Franke’s new Maris Drip Free Cooker Hood combats condensation

Franke’s new Maris Free cooker hood prevents condensation and keeps the kitchen free of odours thanks to its innovative drip-free technology that ensures no water droplets will fall down onto the hob or back into food.

The Maris Drip Free hood features a heated glass panel and an additional heating element at the bottom which prevents the formation of water drips. It also has a specific thermo-resistance function, activated by the simple touch of a button, which directly tackles the moisture and condensation caused by the temperature differences between the hob’s hot cooking surface and the colder air under the hood which causes water droplets to form. The hood is suitable for use with any type of hob but is especially suited to induction hobs and the powerful boosts of temperature used during cooking for, example with woks.

The hood can be fitted for ducted extraction or in recirculating mode which, when coupled with an odour-banishing charcoal filter, retains unpleasant smells, particles and unwanted substances before returning filtered air to your kitchen, keeping it fresh throughout the day.

Consisting of a single glass panel design, with no hinges or gaps, the Maris Drip Free Hood is extremely easy to clean and promotes greater hygiene in the kitchen. For visibility and easy operation, the hood features a glossy black control panel while the main section is a textured black matt finish – the trending colour of the year – which contributes to the hood’s ‘always dry’ modern look.

The hood measure 90cm wide, offers three operating speed settings plus intensive mode and has a quiet 56db sound level and an extraction rate of 600m3/h at the maximum setting. Designed to use less energy and reduce running costs, the Maris Drip Free Hood is A-Class energy rated.
