Premium household appliance brand Siemens has launched the glassdraftAir extractor for open plan kitchens.
Available in 800 and 900mm widths, it features clear glass to offer an uninterrupted view into the living space.
The glassdraftAir is powered by Siemens Guided Air Technology, with vents behind the glass which release a curtain of air creating low-pressure and guide steam and odour into the extraction area.
Featuring a climateControl sense, it continually monitors steam and cooking odours, then adjusts the power level for the the most efficient extraction, while delivering the lowest noise level.
Wi-Fi-enabled, glassdraftAir also boasts the cookConnect system, whereby the extractor can be controlled by the hob and allows for the hood to automatically start when the hob is in use.
In addition, the extractor can also be controlled and monitored by the Home Connect app, where the user can receive push notifications when the filter needs changing or changing the ambient light.
Fitted with emotionLight Pro, glassdraftAir offers a choice of nine pre-set colours for illumination around the glass panel, but consumers can choose more options using the Home Connect app.
Completing the line-up of features is Filter Service, which allows the glass to lower and return upwards bringing the grease filters to the surface.
It allows for easy removal of the filters, allowing them to be cleaned in the dishwasher, and the replacement of recirculation filters. The glass panel can aso be lifted out for cleaning and is dishwasher-safe.
Siemens offers two filter types for recirculation, cleanAir Plus and Long Life 10-year regenerative technologies.
