Introducing BORA at The Main Company

BORA – enjoy new freedom in the kitchen 

From the Bavarian town of Raubling, BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH is revolutionising the design and function of kitchens with their effective cooktop extractor systems BORA Professional, BORA Classic, BORA X Pure, BORA Pure and BORA Basic. The vision of “the end of the extractor hood” is what makes the founder Willi Bruckbauer an absolute pioneer. 

The BORA principle is applied physics and no magic: Vapours and odours are suctioned away precisely where they arise – directly at the cooktop, straight from pots, roasters, pans or grills. BORA uses a cross flow which is greater than the rising speed of the cooking vapours – both simple and effective. 

BORA stands for the highest quality standards for its products and services. The fact that the production sites are based in Germany and Austria ensures that these commitments are fulfilled. Only high-quality materials such as stainless steel and glass are used. BORA product lines are globally sold only by trained specialist suppliers to ensure first-class service. 

All BORA cooktop extractors are making it possible for you to enjoy new freedom in the kitchen. The perfect combination of a highly effective cooktop extractor and a powerful cooktop draws attention with attractive aesthetics without compromising the clear view. BORA is the perfect solution for every room. The cooktops can be selected according to individual cooking preferences. Be it ceran, induction, surface induction, gas or tepan. 

The success of the company and its products is also reflected by the numerous awards and acknowledgements such as the “365 Orte im Land der Ideen”, the German Entrepreneur Award, the red dot award, the Plus X Award, the German Design Award, iF Design Award, the Iconic Award as well as the German Brand Award of the Good Design Award Chicago Athenaeum.

BORA Professional:  The best of the best – a cooktop extractor that revolutionises the kitchen

BORA Professional Hob

Extra-deep cooktops, the control knob, high efficiency and functionality united in one electrically controlled system: That’s the BORA Professional. 

The panel of judges of the Red Dot Award chose BORA Professional as the best of the best systems in 2017 before it was even launched on the market – The pièce de résistance of Revolution 2.0 is its user interface; the cooktops and cooktop extractor now communicate with each other and the new extractor cover flap opens and closes automatically. 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 oversized depth of 54 cm, the cooktops are the deepest modular cooktops on the market, offering an extremely large cooking area. The BORA Professional 2.0 system also offers great versatility and various composition options – from surface induction to Tepan and gas through to wok cooktops. The completely redesigned Tepan stainless steel grill offers top performance, two large grilling zones and unique, precise temperature controls. The required temperature can be set directly and is accurately displayed and maintained. Rapid heating to 250°C in under five minutes saves time and energy. Another newcomer to the range is the gas cooktop with sunken burners. Thanks to the special design, even when the cooktop extractor is working on full power, the flame is barely affected guaranteeing greater efficiency and shorter cooking times.

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.

Highlight of the range is the totally black All Black edition of Professional.

BORA Classic: Unlimited freedom – maximum flexibility in the kitchen

BORA Classic Hob

Maximum flexibility and individuality for a unique cooking experience at home – that was the requirement when BORA Classic was developed. The result is an unprecedented cooktop extractor system, unrivalled and well thought-out down to the very last detail. The new, innovative sControl+ operating panel in its smooth hollow enables precise, intuitive operation. Now all functions are literally at the user’s fingertips. At the same time, the controls are practically invisible when on standby mode and thanks to their central position, there is maximum space on the cooktop. But that’s not all: you can order cooktops and extractor systems individually and combine them to suit your needs. Combinations with one, three or more cooktops are also a possibility.

Two induction cooktops for maximum cooking area, the HiLight roaster cooktop that can be linked to form an XXL roaster zone or the Tepan stainless steel grill that heats up to 250 degrees in only 5 minutes. BORA Classic can always be adapted to your personal cooking requirements. 

The pièce de résistance of the BORA Classic is of course the BORA cooktop extractor, which has once again been refined and improved. With a modern fan and optimum airflow, the cooktop extractor in the BORA Classic is exceptionally quiet. 

Since the beginning, BORA has been synonymous with modern, innovative product design. With BORA Classic, special attention has been paid to the appearance. The puristic, minimalist look blends in perfectly with its surroundings.

BORA Pure: A class of its own – a trademark of your kitchen

BORA Pure downdraft Hob

The name says it all. BORA Pure stands for puristic, simple, minimalist design. It blends in perfectly and discreetly with its surroundings and is a true design highlight for the kitchen. It can be customised. For example, you can select the colour of the air inlet nozzle according to your colour preferences. BORA Pure is supplied by default with a black inlet nozzle. If you decide to bring a whole new world of colour to your kitchen, you can choose from five additionally available tones “greige”, “orange”, “red”, “jade green” or “blue”. 

BORA Pure won’t just win you over with its appearance, but with its functionality too. For example, the power level of the cooktop extractor automatically adjusts to current cooking conditions. Thanks to the optimum airflow and extremely quiet fan, the cooktop extractor works especially silently. What’s more, the system is available as an exhaust air or recirculation model, which will enthuse you with its low appliance height of under 20 centimetres. This leaves you maximum storage space in the floor unit. Even the replacement of the activated charcoal filter which effectively neutralises odours in recirculation mode has been well thought-out: it can be easily removed from the top through the inlet opening. 

The system is operated using the newly developed sControl operating panel, which will entice you with its intuitive vertical touch slider. All important functions are now at the user’s fingertips. And thanks to the clever, central positioning of the operating panel, which is virtually invisible in standby mode, no space is wasted on the cooktop. This means that you always have room for four large pots measuring up to 24 centimetres at any given time. It goes without saying that these are heated with the latest induction technology.

  • Minimalist design
  • Automatic extractor control
  • Simple cleaning
  • Extremely easy filter change
  • Intuitive sControl operating panel

BORA Basic: A cooktop and extractor rolled into one – suitable for any kitchen.

BORA Basic Hob

BORA Basic Hyper is the innovative unit comprising a high-performance cooktop and an effective extractor. The key features include the Hyper cooking zone with radiant heating elements that enable the performance to be boosted by up to 50 percent when using the power setting. Thanks to the central operating panel and optimum arrangement of the cooking zones, users can cook with up to 4 pots or pans with diameters of up to 24 centimetres at the same time. The system also offers the practical functions of a heat retention setting, which keeps the temperature at a constant level of around 75°C, and a childproofing feature, which prevents the cooktop from being switched on accidentally or without permission. 

The selected cooking zone is also switched off automatically once a preset time has elapsed. BORA Basic Hyper provides far more space in the kitchen. The low height of less than 200 millimetres and integrated recirculation filter unit guarantee maximum storage space for pots, pans and other kitchen utensils in the base cupboard. Even in kitchen units with a depth of 60 centimetres, no drawers need to be shortened in recirculation mode. Its compact measurements enable the system to fit in to even the smallest of kitchens and as there is no extractor hood there is also room for additional wall units. The BORA Basic Hyper cooktop extractor system is available as an exhaust air or recirculation solution. 

BORA Basic Hyper supports the trend of the kitchen increasingly becoming a social space by offering an extremely quiet extractor, even at high power levels. This is made possible by the optimum airflow and the use of a twin fan system. A further plus point is how easy the appliance is to clean. All parts that come into contact with cooking vapours can be simply removed through the easily accessible air inlet opening and cleaned in the dishwasher, where they take up very little space. The stainless steel grease filter is completely dishwasher safe and retains its original appearance and stability even when washed regularly. BORA Basic Hyper provides clear proof of just how convenient and aesthetically appealing optimum functionality can be.
