The induction hob is truly as good as a gas hob, this was an important features of any new cooker for me because we can only realistically use electricity as the energy source for cooking. Having always used gas before we moved, trying to get to grips with the inordinately slow ceramic hob that was in the new house drove me crazy. The responsiveness of this hob is great, quick to heat up and turn down before pans boil over. The double oven is useful but the steam feature in the main oven bakes beautifully crusty bread, much better than putting a bowl of water in the bottom of an oven although I don't understand why this should be. Have not had to clean the oven yet but it looks as though it will be easy.
