Phil, Bristol New induction convert

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Induction hobs are fantastic, so fast and controllable. As a life long gas hob user induction hobs have lived up to the claims of performance.

Contols are simple and easy to use. It looks good and is easy to clean.
Bad points:
The claim that you can put the pan anywhere is not quite right. There are four 27cm hobs and you need to place the pan over the cross. Since the hob size is so small you effectively need it right in the centre, with all except the smallest pans. You may as well get one with the hob size shown with a circle as it is frustrating to have to check that the pan is right on the centre. I imagine with some other models or brands you are able to put the pan anywhere, but not this one.

The crosses are a bit too far apart to be able to join them up as the functionality claims. You can but I imagine you would need a very large pan.

The other thing no one says it that the hobs are quite noisy, or at least this one is. There is a loud humming when first turned on to a high temp, it does quieten down once turned down, but is far from silent with occasional click and hums.

The type of pan you use is also important. The better the quicker and more evenly it heats up. Also the less noise it makes, so well worth investing in a good set.

Overall pleased with the hob, it works well, but probably wouldn't buy this model or brand again. I'd stick with induction but perhaps pay a couple of hundred quid more for a better model / brand that covered more of the base of the pan.

Good points:
Touch control of heat. Water boils faster on the hob than in my kettle! Amazingly responsive and easy to clean because it's a flat surface.
Bad points:
A couple of safety functions switch off the hob when you are not expecting it eg if you accidentally cover the touch controls with a pan. Not totally intuitive to use so keep the instructions to hand for the first 2 weeks.

Clive, Bishop's Stortford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to install. Very easy to clean and attractive appearance. Super fast heating times and useful ability to heat a large pan on two induction areas simultaneously.
Bad points:
Controls a bit fiddly (touch sensitivity could be better). Care needed not to burn items or overheat oils on the P boost setting.

Manufacturer's Description

Significantly extended cooking options, with MaxiSense®

With MaxiSense® zones pots and pans have maximum space and choice of position, as long as the cross is covered

Professional performance thanks to larger cooking area

This induction hob’s larger cooking area provides the space you need to cook professionally. It allows you to use larger, specialist pans for perfect results.

Precise settings at the touch of a finger

Gives you instant access to the hob’s controls and immediate control to select the precise level you need. All at the touch of a finger.

Intelligent use of power for reduced energy consumption

The Öko Timer enables you to use energy more efficiently by using the hob’s residual heat during the last few minutes of the cooking process.

Keep in control of your cooking

To enable you to closely monitor the progress of each dish, the CountUp Timer starts at zero and keeps counting until you stop or reset it.

Extra efficiency use of residual heat

For each heat zone, the OptiHeat Control tracks the level of residual heat, so you can make the most of your remaining heat and optimize your energy usage.
