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. 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. The command is 10 speed touch control. 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 need
