Find the ideal hob for you
An appliance that suits your needs
The hob is a vital part of any kitchen. There are several factors to consider when looking for a hob that best suits your needs. The space available, the types of cooking you prefer and your cleaning habits all influence which hob you should select. Follow our simple buying guide and you find the ideal hob for you.
Cooler surface, safer kitchen
Our intelligent induction technology heats pans and the food in them, but nothing else. The surface around the pans stays cool. So nothing gets burnt on, and the sleek, flat surface means there's nowhere for dirt to hide. Plus it only starts to get hot when there's cookware on the surface. So no cookware, no heat, no accidents.
