Induction hobs are by far the best types of hobs on the market. They use 90% of their energy, compared to gas and electric which only use 40-50%. They’re a whole lot faster than the other hobs as well, heating a pint of water in just 90 seconds; gas and electric take 3 and half minutes.
Induction hobs have become really popular over the last few years, as they’ve become more affordable. The Indesit VIA640C is really popular and doesn't break the bank.
If you want a really top performance choose a hob which has a heat booster function, such as the Siemens EH651TA16E. The booster takes heat from the other zones to get a extremely fast and intense heat, helping to get your spuds boiling in seconds.
Induction hobs are seriously safe as they only heat up when the pan is placed down on the zone. If you want an even safer hob however, take a look at models which have a quick/emergency stop function, such as the PIE611T14E. With one touch of a button all the hob zones switch off, it’s great if the doorbell rings or the phone and you just want a quick and easy way to pause your cooking.
There is another top safety function which protects you, your family and the dinner. It’s the child lock function where you can easily prevent the controls being tampered with.
One of our most popular brands for induction hobs is Neff due to their touch Point and Twist technology. A magnetic dial to controls the hob which can be twisted, turned and completely removed from the hob, keeping it sleek and uncluttered.
Safer, faster and much more efficient than any other type of hob.
