pure aesthetics for pure air


Hobs with a downdraft extractor have long since become the technical – and optical – standard in modern kitchen planning. Siemens crowns this development with the new one inductionAir Plus: a very modern one Induction hob with integrated Downdraft fanthat meets the highest design standards. With the 60 centimeters A wide new addition to the product family, small base units now also benefit from the enjoyable luxury of cooking without an extractor hood.

Installation depth: Siemens beats BORA with 37 centimeters more storage space

Compared to the competition, the inductionAir Plus takes up very little space in the cabinets below: 23 centimeters downwards are sufficient to install the technology behind the hob.

If necessary, the user can expand his device with the separately available one Cooking sensor plus, which is attached directly to the pot and via Bluetooth communicates with the hob. The sensor detects the temperature set by the user and prevents overcooking through intelligent countermeasures.

Exhaust air or circulating air: what should it be?

The customer also experiences flexibility with the Ventilation type: inductionAir Plus runs optionally in Recirculation or exhaust air mode. A practical function when you consider that the type of ventilation in an existing kitchen space is usually predetermined by the structure. In exhaust air mode, vapors and odors are led outside through a wall duct.

In recirculation mode, the used air runs through one Activated carbon filter and is returned to the room cleaned. Siemens is also free to choose the air circulation technology: inductionAir Plus can also be used unguided air circulation operate. This is particularly beneficial for small kitchen spaces with a worktop depth of 60 centimeters or more. Speaking of ventilation: a sensor monitors the ventilation permanent and automatically adjusts the ventilation performance to the cooking behavior. When the cooking process is finished, inductionAir Plus switches to the for 10 minutes Post-ventilation mode and then switches the ventilation off automatically.
