Induction Hobs

Induction hobs are a safe and easy solution to cooking, with a flat reflective surface that conducts energy more efficiently than most traditional varieties of hobs. Innovative technology means that temperature stays constant, giving you higher quality cooking that is less likely to burn. A more environmentally friendly and effective way of hob cooking, induction hobs are also a family-friendly option as the surface is cool to the touch and turns off automatically when a pan is not in contact with it.

Induction hobs are also a stylish addition to a contemporary kitchen design, as the surface sits flat to a worktop creating a seamless, linear look that is easy to wipe and keep clean.

Here at HKS, we stock a wide range of innovative induction hobs including Bora’s cutting-edge combined cooktop & extractor system (below).

Cooker Hoods

While cooker hoods may seem like a less interesting design choice, they are crucial in creating a functioning kitchen environment. While there are many styles that can add to the appearance of your kitchen, they have an important role in removing smoke and grease from your cooking spaces to make your surroundings clean and fresh. The size and typical use of your kitchen will affect which cooker hood you choose: extraction and chimney hoods are more statement choices that will be larger, louder and quicker at removing cooking fumes, however, smaller spaces may only require integrated hoods that are more subtle in appearance.

Considering how you use your kitchen on a daily basis is likely to impact which cooker hood you choose, as well as taking into account clever functions such as lighting and touch-sensitive controls that may be practical for your household.


Wine Coolers

Wine coolers are a luxurious choice, but one that will benefit anyone who enjoys entertaining. Depending on the size of your space as well as your requirements, wine coolers can come in a variety of measurements as freestanding units or as a part of your fitted kitchen design.

A wine cooler will eliminate all of the variables in the storage environment, providing a constant temperature that keeps your wine in the best possible condition. Additionally, LED lighting and UV protection will prevent wine from spoiling and ensuring that every glass takes incredible.
