How to clean a metal mesh cooker hood filter

Published

Metal mesh extractor fan filters have to be cleaned rather than replaced. To tackle the task properly, watch Rory show you how it's done.

Please note: FilterKleen cooker hood cleaner shown in the video is no longer available. We've tested this Indesit Professional Oven Cleaner Spray and it shifts grease from mesh cooker hood filters just as well.

Cooker hoods have two types of grease filter. Your hood will either have a fabric style filter, which must be replaced when it's become saturated with fat, or it will have a metal mesh filter, which has got to be cleaned.

For this, you could use Rangehood FilterKleen. All you need to do is cover both sides of the filter with the FilterKleen, and then leave to soak for ten minutes. Now you just need to give them a thorough rinse and make sure the tap's on quite high.

There you go, loads cleaner.
