Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Be aware that the product is supplied configured for Natural Gas and will NOT operate for LPG. Additionally most engineers will NOT be able to fit the appliance and will likely , as in our experience , leave you with no gas supply for 2 weeks ! Take care before you buy !

Good points:
A breeze to clean. just wipe over. Simmer option brilliant - no more burnt pans or spill overs which is great.he he. Looks dynamic. Im made up with it.
Bad points:
wok burner plate discoloured even before I had used it - brown mottley spots, which are unmoveable. It irritates me slightly when burner doesnt light first time. Think this is a safety precaution in case knobs being turned on accidently.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The look of the hob is modern and the extra stability for wok cooking is a great feature.
Bad points:
The little black covers that cover the elements come off too easily when cleaning. This is not too bad as they rest on the top.

Seshadri, London Honest

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Good looking, the burners are arranged user friendly as the big woke like burner is in front making cooking with big pans easy. However, remember to press down the buttons until the count of 5-6 before leaving it to lit the flame. Though some one mentioned that it is difficult for the gas man to fix the hob behind, my gas man fitted it in 10 minuts. It is as easy as fitting a tap to a pipe.
Bad points:
None.
