Midea T-Shape Rangehoods
What to Look for in a Rangehood
Your rangehood should be at least as wide as your stovetop. The bigger the rangehood, the more effective it will be at removing odours and cooking vapours. If you are just a casual cook with only one or two pots and pans on the stove at one time, a smaller rangehood will be perfect your needs. However, if you’re more likely to turn up the heat and have lots of stuff cooking at once, you might want to consider a larger model.
T-shaped rangehoods in NZ can have different types of filters, such as aluminium mesh filters and activated charcoal filters. Aluminium filters trap grease before the air is removed from the room and can then be washed in your dishwasher every few months to keep it working at its best. Charcoal filters are made from carbon that traps contaminants and neutralises odour. Charcoal filters are disposable; you must replace them every few months.
For some people, noise levels are a significant factor when choosing a rangehood. T-shaped rangehoods with more power tend to be noisier, but if you have an open-plan kitchen and dining area, you may not want to introduce too much noise to the area.
