t be misled by Elica’s marketing. There are no “silent” kitchen chimneys. You will still hear the suction when you increase your speed level to two or three. However, compared with other hoods that don’t have the EDS3 tech, the Glace EDS HE is quiet.
  • 3D filter – This cooker hood has a round filter mesh designed for easy cleaning. Without the auto-clean technology, the round baffle filters need manual cleaning.
  • Tornadic Suction – This Elica chimney comes with a powerful suction motor with a maximum airflow capacity of 1010 m³/hr. This motor is not only powerful but is relatively quiet and efficient.
  • Touch controls – We like the modern touch controls instead of switches. The touch control panel is easy to clean and operate.
  • LED Lamps – This chimney comes with two powerful LED lamps. Even if you are not using the chimney, simply turn on the LED lights for added visibility.

For

  • EDS3 technology to keep the noise levels down
  • Deep silence mechanism
  • Touch controls for smudge-free operation
  • Tornadic suction of 1010 m3/hr
  • 3D filter that covers a wide area and ensures a maximum of 360 degrees suction

Against

  • Does not have heat auto-clean function
  • Installation and material cost is high
  • Don’t expect complete silence. EDS3 tech reduces noise levels by 30%
  • Does not have motion sensor controls
  • Expensive

Bottom Line

Bottomline inforgraphicsThe Elica Glace EDS HE LTW 60/90 NERO T4V LED kitchen chimney is another beautifully crafted kitchen chimney from Elica. It combines excellent looks and durability with deep silence operations.

If you are someone who finds cooking relaxing, choose this chimney. EDS3 technology works! We found this chimney to be one of the quietest in the market. Remember, EDS3 does not mean zero noise. You will still hear the suction. The biggest downside was the lack of an auto-clean feature. While the 3D filter is easy to clean, the auto-clean function is sorely missed.

Overall, the Glace EDS HE LTW NERO T4V LED is an excellent choice for someone looking for a quiet chimney. Remember, if you stretch your budget a little more, you can get an Elica with EDS and auto-clean.

  • Filterless tech
  • Touch controls
  • Five-year warranty
  • Features 10% 10%
  • Design 80% 80%
  • Price 50% 50%

An in-depth look at the features of the Elica EFL S 901/601 HAC kitchen chimney

  • Heat auto-clean tech – Having an auto-clean chimney can save you tons of time and effort. Indian cooking uses a lot of oil. Over time the grease from your cooking will deposit over the vent and form grease particles. This chimney has an internal heating element that heats up and melts this sticky oil. The oil collector collects this oil for disposal. Despite the auto-clean, you still need to clean manually.
  • Touch controls – The great thing about touch controls is that they are easy to clean. Oil and grease can clog switches and make the chimney operations messy.
  • LED Lamps – Elica has excellent lighting options in all its chimneys. LED lamps increase visibility while cooking and save electricity.
  • Filterless tech – When you are on the lookout for an Elica kitchen chimney, look for one that needs the least cleaning. Elica’s filterless tech seals the motor guarding it against oil and grease.
  • Maximum suction – The Elica EFL-S901 HAC VMS chimney has a powerful suction capacity of 1100 cubic meters per hour. Since this model does not have EDS3 tech, it isn’t quiet while running at speed levels two and three.

For

  • Elegant design with curved black glass finish
  • Available in two sizes 60 cm and 90 cm
  • Motion sensor controls for touch-free operations
  • Heat auto-clean technology
  • Touch control panel

Against

  • Noisey at speed two and three
  • Installation charges
  • While auto-clean does its job. You will still need a technician once or twice each year to clean

Bottom Line

Bottomline inforgraphicsThe Elica EFL S 901/601 HAC VMS incorporates modern features with a unique, elegant design. We love this modern chimney for its features, looks, and elegance. This Elica kitchen chimney has all that you need in an excellent package.

This kitchen hood is not without its limitations. If you are cooking for your family and need to run the chimney at top speed, the noise levels are high.

Overall, Elica EFL S 901/601 HAC VMS does not disappoint. It is a nice buy if you are looking for an elegant chimney to match your sleek kitchen.
