Novy has launched the Novy Easy Pro – an 80cm vented induction hob featuring a quiet central matrix extractor that automatically regulates the extraction speed once cooking begins. With an extraction or recirculation model to choose from, the hob includes two large Flexzones and also benefits from a wide range of functions that are designed to make surface cooking easier.
The surface- or flush-mounted hob features four 240 x 210mm cooking zones that can be converted into two zoneless Flexzones on either side of the central extractor vent. A bridging function will activate if a larger pan is placed across the zones, ensuring the temperature is the same across the entire cooking area. Featuring automatic pot detection, pans can be moved around the hob with temperatures remaining constant. Further functions include Automatic Cooking, a Keep Warm function at 70°C, and a Stop&Go function.
The Novy Easy Pro is also said to be simple to maintain: the frame of the metal grease filter is also a collection tray should something boil over and run into the extractor. Both the grease filter frame and the matrix grid are removable and dishwasher safe.
