Because Searle & Taylor is an independent kitchen design company, we only partner with and recommend kitchen appliance brands that we regard as the best within their price range. A couple of years ago when Novy, the luxury Belgian induction and extraction brand became available in the UK for the first time, we were one of the first kitchen retailers to display their extraction appliances. A household name in Northern Europe, Novy is renowned for making the highest quality ultra-quiet cooker hoods together with unique and innovative induction hobs and we now feature four Novy products in our showroom. Our most recent addition is the Red Dot-awarded Novy Panorama 88cm Vented Downdraft Induction Hob, a fantastic dual-purpose combination appliance that saves space in the kitchen.
What we like about the Panorama is the fact that the ventilation tower is completely concealed within the hob’s surface until it is required. Whether manually activated using touch controls on the hob, or using the new Novy app, the tower rises up to 30cm to extract grease and cooking odours at source – directly behind the pans, and it can be at different height levels so negligible energy is wasted in the process. It is super-quiet even in recirculation mode and the induction hob itself has amazing cooking features including a bridge function for larger pans and a nifty grill function so you can grill on the hob using an additional griddle pan, making surface cooking very flexible and easy to see.
What we also like about it is that, unlike other vented hobs with a central static vent in the hob itself, the Panorama’s surface isn’t interrupted, so you can easily move pans across it, plus it is intuitive so it will remember the settings when you do. Also, the motor is cleverly designed and takes up very little space as it fits against the back of the unit beneath so that you can still have up to 40cm of drawer depth under the hob.
