Ceramic hobs look ultra sleek in your kitchen top. They’re a great choice of hob usually coming with four varying sizes of burners to give you a choice of what pan sizes you use. And then generally have a big range of power levels so you can simply simmer your veg or get the heat high for a sizzling stir fry.
One feature which has become really popular over the past few years is touch controls, as the hob becomes a complete black expanse which is really to clean. There aren’t any pesky pan supports or dials to get around so with a quick wipe the hob is back in top condition. Have a look at the Samsung C61R2AEE if you like the sound of touch controls.
If you want a more traditional hob which is really easy to use, you could go for one like the Beko HIC64102. It’s a great choice if you have arthritis as the dials are quite big and use the simple rotary control.
If you like feeling like a professional chef who makes the most of their cooking have a look at a 5 burner ceramic hob, as they're seriously impressive. The Smeg SE2773TC2 for example, has an extendable zone for awkward sized pans or a fish kettle.
The next step up from ceramic hobs is the induction hob, which are more powerful and efficient. If you want to have a look at which induction hobs are on offer, click here.
