BORA principle

We come up with innovative ideas that enrich and improve people’s everyday lives. We believe in our vision of ‘the end of the extractor hood’.


Fresh Air

Cooking in the comfort zone

BORA draws off odours and grease particles directly from the cookware. This prevents cooking vapours from rising up and spreading annoyingly throughout the whole room. The grease particles released during cooking are effectively trapped in the stainless steel grease filter. This will make you feel like you are cooking in the fresh air.

Quiet Operation

Significantly quieter than conventional extractor hoods

Conventional extractor hoods blast out around 70 dB (A) directly at head height. BORA is quite different - it is quieter than frying a steak, even when set to the highest level. This is possible thanks to the sophisticated technology with quiet motors, perfect decoupling and installation of the products in the kitchen plinth.

Clear View

No annoying head-height extractor hoods

BORA means freedom from the constraints of conventional extractor hoods. No edges or corners at head height. No stooped stance. No steam to block your view or cloud up your glasses. No restriction on visibility. Thanks to BORA, chefs are not trapped on their own but can interact with guests.

Simple Cleaning

Why make things difficult when there is an easy option?

Cleaning conventional extractor hoods is laborious and time-consuming. In contrast, BORA products impress with outstanding everyday advantages, even when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. All three movable parts can be easily dismantled without any tools and cleaned in the dishwasher.


Focus on the bare essentials

Conventional extractor hoods work extremely hard for a comparatively limited result. BORA cooktop extractors are a smart and highly effective solution. The best evidence of this is 100 % cleanrate at head height This is because the intelligently used flow speed and innovative motor technology guide vapours directly to their destination.

Best materials

High functionality and long service life

High-quality materials which ensure an excellent degree of functionality and a long service life are united in a premium system with no compromises. We set design standards by using pure stainless steel and heavy-metal-free glass ceramic. We promise that cooking with BORA will offer long-lasting delight.

Design Freedom

The benchmark for a new kitchen architecture

BORA opens up a whole new range of kitchen design options. Virtually everything is possible: Cooking by the window or under eaves, cooker islands with no annoying hoods, more room for top cupboards in small kitchens, seamless minimalism... This is what makes BORA the new benchmark for kitchen aesthetics.

Physics can be so ingenious

Instead of letting cooking vapours and odours rise in the first place, BORA cooktop extractors draw them away where they are created, directly extracting them from the pot, roaster, pan or grill on the cooktop. And they do this not by magic but by applying the basic principles of fluid mechanics. For this BORA simply uses a cross flow which is greater than the speed at which the cooking vapours rise.



Until now, the performance of extractor hoods has been assessed according to DIN EN 61591. This measures the fan power, the reduction of odours and grease filtering. Upon determining the MEK value (methyl ethyl ketone content in the room air), the elimination of unwanted side-effects of cooking can also be measured. The cleanrate procedure has been devised to objectively compare the performance of different extractor hoods.

With an effective extractor system you can cook as if you were in the fresh air - by reaching a 100 % cleanrate. Measurements of a cleanrate procedure prove: A 100 % cleanrate for BORA - a result the conventional extractor hoods can only dream of.

Exhaust air or recirculation

Exhaust system

With the BORA exhaust system, the fan channels cooking vapours straight outside through the BORA Ecotube duct system and the BORA 3box wall sleeve. This removes all vapours and odours from the cooking area. As, unlike conventional extractor hoods, all BORA systems use intelligent flow technology rather than a high flow volume, less warm inside air is expelled from the house, thereby saving energy.

Recirculation system

The BORA recirculation system is the alternative solution to exhaust-air variants. The fan directs the cooking vapours into the specially developed recirculation filters, which effectively eliminate odours from the kitchen exhaust air. As such, the BORA recirculation systems keep the air in kitchens fresh. As the recirculation systems keep the warm air in the house, they are ideal for passive houses as well as low and nearly zero-energy buildings.
