Top 5 Electric Hobs

Independently reviewed. Perfectly priced.

If you're looking for style AND substance then look no further than this Hotpoint ceramic hob in stylish black. It's a great price for everything you're getting, with the 4 heating zones in different sizes to accommodate for your pans. One of them is a double ring zone that gives you fast and powerful heat - perfect if you're making a big stir-fry for the family. 

It has 12 power levels which is really impressive and means you'll get the ideal temperature every time. As it's a ceramic hob, it's got a completely flat surface so you won't have wobbly pans, plus any spills can be cleaned up in no time.

There’s a child safety lock, which means little fingers won’t be able to play with the controls and to make it even safer, you get residual heat indicators that'll tell you when the hob is still hot to touch too. Something less to worry about.

This model’s a real luxury buy. It’s Neff, so you know you’re getting great build quality as well as some really useful features. For example, you can set the timer to beep when the time’s up, so you won’t forget you’ve got the pasta on.

As it’s an induction model, you’ll be saving bags of energy. Induction works by using magnets to heat your pans directly, rather than the surface of the hob – so you won’t be wasting power. It also means the hobs itself is never overly hot, so it’s a good choice if you’ve got children. There’s even a handy child lock too, so the little ones can’t play with the controls.

You’re getting 4 cooking zones with variable power, so you can warm some soup or boil a big pan of rice. Each one has a power boost option too, which is great if you want your food in a hurry.

Simple to use and easy to clean – that must sound good and it’s exactly what this Belling hob is. It’s made right here in the United Kingdom, carefully put together and rigorously tested before leaving the factory floor. Not one appliance leaves without being checked.

No matter what size pan you’re using, the 4 burner zones are set out in such a way to accommodate them all. And with 3 different sizes to choose from you can be searing on one, simmering using another and boiling away with the other two. Better still, you have 6 power levels to switch between which gives you loads of control over how hot you’d like your pans to get to.

Nobody likes cleaning and hobs are no exception to this rule. Remember how your mum, nan or even yourself spent forever scrubbing your old hob with bicarbonate of soda? Not anymore. The ceramic surface of this hob lends itself to easy cleaning. All you have to do is give it a few wipes and it’ll be looking shiny and new in no time.

In 4th place is an induction hob, which gives you some amazing technology. It offers a quicker and more economical way to cook. I think it comes at a fantastic price when you consider what you're getting. It uses magnetic fields to heat your pan rather than the hob and it’s as responsive as gas, so you can go from boiling to simmering in a matter of seconds.

It has touch controls like my number 2, and each burner has 9 different power levels for flexibility. Like the others on my list, you get 4 different zones and it comes with a child lock too, so little fingers can’t mess with the controls.

This model is one of the best looking on the market. The smooth ceramic surface makes it just as easy to clean as the other hobs here. Plus the touch controls mean using it is a real pleasure. Very slick and very responsive.

There are 4 zones here too, giving you enough space for your pots and pan. Also, when you’re done cooking, there is a residual heat indicator to let you know when the zones are still hot to the touch. It’ll save you from accidentally touching the hot surface or putting your shopping bags on it.

You’re getting a child safety lock too. Extremely useful if you've got little ones with you while you’re cooking, as they won’t be able to play with the settings. That extra peace of mind can be invaluable in your kitchen.
