Great appearance black with stainless steel surround - had previously chipped my frameless hob. Extremely quick on power boost to start off but very controllable with easy to use finger slide controls. Does not keep going off when splashed with water as my previous hob did and is not continually beeping. Have not tried using larger pans but think this will be an asset in the future when I won't be restricted to size of pan I buy.
'Direktouch' controls use the very latest digital technology to ensure precise heat selection.
