Faber Introduce The HOO-B – The Next Generation Of Downdraft Extractor

11th April 2017


Launched at Eurocucina 2016, HOO-B is one of Faber’s latest advancements in extraction technology. HOO-B is a cooktop-level downdraft extractor which cleans the air without any visual obstruction from an overhead cooker hood. The HOO-B blends perfectly into the hob area, ready to provide efficient kitchen extraction whilst allowing clear views of the kitchen.

The HOOB is designed to be placed alongside or in-between cooking hobs and extracts air directly down beneath the worktop unit. With a ducting system that is easily installed, the HOO-B can also be set to recirculate cleaned air back into the kitchen. Cooking fumes are efficiently drawn downwards into the extraction unit and expelled via an under-counter ducting system.

A sophisticated yet minimal design, the HOO-B is constructed from sleek, black glass and is built entirely into the worktop. HOO-B is operated via touch control, and once the glass cover is removed powerful extraction can begin.

HOO-B also boasts high levels of efficiency thanks to the brush-less motor which guarantees excellent performances and energy savings, and the power-off delay function which completes the elimination of residual odours. HOO-B’s energy saving performances are particularly noteworthy: in fact, the HOO-B has a domestic appliance energy class rating of A+; a real milestone in the extractor hood sector.

Faber will also be introducing a line of Induction hob tops which are designed to be used alongside the HOO-B and will be available in a range of different sizes.
