How do I optimise my kitchen maintenance?

The high-quality surfaces of a kitchen are generally very easy to care for. To maintain the value and lifespan of your new kitchen for many years, you should still clean it regularly, but above all properly. For this purpose, we recommend the cleaners for fronts and carcasses tested and approved by nobilia. These are available in our nobilia shop.

Please observe the following care instructions:

  • Only use mild, water-soluble household cleaners that are expressly intended for kitchen furniture in their product information.
  • The use of substances containing solvents and alcohol must generally be avoided.
  • Under no circumstances should you use glass cleaners, as these contain solvent-based substances!
  • Regardless of whether you have purchased a high-gloss front or a super-matt plastic front, please do not use any harsh chemical substances or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents under any circumstances. Scouring powder, steel wool or pot scourers also destroy the surface to such an extent that reconditioning is no longer possible.
  • Use a soft, lint-free cloth, leather or a soft sponge. nobilia recommends the Premium cloth for streak-free and streak-free cleaning.

What do I need to consider when caring for my tabletops?

As a general rule, table tops should not be used as cutting surfaces, as knife cuts can leave notches in any material, including hard Laminate. Cutting surfaces made of wood, Plastic, granite or similar are useful.

  • Moving porcelain and stoneware crockery can cause slight scratches on the table top.
  • In the case of deep matt décors, sliding objects can cause shiny spots during daily use.
  • Hot pots, pans or other hot objects must not be placed on the tabletop. It is best to use a trivet!
  • The table tops can be cleaned with standard household cleaning agents (no abrasive cleaners!).
  • Standing liquids on tabletops must be removed immediately.

The Xtra Hob cooktop extractor is a standard induction cooktop with an integrated extractor hood that is perfectly matched to the 373 Grey slate reproduction decor and thus integrates almost invisibly into the worktop. Unlike other invisible hobs, it does not need to be positioned underneath the worktop with built-in sensors.

Which worktops are suitable for invisible hobs?

As the Xtra Hob can be planned both flush and surface-mounted, the cooktop extractor can be integrated into all worktop decors. For a visually invisible character, we recommend integration in the Xtra decor 373 Grey slate reproduction.

Are invisible hobs only available as induction?

The Xtra Hob is available in three different models and two available widths (60 cm, 80 cm).

How much do invisible hobs cost?
