Induction and extraction with Caple’s new hob
Appliance specialist Caple’s new DD810BK induction hob with downdraft extraction features an integrated motor located just below the hob and the Invisi-touch display. The display and touch controls are illuminated when the hob is in use, but disappear when it is not, creating a discreet aesthetic with only the ‘on’ icon being visible.
Caple Product manager Luke Shipway said: “Our new induction downdraft extractor gives you the option of recirculating the air using a charcoal filter or you can duct it outside. This A+ energy-rated hob is highly versatile. For example, you can combine the front and rear induction zones on each side using the Bridge function, which will instantly create two larger cooking areas. This makes the DD810BK ideal when cooking for a crowd, whether you’ve got a large family or you’re hosting a party.”
Other key features include Grill for use with a griddle plate and permanent pan recognition so a cooking setting can be switched on via the touch-control slider after a pan has been detected on the hob. The Keep Warm function will also keep the food in the pan at a perfect temperature till ready to serve.
The hob has four induction zones, each with ten power levels including their own dedicated booster and Auto Boost mode, and features a black glass finish with a stylish stainless-steel extractor grille. This frameless model is also suitable for flush or inset installation and features an automatic (ten to 60 minute) timer which will switch the extractor off ten minutes after cooking finishes. Space-saving installation makes usable space available under the hob.
The DD810BK measures 800mm (L) by 520mm (W) by 208mm (D) and costs £2,531 including VAT.
