These oil collectors can be removed and cleaned at regular intervals when necessary.
How a Self cleaning | Autoclean chimney work?
These chimneys come with a powerful automatic blower that sucks hot fumes and smoke from the gas stove.

These particles get trapped on the filters present on the blowers and the fumes and smoke are sent outside the house via duct.
