How often do you clean your vent hood?

10 years ago

Finally got our vent hood hooked up. Finally was able to season a new wok (Christmas present) and made the first stir fry. Cleaned range afterwards but was surprised at lingering smell. Took baffles out of vent hood and they were very dirty, lots of oil.

This is a Blue Star range and Prestige 1200 CFM fan with baffles. I had used high heat and there was a lot of "breath of the wok." But still I was surprised to see how dirty the baffles got after one use.

Soaked them and scrubbed them but still think there is just a slight smell -- may-be my imagination. But, it seems that they will need to be cleaned after every significant cooking session.

Should I be surprised? Is this your experience?
