The security measures of this model, such as the cessation of the passage of gas after the detection of an excess of carbon monoxide in the environment and unexpected changes in the flame, generate confidence in the buyers.
The equipment does not include the necessary material for the installation of the gas cylinder, so both the shower head and the hose and clamps must be purchased separately.
It is a butane gas stove with an elegant and discreet design, which you can place in any room without taking up much space or interfering with the existing decoration.
Main Features Explained
Gas stoves are one of the alternatives that the market makes available to us, with the purpose of effectively heating the different rooms of our home or workplace during the coldest season of the year. These teams are usually quite safe. However, it is necessary that, during the manufacturing process, its developers take certain precautions regarding the connections, the passage of gas and the volume of carbon monoxide, among other aspects.
The De’Longhi house knows how important this issue is with regard to gas heating appliances, which is why it has decided to incorporate a double safety system into its VBF stoves, so that you can use said equipment with total reliability.
In this way, when the stove is running and some type of fault associated with the flame occurs, the gas outlet will immediately be interrupted, thanks to the automatic closing of said valve. Likewise, this mechanism will be activated when the built-in sensor detects that the volume of carbon monoxide emitted and concentrated in the room has exceeded 1.5%. This is a very convenient measure, especially at night, when we are more vulnerable to inhaling this type of gas without noticing it.
Power and performance
Power is the energy production capacity of a unit for starting up a device. This specification is of great importance, because it is responsible for determining the high, medium or low level of operation of a given equipment. Likewise, knowing the workforce of the product, we will be able to calculate the average electrical consumption, which you should always try to keep as low as possible. In this way, you will avoid raising the price of your monthly electricity bill. Remember that, the higher the power, the greater the heating power and the shorter the consumption time.
Regarding the heating power provided by the De’Longhi VBF stove, we have that it has been provided with a power of 4200 watts or 4.2 kilowatts. It is a product designed to emit a volume of heat suitable for heating rooms no larger than 35 square metres.
The best of all is that you have the possibility of regulating this energy according to your needs, since in the upper part of the structure you have a small side control. From this device, you will be able to adjust the size of the blue flame, which ultimately determines the heating power. It is important that you know that you can choose between a preset adjustment or gradually regulate it.
Design and weight
Among the best stoves, you will find this VBF model of the De’Longhi brand pleasantly positioned, which is characterized by having a quite attractive design in gray with black details. Although the casing is rectangular, its contours have been rounded to stylize its body, visually balancing the product. In the lower part, a practical removable base with a bearing system stands out, which gives the design an adequate level of mobility that is complemented by the pair of ergonomic side handles.
It is also important to mention that in the rear area of the structure there is a compartment with its respective lid, with a format similar to that of a door and a secure closure, where you can place the gas cylinder and make the respective connection.
According to the opinions of the users, another of the details that manage to capture the attention at first sight is the front grille that reveals the blue flame generated after its start-up.
Regarding the format of the product, it is a structure with a width, depth and length corresponding to 43 x 48 x 78 centimeters and only 2.5 kilograms in weight. This means that you will not have problems with regard to the space occupied in the room during the winter, nor in summer when storing it in the closet, since it is quite compact.
