Extraction takes a downward path to top performance


n important part of any kitchen design is extraction. Performance is

crucial but should never come at a cost to aesthetics. Focusing on excellent quality, an eye for detail and unique design, the downdraft cooktop extractor is based on a simple principle of physics: drawing away vapours and odours at a greater speed than they rise. The result: the vapour is completely extracted. This technology is a growing trend in kitchen

design, challenging the status quo of cooker hoods and could symbol the end of the extractor hood. This is because a head-height extractor hood can constrain the room’s design – depending on where it is sited it can create a visual obstacle and restrict the room’s layout, particularly when it needs to be sited above an island unit right in the centre of the kitchen. Inventiveness is required: who wants to visually overload a small kitchen with a bulky hood? With the extraction system

built into the cooktop, a seamless and minimal finish is achieved, with the design of the space overall not compromised in any way. A downdraft extraction system quite literally

removes the steam and odours away from pots and pans exactly as they arise, drawing them downwards before they have the chance to permeate the air. With odours being released at source the cook themselves is not part of the cooking process and the extraction rate is more powerful than with a conventional cooker hood. Style-wise, a downdraft extraction system

delivers too. Built into the cooktop, a seamless and minimal finish is achieved. Ideal for compact situations where there is little room for bulky appliances and with a slim-line design that fits seamlessly into an open-plan setting, a downward extraction system incorporated into a cooktop always presents a professional image and plays a huge role in ensuring the kitchen is at the heart of the home.

Cook like a pro with BORA B

ORA Professional 3.0 is a modular system that can be customised to suit

individual requirements. It comes with a wide range of cooktops, from surface induction and gas through to the Tepan stainless steel grill for precise temperature control, all of which can be combined with the downdraft extraction system.

With an impressive depth of 54cm, the

cooktops and cooking zones provide ample space for cooking with even very large pots, pans and roasters, while the extraction system removes odours and vapours at source, automatically adjusting to the cooktop usage and with quiet operation. The design highlight of the BORA Professional 3.0 is the subtle, stainless steel control knob with a

black glass front and sensitive touch-operated surface with a high-definition, white LED display. All functions are activated by twisting the knob and tapping the central touch-operated surface. For more details visit our website.
