New Bosch Voice Activated Extractor Fan!

The BSH Group (Bosch, Neff & Siemens) is excellent at keeping up with current trends in technology, and implementing them into their appliances. Bosch have launched a range of Voice Activated Extractor Hoods which has got us very excited! Far from just a gimmick, the ability to control your extractor fan with just your voice has tremendous benefits. Below are some common commands which will save you reaching for your remote …


“Alexa, tell my hood to activate automatic mode” 

“Alexa, tell my hood to use intensive level 1”

“Alexa, tell my hood to use fan level 1, 2, 3, 4”

“Alexa, tell my hood to turn on / off”


We think our clients will be hugely impressed by the new range. Within the last two weeks, we’ve seen a new extractor hood, the DRC97AQ50B, which is incredibly sleek and clean looking – perfect for pairing with our contemporary German kitchens. What’s more, the extractor is incredibly eco friendly as well as being incredibly quite.

We’re excited about how BSH and our other suppliers are creating technologically advances, practical appliances – they’ll work wonderfully in any kitchen, regardless of style.
