Kitchen extractor fans by design

Whisk away kitchen steam and odours with a statement hood or hideaway extractor hob

Promotional Feature By Caroline Rodrigues |

Now that the kitchen has become part of family living space, a kitchen extractor fan not only has to get on with its job efficiently and quietly, it has to look amazing, too. When it comes to cutting-edge designs with high level performance, Elica’s range is second to none.

Extractor hobs

Any enthusiastic cook with dreams of a spacious open-plan kitchen space should consider an extractor hob rather than the more conventional cooker hood. Elegant and unobtrusive, this appliance combines two kitchen elements that are usually independent. Alongside a sleek hob, the unit provides built-in extraction. Elica’s NikolaTesla range includes induction and gas models in several sizes.

Choose a simple model or splash out on a sophisticated version that will meet your every need. Recirculating models have accessible ceramic odour filters and all come with a five-year warranty.

Natural interaction

Great chefs have an intuitive feel for cooking and a finely tuned style compass when choosing kitchen extractor fans. With stylish Italian looks complemented by perfectly weighted knobs, the NikolaTesla Unplugged hob extractor is a pleasure to use.

The knobs are smooth, instantaneous and intuitive, responding even when your hands are wet or greasy. A central glass flap conceals the extraction area.

Techno cooking

Elica’s NikolaTesla Switch Glow blends functionality with aesthetics. Its elegant lines, premium materials and state-of-the-art technology make this extractor hob the perfect addition to a contemporary kitchen.

The warm function will keep your dishes at the perfect temperature until you’re ready to serve and the bridge zones allow you to combine cooking zones to accommodate large cookware. For easy reading, even in very bright or dimly lit kitchens, Switch Glow incorporates the brightest white on black illumination.

Explore the range

If you find you’ve blown the budget and are looking for more affordable appliances when it comes to choosing appliances, don’t discard the idea of an extractor hob. The Elica Alpha and Fit models offer excellent value and great flexibility. Alpha, with a sleek black surface, comes in an 80cm size and Fit comes in 60, 70 and 80cm sizes.

Built-in hoods

Where a clean uncluttered look is a must, a built-in extractor hood will fit right in. Both understated and powerful, this is the choice for open plan living or kitchens with a minimalist style.

Elica’s high performance Sleek concealed extractor comes in stainless steel or stainless steel/white glass, with LED diffused lighting and touch controls. The A-rated appliance comes in 60cm or 80cm sizes. Boxin extractors come in various versions and 60cm, 90cm or 120cm sizes.

Statement hoods

For those with a sense of drama, the Interstellar kitchen extractor fan is the ideal choice. The statement cooker hood in mirrored polished steel includes more than 1,000 individual pieces of glass to refract the light, creating a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. A sensor in the hood automatically detects the quantity and quality of cooking vapours, adjusting the extraction as required.

Wall-Mounted hoods

Fancy creating an urban kitchen feel? Available in a variety of metallic finishes Dolce is a wall-mounted cooker hood with a twist. An organic shape and gentle curves soften the profile and hide away the very latest extraction technology.

Super slim

The Elica range also includes Super Plat, an ultra slim wall-mounted cooker hood with multi-directional fume capture. Designed in keeping with the trend for minimalism, Super Plat perfectly fits the linear kitchen style. Its Multi-d Capture function extracts all round the hood’s perimeter.

And then there’s Thin, a contemporary ultra slim take on the classic T-shaped cooker hood, which is designed with touch control, three extraction speeds plus two intensive modes, and an efficient long-life filter. Suitable for both ducted and recirculating ventilation, Thin is ideal for use above a large hob or range cooker.

At an angle

Bloom is one of many angled hoods in the Elica range of kitchen extractor fans. It works particularly effectively and quietly – visible but discreet.

Ceiling hoods

For islands and peninsula units a ceiling hood is often the best solution and Elica has a wide range to choose from. Skydome provides extensive and fully adjustable lighting whereas Illusion disappears into the ceiling.
