No extractor hoods sticking out at head height.
BORA releases you from the constraints of conventional extractor hoods. No edges or corners at head height for you to bump into. No need to stoop. No annoying steam in your field of vision – or condensing on your glasses. Nothing to limit your vision. In open-plan kitchens in particular, BORA ensures that cooks are no longer sidelined, but can join in with the party atmosphere.
Significantly quieter than conventional extractor hoods.
Noise means stress. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable in many aspects of our lives. But why on earth do we voluntarily subject ourselves to the noise of an extractor hood when we are cooking? After all, the noise level is a good 70 dB(A) – and at head height! Clearly too loud, and too stressful. BORA, on the other hand, can hardly be heard when cooking or frying – even at the highest setting the sounds are minimal, and quieter even than frying a steak. This is made possible by the sophisticated technology which uses quiet motors that aren't mounted at head height. Perfect sound attenuation goes even further, to make your cooking adventures a pleasure – especially in open-plan kitchens.
Cook in fresh air at last – and finally without intrusive extractor hoods.
The further cooking vapours travel before they are drawn off, the more grease and odour particles are distributed throughout the room, settling on furniture and penetrating into textiles. The result: you, your family and your guests spend several days being reminded of what you've fried, boiled or braised. BORA puts an effective end to this. Grease particles released during cooking are no longer allowed to spread throughout the room, but are trapped in the stainless steel grease filter.
Freedom in Planning
New possibilities for kitchen architecture.
In addition to the many technical advantages that BORA provides, it is the completely new kitchen design opportunities that make BORA so impressive – you can do virtually everything that you ever dreamed of. You can cook in front of a window or under the eaves, have a kitchen island without a bulky hood, more space for hanging cabinets in smaller kitchens, seamless minimalism... This makes BORA the benchmark in new kitchen aesthetics – entirely free from intrusive extractor hoods.
BORA does not waste any precious resources.
The calculation is simple: conventional extractor hoods extract up to 1,000 m3/h of air from your kitchen. That not only increases electricity consumption, but is also noticeable on your heating bills. After all, the hood draws off not only cooking vapours, but valuable room heat – a sheer waste of precious resources.
BORA works in harmony with the environment and draws off less than half as much air as conventional extractor hoods. Our approach is to make clever use of flow speed rather than large air volumes, which will be especially appreciated by all environmentally-minded cooks looking to run low- or zero-energy houses.
Easy to clean in the dishwasher.
Cleaning extractor hoods is a problem in itself: complicated, time-consuming, often only possible using some tool or another, and with questionable success. And this is true not only for the inner workings of the hood, but also the large external surfaces. Ceiling vents are a particular challenge: what with filter removal, filter installation and cleaning, you need to climb a stepladder at least three times. With BORA, however, cleaning is child's play. All moving parts can be dismantled by hand, without the use of tools. Then you just put the parts in the dishwasher – done.
High-quality materials for a long service life.
When it comes to the quality of our products, only the best is good enough for us. High-quality materials that guarantee a high degree of functionality and durability combine to create a premium system with no compromises. This is why all the visible metal parts of the BORA cooktop extractors are made from pure stainless steel. All the glass ceramic cooktops in our three product lines are made of ceramic glass from Schott, which is free of heavy metals – and unique worldwide. So that you can have lasting joy in cooking with BORA.
