“The Hoodini was already installed onto our oven, allowing us to simply move it into the kitchen when we were ready. If we had to install a hood in our  situation the cost would have been enormous. It  ounded too good to pass up and so far we are thrilled with the Hoodini.”

How Hoodini works animationHow hoodini works

  1. Main fan starts and pulls cooking vapors out of the oven cavity.
  2. Heavy particles drop towards the drain. Lighter particles get pulled towards the condenser.
  3. Vapor gets drawn over the condenser. As it cools, water particles from and drop towards the drain.
  4. Remaining vapor gets super heated, then passes through the platinum and palladium coated catalytic converter where gases are further reduced to carbon dioxide and water.
  5. These harmless gases are returned to the oven cavity to start the cycle over again.

 


 

hoodini certification testing

hoodini-testingTesting, conducted in accordance with EPA Test  method 202, was performed June 24-25, 2015 by UL, LLC using raw protein. Results are used to determine compliance with Section 59 of UL710B, the Standard for Recirculating Systems, formerly Section 14 of UL 197, Eighth Edition, Supplement SB, and paragraph 4.1.1.2 of NFPA96, the Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations.

Two tests were performed: Chicken (bone-in, skin-on) and Bacon.

Chicken cooking cycle: Quartered roasting chickens (approx 3 lb), two chickens per pan. 5 pans per load. Cooked at 335°F for 35 minutes.

Number of loads during 8-hour continuous test = 15 loads.

Bacon cooking cycle: Thick cut bacon, 10 slices per pan (approx. 0.9 lb) 5 pans per load. Cooked at 335°F for 18 minutes.
Number of loads during 8-hour continuous test = 23 loads.

Ventless Certification Documents

Ventless Certification is unique for each operation and is determined by the local jurisdiction/s having authority (such as health or building safety). To facilitate the documentation process, we have collected the information that might be requested by the state or local inspector. In addition to these documents, be prepared to provide menus to be prepared in the oven and a HVAC analysis that demonstrates adequate cooling.
