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.

Key features and benefits of the ATAG ES1292MAM island chimney hood:

* Sophisticated Graphite Black shade, also available in stylish stainless steel
* Powerful 749m³ maximum extraction capacity (per hour)
* 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

* 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
* Indicator when grease or carbon filters are saturated to ensure kitchen stays clean and fresh
* Six robust stainless steel filter cassettes, dishwasher safe for easy cleaning
* Three 20w lights for easy visibility

Bill Miller, ATAG’s Sales and Marketing Director, says: “Good extraction is vital in the modern kitchen, particularly with the increase in entertaining at home and experimenting with different styles of cooking, and ATAG’s new range of hoods feature superior technology to ensure a clean, fresh kitchen. The improved Air Logic HR® System maintains optimal air quality, with quiet extraction that won’t drown out the conversation.”

Funky Hoods – Kitchen Cooker Hoods With Flair

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Falmec Pharoe Cooker Hood

Your choice of cooker hood can sometimes make a big difference when it comes to adding that “WOW Factor” to your kitchen.

Gone are the days when your only choice is a basic stainless steel hood that offers little in the way of design or style.

Once purely a functional necessity in the kitchen, cooker hoods have now become much more about style and flair.

The choice you now have is much broader, with appliance manufacturers and kitchen designers realising that a cooker hood can now be the focal point in kitchen design.

We’ve put together this showcase of funky cooker hoods that we love at Kitchenindex.ie and think you might like for your new kitchen. They would certainly add some style and could be that “something different” that you’ve been looking for.

You will also find links at the bottom of the page that will take you to the websites of the brands that we have featured.
