a new addition for hob extractors in 60 cm


BORA expands with the BORA S Pure its product range by a 60 cm wide induction hob with integrated extractor hood. The narrow version is particularly suitable for small kitchens with little storage space – just the asymmetrical arrangement of the cooking zones should make order fanatics to create.

Do you know these videos on the Internet, in which magnificent cakes incorrectly cut become? For example, vertically on the creamy edge instead of in the middle in the classic cake shape. Or the pictures of circular pizzasthat make someone right in the middle a square cut out and eaten.
There are not a few people who are driven crazy – they then often refer to “their inner self monk“And thus allude to the series character of the same name who, as an obsessive-compulsive television detective, investigated over the years and in doing so in parallel with one meticulous order had to fight.

Many people are uncomfortable with this sight.  (Source: The Most Unsatisfying Video in the World ever made; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16v2eojZ_l8&t=9s)

These people are likely to get a gasp at least once when they get the new one BORA S Pure– See cooktop with integrated extractor hood. It’s rectangular – but the cooking zones are on it arranged asymmetrically. Instead of the previous, central placement of the cooktop extractor, as is common in all other BORA models, the circular extractor is used subtle to the bottom left postponed.

BORA S Pure: standard size 60 cm, but four different cooking zones

This now results in four previously equal-sized cooking zones four completely different plates with the dimensions Ø 95 mm, Ø 140 mm, Ø 175 mm and Ø 210 mm. By the way, all of this – both the four cooking zones and the integrated extractor hood – now take care 60 centimeters wide and thus correspond to the conventional size of an induction hob in the kitchen.

That alone should be a big gain for BORA buyers. While you can plan relatively flexibly when buying a new kitchen, you can renovate or replace appliances dependent on the given dimensions of the previous induction surface. Often, hobs are embedded flush in worktops made of natural stone, Dekton or plastic and therefore leave behind exact dimensions for cutouts. That the new BORA S Pure has standard dimensions for induction hobs – to be more precise 580 x 515 x 199 mm (Width / depth / height) – facilitates the exchange for many customers.

Dimensions and storage space of the BORA S Pure compared to other BORA models

For comparison: the BORA luxury class product, the Professional 3.0, requires a width of around for two cooktops with two zones each and an integrated extractor hood 1.22 meters (1,222 mm). Even the entry-level models BORA Basic, BORA PURE and BORA X PURE show 760x515x196 mm is significantly larger than the standardized 60 cm hobs. In the past, BORA saw this more as a sales argument: the company continues to advertise with the “oversized cooking zones“, On which there is space for four saucepans of up to 24 cm in size.

So now everything is a size smaller, albeit the one Storage space in the drawer under the hob with a height of 19.9 centimeters even takes up a little more space than the larger 19.6 centimeter models. BORA advertises that the BORA S Pure still offers generous storage space for pots.

Why does the BORA S Pure have asymmetrical cooking zones?

But why are the induction zones on the BORA S Pure asymmetrical arranged? Basically, that’s one thing design-focused gimmickwhich of course attracts a lot of attention.

While on the lowest level at the bottom left, for example, the Italian Bialetti mocha maker finds its place, a small pot, for example for boiling eggs, can be placed on the left above. Have right up and down larger pots, pans and even roasting pans City square. Specially developed for the BORA S Pure Induction coils ensure that the hob is optimally used and can still generate maximum efficiency.

This topic is not entirely new in that modern full-surface induction hobs – also from other brand manufacturers such as Gaggenau, Siemens and V-ZUG – work very often with induction coils, the cooking utensils recognize where they are parked and then operate accordingly. In this way, the asymmetrical arrangement of the cooking zones could be avoided and yet energy conscious Cook.

So far, BORA has only offered surface induction technology, for example in the BORA X Pure model.

Advantage of the asymmetrical arrangement with the BORA S Pure

What one can grant BORA: despite the irregular arrangement of cooking zones and cooktop extractor The cooking vapors, i.e. all vapors and odors, become one another with the BORA S Pure deducted evenly. That even brings another benefit that seems well thought out.

While small pots or objects like the espresso maker develop less steam – and thus less force in the air flow that is to be sucked in – large pots blow out a lot of steam which, due to its weight and force, can travel a “longer” distance, but is still completely absorbed to become. In other words, it makes perfect sense that the cooktop extractor of the BORA S Pure is so close to the small cooktops before the “mild breezes” be deflected by an air flow in the room and do not disappear between the grooves of the round extractor hood.
