Just been tracking mine and it’s in its way back to Germany before even being delivered to me due to damage!!
I would definitely unpack and check - since my disaster, I have read that many customers in Germany have suffered broken devices on arrival. 😰 As Amazon couldn't send a replacement, I'm returning a box of shrapnel for refund and ordered an alternative Siemens Hob without the bevelled front edge - same price - but asked them to be sure of adding fragile stickers. Good luck!
Oh jeez, now I'm paranoid. It sounded intact when I moved it into the garage!
Oh boy! My hob arrived yesterday via UPS and I didn't bother to unwrap as the sound said it all. Totally smashed!! Now dealing with Amazon.de for return and replacement. Good luck to everyone else.
Good spot - my mistake, I wasn't using Amazon as the seller!
