The induction hob fitted in well over our oven and looks sleek, simple and cool. It didn’t take that long to master how to use it with a simple swiping technique to turn the heat up and down quickly using a slide control- felt like I was using a giant iPad! First thing I tried was boiling some water - which didn’t seem to take very long at all.
When I heated some soup I could do this really quickly and then move it directly onto another hob to simmer. When it started bubbling it would immediately stop as soon as I swiped the heat down. Cleaning really quick also.
I did find that the hob was sensitive to things being placed on top - there was a spillage and it automatically turned off which is good yet I felt it needed some sort of sound to alert us that it was no longer on.
Another draw-back seemed to be the fact that not all our pots and pans were compatible with the new hob meaning I can’t use some of my favourite cookware on it and new purchases would have to be made.
However- a great product overall!
Hands down – the easiest hob to clean!
With induction cooking, heat can be instantly cut if food looks to boil over and, if it does, it won’t burn onto the cooler surface. You can just wipe it clean!
