Why AISI 304 stainless steel?
One detail that shouldn’t be overlooked about the extractor hoods by Falmec is the fact that they are made of AISI 304 stainless steel. For the company, this is an obvious quality choice, given its vision to offer high-end quality appliances.
However, what you should know is that this material is the only one that is truly stainless due to the nickel that is part of its alloy.
This means that you can install your Lumen Island extractor hood at home regardless of the type of weather, including coastal climates where saltpeter affects the metal because this appliance will pass that test with flying colors. So, if you feel like renovating your kitchen to change something in that place that did so much for you during this pandemic, you already know that this extractor hood that floats above your countertop is an option that you shouldn’t underestimate.
