This hob was already installed with our flat along with other Zanussi products. In less than 6 months the top is discoloured and covered in scratches. I used the same pans as we had in our previous place and there were no issues then, and it was an electric hob..I think the material just must not be as resilient. It does the job but the marks mean it’s impossible to ever look clean which frustrates me. I also find it difficult to clean around the switches on the hob and from what I can see they can’t be removed to do a proper clean.. ( please correct me if I’m wrong) the hob was never “easy to clean” even cleaning straight after something has split and it hasn’t had any time to dry on it’s difficult to get some things off. Additionally the edges are slightly raised and not flush with the counter, so dirt gets trapped under and I can’t get it out. Over all it’s very frustrating product to clean and it’s not aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Reduce your worries about kids in the kitchen!
This hob’s control knobs are located on the side, where it’s much more difficult for little fingers to get to them. Safer for kids, less stress for you!
