This hob has highly sensitive control panel meaning that a droplet of water from a bubbling pan, a damp tea-towel or anything metal will cause the hob to start bleeping at you and if on, often shut down meaning your cooking stops. It totally misses the point of a ceramic hob which is to increase the amount of work top available to you when not cooking. I have had an AEG hob before with no problem but this highly dialled up sensitivity has made the hob a pain to use. If I could send this back I would. Do not buy this hob.
Intelligent use of power for reduced energy consumption
The Öko Timer enables you to use energy more efficiently by using the hob's residual heat during the last few minutes of the cooking process.
