NikolaTesla is Elica’s first aspirating
induction hob equipped with the most advanced
technologies with distinctive design,
characterized by strong lines and high quality
material, combining the functions of two
appliances into one single product.
It has all the advantages of induction hobs,
such as rapid cooking and easy cleaning.
However, Elica added specific technologies,
like the double bridge function that allows
for two adjacent cooking zones to combine, so
that large sized pots can be used
The aspirating system, positioned in the
central zone, reaches high performance levels,
in terms of fume extraction, noise level and
energy efficiency (class A+). Thanks to the
direct communication with the hob, it is able
to receive information from the cooking zones,
and automatically calibrates the ideal
aspiration level, so that the user only needs
to worry about cooking, while at the same time
reducing energy consumption.
The command is 10 speed touch control, that
allows you to adjust both the hob and the
aspirating zone.
Available in both aspirating and filtering
version, the hob was thought up for any type
of space, and thanks to a series of
accessories, it can meet any installation
In the filtering version, the high performing
new generation ceramic odor filters are
accessible from the top part of the hob,
making cleaning and maintenance a cinch.
The grease filter grid and the filter itself,
are characterized by exclusive design, with
attention to every detail.
Also available in an HP (High Performance)
version, with additional features available
for the cooking zones, NikolaTesla is Snap
ready, that is connectable with SNAP, Elica’s
aspiration system that automatically monitors
and improves air quality.
