How to clean a kitchen chimney

When was the last time you cleaned your kitchen chimney? Hard to remember? If yes then it’s time to give a new look to your hood with some basic efforts.

Cleaning a kitchen chimney is a time-consuming task and most of us like to avoid it as much as possible. But on the other hand, we know that chimney cleaning is important for its smooth working too. The smoke produced from cooking makes the chimney filters greasy and sticky.

Normally hoods have mesh or baffle filters that are removable and can be cleaned easily. In case you are using Chimney on recirculation mode then you must be using charcoal filters, these cannot be cleaned and need to be replaced every 3-4 months based on usage. Coming to cleaning, it can be easily done by yourself with the help of some basic ingredients that can be found on your kitchen.

Ways to clean a kitchen chimney:

Using dishwashing liquid: Remove the filters from the hood and apply some dishwashing liquid to them. Take hot boiling water in a tub deep enough to immerse the filters. Leave them for around an hour or two. After a while clean the filters using a non-abrasive scrub. Let them dry and they are ready to be placed in the chimney.

Using baking soda & vinegar: You will need some kitchen supplies like baking soda, vinegar, and salt. Put the filters into a tub and pour boiling hot water. Add 2-3 tbsp of baking soda, salt and a cup of vinegar. Let them soak for a while and then clean properly.

Using caustic soda: Similar to the above method, take a tray or tub, sprinkle the caustic soda evenly over the filters and then pour boiling hot water. Take proper precaution as fumes will appear once you pour the water. Let it rest for an hour or two, rinse with clean water and they are ready to be fitted again once dried.

Cleaning the exteriors of the hood: You can use a damp soft cloth to clean the exterior body of the chimney. In case the grime is more you can use some cleaning detergent and then wipe clean with a clean cloth.

Note: Don’t forget to take necessary care and refer the product manual before trying any of the given ways.

However, if you still think that all the given processes are really hectic for you and if you are using a Glen Chimney then there is always help just call the Glen Helpline number 9266655555 or write an email at service@glenindia.com and call for a company trained person for servicing the chimney.

How To Select A Room Heater?

Room heaters are essential appliances for winters, especially in northern parts of India where warm clothes are not enough to beat the chilly winds. But, selecting the right heater for your home and office can be a confusing task due to the variety of options available in the market. We are trying here to help you choose the right type of room heater as per your requirement.

FEATURES TO LOOK OUT IN A ROOM HEATER:

Size & type: Room heaters come in a variety of sizes and types. So you must check the same and get one depending upon the need.

Heat settings: Multiple heat settings adds to the functionality of the appliance. Adjustable temperature control helps in setting the heat as desired.

Safety: Especially for the people having kids at home, safety is the most important aspect. Look for heaters having a thermostat, safety tip-over switch, wire mesh and other features for protection against unwanted hazards.

Portability: Room heaters are generally portable and can be carried from one room to another easily. So, opt for the one having wheels and handle for convenient operation.

Noise levels: The noise generated from the room heater cannot be ignored. But it also depends upon the type of heater being used. Like an OFR (Oil Filled Radiator) heater works silently and does not create noise but on the other hand, a fan heater/ convector has that air cutting noise.

Oxygen depletion: Most of the direct heating heaters lead to a reduction in oxygen and humidity levels. It is very critical factor to be considered when having newborn babies at home. OFR heaters do not cause such problems as they make the given surroundings warm by heating the oil running in the fins and indirectly heating the atmosphere.

There are some more aspects like room size, cord length, plug type, etc. that you may check while buying a room heater for your home. For better understanding, we have divided the type of room heaters in four categories.

Types of room heaters:

Oil-filled radiator heaters: These heaters do not cause oxygen depletion and warm up the surroundings evenly. OFR heaters do not become as hot as electric heaters and consume less power. Glen OFR heaters give sunlight feel and have overheating protection. They are available in 3 sizes having 9 (2400W), 11(2900W), 13 fins(2900W).

Fan heaters: These are compact heaters and can warm up the given surroundings in a short time. Equipped with ceramic coils, the fan heaters blow hot air and keeps the space hot for a longer duration. These heaters vary in size, shape, color, and features. Glen fan heaters come with two heat settings (1000W / 2000W) and adjustable thermostat temperature control.

Halogen heaters: They are designed to effectively heat any given surrounding at adjustable temperatures. Glen halogen heaters have 3 heat settings 3 heat setting (400W / 800W / 1200W ) & switches to control the swing.

Quartz heaters: These work on radiant technology and are suitable for heating small rooms. The heating filament is within a quartz tube that is heat resistant. Glen quartz heaters come with 2 heat settings (400W / 800W).

So, you may choose the best room heater depending upon your usage and requirement. In case if you want to know more about Glen room heaters then feel free to get in touch with us via social media platforms or dial our helpline 9266655555 to get assistance over the call.

When I Tried An Air Fryer For The First Time

Majority of people that cook at home always search for alternatives to make the cooking easier and healthier. Be it in terms of flavor, time or convenience. And this can be only done with the help of gadgets and appliances. In recent times, there are many kitchen gadgets that are hyped, but is it really worth buying them?  One such product which came to my notice recently was Air Fryers.

So I thought of buying an electric fryer as a healthy substitute to conventional deep frying. Although, I was really skeptical about getting one for me because we prefer deep-fried foods once a week. Putting all thoughts aside, I brought Glen Electric fryer 3046 home.

I went through the manual, read about the instructions in detail and then finally tried my hands on it. From making breakfasts to snacks and many more finger foods, this smart appliance became my best helping hand. It demands the least attention and performs all tasks from grilling to baking and frying in minimum time. The oil usage on foods went down without comprising the flavors.

What is a mini fryer actually?

A fryer is a compact appliance which uses convection to circulate hot air around the food to cook it. They vary in size, capacity,and prize. I tried using Glen fryer 3046 having 2.0 Liter capacity. It comes with a 30-minute timer, pre-set temperature control, vapor steam,and many more extraordinary features.

Does it make the food healthier?

You would have surely come across the claims that Air fryer is a healthy alternative to deep-frying. And the foods that get prepared in it are similar in taste and texture like conventional fryers. But is it so?

Fairly, my findings were combined. Where some foods got fried and baked perfectly in the fryer retained with flavors, others required more use of oil to achieve the desired results. Although it is true that you can fry/grill or bake several foods with less or no oil, the results varied.

To be straight on point, if you want to replace the traditional fryer and cut on oil consumption then Glen Mini Fryer is the perfect alternative. But in case if you think that you can replace it with other appliances (oven or microwave) then it is definitely not recommended.

What foods you can make in Mini Fryer?

I can confidently tell that this appliance is best for already frozen foods like fries, wedges or chicken wings but you will need to go through some recipe books with electric fryer specific cooking techniques in it.

  • Roasted chicken with tomatoes

I tried making roasted chicken with tomatoes in the electric fryer. The recipe was mentioned in the cookbook that came along. It was simple to follow and came out delicious.

  • Roasted Peanuts

To complement my ginger tea with a quick snack, I prepared a small batch of roasted peanuts coated with gram flour and spices. It required only a teaspoon of oil and came out really tasty.

  • Fried fish fillets

It can be cooked to perfection with minimum oil, making it a healthy item in your menu planning. Just clean the fish and drain excess water, rub the spice seasoning, coat in the egg mixture followed by bread crumbs. Preheat the electric fryer and put the fish fillets inside for 15 minutes. Enjoy the crispy fillets.

So, is buying a Mini fryer worth it?

The answer is yes! But it also depends upon the usage and number of members in your family. However, it is not a parameter that you must possess an electric fryer. If you really need one and like to try your hands on various cooking appliances then you must definitely become a proud owner of the electric fryer.

It can be easily stored, cleaned and used. You can cook small batches of foods of your choice with the required temperature and time. You will experience more texture and flavors when you will get used to it.

Advantages Of Induction Cooking

Induction cooking is not a new phenomenon and is now being used for over 15 years in India. We have been using Induction cooking as a substitute to the LPG when we run out of gas.

And yes, don’t neglect the factor of mobility. Except for built-in induction hobs, the portable induction cookers can be placed anywhere as per requirement.

Advantages of Induction Cooking

Instant Heat: Induction cooking works on magnetic fields where the heat is transferred directly to the pan and the food being cooked so its very energy efficient as there is no wastage of the heat as happens in the conventional cooking mediums. As there is no loss of heat the environment doesn’t get heated.

Consistent Results: the induction cooktops give you the freedom to control the temperature more precisely than gas or electric. Hence it helps in delivering consistent results without the risks of under or overcooking food.

No heat wastage: When using an induction cooker, only the surface where the vessel is placed gets the necessary amount of heat and not the whole surface. In fact, this type of cooking technique is more efficient than both electric and gas.

Safety: induction cooking is considered the safest way to cook food. With the features like auto cut off and child safety, Glen Induction cookers are often recommended by experts. As soon as the pan is taken off the induction surface, the unit will automatically get switched off.

Cleaning: Its very easy to clean the Induction cooktop, just wipe it clean after the cooking is over.

Now a days, a wide variety of options are available in different sizes and styles. But choosing the right one can seem to be quite a daunting task.

Decide the size of the gas stove:

The first step you need to keep in mind is to decide the size of the gas stove you need to purchase. There are a variety of models having 2, 3 and 4 burner cooktops. So first you need to measure your kitchen slab where you will place the gas stove and then decide on the size of the gas stove based on the available space.

Select the material, finish & color:

Check the type of burners:

With the advancement in technology, the gas stove burners have also started to come in various types. There are three options: Pressure Die-cast Alloy Burners, Brass Burners and Forged Brass Burners. You can find many variation of these in Glen cooktops.

Look for the Automatic ignition type:

To save from the hassles of using lighter or matchsticks, you can go with Auto ignition cooktop models. Here the choice is in Multi-spark battery operated Auto Ignition or Single spark Mechanical piezo ignited auto ignition. The multi spark is better as here many sparks come and till the time the flame doesn’t come on the burner you can keep the knob pressed.

ISI Mark:

In case you are going for a new LPG connection then the LPG dealer will insist on BIS approved Gas Stove so in this case you will have to be careful to select the models which are approved by BIS and have ISI logo on the product. Please note Auto Ignition cooktops and cooktops with Alloy burners are not BIS approved.

How to Clean a Kitchen Chimney?

When was the last time you cleaned your kitchen chimney? Hard to remember? If yes then it’s time to give a new look to your hood with some basic efforts.

Cleaning a kitchen chimney is a time-consuming task and most of us like to avoid it as much as possible. But on the other hand, we know that chimney cleaning is important for its smooth working too. The smoke produced from cooking makes the chimney filters greasy and sticky.

Normally hoods have mesh or baffle filters that are removable and can be cleaned easily. In case you are using Chimney on recirculation mode then you must be using charcoal filters, these cannot be cleaned and need to be replaced every 3-4 months based on usage. Coming to cleaning, it can be easily done by yourself with the help of some basic ingredients that can be found on your kitchen.

Ways to clean a kitchen chimney:

Using dishwashing liquid: Remove the filters from the hood and apply some dishwashing liquid to them. Take hot boiling water in a tub deep enough to immerse the filters. Leave them for around an hour or two. After a while clean the filters using a non-abrasive scrub. Let them dry and they are ready to be placed in the chimney.

Using baking soda & vinegar: You will need some kitchen supplies like baking soda, vinegar, and salt. Put the filters into a tub and pour boiling hot water. Add 2-3 tbsp of baking soda, salt and a cup of vinegar. Let them soak for a while and then clean properly.

Using caustic soda: Similar to the above method, take a tray or tub, sprinkle the caustic soda evenly over the filters and then pour boiling hot water. Take proper precaution as fumes will appear once you pour the water. Let it rest for an hour or two, rinse with clean water and they are ready to be fitted again once dried.

Cleaning the exteriors of the hood: You can use a damp soft cloth to clean the exterior body of the chimney. In case the grime is more you can use some cleaning detergent and then wipe clean with a clean cloth.

Note: Don’t forget to take necessary care and refer the product manual before trying any of the given ways.

Glen Mobile Experience Van Launched In Lucknow

Glen has taken a step ahead in reaching the customers with the launch of the first “Glen Mobile Experience Van”. It is a compact van, displaying 8 chimneys, 8 hobs and 16 cooktops in addition to some small appliances.

The Van will be parked early morning at Parks where morning walkers go, in the afternoon at busy shopping areas and in the evenings near the good eating joints. On weekends it will be parked at the upcoming housing societies where house owners visit to get the interior work done.

It was the brainchild of Bunmeet Singh and his passion to create something new and add a new dimension to his father’s business which saw the successful flagging of Glen Experience Van on 10th February 2019.

Bunmeet is a LLB Graduate from Amity University. He is the son of Mr. Narendra Pal Singh Grover, who has been a part of Glen family as a distributor since the year 2000. His father has been running the distribution business of Glen in Lucknow and then opened the first gallery in the year 2009 and the second was opened in 2011, third one in 2012 and 4th Gallery in 2018.

He felt that with Lucknow expanding he is still not in a position to cover the new and upcoming areas so is on the look out to open a couple of more galleries. So when he shared his this dream with his son, Bunmeet came up with an innovative idea. He left his job at a Delhi Law firm and started working on the innovative idea to reach the nook and corners of ever expanding Lucknow through the Glen Mobile Van. He worked relentlessly for 40 days and made this dream come true.

Glen salutes and recognize his efforts and wish him all the success in this first project of his.

Glen has always paid special emphasis on reaching the customers by going closer to the customers and this a small step towards that direction. Learning from this pilot project many more Vans will be created all over the country to reach to the customers and help them make their buying decisions.

Once the mixture will start heating, the steam will be formed leading to smell reduction.

    Method 2: Water & Lemon

    This is yet another best way to make your microwave odor-free. You will need a lemon and half a cup of water. Partly squeeze the juice of the lemon into the water. Thereafter, pour the mixture into the microwave-proof bowl along with the lemon slices. Turn on the appliance and set the timer for 3 minutes. Wait for the steam to do wonders.

    Method 3: Vinegar

    In this procedure, you will first need to turn off the Glen built in microwave. Take a clean sponge and dip it into a cup full of vinegar. Gently wipe off the interiors of the appliance and let it stay open for around an hour. If the smell stays intact, then repeat the method 1 after some time.

    The given methods will surely help you achieve the best results with minimum strain and expense. However, it is also mainly recommended to use a spray bottle filled with equal portions of water and vinegar for cleaning on weekly basis. And yes, don’t forget to wipe the microwave after every use with a damp cloth to reduce the risk of odors being spread to other foods.

Why You Must Use an Air Fryer

Most of the Indian cooking involves fried foods. Be it sweet or the savory dishes. Gone are the days when people used to run away from the deep-fried foods. As the technology changed and the air fryers came into the market, the people also shifted from deep oily cooking to healthy air frying. The conventional fried food is unhealthy and at the same time, poses serious health issues among the people.

Although there are many brands that manufacture air fryers but choosing the right one is quite a difficult task. If you are looking for one, then you must give Glen Rapid Fryer a serious look.

Here I am trying to list the various uses of air fryer and how it is better than the normal deep frying. This innovative appliance looks trendy and very safe as there is no risk of hot oil splashes. It is quite fast and hands free once you put the ingredients and set the timer you don’t need to stand there as in case of traditional frying.

The air frying is not only convenient but a healthy option also as most of the oils break above a particular temperature and then are considered not good for health, as here no oil or very little oil is used and that too by setting the temperature at 1600-1800 one can avoid in this case. Be it vegetarian or the non-veg ones, all kinds of delicacies can be prepared in this smart appliance.

An air fryer, cooks, bakes, grills, and fries your favorite food items by circulating hot air around the food. It makes the food healthier and that too without or less oil. It does not need any assistance now and then, once you put the food items to be fried in it. Another thing is that there will be no grease on your plate and easier to clean too. If you got a cookbook with your fryer then it’s great, but if not then, you can find innumerable recipes and tutorials to use the air fryer.

These are the reasons why you must use an air fryer:

Multipurpose – Air fryers are versatile cooking appliances. They can be used to cook, bake, grill or roast any foods in comparatively lesser time.

A Healthier alternative – An air fryer eliminates the need for oil because it uses rapid air technology for cooking. This means that the food you are making in it are less fatty and healthier.

Faster cooking: Whether it is samosa or French fries, the airfryer has the ability to cook the foods much faster than the average appliances in your kitchen.

Super easy clean up: Most of the air fryer baskets is non-stick grease proof. Glen Rapid Fryer also has a removable nonstick basket which can be cleaned conveniently after every cooking.

It does not matter if you have a Glen glass cooktop or of any other brand, you just simply have to find out some ingredients from your kitchen in order to get the desired glossy shine back on your old cooktop.

Things to do-

  • To remove the stubborn spill marks or curries or milk, sprinkle the lemon juice and baking soda evenly all over the cooktop and let it stay for a while. Then with the help of a soft scrubber wipe the surface and clean with dry cloth afterwards.
  • If there are burned out food particles accumulated over the cooktop, you can also use sharp scraper, but keep in mind to use it flat and not by the sharp edge otherwise it may leave a scratch on the glass.
  • It is recommended to splash some vinegar after every use for better cleaning

Things to avoid-

  • Never ever scrub your glass Cooktop with the steel wool scrubber. It will make the conditions worse and you will end up with marks on the Cooktop.
  • At the time of cleaning, try not putting on too much of pressure as it might lead to cracking of the glass surface.
  • Do not try any cleaning technique while the Cooktop is hot. Doing this may lead to further damage.
  • Never ever use a Batti Tandoor or a gas tandoor on a Glass Cooktop, as the excessive heat generated by it may break the glass.

Lastly, if you want your modular kitchen gas stove to be shiny always then adopt the habit of cleaning it regularly after every use. To maximize the life of your glass Cooktop, most of the expert’s advice to polish the glass with a ceramic cleaner from time to time.

Heating Appliances From Glen

We wait for winters to enjoy pleasant evenings and warm afternoons. There are many fruits, vegetable and dry fruits which are associated with this time of the year. Along with all these benefits and goodies which winter brings, it also brings very low temperatures and cold wave. And to brave the winters and enjoy warm comforts with-in our homes we need good quality energy efficient room heating appliances.

There are many ways to keep you warm during winters. We can do it by woollen garments, quilts, blankets, bukharis (very popular in Kashmir) Room Heaters etc. coming to room heaters there are many types of heating systems available and each one has its advantages and disadvantages. Some of these are listed below:

Fan Heater

Here there is a blower which throws the air through a heating element and this hot air brings up the room temperature. The advantages its quite cost effective and fast in heating the surroundings. Negatives are that it makes more noise, burns the oxygen also.

PTC Heater

Here there is a blower which throws the air instead of the resistance wire through a chain of ceramic stones or chips. This is called Positive Temperature Coefficient in short PTC it’s a unique technology which makes PTC electric heaters more efficient, safer and  superior to traditional coil electric heaters. Glen 7012 PTC heater 1800w with remote control is available. Also available 2 models of PTC heaters in ALDA range also.

 

Halogen Heater

These heaters are most effective in faster heating any given space have the option of using at various levels and provide direct heat. As these have no fans so there is no noise. It has oscillation so the distribution of heat is better. Negative is that it burns oxygen so when using this one needs to keep some ventilation and not be used in closed room overnight. Glen Halogen Heater 7016 comes in 1200w option.

Quartz Heater

In this heating system Quarts tubes are used with reflectors to provide the fast and efficient heating. As there is no fan these are without any noise. You have the option of using 1-2-3 elements as per requirement. These are very light and easy to move. The only negative is that it burns oxygen so when using this one needs to keep some ventilation and not be used in closed room overnight. Glen Quartz Heater 7017 comes with 2 quarts tubes of 400w each.

Oil Filled Radiator Heater

Generally known as OFR heaters, these work on indirect heating principal. Here the heating element heats oil and the oil then circulates in the fins and the air passing through the fins get heated up and lifts up and the cold air comes down and it starts a process of continuously heating the air in the room and brings up the temperature. This is almost a noiseless operation, until you use the PTC heater provided in most of the good quality OFR. The most distinct advantage here is that it burns no oxygen, is energy efficient, absolutely safe, looks good. The only negative is that its slightly slower in heating up the room and for it to work fast one can use the PTC heater for the first 30 minutes and then switch the same off. Glen Oil Filled Radiator heaters come in 3 sizes of 9/11/13 fins. These have wheels and handles to easily move around the house as per requirements.

You can go through the various options and then decide based on your requirement and enjoy the warmth in this cold winter.

 

Why An Air Purifier?

Every day the news headlines in the newspapers in some major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Agra, Kanpur, Kolkata and many more are highlighting the dangers of high levels of air pollution in the air we breathe in these cities. The question in every one’s mind is that do I need an Air Purifier?

The reality is that many of the cities in India are polluted much above the danger level and are not liveable, but this is also true that the opportunities to grow are also there in these major cities only. So it’s clear that one has to stay where his work is and then go out and work in that polluted environment. Yes you can’t avoid the same when you are outside. This is also true that most of us spend at least 8-10 hours in our bed rooms and living rooms and another 6-8 hours in our offices. So if we make the air purified in these 2 areas that takes care of at least 14 – 18 hours of our day which is substantial time and in case we can improve the air we breathe for these many hours we give time to our lungs to rest and also avoid the dangers of pollution by 75%.

Glen Air Purifiers are your ideal companions to achieve this goal. Glen makes three models of Air Purifiers to suit any room size and budget. These come with HEPA Filter of H 11 Grade and the carbon filters, Cold Catalyst filters, Ionizers and other features like, Sleep mode, Air Quality monitor, low noise and quite mode etc.

Gift Something You Would Love To Receive

Diwali the festival of lights is round the corner.

The idea of giving gifts on Diwali is to share the happiness with others and also to show our love and respect for others.

Modular Kitchens: Necessity Or Luxury?

It’s a debate which happens in the many young couples when setting up their new houses or renovating the old. One school of thought is that the traditional way of making kitchen through a carpenter is cheaper and lasts long whereas the modern modular kitchens although look good but are expensive and will not last long. So an expensive option which has shorter life is considered a Luxury rather than necessity. Setting up a new kitchen can be troublesome task. From deciding on the paint color to the laminates, lighting, accessories, appliances, there are so many things that keeps one baffled.

Let’s understand the difference between the two Kitchen Design Ideas. Yes it’s true that by the looks of a trendy modular kitchen it looks to be expensive but the major cause is that here you are giving one lump-sum amount to one supplier for all-inclusive kitchen with all the cost of Electric Chimney, Hob, the sliders and shelves and on the other side you are spending money in bits and pieces and at the end when you total up you find that difference is either very little or may be its other way round. And this too at the cost of convenience and the time spent on getting the kitchen made yourself or made by a professional with almost no involvement of your time.

Another major advantage in a modular kitchen idea is that it’s very functional and is designed with keeping in mind all the needs of the cooking and cleaning with proper care being taken where the cooking will happen, where the refrigerator will be kept and very the utensils will be washed as these are the three key elements in any kitchen. Moreover it also takes care of all the corners and use the same for storage, placement of waste bins, cylinders etc. The kitchen is designed and builds around the appliances like Kitchen Chimney and Built-in-Hobs, Ovens, Microwave Ovens and Dish Washers. These helps in keeping the kitchen smoke and grime free, saving of time in washing the utensils faster and hygienically. So the verdict is out that Modular kitchen do look expensive but are more of a necessity than a luxury. Thus it is always better to opt for conveneince than hassles which consume your time and energy.

Glen Launches New Range Of The Black Glass Cooktops For Your Kitchen

Glen started manufacturing a range of LPG Cook tops way back in 1999. Since then it has come out with many new innovative products from time to time.

It was Glen which came out with first Stainless Steel soft look with rounded corners. Then again the first one to launch multi-park Auto ignition in the Cooktop.

Around 2007-8 the market started shifting to Glass cooktops and that is the time Glen also launched a range of Glass Cooktops, initially customers were quite sceptical about buying Glass Cooktop due the fear of glass breaking.

There were some initial incidences of Glass breaking and customers shifting back to Stainless Steel but over a period the products were improved the thickness of the Glass was increased from earlier 6.0 MM to 8.0 MM and silicon insulation introduced between glass and stainless steel and the incidences of breakage of glass almost came down to 0.7%.

In the initial stages Glen introduced black Frame Glass Cooktops but as the Indians have a habit of using a lot of water to clean the kitchen and the gas stoves the Mild Steel used to catch rust formation very fast and then the frame use to give way. Looking into this Glen discontinued the Black Frame and introduced all the Glass Cooktops with Stainless Steel frames. In fact to make the frame absolutely rust free Glen used the entire frame in SS and also the Screws used in the assembly were converted to SS. This made the entire frame 100% Rust Proof.

As the demand for Black Frame cooktops to match with the kitchen décor and the Black chimneys in fashion today kept on rising and customers were asking for a good quality Black frame Cooktops, as a company glen always looked at the long life of the products manufactured so now a new range of Black Cooktops is launched where the frames are made with Galvanised Steel Powder coated to avoid rust formation, with this innovative technology we have been in a position to give an All BLACK Cooktop to customer without the problems of getting rusted.

A range of models has been introduced some of these are with Forged Brass Burners with 5 years of warranty on the burners, this is possible as forging makes the burners 5 times stronger than gravity casting. The Cooktops are approved by BIS and carry ISI mark. The products are now available at all the major appliances stores, all the online market places like Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal and Paytm etc. and also on the official website pages.glenindia.com visit your nearest store or online websites and upgrade to an ALL BLACK GLASS COOKTOP.

How Can A Gas Stove Be A Style Statement?

Here we share experience of a customer as narrated to our customer relations executive

I have been using a Stainless Steel Gas Stove now for over 10 years. Recently I went to a Anita’s (name changed for privacy reasons) house warming and when I went to her kitchen I saw a very sleek and elegant Glass Cooktop. I was amazed that how can one use Glass for a gas stove as it’s all the time used with flame and heat so the glass should break.

This is when I asked Anita a couple of questions and she asked me to wait for the other guests to go and then she will explain. After an hour or so when all the guests left then she took me to the kitchen for removing my doubts and said that now I may ask my doubts from her.

My first question how can Glass be used as while long hours of cooking there will be too much of heat. She replied while putting a saucepan on the small burner for making tea for us that the glass used in this Cooktop is toughened at over 800 0C and can withstand the heat. It shouldn’t break but even if it breaks its completely safe as it’s protected by a film below which will keep the pcs pasted to the film. I noticed that she has not used any lighter or matchstick to light the burner, so I couldn’t stop asking how have you ignited the burner, so she told me that this Cooktop for Kitchen is fitted with battery operated multi spark Auto ignition and once she presses the switch the sparks will ignite the burner knob she will turn on and its very convenient as you don’t have to look for the lighter or matchbox.

My next query was that how are the burners and the flame of this gas stove to which she pointed out a t the Forged Brass burners which as per her are 5 times more strong than normal brass burners and that is why come with a 5 year warranty for free replacement in case any defect develops. She also mentioned that not only that the Gas Valves of this gas stove are also warranted for 5 years against any defects and are totally safe.

While all this while the tea was ready and we started sipping the same. As some spillage happened while pouring the tea she just took a napkin and wiped the glass clean and it was shining once again like a mirror. I was too impressed. She could gauge that I still have some doubt in my mind with the glass so she informed me that not only that this glass also comes with a 5 year warranty, in case of breakage the same will be replaced free of cost , now here I couldn’t believe her and said how is it possible that any company can give warranty on the glass breakage to which she showed me the warranty card which clearly mentioned that the glass if breaks will be replaced free of cost maximum of 2 times with 5 years of date of purchase.

Then came the final question from me as I could see all this while that the brand was Glen so what is the model number and she mentioned that its Glen Mirror Cooktop CT 1048 which at present can be considered the best gas stove in India as it 70cm in width and 50cm in depth so all 4 burners can be used together. The Glass is 8.00 MM thick, Pan Supports are enamelled and 4.0 MM thick the burners are Forged Bras Burners and the Burners, Glass and gas Valves come with a 5 year warranty.

I came back from that house warming 100% convinced that my next purchase this festival season will be a Glen mirror Finish Cooktop.

Kitchen Chimney – Do You Really Need One?

Whosoever is making a new house or refurbishing the old has this question, as there is a lot of doubt around the efficacy of a chimney.

The reason behind this doubt customers have is the way the electric chimney was introduced in way back around 1993 in India.

Initial Problems

The kitchen chimney was a concept imported from Europe where the cooking uses very less of frying so the oil and fumes are quite low in these kitchens. The chimneys were imported from Europe primarily Italy and sold as it is without looking into the needs of an Indian kitchen where we use a lot of frying and cooking period is also more than two times than Europe. These chimneys had low suction and were installed with Carbon Filters for re-circulation of the air without the ducting. This resulted in further reduction of suction capacity so it couldn’t get rid of the smoke and grime. So customers who installed during that period on re-circulation mode came to the conclusion that chimney is only a decorative appliance and doesn’t perform the function effectively.

Problem solving Phase

Around 1999-2000 Glen Chimney was introduced and here the company realised the mistakes of earlier companies and introduced chimneys with higher suction, and made it a point of installing these chimneys only on exhaust mode with ducting. Although the installations were expensive and involved extra work but once the chimney installed it worked perfectly and made the kitchen smoke and grime free. This strategy started working and more and more satisfied customers started talking about it and there was a shift where people started to make place for the Electric Chimney while designing the kitchens. Most of the brands started installing chimneys on Exhaust mode with ducting and results were there for all to see.

With the issues of suction a history more and more brands brought higher suction chimneys like 1000 M3 / hrs & 1250 M3 /hrs in many designs and shapes. All this choice made the job of the customer more difficult as now he has to select from a wide range of models available and different technologies used by different brands. So although now the clarity was there that the chimney is required but the question change which one to buy?

How to select the right Kitchen Chimney

So now the dilemma shifted from du you really need a chimney to which Kitchen Hood to buy?

The parameters to be considered before buying a Kitchen Chimney are listed below:

  1. The size of the Cooktop or Hob being used in the Kitchen, so in case one is using a 60 CM or less size one can buy 60CM and in case its 70 CM or 90 CM then either a 75 CM or a 90 CM chimney can be consider to adequately cover the emanating smoke.
  2. The place kept for the Kitchen chimney while designing the kitchen, so if the space kept is 60 CM one can install 60 CM only.
  3. The size of the kitchen is also need to be looked into to select the suction power in case the size is bigger suction power chimney will be required.
  4. The length of ducting and number of bends also plays a crucial role as more the length and number of bends higher the suction power required. Ideal length is up to 10ft and 2 bends.
  5. Some other cosmetic feature in consideration can be , whether you need in Glass looks, with Push buttons or Touch Sensor control or chimneys with Heat and Gas Sensors.
  6. Last in the selection process is which brand chimney to be bought which need to be based on the quality of the product, sales after service network of the brand and how experienced and old the brand is in selling chimneys in India.

Once you have gone through the selection process then the best way is to call the brand and get the site visit done and select the model you want, get the chimney installed and enjoy the smoke free environment of your kitchen.

One thing is clear in case you have taken care of all the above points while selecting the chimney you will enjoy the benefits of the same for long times to come.
