Franke’s newly launched Maris 2gether is said to answer demand for hob extraction at different price points, driven by the open-plan living trend.
Maris 2gether has been introduced on the back of strong demand for the brand’s best-selling, premium Mythos 2gether hob extractor to provide a more accessibly priced option. It features a fully integrated cast-iron grid extractor positioned centrally between the hob’s four cooking zones, which powerfully draws out up to 700 m3/h of air from around pots and pans, efficiently removing unwanted cooking odours and condensation.
The frameless 830mm wide x 520mm hob extractor is made from slimline 4mm black glass that sits almost flush with the worktop and ensures easy cleaning. It features discreet digital touch controls with one slider for a unified aesthetic.
It also boasts two flexi zones for cooking on a fully flexible surface with pots and pans of all shapes and sizes, nine power levels plus a booster function, a timer for all zones, an A++ energy rating and grease efficiency class B. With its smooth, glass design the extractor hood is extremely easy to clean and its grease filters are dishwasher-proof.
Jo Sargent, sales and marketing director at Franke UK, said: “With the trend towards open-plan living, we’ve seen growing interest in integrated hob extractors where everything is kept at hob level and blends seamlessly into a kitchen design. These models offer powerful localised extraction that quickly removes cooking odours and condensation before they have chance to rise and permeate the kitchen while at the same time maintaining a streamlined aesthetic. On the back of strong demand for our best-selling Mythos 2gether hob extractor we’ve launched Maris 2gether to provide consumers with an option at different price points at the mid-to-premium end.”
Maris 2gether is one of nine new additions to Franke’s decorative hoods portfolio. The range includes a total of 30 designs spanning hob extractors, downdraft, wall-mounted, island, ceiling and under cabinet models offering a wide choice of designs, levels of functionality, installation options and price points.
