bought this, without seeing this post... Had one of these in a rental property, only thing i would say is that the flame indicators wear off - apart from this great value for money.. If you want to have the falme indicators stay longer, put some clear nail varnish over them..
I've got the 4 burner cookology and tbh you get what you pay for, really flimsy compared to the better brands and my biggest bug bare that I didn't notice when buying it is the largest burner is at the back, just like on this! You want the biggest burner at the front where you will be frying etc and it's really annoying (lol)
That's often true but this hob looks extra large. Can't imagine it'd be an issue.
Not voted, but I'd steer clear of 5 burners with the wok burner in the middle. If you have a large pan (or wok), the other four burners can't be used! Having the wok burner on one side is a much better layout.
They need to be entirely flat bottomed. I have some "induction pans" that just dont work as they have ridges on the bottom for grip or whatever. They just flat out don't work.
£244.80 with trade card, don’t forget you may need new pans we have a whirlpool induction oneand it’s really fussy what pans can be used , anyone else have similar issues ? ( and yes they are all induction ones )
how are these on electric compared to ceramic and best for cooking on any advice welcome.
Glad to hear it works well. I had set out to buy a Bosch one but this ended up being 70 quid cheaper and I think it looks a bit better (aesthetically) tbh. I don't mind it being a bit loud, my kitchens a racket anyway!
Hi. Is the fan on yours noisy? And does it run constantly? Thx
Anyone know what warrantee is provided for the product? Is it likely to be the Manufacturer, theseller or PayPal default?
Had one of these for 10 years now and they are great, so easy to clean and nearly impossible to burn yourself on.
Thanks for that. Will have to look into it a bit further. Just didn’t want to go for it only to find when the electrician comes to fit it I’ve got to fork out for new wiring.
Hey Benny5, all electrical appliances sold in UK should have a data plate with the kilowatt (kw) and or Amp rating and voltage, usually along with model and serial number and sometimes other info like IP rating. To answer your question, you would need to look at the data plate of your solid/ceramic hob and see if it is rated at or more than 6400w or 27 amps at 240v. If so, then you should be ok but always, always check with a qualified electrician.
Interesting reading - looks as if a fault should cccur they will only replace (not repair) but the consumer must pay for fitting to remove (if required) and for fitting the new replacement. Warranty appears to be invalidated if not installed by a qualified electrician, which could be standard across the board - I'm not sure to be honest.
Hi, they have 4.8 based on 10,736 reviews on Trustpilot The one you are referring to looks to be based on a total of 9 reviews?
I'm in the market for a new oven & hob. Just checked Trust Pilot and this is probably one to avoid! Always do your research (y)
Hey, I picked one today! There was many available. Its not very obvious its on a discount and they are kinda hidden in the kitchen appliance section on the first floor!
I bought the LIDL double induction hob a few weeks back. I use it on top of my (rented) electric hob. Much better. Just need to source some saucepans and I can probably leave it there all the time. Looks like this one is maybe a bit more powerful but not really felt the need for more power. Looks like IKEA now have a double too: https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/p/tillreda-portable-induction-hob-2-zones-white-90497166/

Some reviewrs said that this model's overheat cut off function was too aggressive leaving them with a useless product, because of this I got the non-slim version for £50 from John Lewis. Was very tempted by this last time it was on offer but those reviews put me off. 2 year warranty with JL helped make my mind up (Amazon have the non slim at £50 today).
I havent yet seen the Aldi or Lidl ones in the past few months and I follow the middle isle deals closely online. Maybe they are due in soon?
No they have their own branding , good quality though, got an Aldi one at our caravan that must be knocking on 10 years old. They come with a 3 year warranty too.
Was it Tefal's?

It scratches easily and has a cheap feel to the glass. 1 2 3 & 4 all give the same heat then 5 6 7 8 the same and 9 different if that makes sense. If liquid bubbles over onto the 'buttons' it goes into error mode, beeps and turns off all the rings.
What issues are you having with it? Need to replace my steel/metal hob and this one seems decent for the price
I have this, its ok and it'll do but I wouldn't recommend or buy again.
I paid £90 quid for it as well and I’m getting on fine with it. Id say there’s not much difference between settings 1-4 but it’s actually better than the Bosch one it replaced. It was about £400 from memory and it was woeful.
Problem is with the induction hob, while I agree it is much better, some, like myself have good quality stainless steel pots, which will not work on induction, so costly to replace everything.
