Is this the end of the extractor hood?

Is this the end of the extractor hood?


We have been supplying BORA hobs for the last 18 months and we are now finding that more and more customers like the planning flexibility they offer, so much so that we can see a future where wall or ceiling mounted extraction could be a thing of the past.  Read on to discover more about the advantages of cooking on a BORA.

Fresh Air

The advantage of fresh air: cooking while surrounded by fresh air

The further cooking vapours travel before they are drawn off, the more odour and grease particles are distributed in the room, settling on furniture and penetrating textiles.
BORA puts an end to all that. Grease particles released during cooking are no longer allowed to spread throughout the room, but are instead trapped in the stainless steel grease filter resulting in a huge reduction in lingering cooking smells. After cooking, simply close the cover and the odours remain in the filter.

Clear View

The advantage of a clear view: no annoying head-height extractor hoods

BORA frees you from the constraints of conventional extractor hoods. No edges and corners at head height for you to bang your head on. No need to stoop while you cook. No vapours swirling around the kitchen – or condensing on your glasses.  This is of particular advantage in open plan kitchens allowing the space to look less utilitarian. 

Freedom in Planning

The advantage of planning freedom: setting the standard in new kitchen architecture

Besides the many technical advantages that you enjoy with BORA, it is above all the completely new possibilities for kitchen planning that BORA really knows how to impress with. You can do practically anything that you have ever wanted to: cook in front of a window or under the eaves, have a kitchen island without a bulky hood and more space for hanging cabinets in smaller kitchens and enjoy seamless minimalism... all because of the space gained by doing away with an extractor hood. Thanks to its compact dimensions, you still have lots of space in the floor units. This makes BORA the benchmark in new kitchen aesthetics.


The advantage of effectiveness: a focus on the bare essentials

Conventional extractor hoods work extremely hard for a comparatively limited result. Vapours and odours have to travel long distances before they are intercepted. Even then, it is not usually possible for all of the vapours to be suctioned away – more than half of them escape.
BORA cooktop extractors are a smart and highly effective solution. The best evidence of this is the head-height Cleanrate of 100 %. This is made possible by the intelligent use of the flow speed and innovative motor technology, which suction away the vapour at the precise point where it is created – without any detours or unnecessarily large volumes of air. And there is even a pleasant side effect: BORA also enables you to save energy.

Easy to clean

Easy cleaning advantage: why make things difficult when there is an easy option?

Cleaning extractor hoods is a problem in itself: complicated, time-consuming, often requiring the use of tools and producing doubtful results. And this is true not only when cleaning the inside of the hood, but also the large external surfaces.
BORA is different. Our innovative products not only provide real pleasure and quality of life while cooking, but are also extremely useful on a daily basis and easy to clean and maintain. All three moving parts can be dismantled quickly and easily by hand, without the use of tools. Then you just put the parts in the dishwasher – done.

Best Materials

The advantage of using the best materials: high functionality and long service life

Only the best is good enough for us when it comes to the quality of our products. High-quality materials which ensure a high degree of functionality and a long service life are united in a premium system with no compromises. Every metallic part of BORA cooktop extractors is made of pure stainless steel. Our HiLight and induction cooktops are made of glass ceramic material, which is free of heavy metals.
We promise that cooking with BORA will offer long-lasting delight.

Kitchen of the Month July

Kitchen of the Month July

July's Kitchen of the month features a period property in Montpellier, Cheltenham.  The lantern roof in the extension floods the kitchen living area with light making it a wonderful place to entertain.  This area of the kitchen also opens out onto a beautiful private terrace and the split level layout creates two distinct zones, cooking and entertaining.

A good colour balance was achieved by combining highlights of petrol blue with a neutral mohair colour on the cabinetry a warm highland Oak on the wall units.
