GOOD 10 YRS GUARANTEE FOR HIGH PRICE PAID TO FABER
16 February 2019
HERE'S WHY YOU PAY PREMIUM PRICE TO BUY FABER CHIMNEY?
ITEM ARRIVED WITH A DENT IN HOOD OUTER COVERING. Technician who arrived for installing it, lodged official complaint to FABER company for rectifying it and informed that outer-covering would be replaced by company at a later point of time. HE FINISHED HIS INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT DONE IN TWO WEEKS.
SO BOTH INSTALLATION TECHNICIAN AND FABER OFFICE ASSURE FULL SATISFACTION FOR PREMIER PRICE PAID.
1. 10 YEARS WARRANTY ON MOTOR. SINCE THEY REPLACED DENTED HOOD, FABER WARRANTY APPEAR BELIEVABLE.
2. IT DOES REMOVE NORMAL COOKING SMELL FROM HOUSE. A RELIEF IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE NOSE AND ALLERGIES. FOR EXPERIMENTING, I TRIED FRYING CHILLI POWDER AND FOUND PRODUCT NOT EFFECTIVE. THEN I TRIED SAME THING ON FABER'S ADVANCED MODEL. IT DIDN'T WORK. PRODUCT WASN'T MEANT FOR SUCH THINGS BUT NORMAL COOKING SMELL IT DOES REMOVE.
3. ARE THERE PEOPLE WHO BUY PRODUCTS BASED ON CINEMASTAR OR SPORTSTARS? APPARENTLY ACCORDING TO ADS SUCH PEOPLE EXIST. WILL THAT FAMOUS CINEMA ACTOR OR SPORTS MODEL REPAIR YOUR CHIMNEY FOR FREE IF IT SUFFERS DAMAGE?
1. INSTALLATION COST:= Rs.2250/- ALMOST 25% of product cost. Rs.500 - Manufacturer installation cost, Rs.800 labour for fixing ducting, Aluminium duct - Rs.950/-. In this labour cost and aluminium duct cost appear genuine though very expensive. Manufacturer's installation charges of Rs.500/- is purely aggressive pricing.
2. It seems Faber Baffle filters have to be cleaned fortnightly using a special powder and liquid sold only by them and not available online also. It costs Rs. 650/- additionally. Packet size is so small, it wouldn't last six months. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? SPENDING RS.650 every six months FOR CLEANING KITCHEN CHIMNEY? Rs1300 per year exclusively for cleaning KITCHEN CHIMNEY? (THERE IS A WORKAROUND WHICH I'VE MENTIONED IN END.)
WHY IS IT THAT CORPORATES THINK ONLY OF FIGHTING THEIR COMPETITION THROUGH MEDIA ADVERTISING WITHOUT ANY VALUE ADDITION TO THEIR OWN CUSTOMERS? MEDIA GETS ADVERTISING REVENUE, SPONSORSHIP REVENUE AND ON TOP OF IT A SUBSCRIPTION REVENUE FROM BILLION HOMES.
SINCE 1990, ONLY PEOPLE WHO BENEFITED WAS MEDIA. DEFINITELY NOT CONSUMERS.
ONLY DISADVANTAGE IS THAT DAMN POWDER FOR Rs. 650 EVERY SIX MONTHS. NOT PLANNING TO BUY IT. SAW PPL USING CAUSTIC POTASH IN YOU TUBE. WILL USE THAT.
