great innovation

published

This is such a brilliant innovation. Very suited for confined apartment space. Very efficient suction. I am definitely a happy customer. Would recommend it strongly except for the fact that it is rather pricey! Still worth though.

So nice not to have an overhead rangehood!

published

For our new kitchen we agonised over how to get an extractor over the island bench with our stuffing up the openness of the design. Stumbled across the Bora downdraft. It is brilliant. Incredibly efficient, works liike a dream.

It is pretty pricy and compatible only with their cooktops, but the quality is superb and it is by far the best downdraft we looked at so worth it.

Highly recommend looking at this approach if you want to avoid an overhead extraction system.

Nikki L.asked

Am I able to have drawers under the Bora basic or does the duct take up the whole underneath cupboard?

Not sure about the basic, but the classic used about 100mm under the unit and then a portion of a cupboard (about 200x400mm I think) for the duct to under the floor.

YES, you can have drawers under the BASIC however the loss from the top of the bench is approximate 220mm please refer to the BORA website and their installation specs. https://www.bora.com/fileadmin/downloads/152_productManualDatasheet_en_gb10270.pdf

We want to put a Bora Downdraft Extractor into our kitchen island but do not want an overhead extractor fan. We don't however have any duct in the island that we can use to take the steam out. Is there any way around this? The kitchen island is not attached to an external wall either.

Ours is in an island too. The extraction pipe goes down inside a cupboard and out under the floor. Very little space needed in the cupboard.

Thanks Julian for responding. That's our problem in that we cannot now change or do anything to the floor as it has just been completed. We are in the middle of the house build so it may be that we reposition our hob elsewhere as we are finalising the kitchen design over the next week.

If you are not able to have any pipes under your floor than the alternative would be to run the BORA System as recirculated installation whereby the air is filtered for odours, however the steam is still inside your kitchen as you only filter it through carbon filters which need to be changed (ca. every 12 to 24 month as the will eventually get stale meaning they do not any longer absorb the smell) Many apartment installations are done this way as they also cant duct - Best is to contact BORA direct at their Head Office in Sydney - 02 8076 3514.

Hi
Just wondering if anybody has installed a bora downdraft cooktop above an oven?
We are trying to have no overheads so this is the perfect option but just not sure if there is a way to do this with the size of the venting pipes.
Will the heat from the oven damage the vents?
What sort of clearances are needed?
Thanks

That is a question you really need to direct to Bora.

I imagine it would be ok as the extraction system takes very little space under he cooktop and the motor etc can be under the floor. As to heat, again I imagine that would be ok but really should be checked with the manufacturer.
