NikolaTesla Switch Induction Cooktop

NikolaTesla Switch is the latest induction cook-top with an integrated extraction system by Elica created to revolutionize the daily cooking experience and turn the point of view of the kitchen literally upside-down. Cooking and extraction are combined in a single unit where the search for harmony and maximum attention to detail, together with innovative functions and unique performance, produces the highest expression of technology and design. A central disk of glass and steel, completely flush with the cook top surface, cleverly conceals the extraction system.
