Hob with retractable hood

A hob with an integrated hood is the latest trend for those looking for a minimalist kitchen, with a linear design and the latest technology.It is two electrical appliances in one that combines aesthetics with practicality.

Before seeing the overview of the most famous brands, we remind you that when you opt for this type of item, the kitchen design must take a few things into account:

  • first of all consider whether the hood is suction or filtering, therefore whether it needs fumes to escape, or if it will only have special grilles that purify the air.
  • You must consider where it is positioned and the size of the motor (with the assembly sheet of each element).
  • The type of furniture on which it will be mounted: if a base with hinged door or if a base with pull-out baskets, which could be mounted with a reduced depth.

The Bora extraction system

The sophisticated Bora extraction system extracts the hob’s odours and water vapour down into the unit.It is available in three different versions, the Basic, Classic and Professional, with touch control and designed to ensure maximum use and cleaning efficiency.
