 4. Minimise cooking pollutants

 

First tip to cooking is to ventilate every time you do. Ventilate more than you cook. To help you with ventilation in the kitchen, get yourself a hood as it is the most effective way to do it. When you get one, make sure to use it regularly, too!

 

People report not using them because they are noisy. Sometimes it can be because they fell turning on the hood is not needed unless removing smoke, odours and moisture. It can also be as simple as because they forgot. Nonetheless, use your range hood as often as you can. Diversity its uses since that’s the role of a range hood anyway.

 

A side note for homeowners who owns a hood range. Almost any hood ranges work better if you cook on the back burner. Put on a low speed and cook on a single back burner, and you will typically be able to capture 50% to 70% of the pollutants.
