Estella Copper Range Hood I
Copper vs Stainless Steel..
Copper range hoods don’t need much attention or maintenance. Copper range hoods don’t need constant scrubbing or polishing and are nearly maintenance free! Stainless steel range hoods will need to be polished almost weekly if you cook. They collect dust and grease, which makes surface look dirty and yellowish over time. Any scratches and dents on stainless steel creates a unpleasant mess.
There is nothing more beautiful than natural copper material. Some of the most beautiful range hood designs are made of copper. Rustic or shiny bright patina can complement both the new and old world kitchen styles. Hand hammered patterns add more character to a copper range hood and are a part of what gives it a distinctive look. This flexibility makes copper range hoods an excellent choice for any kitchen!
Copper ages gracefully...
Unlike other metal elements, copper becomes more beautiful with time. It’s true, mother nature has given copper a magical aging process. When left alone, copper interacts with its environment and naturally deepens in color and tone. Your copper range hood will become more beautiful as it ages!
Cleaning your range hood...
Use clean soft, non-abrasive cloth or towel with soap and warm water. Please do not scrub with any acid based chemicals, this will damage the patina. It’s best to wipe your copper range hood dry to prevent any dry spots(these spots may effect or even ruin the patina finish). We always recommend to apply a light coat of wax to your range hood. This will add a layer of protection for your range hood patina finish against dust and grease. How often should you clean your range hood? As often as needed. This could be every 6-10 months(depending on how heavy and often you cook).
If you happen to scratch your range hood and end up with a shiny, bright streak, please let your range hood heal itself. Yes, you heard that right! Over short period of time the scratch will darken and cover with same patina color. No need to help the copper do its magic!
