NikolaTesla Switch is the latest downdraft induction cooktop by Elica created to revolutionise the daily cooking experience and turn the point of view of the kitchen literally upside down.
Induction and extraction are combined in a single product where the search for harmony and maximum attention to detail, together with innovative functions and unique performance, represent the highest expression of technology and design.
Cooking co-exists with extraction on a large ceramic glass surface where no one element prevails over the other, everything is concealed, made two-dimensional, and a graphic sign is what determines the overall harmony. A central ring with cast iron effect and a glass circle, completely flush with the cooktop surface, cleverly conceal the extraction system.
By rotating this circular element, NikolaTesla Switch extraction is activated, releasing all of its power through this innovative flap to guarantee total air control. The downdraft and induction cooktop by Elica reaches high performance levels in terms of fume and odour extraction, five times faster than the rising speed, is impressively silent thanks to noise levels of just 59dBA, and has a class A+ energy efficiency rating. Thanks to the use of sensors that measure the air quality, NikolaTesla Switch is able to automatically adjust the extraction speed, thus optimising power consumption.
The control interface is intuitive and easy to use thanks to 5 direct sliders and is totally invisible in standby mode, making this an extremely clean product in aesthetic terms. NikolaTesla Switch has four cooking zones featuring latest generation induction systems and is equipped with a double bridge function allowing two adjacent zones to work simultaneously, thus guaranteeing uniform cooking even when using large-sized pots.
