EDITORIAL

“Let’s make kitchens more attractive. . .”

Willi Bruckbauer, developer

and founder of BORA

Lüftungstechnik, on an idea

that turned the kitchen

world upside down in just

a few years.

This was the basic idea. As a carpenter with a kitchen studio, I spent every day with customers

who wanted us to make their dream kitchens a reality. Even a decade ago, I was often

anxiously asked: “Do we really have to use such a huge, noisy extractor hood? Isn’t there

a more attractive option?” My inability to offer buyers an optimum solution was something

that I saw as both an annoyance and a challenge. I set to work developing a system that

could draw vapours downwards. I was driven by pure curiosity, but also the ambition to

make kitchens a more attractive and enjoyable place. Many months passed before I finally

put pen to paper with a design for an extractor that could optimally extract vapours

downwards. At the time, I never imagined that my idea would turn the kitchen world

upside down to such an extent.

Ten years have now passed since I established BORA. And I have believed in my idea right from

day one. Our focus is on innovative and solution-oriented technologies that help to improve

people’s quality of life. The perfect kitchens also have to work perfectly. They have to be easy

to clean and quiet, i.e. with no annoying noises to distract people from cooking and enjoying

life in the kitchen. As the kitchen is the heart of the home and the place where meals are

lovingly prepared, the environment should be full of fresh air rather than lingering cooking

odours.

Nowadays, cooktop extractors are completely on-trend. It is said that we, at BORA, triggered

this hype. And I sometimes rub my eyes in amazement at this. But our fan community,

which now cooks with BORA in over 50 countries, proves us right. The huge success that

our company has achieved is somewhat of a revolution and one that has only been made

possible thanks to our many motivated employees and kitchen retailers. We may well have

fundamentally altered the design and function of kitchens, but we are not stopping here.

We are continuing to develop innovations for our customers.

In this edition of our magazine, we will present a new product to you: the BORA Basic All

Black, the well-established system further refined with a black air inlet nozzle. The colour

scheme is characterised by stylish understatement and purism at its finest. Turn to page

36 to find out more. The magazine naturally also covers everything you need to know

about our Basic, Classic and Professional product ranges, including planning instructions,

application and combination options, dimensions and technical details.

We invite you to take a look at our company and our philosophy, our worlds of experience

with recipes, the BORA Cooking Truck and our commitment to cycling, not to mention kitchen

and architectural topics. Everything that motivates and inspires us to make the world of

kitchens a little better every day.

Enjoy browsing our magazine.

Welcome to our world!

Yours,

Willi Bruckbauer

BORA PRINCIPLE

The BORA principle

Innovation

Innovation not imitation. 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’.

8

BORA MAGAZINE


The BORA principle or:

physics can be so ingenious.

1

Kitchen vapours rise at a maximum

speed of one metre per second.

2

The BORA cooktop extractor extracts

downward at approx. four metres per second.

3

The higher cross flow suctions away

cooking vapours and odours effectively,

directly at the cooktop.

BORA is synonymous with innovation

and creativity in the kitchen. We have

revolutionised the design and function of

kitchens. The BORA principle is gaining

increasing ground. We believe in our vision

of ‘the end of the extractor hood’. We offer

more freedom, enhanced functions and

extraordinary design options.

We set the highest quality standards for

our products and services. The fact that

our production sites are based in Germany

and Austria ensures that we fulfil these

commitments. We only use high-quality

materials, such as stainless steel and

glass, and avoid substances that are

hazardous to the environment. We work

with excellent preliminary suppliers

including SCHOTT, E.G.O. and ebm-papst

for our motor technology, enabling

us to only ever bring top-quality

products onto the market that benefit

our customers and are environmentally

sustainable.

The BORA principle is catching on. More

and more manufacturers are realising

that our vision of the end of the extractor

hood offers new kitchen design options

and outstanding customer benefits. We

remain focused. Cooking vapours and

odours are no match for BORA

we suction them away precisely where

they arise, i.e. directly at the cooktop.

We extract vapours straight from pots,

roasters, pans or grills by means of physics,

not by magic! We simply use a cross

flow which is greater than the speed at

which the cooking vapours rise.

Advances in patented technology

We work with patents. Our cooktop

extractor systems are so effective and

energy efficient that their performance

goes far beyond that of conventional

extractor hoods and modern

interpretations. We are extremely

active in research and development

with 55 international patent applications

currently pending.

Cleanrate or the true measure of

performance

Extractor hoods are assessed according

to DIN EN 61591, which measures the

fan power, volume and grease filtering.

BORA devised the cleanrate procedure

in order to compare the performance of

different systems objectively in terms of

their ability to eliminate the unwanted

side-effects of cooking.

The cleanrate refers to the air purity level

while cooking. The higher odour particles

rise, the more they contaminate the air

in the kitchen. Conventional extractor

hoods only extract some of the vapours

generated. In tests, BORA achieves a

cleanrate of almost 100% directly at

head height a level that manufacturers

of traditional extractor hoods can only

dream of. Cooking with BORA is like

cooking in the fresh air.

Constantly improving constantly

progressing

BORA is now offering its customers an

extended warranty on all BORA cooktop

extractor systems. To benefit, simply

go to www.mybora.com and enter the

code from the sticker on the cooktop

extractor. This will automatically extend

your warranty by another year, free

of charge. We train our global retail

partners using our in-house training

measures to make sure that our

customers are given top-quality advice.

At the BORA Training Lab in Raubling,

we hold daily training sessions on

installation, advice and sales to

guarantee that our customers receive

the best advice and implementation

services on site. Our Planning

department helps our specialist

suppliers optimally implement your

system. BORA’s very own international

service team deals with any problems

that can only be efficiently resolved on

site, such as a cracked glass cooktop

or a filter replacement.

BORA SYSTEM

A complete system with

a functional guarantee

Everything from a single source

for more quality down to the

finest details

To ensure that BORA systems can be

seamlessly installed, we offer you parts

that can be used universally for optimum

performance down to the finest details.

We also see it as our duty to always think

ahead and constantly improve.

The best proof of BORA’s outstanding sense of

innovation and individualism is our specially

developed duct system featuring the BORA

Ecotube and the BORA 3box wall sleeve. Now, a

system is available that perfectly meets the high

standards required with regard to effectiveness,

ease of installation and flexibility.

If you use only BORA components in your BORA

system we grant you a 100% functional guarantee

of optimum performance, effectiveness and

quietness.

BORA Ecotube and BORA 3box an air duct system

for every challenge. Regardless of where you

install your air duct, on the kitchen floor or along

the cellar ceiling, the BORA Ecotube offers optimum

functionality and promises uncompromising

performance. Compared to conventional duct

systems, the BORA Ecotube boasts considerable

advantages, e.g. 20% less pressure loss thanks

to optimised flow and smooth surfaces, a unique

sealing concept and easy installation.

The BORA 3box wall sleeve rounds off the

extraction system perfectly as it boasts excellent

heat insulation properties, watertightness (even

against driving rain) and extremely low pressure

resistance. All of the materials used naturally

meet the requirements of fire protection class

V0 and material class B1.

BORA is a system provider and specialist.

We focus exclusively on cooktops and cooktop

extractor systems. We see our solutions as

systems and we think in terms of systems.

We start with the cooktop, which is perfectly

tailored to the cooktop extractor, then we

combine both elements to begin our planning

process. The ducts, motors, filters and even

the wall sleeves are all part of the same

application. We also deal with all of your cooking

and ventilation requirements, from the extractor

right down to the wall sleeve.

Our air purification boxes take health issues

into account and are part of our day-to-day

responsibility.

A perfect combination of

award-winning design,

high-quality materials and

innovative technology.

BORA Professional 2.0 functional

aesthetics, innovative effectiveness,

extra-deep dimensions, best performance

winner of the 2017 Red Dot Award.

The new Professional 2.0 is an evolved version of

the original BORA system.

We retained all of the tried-and-tested elements

such as the extra-deep cooktops, the knobs

and the efficiency of the actual system and

enhanced other aspects with a view to combining

simplicity, functionality and optimum performance

in a single, electrically controlled system.

The panel of judges of the Red Dot Award chose

BORA Professional 2.0 as the best of the best

systems in 2017 before it was even launched on

the market further proof of the innovativeness

and engineering ingenuity of the new system.

The heart of the Revolution 2.0 is the user

interface, which now allows the cooktops and

cooktop extractor to communicate with one

another. This enables us to achieve optimum

user friendliness and outstanding effectiveness.

Everything is made possible by an intelligent

control knob: from power control to the various

function programmes to the temperature

indicator in the knob itself.

BORA Professional is a complete system.

Cooktops, cooktop extractors, ducts, motors,

filters and wall sleeves are combined in this

electrically controlled system to create a

complete functional solution.

With their huge depth of 54 cm, the cooktops

are the deepest modular cooktops on the market,

offering an extremely large cooking area. As you

can see on pages 14/15, the surface induction

version with flexible cooking zones enables you

to place up to three pans on a cooktop at once.

The BORA Professional 2.0 system also offers

huge versatility and various composition options

from Tepan to wok cooktops. It all boils down to

how and with what you prefer cooking.

Thanks to our EC motors, BORA Professional 2.0

also cooks extremely quietly and efficiently.

To fine-tune the system even further and offer a

100% functional guarantee, BORA has introduced

its very own Ecotube duct system. Optimally

coordinated products, right down to the BORA

3box wall sleeve, create an overall system that

meets exacting requirements in terms of

effectiveness, ease of installation and flexibility.

What’s more, BORA Professional 2.0 is significantly

quieter than conventional extractor hoods. In fact,

its noise level is even drowned out when frying a

steak. The system also cuts an impressive figure

in terms of energy efficiency, with an A++ rating.

Customers can choose whether to install BORA

Professional 2.0 as a recirculation or exhaust air

system. The new Professional can essentially be

installed as a ‘plug and play’ compact system with

integrated fan and silencer. This opens up the

previously unavailable opportunity to install a

modular cooktop extractor system in floating

worktops. A world first. A revolution. With an

installation height of just 199 mm, the system

is practically made for floating worktops.

The system is remarkably easy to clean, and

the cleaning procedure itself has also been

further improved. The wide extraction opening

leads directly to the removable filter and the

tray with a built-in handle. All parts are

dishwasher safe so you can keep your system

permanently clean. Even the grease particle

capture rate has been further optimised to

guarantee that the system performs well in

the long term.

The cooktop extractor and cooktops offer

uncompromising quality. High-quality materials

and attention to detail ensure excellent

Various sizes and functions offer alternatives for

Different products for different users: the BORA

that has recently been revised and further

optimised. Thanks to the touch-operated round

slider, you can keep a clear eye on all cooking

zones and the round extractor and can operate

a large cooktop measuring 830 x 515 mm.

The cooking zones have also been further

enlarged to now offer 20 to 50% more cooking

even for small kitchens. Two large pots or pans

can sit behind one another on the BORA surface

induction cooktop.

Customers with even less kitchen space can

opt for the BORA Basic version measuring just

version, the cooktop still offers all the BORA

advantages, i.e. it is efficient and quiet just like

all of the other systems.

Versatility is ensured by the various different

models, including induction, Hyper and flexible

surface induction. We have the right product for

every customer, depending on their personal

requirements and wishes.

BORA Basic customers can not only choose

between flush and surface-mounted versions,

but can also opt for a brushed stainless steel

cooktop frame. This offers extra protection for

surface-mounted cooktops, particularly in smaller

kitchens where work space is restricted.

Also new is the All Black Edition of the air inlet

nozzle, now available as an accessory.

Exhaust air or recirculation once again, the

choice is yours. Storage space is often in great

demand, especially in smaller kitchens, and can

be further optimised by selecting a recirculation

system. You don’t have to forgo any wall units

because of an extractor hood, and BORA Basic

hardly takes up any space in the floor unit.

The air is filtered and cleaned by the activated

charcoal filter, then returned to the room

through an opening in the floor unit. Simply

and quietly.

The layout of the operating panels has

been designed to enable optimum use of

the cooktop space. For surface-mounted

systems, the stainless steel cooktop

frame not only offers suitable protection

but also perfectly showcases the cooktop.

Lots of storage space

The cooktop extractor provides

room for kitchen accessories

BORA Basic enables you to make the

most of the space in your kitchen. Thanks

to the design freedom offered by the

cooktop extractor, you can perfectly

adapt your kitchen to any floor plan

without losing valuable space to an

extractor hood, which you could better

use for wall units. You even retain most

of the space in the floor unit too. Storage

space is often in great demand in smaller

kitchens and can be optimised through

the air recirculation filter unit integrated

into BORA Basic systems. This makes

the need to truncate drawers to

accommodate air ducts a thing of

the past!

Simple cleaning

The removable parts are all

dishwasher safe

Like all BORA systems, BORA Basic

impresses with outstanding everyday

advantages. This is particularly evident

when it comes to its service-friendly

cleaning. All extractor components

that come into direct contact with

greasy cooking vapours, including the

multi-layered grease filter made of

stainless steel wire mesh, can be simply

detached without any need for tools and

quickly and easily cleaned in a dishwasher.

The flush design of the cooktops also

eliminates nooks or crannies in which

dirt could collect.

ADVANTAGES

The key

BORA advantages

These advantages are key traits of all BORA products from

Basic to Professional. BORA stands for outstanding quality

and premium materials. Based on innovative ideas, we provide

effective solutions that are carefully thought-out down to the

last detail. High-performance ventilation technology made by

BORA is perfect for anyone who appreciates streamlined,

minimalist design and trendsetting technology.

BORA MAGAZINE


Fresh air

Cooking while surrounded

by fresh air

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. It is therefore like cooking in the

fresh air.

Quiet operation

Significantly quieter than

conventional extractor hoods

Conventional extractor hoods blast out

around 70 decibels (A) directly at head

height. BORA, on the other hand, 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.

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,

including when it comes to cleaning and

maintenance. All movable parts can be

easily dismantled without any tools and

cleaned in the dishwasher.

Effectiveness

A 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 the 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

Setting the standard for

modern kitchen design

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... BORA sets the

standard for modern kitchen aesthetics.

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.

KLAUDIA MEINERT


An interview with Willi Bruckbauer and

Johann Lafer about good food, time

management and motivation.

Two men for whom the concept of sitting on their laurels is inconceivable.

Both have a certain restlessness about them. They are always on the lookout for

new challenges: the founder of BORA, whose cooktop extractors triggered a new

trend in the kitchen world, and the top chef, whose Michelin-star creations can be

found on all channels. At first glance, they appear very different. On closer

inspection, however, they actually have a great deal in common. They are both

driven by joie de vivre and passion, motivation and courage. They also share a

vision: “Cooking should be fun.”

Willi, Johann: It’s great to get you both together.

You’ve known each other for many years,

but I presume that your hectic workloads

and many projects give you little time to

meet up...

Willi: That’s unfortunately true, yes. And when

we do meet up, the time always flies by far too

quickly. It’s just like for everyone else. But there

are also many touchpoints where we meet in a

purely professional capacity. For example,

Johann cooked for us at the interiors trade fair

in Cologne and has created a recipe book for

and with BORA.

Johann: That was great fun. I devised all of the

recipes myself and was both a host and an active

participant in the photo shoot for the book at

the Stromburg. It was a crazy day. Believe me,

Willi, I’ve a great deal of experience when it

comes to shoots like these and am very much

used to hard work as a chef, but the photo

shoot was so fast-paced that I was ready to

collapse by the evening. Working with BORA

really is dynamic!

Willi: True. Things move at astonishing speed

with us. We also have to improvise at times. But

the end result makes it all worthwhile it: a book

in which the recipes beautifully show that you

can cook healthy and refined food on an everyday

basis. And that was our aim.

Am I correct in understanding that BORA

has published several cookbooks under the

motto ‘10|10’ with recipes based on the

simple principle of taking 10 minutes to

prepare and 10 minutes to cook?

Willi: Yes, we believed it was important to note that

not everyone can always cook haute cuisine in the

kitchen, the place where people all over the world

get together in the evening to enjoy a relaxing end

to their day. And they don’t have to be able to either.

Johann and other chefs, such as Andreas Senn,

therefore developed refined dishes for us that you

can easily make in just a short time without being

some sort of magician! Cooking should be fun.

People experience enough stress in their lives but

healthy eating is still hugely important.

BORA MAGAZINE


INTERVIEW

EXPERIENCE

We don’t need to mention that Johann Lafer

is passionate about cooking. But what about

you, Willi?

Willi: I love spending evenings in the kitchen with

my family. My favourite meal is steak and vegetables.

Done! I really enjoy cooking and particularly like

making down-to-earth meals with top-quality

ingredients. Of course, these always have to be

healthy too. I’m consistent in this. I like standing

at the cooktop and letting the raw meat sizzle away

in front of me while we chat about everything and

anything including how our days went, of course.

So you don’t only like cooking ‘for business’?

Willi: No, but I equally love cooking with my staff

and our distribution partners. It’s a dream come

true to experience such enjoyable times with

people who share my passion for BORA.

This is a win-win situation for me. We cook with

the staff at BORA as often as possible.

The 5,000 distributors worldwide, who regularly

visit us in Raubling for training sessions and

seminars, also hold a large number of cooking

events. I love it when I can attend them.

Johann: It’s also true, Willi, that if you’re

passionate about something, you love doing it.

Things that others might regard as work and

which can admittedly often be exhausting give

us a sense of joy and fulfilment. I think we’re

pretty similar in that regards. When it comes to

putting our heart and soul into things and

bringing about new ideas, we’re both insatiable

in the truest sense of the word.

You’ve got a huge amount going on at the

moment too, Johann: to mark your 60th

birthday we hope you don‘t mind us

mentioning that! you’ve fulfilled a great

dream and launched the Lafer Magazine,

all about your culinary world.

Johann: Despite not being a journalist or media

producer, I was heavily involved in the development

of the magazine right from day one. I was simply

brimming with ideas; when you get about as

much as I do, you have plenty to report on.

For example, my interview with the German

Austrian-born Johann Lafer

began his meteoric rise as a

top chef over 40 years ago.

And as exhausting as his job

can often be, he still clearly

loves it.

BORA MAGAZINE 49


EXPERIENCE

INTERVIEW

President Frank-Walter Steinmeier was particularly

interesting. It’s not every day that you get the

chance to look behind the culinary scenes of

government officials. It was naturally also a

great honour to conduct an interview with

Queen Silvia of Sweden. I felt almost ennobled.

Willi: Which you’re not though, Johann. You’re

known for being down to earth which is

something else we have in common. Perhaps it’s

partly something to do with our origins? I grew

up in the Bavarian town of Raubling, where

BORA’s head office is located today. Back then,

the region didn‘t have any Michelin-star chefs,

just simple and tasty food shaped by the Alpine

landscape around us. You come from Styria and

have told me all about your mother’s cooking

with a gleam in your eye on several occasions.

Johann: That’s what initially ignited my passion.

And cooking is something that will never go out

of fashion. Being a chef is a future-proof career.

But you have to acquire knowledge and learn to

offer quality, over and over again. And this was

sort of my vision with the Lafer Magazine: to take

people with me into the culinary world, which I’m

Johann Lafer and

Willi Bruckbauer know and

respect one another; they

also agree on their recipe for

success, i.e. pace, passion and

a constant search for new

avenues.

50

BORA MAGAZINE


so passionate about that I’m happy to share. I’d

say that you’re extremely passionate about what

you do too, Willi. Otherwise you’d struggle to cope

with a daily routine like yours.

Time management is an important factor

here. Johann, you travel the world looking

for the best meat in Uruguay and gaining

inspiration for your dishes throughout Asia.

You’re also on television. And Willi, exactly

ten years on from when you first founded

BORA, you’re now represented in 58 countries

worldwide. How do you cope with your

workload? How do you strike a work/life

balance?

Willi: I manage the fast pace through precisely

that a fast pace! I’m not just a businessman,

but also an avid road cyclist. I competed in many

cycling championships during my younger days,

and if I’d had what it took to be a great cyclist,

I’d have become a professional. I wasn’t quite

good enough, but at BORA we’ve been able to

attract the reigning three-times World Champion

Peter Sagan to our BORA hansgrohe team.

And that’s quite an achievement too! But in all

seriousness: I find the best way to switch off is

to hop on my bike on a nice day and pedal off.

Riding all out for hours in almost any weather.

In a group or on my own. That is my world.

Even the greatest stress rolls off my shoulders.

Johann: It’s all about peace and quiet for me too.

Heading up the Reiteralm in the Styrian village of

Schladming on a clear winter’s day and gazing

out at the snow-covered landscape from an altitude

of 1,800 metres is great for clearing the head. You

can suddenly see what really matters in life.

What else is important for professional

success?

Willi: You have to listen, give things consideration

and think ahead. When I talk to people, I always

try to put myself in their shoes. For example, to

try and understand what they want from a kitchen

and how we can further optimise what we do.

Simply put, I want to make life in the kitchen

more enjoyable for people. The notion of sitting

on my laurels is inconceivable for me.

Johann: For me, it’s also extremely important to

think about the chefs of the future. I’m actively

committed to this. For example, with the Next

Chef Award, where we want to find the next

great chef. There are so many talented people out

there! Even non-professionals are now cooking

to an extremely high standard. The dishes that

I’ve been presented by amateur chefs could often

have been served in top restaurants.

Willi: We hope that our various commitments

will promote and positively influence the topic of

food. After all, we have you as a culinary

specialist. We’re the professionals when it comes

to the best possible kitchen appliances. And

we’ve made a very simple observation, including

in private kitchens: anyone who has ever seen

BORA in action says “I totally get it. It really

works.” And these are the best moments of all

for me when we win someone over with our

developments, whether a professional or an

amateur chef.

Those are lucid words. Thanks very much for

speaking to us. We hope you continue to find

lots of energy for your new projects and look

forward to hearing about them.

BORA MAGAZINE


It’s the place where the family gets together.

Where they chat and discuss things. Where

they take important decisions. For the Lietke

family, the kitchen is the centre of their

home. It combines the traditional purpose of

being a place for cooking, eating and drinking

with that of being a lively communication

hub. During the design stage, it was therefore

important to Nicole and Bernd Lietke for the

kitchen to be integrated into the living room

with as few barriers to access and visibility

as possible. And their wish was consistently

implemented.

The Lietkes moved from Ulm to Berlin with their

children Mia and Jonas in 2016 and awoke the

quaint 1936 villa that is their new home from a

long slumber. “The building hadn’t been renovated

for over 50 years and had to be totally refurbished

from scratch”, Bernd tells us. “We tried to

retain as much of its original substance as

possible though and therefore its individual

style and charm.” The result is a cosy, modern

house with plenty of natural light and an overt

sense of purism. Despite this, its history still

shines through.

The kitchen-cum-living room in the family’s

beautiful home is like the command bridge on a

ship. “The fact that our kitchen was the first

thing we chose shows just how important it is to

us”, admits Nicole. “During the renovations, we

essentially planned and designed the house

around the kitchen.”

Anyone visiting the family of four for the first time

will instantly notice a positive and relaxed general

atmosphere. A harmony that is not staged, but

actively experienced on a daily basis. “Eating

meals together is important for family cohesion”,

says Nicole. “We uphold this tradition whenever

possible.” The distribution of roles is also clear.

Above: Mia, 10, is the youngest

member of the family. She

renovations, openings

When at home, Bernd, who has a successful

career as a manager, happily does as he’s told by

“the boss”, as Nicole is referred to by the rest of

the family. Jonas, who is already an ambitious

and skilled amateur chef at the tender age of 13,

is allowed to assist her with the cooking. As firm

family favourites, Italian dishes are often on the

menu. “We make classic, homely German meals

like Spätzle, Schnitzel and Maultaschen too

though”, says Nicole.

The family already has a large circle of friends in

Berlin and often plays host to guests in the

evenings. “We keep everything very casual and

relaxed”, says Bernd. “We also like to spend time

with our guests in the kitchen before we eat.”

While the Lietkes cook, their guests enjoy a glass

of wine or champagne without having to desert

chef Nicole.This may also be due to the kitchen

being so attractive. After all, it is equipped with a

BORA Basic extraction system.

“Fitting a BORA system

in the kitchen gave us maximum

“We chose this as it offered us maximum design

freedom”, says Bernd. “If we’d used a conventional

extractor hood, we wouldn‘t have been able to

create the central kitchen island with bar stools,

pendant lights and ample headroom.”

Another advantage, which is particularly important

due to the flowing transition between the kitchen

and the living room, is the efficiency of the BORA

system. “Even when we’re doing lots of cooking,

the kitchen area remains completely odour free”,

says Bernd. “This makes it a pleasant place to

be.” It also means that guests do not have to

return home with the unwelcome souvenir of

various kitchen odours on their clothes.

“Another important criterion when we chose

58

BORA MAGAZINE


BORA was how quietly the extractor operates”,

says Bernd. “For example, you can easily listen to

music while cooking. This is a huge advantage.”

His wife Nicole also loves BORA Basic’s practical

qualities. “The individual components are

fantastically easy to clean in the dishwasher”, she

enthuses. “That’s convenient and saves time.”

Many of the family’s guests have also become

BORA fans too. “Almost everyone instantly

notices the cooktop with its downdraft extractor”,

says Bernd. “A few people have already heard

and read about the system, but to see it in action

first hand is really something else. People are

particularly impressed by its design and aesthetics.”

But there are many other wonderful places in the

Lietke’s home too. For example, the comfy

leather sofa, which is another family hub, or the

armchair by the fireplace, a great place to relax.

“And to read”, says Nicole a hobby that the

whole family is passionate about. But while the

parents like real books with a solid feel, the

children prefer their iPads or smartphones.

A perfectly normal, modern family. But a

particularly amiable one!

CYCLING

EXPERIENCE

The stone that lay at Peter Sagan’s feet at the

Roubaix Velodrome must have been a weight

off the mind of the Slovak world champion

from the BORA hansgrohe team. And not

just because the trophy meant he had won

the first cycling monument for his team.

The victory in the ParisRoubaix classic was

also an important step towards a successful

season. 2018 should be a special year for

BORA hansgrohe and set the course for

the years to come.

Because despite great success, the end of the

2017 season did not sit well with the BORA

hansgrohe team. The team had, indeed, won

stages in all the major tours, with 33 professional

wins in total in the palmarès. This was also

accompanied by the world champion rainbow

jersey for Peter Sagan as well as the national

titles in Germany, Austria and Slovakia. But the

unjustified disqualification of Peter Sagan after

the fourth stage of the Tour de France and Rafal

Majka‘s abandonment of the race five days later

shattered all their dreams for the Tour and

diminished the record.

But that‘s history. It‘s time to move on to Paris

Roubaix. The Hell of the North classic showed

early on in the year that the team members

are well attuned to each other and the team is

fully operational. The selection of BORA

hansgrohe was another great leap forward this

season. “Team spirit will play a crucial role in the

first major challenges,” sporting director Enrico

Poitschke had already prophesied at the start of

the season. And so his riders worked tirelessly in

the peloton. Led by Marcus Burghardt, they held

the field together and jointly laid the groundwork

for Peter Sagan. Later on, he took responsibility,

demonstrated his unique leadership qualities

and decided the outcome of the race at the

Roubaix Velodrome in favour of his team.

“Peter is excellent at motivating his squad,” said

Ralph Denk. The team manager knows why his

star is so valuable. “Not only do the riders look

up to him, he also guides and motivates them,

winningly.” The importance of this is shown on

days like those in Roubaix. Because even with

their eyes set on the Tour de France, which is

the absolute highlight of the season, the team

continues to push forward.

Sagan is, indeed, the celebrity star of the

WorldTour. Naturally, his job is not only to win

stages, but also to win the sprint classification

in France for the sixth time in his career. But in

addition to the green jersey, BORA hansgrohe

also wanted a good overall placement.

To achieve that, Rafal Majka had to be in the

top 5. And a stage win was also on the wish list

of team manager Ralph Denk. The goals were

ambitious, but his team delivered. Not everything

went exactly according to plan, but there were

some special bonuses. For the domestiques

around Marcus Burghardt, the ambitious goal

meant hard work not only did they have to

look after two captains in France, after a rule

change this year, the teams also had only eight

riders on board.

Peter Sagan had already won the second stage

at La Roche-sur-Yon and got the yellow jersey as

the overall leader. A historical moment for the

team from Raubling, which also brought great

excitement to BORA headquarters. As part of

a night-time promotion, a video greeting was

prepared for the team in France in which Willi

Bruckbauer and the staff are shown in yellow

shirts with the hashtag #proudinyellow. Sagan

took the green jersey with his second daily win

on the section from Lorient to Quimper and also

set a new record: over 90 days wearing the

green jersey, a feat that has not been

accomplished by any rider before him.

Nevertheless, this year’s victory in the sprint

classification demanded some particularly hard

work from Sagan, and Peter proved he has a

great fighter’s heart. After falling during the

descent at the 17th stage in the Pyrenees, he

fought his way through extensive abrasions and

heavy bruising throughout the third week to

Paris. After a massive crash on the 9th stage,

Rafal Majka also had a very rough time getting

going again. Especially in the Pyrenees, he

showed grit and, as 19th in the overall ranking,

rode to third place in the mountain classification.

The goals the team set itself might have been

a bit too modest, and this was already evident

early on in the season.

At the Giro d‘Italia, Irishman Sam bennett got

three stage wins. However, one of his greatest

achievements of the race, and above all

a demonstration of absolute fighting spirit, was

at the fourth stage from Catania to Caltagirone.

Bennett finished only in 44th place. But the

sprinter had kept up with the mountain

specialists until shortly before the end despite

the long and arduous final climb to the mountain

finish and made the race exciting. Three days

later, he rewarded himself with the first of three

stage wins on the Giro. The young Austrian,

Patrick Konrad, and Davide Formolo from Italy

got into the top 10 of the overall rankings at the

Giro d’Italia. Pascal Ackermann fooled the

German sprinting elite at the national

championships and the young German Emanuel

Buchmann grabbed everybody’s attention at the

Critérium du Dauphiné. Placed 15th in last year’s

Tour de France, he took sixth place at the main

rehearsal for the „Grande Boucle“, the big loop

as the race is affectionately known in France,

and showed that he can hold his own with the

best mountain riders.

Nevertheless, Buchmann was not at the start for

the Tour de France. Because BORA hansgrohe

is also about carefully developing young riders.

Coaches, managers and athletes find the space

they need to do their own thing in the shadow

of the world champion Peter Sagan. And so the

25-year-old from Ravensburg will take the lead

role at the Vuelta and lead the BORA

hansgrohe team. “Emanuel has made a great

leap forward and we are fully motivated to take

the next step with him,” Ralph Denk explained.

In any case, Emanuel Buchmann prefers to ride

when it is warm so the Tour of Spain will be

perfect for his introduction as a team captain.

In the long term, the next step will also be for the

whole team. Short-term successes aside, Denk

and his team also have great plans for the

distant future. Specifically, Ralph Denk wants

to one day win the Tour de France as the team

manager. He has already been world champion,

and has won the most important

one-day classic Paris-Roubaix. Now they have set

their sights on the future. “It would be a dream

come true to ride on the Champs-Élysées with

the number one vehicle.” The cornerstone has at

least been laid.

TREND REPORT

EXPERIENCE

FROM THE

KITCHENS OF OLD

to the kitchens

of today

You could almost say that the modern kitchen is taking a step

backwards into the pre-modern era. Back to days gone by when

the kitchen was the centre of the home. Back to its roots?

To some extent but completely differently of course!

Photo: werkhaus Küchenideen

Everyday life used to play out in what was known

as the kitchen-cum-living room. This was not just

a place where people cooked and ate, but also

where women sewed, knitted and crocheted,

men read the newspaper and children did their

homework. After all, at least in the autumn/winter

months, the kitchen-cum-living room was often

the only room that was lovely and warm.

My grandparents had this kind of large, cosy

kitchen. I can still remember wonderful Sundays

spent watching and helping out as our grandma

cooked. The aroma of bone-marrow and dumpling

soup, Palatinate roast beef with sauerkraut and

‘Hoorische Knepp’ dumplings would fill the

room and the entire apartment. There was no

extractor hood to interfere with the mouth-watering

odours. With the boom of the economic miracle

though, the built-in kitchen came into fashion.

This was a separate, purely functional room in

which housewives could fully focus on preparing

meals, while awkwardly making their way around

wall units, hot plates and extractor hoods.

Once ready, the meals were passed through a

serving hatch into the dining room. I experienced

this 1960s architecture and interior design

first-hand in my parents’ house. This is how

successful people lived at the time. After eating,

everyone would retire to the sofa in the

separate living room a place for smoking

and for male guests to drink cognac and the

like from huge glasses while the females

sipped on eggnog.

EXPERIENCE

TREND REPORT

In the decades that followed, the functional

boundaries between kitchens, dining rooms and

living rooms gradually broke down again. Eating

and drinking really came into its own in Germany.

Amateur chefs cooking at home treated their

guests to dishes that would not have been out of

place in a Michelin-star restaurant. The kitchen

became a creative workshop as well as a

showpiece visible from the dining area.

Property developers and builders have paid heed

to the change in people’s attitudes towards life

and home living with new architectural styles and

room layouts. This particularly applies in urban

and affluent regions, especially with regard to the

ever-more prevalent single and double-income,

no-kids apartments, which have loft-like floor

plans and are loved by their inhabitants.

Here, the bedroom is no longer just a place to

sleep at night; with a desk in the corner, a cosy

reading area and/or a comfy sofa bed, it is also

used during the day. The bathroom has developed

from a tiled washroom into an oasis of

well-being. Trend researchers even refer to the

bathroom as the new kitchen. Whereas the

kitchen is the new car, as we already know.

Similarly to dining rooms, spectacular living

rooms have lost their purpose. Nowadays, they

largely function as an intimate place for the

family to read, listen to music or watch TV. And

the large dining table is no longer only used for

meals; kids do their homework on it and parents

use it as a temporary desk for working on their

PC, smartphone or tablet. And when guests

come to visit, the entire evening is spent on the

comfortable chairs at the long table. The kitchencum-living

room of yesteryear has essentially

become an all-purpose kitchen.

This is not least thanks to BORA’s cooktop

extractor systems, which are gradually banishing

the bulky, annoying monstrosities known as

extractor hoods from houses and apartments.

Instead, active systems at the hob itself suction

vapours into the filter below the cooktop

almost invisibly. The ceiling above the cooktop

remains free for strategically placed or simply

attractive lighting, and pictures can hang over

wall-fitted stoves instead of a hood. Architects

and designers love the freedom they are given by

the flexible layouts and the new possibilities. So

too do the inhabitants. Otherwise, this trend of

open-plan living would never have taken off.

With its spectacular new tasting room,

the tradition-steeped Hensel Winery in

Bad Dürkheim is causing quite a stir.

The new showroom opened in July 2017

and architecture fans are already making

the pilgrimage to visit the building, which

presents the central forum of a winery in

a radically different way.

The new showroom seems to float on air. Two

concrete steps provide access to the building,

but the support elements are concealed. What

perfect architecture for wines with names like

‘Aufwind’ (‘Upwind’), ‘Ikarus’ (‘Icarus’) and

‘Höhenflug’ (‘High-altitude flight’)! The connection

to weightlessness and flying is a trademark of

the Hensel Winery. After all, it is located right by

the Bad Dürkheim recreational airport.

“I wanted the new wine shop to go with the

modern overall image”, says Thomas Hensel,

who took over the 24-hectare vineyard in Bad

Dürkheim from his father in 2010 and has also

attracted attention with purist bottle labels.

“The old tasting room was also of high quality,

but a little drab inside”, Thomas Hensel explains.

“The little light that shone through the crown

glass windows was almost completely swallowed

up by the dark oak furnishings.” The new

Openness as a basic

principle: the showroom

kitchen and surrounding

terrace merge into each

other. Half of the glass

frontage can be opened.

showroom also features oak, but in this case a

reddish-brown thermal oak with a finely textured

finish is used to clad the surrounding terrace.

The wood is heat treated to make it more robust.

It is a very rare material as few producers

anywhere in the world are able to thermally

modify oak.

This is just one of the many fascinating details of

this masterpiece by the architect Lars Nicklas,

with whom Thomas Hensel already worked back

in 2011 to renovate the winery’s cellar. Lars

Nicklas does not specialise in buildings for the

wine sector. He had to start by getting a feel for

this world. He joined Thomas Hensel on visits to

multiple wineries with new-builds in order to obtain

insights into how several practical requirements

were dealt with. The two men then worked

together to develop a building that was specifically

and uniquely tailored to the Hensel Winery.

The new-build is all about transparency.

A nine-metre-wide, floor-to-ceiling glazed

frontage virtually brings the vines into the interior.

ARCHITECTURE

Half of this frontage can also be opened. “I wanted

to make the showroom clearly visible from the

outside. Everyone can see inside and everyone

can step inside”, says Thomas Hensel. “This

alleviates any fears visitors may have about

entering. Buying wine is a matter of trust.

And the best way to gain people’s trust is through

openness.” As well as through clarity.

“We aim to express the clarity of our wine and

the viticulture process through our winery’s

architecture”, says the 46-year-old owner. The

materials play a role in this. The pavilion walls

are simply rendered, the floor is made of ceramic

tiles and the ceiling is clad in cement-bonded

wood-wool insulation panels. Everything is

very clean and minimalist. The building structure,

design and contents are in perfect harmony,

with a flowing transition between the exterior

and the interior.

In recent years, over 100 new wine shops have

been established in Rhineland-Palatinate. The

showroom at the Hensel Winery is definitely one

of the most impressive. “Viticulture and

architecture have always belonged together”,

explains Thomas Hensel. “You just have to think

about the magnificent châteaus in the Bordelais

region, which still shape the image of Bordeaux

wines today.”

“I wanted the new wine

shop to go with the

modern overall image.”

translate as ‘Upwind’, ‘Icarus’

What the Hensel Winery has in common with

BORA is that its owner and chief winemaker

Thomas Hensel also endeavours to veer off the

beaten track, rethink processes and pursue

innovative directions. In doing this, top quality

is naturally a constant.

It is therefore no surprise that the excellent wines

are also served on the BORA Revolution Tour.

BORA MAGAZINE


YACHTS

EXPERIENCE

Thanks to a partnership with the Italian luxury

yacht manufacturer Benetti, you can now

even set sail with BORA! Established in 1873,

the tradition-steeped company builds

avant-garde super yachts with lengths of up

to 70 metres for customers all over the world

at its shipyards in Livorno and Viareggio and

uses BORA systems for its galley kitchens.

When furnishing exclusive yachts, the highest

of design standards are expected. Not just the

living area, but also the kitchen has to meet

the overall aesthetic requirements of a

premium-class yacht.

It is therefore no surprise that the Benetti

designers got in touch with BORA. After all, the

furnishing standards for their yachts are congruent

with those that BORA sets for itself: high class is

a must! Pure stainless steel, puristic glass ceramic

and minimalist design language throughout

naturally form the visually compelling basis for

all BORA products.

The functionality of galleys is also particularly

important. They are subjected to extreme levels

of strain and have to be fully usable even on the

high seas. This is where the advantages of BORA

really come into their own.

Above: Benetti yachts are

characterised by premium

aesthetics and maximum

comfort. The company

regards top motorisation

performance as a matter

of course.

Left: The culinary logistics

on board pose specific

challenges. Outdoor dining

areas are part of yacht life.

The kitchen has to be as

close to them as possible.

Right: BORA’s highly effective

cooktop extractor ensures

that guests on board the

high-end yacht can fully

enjoy the sea air without

being bothered by any

kitchen odours.

BORA MAGAZINE 89


EXPERIENCE

YACHTS

BORA eliminates the need

for hazardous superstructures

above galley cooktops.

Highly effective extraction systems are essential

on luxury yachts as annoying odours need to be

avoided under all circumstances. However, the

powerful air circulation on board means that

conventional extractor hoods quickly hit their

performance limits. Due to the large distance

between the cooktop and extractor, it is not

always possible to completely avoid air turbulence.

Furthermore, the corners and sharp edges on

head-height extraction systems pose a risk of

injury to chefs on rough seas. BORA, on the

other hand, eliminates the need for hazardous

and annoying superstructures above galley

cooktops. The kitchen is fully visible and chefs

can communicate with one another more easily

because nothing impairs their field of view. As an

added bonus, the BORA systems are also far

lighter than extractor hoods.

Another reason to use BORA in maritime

environments is that the cooktop extractor

systems are extremely simple to clean. The three

movable parts can be easily dismantled without

any tools and cleaned in the dishwasher.

To complete the list of BORA qualities: the

systems operate using extremely quiet motors,

creating less background noise than a frying steak.

This minimises noise pollution for the guests on

board.

Incidentally, plenty of yacht owners are also

passionate amateur chefs and occasionally

release the boat’s chefs from their duties to take

to the stove themselves. In doing so, they too will

experience and appreciate BORA’s qualities and

kitchen aesthetics. Even on the high seas, BORA

offers impressive new options for kitchen design.

Anything is possible.

BORA and Benetti a strong team. Anchors

aweigh for a partnership with great potential

for the future!

JAKOB SINN

Drummer of the rock

band Revolverheld

VOLKER RENNER,

PEOPLE PICTURE/

NORA GRETHMANN

Text

KLAUDIA MEINERT

Jakob Sinn is the drummer of the rock band

Revolverheld. The thoroughbred musician was

just ten years old when he first started to

learn the drums at the classic place of

music school. Back then, no-one could have

foreseen that he would later become a

member of one of Germany’s most successful

bands. In his spare time, Jakob loves cooking,

preferably in his apartment in Hamburg.

He particularly enjoys doing so with BORA.

Time for an interview.

Jakob, you are Revolverheld’s drummer.

We’re intrigued to know if there are any

parallels between cooking and concerts?

Yes, definitely! Both making music and cooking

require a huge amount of creativity. I love starting

to cook things without any real plan, combining

ingredients at will and then trying my own creations

once I’m done. The same applies to music. If all

you do is follow what’s written on the music

without adding your own ideas, you’ll ultimately

just play songs without any unique character.

How do you keep yourselves fit when

you’re on tour?

Healthy eating is important to us. In the past, we

often used to just eat potato salad and sausages.

Now, we’re lucky enough to take our own kitchen

team on tour with us. We tend to start the day

with a fresh smoothie, lunch comprises plenty of

salad or pasta and dinner usually involves a fish

dish or lean meat. We’re also careful to ensure that

meals are made from organic, regional products.

What do you tend to eat between concerts?

I’m a huge fan of Asian food. It’s extremely varied

although that’s something people here often

might not realise. Many of the dishes that you get

in restaurants here are nothing like the originals.

Tell us a little about what you do in your

spare time. Do you still play the drums at

home or only in the studio?

I find cooking a great way to relax. When I’m at

home, I’m often happy to swap my drumsticks for

spoons, which my neighbours thank me for too...

In addition to music and cooking, I’m extremely

passionate about photography. I’m also a huge

fan of the Hamburg football team HSV, although

that’s not been much fun in recent years.

Nevertheless, I’m still a regular at the Volkspark

stadium when we’re not on the road.

Your new album comes out on 13 April and is

called ‘Zimmer mit Blick’ (‘A room with a

view’). That brings us to another question:

which is your favourite room at home?

That’s a good question. As we spend a lot of time

on the road, I simply enjoy being at home

regardless of which room I’m in. But as my living

and dining areas are essentially one room, that’s

where I spend most time.

Do you have to be in a certain place

to be creative?

No, definitely not. Most of my inspiration comes

to me when I’m on the road. I love travelling,

getting new perspectives on things and

experiencing new ways of life. This not only

applies to music, but also to photography and,

of course, to eating and cooking. Despite this,

it’s extremely important for me to have

somewhere to relax. That’s part of any creative

process for me too.

You set high standards for your new kitchen.

Why did you choose BORA?

This is another point where there are parallels to

music. To optimally implement my ideas and

truly focus on what really matters, I need the

right equipment in all areas. When I moved home

a few months ago, I did a fair bit of research into

kitchens and was impressed with the BORA

products from moment I saw them. I’m a huge

fan now.

What’s your favourite thing to cook?

One of the places that my last major trip took me

was Myanmar, where I also attended a cookery

course. Since then, I’ve been cooking Burmese

curry for both myself and my friends. I also

regularly enjoy cooking Bolognese, which a good

friend from Italy gave me the recipe for a few

years ago. That can simmer on the stove for a

good three or four hours though.

As a drummer, do you listen to music

while cooking?

Yes, definitely: everything from the Beatles or

Miles Davis to electronic music.

But you don’t sing while cooking though?

Only if no-one is listening!

Do you ever get inspiration while cooking?

For me, all creative activities go together somehow

and inspire each other. As such, cooking definitely

has an influence on my music. I don’t have

specific ideas while cooking though.

What culinary temptation is simply

irresistible for you?

I always love a good pho, a type of Vietnamese

noodle soup! That’s something that I could quite

happily eat all day.

The BORA Revolution Tour

shows guests the skyline

from a new perspective

while top culinary

professionals such as

BORA Cooking Chef Luigi

Cassago treat them to a

3-course meal. The cube

has a particularly romantic

feel in the evening.

BORA’s success is based on questioning

‘normal’ perspectives. The company gives

itself the freedom to transform dreams into

reality whether with technology that makes

monstrous extractor hoods unnecessary

when cooking or through the commitment

of top road cyclist Peter Sagan to the BORA

hansgrohe team. The Revolution Tour also

enables BORA to fulfil the eternal desire

to stand out from the crowd. In a cube,

hovering 30 metres above the ground,

guests are offered haute cuisine in the

truest sense of the word.

The moment that the cube lifts off the ground is

always very special for Rudi Hager. The BORA

event manager is a constant companion of the

BORA Revolution Tour, and is on site in all of the

European cities visited by ‘BORA in the air’.

“Every event involves a huge amount of logistics”,

says Rudi Hager. “With its trailer, the truck on

which the cube is transported is 19 metres long

and weighs 40 tonnes.” As such, several things

have to be carefully checked in advance: Can

the ground, road surface and bridges bear this

huge weight? Will the truck get round all the

bends? Are there things such as street lights

that might get in the way of lifting the cube?

The responsibility that rests on Rudi Hager’s

shoulders is as great as the promotional event is

spectacular. The show container holds 18 guests

and two BORA employees. The hoist cable and

four steel chains from which the container is

suspended have to bear the weight of these

people plus the tare weight of 11.8 tonnes. As a

result, a safety official who goes on tour with the

team inspects every last centimetre of the cable,

chains and all load-bearing parts prior to each event.

Safety comes first. This also applies to the crane,

explains Rudi Hager. “This often makes it far

from easy to find a suitable crane near the event

location.” Despite all the meticulous checks,

no-one is ever allowed to be in the cube when it

is first hoisted into the air at each new site.

When the guests do then step on board this fully

air-conditioned mini spaceship, however, they

experience an event in a class of its own.

BORA chef Armin Auer creates culinary surprises

for the guests in the show kitchen, in which all

three BORA systems are integrated. He is often

Once high in the air, guests can learn about the

advantages of the BORA system both in theory

and in practice. There could be no more

impressive proof that kitchens quite literally have

no bounds with BORA.

“The basic idea for this highly acclaimed marketing

tool came from BORA founder Willi Bruckbauer”,

explains Rudi Hager. “He wanted to design the

cycling team’s catering vehicle as transparently

as possible as he felt it was important for people

to be able to see what happens inside.”

And since nothing is unthinkable according to

BORA’s company policy, the concept soon

developed into the idea of a floating bistro, which

Exhaust system

Suitable for all BORA cooktop extractor systems

Recirculation system

Suitable for all BORA cooktop extractor systems

The advantage of exhaust air

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.

The advantage of recirculation

The BORA recirculation system is the alternative solution to exhaust-air

variants. The fan directs the cooking vapours into the specially developed

ULB1, ULB3 or BAKFS (Basic only) 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.

Cooking in recirculation mode

Humidity when cooking in recirculation mode

Putting the recirculation mode to the test

Extensive internal tests have proven that, subject to proper planning and

installation, there is no relevant increase in humidity inside the adjacent

kitchen units when operating BORA cooktop extractors in recirculation mode.

This means that there is no risk of normal cooking sessions causing moisture

damage to kitchen units or even mould formation. If the indoor environment

is kept within the limits of what feels comfortable, the critical level of 80 %

rel. humidity for such damage will not be exceeded at any point.

BORA cooktop extractors and recirculation systems are optimally tailored to

one another. The cooktop extractor has an automatic after-run function to

ensure not only sufficient air exchange but also the optimum performance

and service life of the recirculating filter.
