The filters:

Present in this model are the metal grease filter and charcoal filter. Grease is a resultant of cooking and it is a pain to clean the surfaces around the hob. These filters suck the grease and it keeps the surfaces around non sticky and clean. The filters will have to be cleaned regularly otherwise there are chances for fire. The metal grease filter can be removed once a month and washed with non-abrasive detergent or in a dishwasher on low temperature cycle. This makes maintenance an easy job. The carbon filters present in this hood are not washable and it is required to be replaced every 6 months to obtain the best performance.

No return valve:

This is a special and a very important feature which stops the cold air and the grease vapour from travelling down through the extractor from outside. This feature enhances the performance of the hood.
