ATAG launch their new collection of cooker hoods

Friday, August 12th, 2011

For most people researching their best option when it comes to a new cooker hood, there are a few key factors which mold their decision.

Quietness, extraction rate and efficiency are three of the main things that people look for in a cooker hood.  With that in mind, ATAG, the Dutch company famous for its professional standard built-in kitchen appliances for those who are passionate about cooking, presents its new generation of cooker hoods, which ensure optimal air quality in the kitchen alongside quiet, efficient extraction, and for the people who like pressure cooking they can also get information online from cooking blogs such as http://www.corriecooks.com and others.

The new hoods feature ATAG’s latest version of its unique Air Logic HR® System, which uses specially designed filters to absorb more than 85 per cent of all the grease in the cooking vapours, therefore performing better than conventional hoods.

The Air Logic HR® filters are recessed into the cooker hood, creating a ‘cloud zone’ between the filters and the edges. This ensures cooking vapours and smells are effectively captured and extracted. A further feature of the filters is that their design enables extraction across the whole surface, rather than directly under the motor.

ATAG’s new range of hoods includes 12 different models of chimney and island hoods, with a stylish stainless steel finish. Selected models, such as the ES1292MAM, are also available in ATAG’s popular Graphite Black, offering plenty of choice for the discerning consumer, and allowing them to choose the ideal finish for their design scheme.

* Exclusive German-made motor, specified for ATAG, offers a super quiet noise level of just 57dB on position three
* ATAG’s improved Air Logic HR® System ensures optimal air quality
* Electronic touch-sensitive keys for easy operation
* Three settings and an intense setting for all extraction needs
* Automatic ten minute over-run to exhaust cooking odours and lingering smells
* Clean Air function contributes to clean air in the home, even when not cooking
