We've made a decision about style type for our hood and are now deciding between baffles and mesh (Vent a Hood has been eliminated). I know mesh has to be kept very clean it order for it to work efficiently, but I believe I could just pop the mesh filters in the dishwasher. Baffles I think I also take out and could put in the dishwasher--I think.
I assume with either I'd also have to clean the "frame" area around the filter. But, I do not want to have to spend a lot of time cleaning other inner parts of a vent hood--housing, fan blades etc.. What has been your experience with cleaning your hood? Thanks. Lazy soul that I am, I figure this is part of the decision making process too.
