Edge extraction conceals technical-looking metal grease filters behind decorative screens. And now, Miele is going one step further, introducing new cooker hoods with multi-zone edge extraction. These hoods set standards in terms of aesthetics as multiple individual panels serve as decorative elements. To ensure a design that matches kitchen furniture, you have a choice of panels in stainless steel or glass.
Compared with a single screen used with conventional edge-extraction range hoods, multiple individual panels offer considerable advantages,
- cooking vapours are extracted both around the perimeter and in the centre
- you get increased grease separation by up to 30%
- smaller individual panels are easier to remove and dishwasher-proof
- air is drawn in uniformly across the full area of the unit, so very little condensate gathers
In its new Canto designer range, Miele offers 4 models with multi-zone edge extraction - 90 and 120 cm wide units which are available both as wall and island decor hoods. The 90 cm wide hoods can optionally be operated in vented or recirculation mode or even connected to an external fan. The larger models are primarily designed for vented operation or as motorless units for use with a fan installed elsewhere in the home. When properly fitted, the models from the Canto range offer excellent extraction combined with low sound emissions.
A special feature on this range is the use of halogen downlights with a dimmer function. Like most Miele cooker hoods, Canto models are also Con@ctivity-enabled. This automatic mode adjusts extraction to what is actually going on down on the hob.
