- Good points:
Looks fantastic, really impressive. Is a real focal point of my new kitchen.
The mirror glass is so easy to clean just a quick wipe over with glass cleaner spray and kitchen roll.
Really powerful gas hob, cooks evenly.
- Bad points:
At first it was a nightmare for me to clean the polished stainless steel burner caps and burner grills and they are horrendously expensive to replace. I was getting brown heat marks on them everytime I cooked, I tried everything to get the marks out - brasso, bar keepers friend, stainless steel sprays, peek, even WD40! but nothing would really shift the stains completely and from the hard scrubbing with wire wool the polished burner caps went dull and brownish/black looking.
I then ordered crema inox from the smeg website, its a concentrated stainless steel cream cleaner and you just wipe the caps over with the cleaner using kitchen roll. Straight away the kitchen roll came away black, I went over then a few times rinsing inbetween and all the marks came off completely and even most of the shine was restored. I was so impressed I ordered 2 more bottles right away and am no longer afraid to use my hob!
The cleaner is hard to find on the website you go to servevasdirect from the smeg website and look in cleaning products on the home page its a square button with a picture of mop heads and 2 bottles of cleaner.
I don't work for them or anything just wanted to share the find with other owners of the gas to save the expense of buying so many other products first like I did.
