This brilliant black ACM 702/NE Built-in Induction Hob from Whirlpool marries classic design with modern functionality. Benefit from intuitive touch controls and 4 variously-sized cooking zones for added flexibility.

Induction hobs are the fastest and most efficient way to cook, combining the responsiveness of a gas hob with the modern looks of ceramic. The beauty of induction is that it heats up and cools down in no time, reducing cooking times and allowing you greater control.

Putting your family's safety first, the Whirlpool ACM-702NE Built-in Induction Hob comes equipped with safety lock to prevent the hob being switched on accidentally. Meanwhile, residual-heat indicator lights prevent burnt fingers all round!

The ACM 702/NE Built-in Induction Hob from Whirlpool is an induction top, so it's much quicker, cleaner and more energy efficient than the traditional kind!

Next best price is £320 plus delivery from Pixmania! (Dixons excluded).

Unless I am mistaken they are all part of the same DSG group, so it should be the same ;)

The poster who said 6 seconds to boil water - is that water temperature from the tap to boiling - in 6 seconds??

Americanv8 please share details of the Whirlpool gizmo. If true then I would be tempted by this deal.
Thanks.
#12
Have found the Whirlpool gizmo that allows existing pans to be used but it is £32...Would work out expensive if you wanted one for each hob.
Search for WPRO whirlpool interface if you need one.

I have an induction hob and wouldn't look back...i had to change my pans, but bought a set from ikea which didn't cost the earth. It is amazingly quick at boiling water, althogh not sure about 6 seconds though.
#14
nice one Gents, was looking for a stop gap solution for our current energy burning ceramic hob and this fits the bill perfectly.

This gizmo does indeed exist, but it basically turns the induction hob into a bog standard electric hob.

The big feature of induction hobs is that it turns the cooking utensil into the heating device. This saves energy and heats the contents of the utensil faster.

Using the "gizmo", the effect of turning the utensil into the heating device is lost. You won't be saving energy and heating times are likely to be slower than a bog standard ceramic electric hob, of the equaivalent power setting.

In summary, it might better to simply replace all your pots/pans than to use this "gizmo".

I bought two portable induction hobs from QVC (don't laugh!) online for just over £30 each. I then went to Wilkinsons and bought a pan set for £10 and haven't looked back. Amazing I don't even use the hob on the cooker anymore. The units I bought were Giles and Posner, QVC don't stock them anymore. If you want to know how induction works see here >

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Induction_cooker

I now think it's better than gas and conventional electric cooking since using them. The unit in the following link is similar but not the same as my units and almost twice the price, you can find it cheaper elsewhere, anyway check out the Amazon reviews >

The pans I bought from Wilko's were carbon steel and £10 for a 5 piece set. I don't care about how posh my cooking utensils are lol, all I know is that they work with my induction hobs. This is the set I use with my hobs >

http://www.wilkinsonplus.com/Pots+Pans/Wilko-Saucepan-Set-Easy-Clean-5-Piece/invt/0220901

I asked the sales assistant to find me a magnet and I stuck it on the pans and then I was sure they would work. The pans also need a flat bottom to work properly as well, anyway that set works.

Depending how old your wiring is you may also need to have the cable rewired as they have a higher rating than normal hobs. We looked at one recently for my mum but decided against it for this reason.

Good price though and heat added!

Hi
Its a gr8 deal.
My experience...
I bought one from India for £40.00 (equivalent)... it can be adjusted for temperatures and the current consumption from 120 - 2100 watts.. and i have to say.. it gets really hot if u need it to... i have never ever used to beyond the 1200w mark for daily cooking.

U can boil and big pot of water in under two min at the max setting...
Yes i did have to change a couple of my utensils.. but its worth the effort.. its better than gas in a million ways.. u can exactly control the heat u need.. and its quicker..
The only downside at the start is _____--- its damn quick so u need to get things ready before u put it on... and for non stick pans.. u need some oil init before swithching on..else u would burn ur pot.

I did make a steak one day.. on 500w for an hour and i have to say.. the beef was soft and yummy.

Good deal!
suspended#20
this is a fantastic hob highly recomend also anyone looking for induction pans check out qvc most of their pans suitable and very reasonably priced
#21
Fantastic price if it's a good example of an induction hob, we've had a Neff induction hob for 9 years now, would never go back.
We were lucky to get a set of pans thrown in (but at £900 for the hob you would expect something!) but we tried the Ikea 365+ range and can recommend those.
#22
This is a very good price for an induction hob, when we bought our 4 zone induction hob (~3 years ago) the prices all seemed to be around £400 minimum! I have a normal 4 zone induction hob, and I also have a single zone portable induction hob, both excellent! Before I got the 4 zone one, I used to completely ignore my old ceramic hob, and just set up my portable induction hob on the bench next to it, and always just cooked on that! Unfortunately this took up some of my precious bench space, but it was well worth it. Then i got the 4 zone one, and the set up was perfect, and i got my bench back! (and now that my kitchen is being done out and i have no kitchen, i'm cooking using the portable one on the lounge floor!) I hope to never return to a normal ceramic or gas hob. In my experience, induction combines the best of all worlds - it's easy to clean as it's a totally flat surface, it's much more efficient than a ceramic hob, it reacts instantly when you turn the temperature up / down, and you never have to worry if the gas is off. And it's easy to find out if your current pans will work with it - just get a magnet, and if it sticks to the bottom of your pans, then your pans will work on an induction hob.

Does this have to be installed by a qualified sparks.....? I have a standard halogen hob, I think its cable is 6mm and goes straight back to its own 30 amp Isolator on the main board... ?
#26
I want to get this guys but can someone help answer some questions for me .... I have just moved into a place and it has a standard flat black electric ceramic hob, not sure if it is halagon ... can I just take that out and put this in or should there be some checks I need to make .... also can you use this with a tava / tawa ... curved pan to make chapatis with .... Thanks much in advance !

I bought two portable induction hobs from QVC (don't laugh!).

It's OK, we're not laughing...QVC are a good company. It's just the "shopping channel" stigma that they unfairly suffer from.

Anyhow, heat added for Whirlpool deal.

We have a portable induction hob which we take with us when we stop in a hotels. Saved loads of money when we stopping in London Travelodge for a week. Cooked Pasta, Beans, Soup and much more. Paid £29.99!! We also take a toaster as well saves buying breakfast!

Reminds me of Alan Partridge taking his own extra large plate into the hotel dining room... :D

That said DontRun those were top tips. Please can we have some more. Times are hard.:|

I've thought about doing this in the past but knowing my luck I'd burn the toast, set the smoke alarm off and the whole hotel would have to be evacuated :-)

I take my own sleeping bag and pay less to sleep in the hotel broom cupboard.
#32

#33
Yeah looks like it's gone up to £249.99 now, showing the same at Dixons too. Missed out!
