We were delighted that AEG selected us to receive this hob free of charge in return for an honest review of its performance, which is what I will attempt to do.
Firstly, you have to say that this is a stunning looking addition to the kitchen. If, like us, your kitchen and its island have quickly become the hub of the family and the center of attention for visiting guests, then this understated yet modern looking centerpiece is an excellent choice.
But its not all about looks, and this hob had a lot to do to win me over, as I have always loved gas in the past for speed and control. This was not helped by the sudden realization that not only was my wok entirely the wrong shape, but more than half of our pans were not conductive at all, or very poor.
As a result, investing in Induction does lead to investing in new pans, though if we were honest, they were past their best.
So, armed with shiny new pans and even a new fangled flat base wok we set about trying out many different styles of cooking. We had complete success, the hob works as good as it looks, I am a gas convert!! The speed it warms things up is amazing, way more controllable than gas and much safer, as the surround hardly gets warm at all.
The family cat literally stepped over a pan of boiling potatoes before we could catch him and did not bat an eyelid.
It looks great, it cooks amazingly quickly, cleans up perfectly and is incredibly safe for kids and cats alike, there really is nothing to fault.
At first we struggled a little with the range of features the buttons provide access to, but, once mastered there is nothing not to like.
