Hotpoint Experience CRA641DC Built In Ceramic Hob - Black

Powerful and energy efficient. It costs much less to run than any gas hob and with 4 separate heat zones you’ve got plenty of space to cook a couple of dishes at once. This electric ceramic hob is sleek enough to add a real sense of style to your kitchen. The touch controls are clear and elegant, and without bulky dials getting in the way, cleaning is so much easier too. The smooth surface means all you need to do is give it a quick wipe and it’ll be as good as new. Want safe, hassle free installation? We can now install when we deliver. You can also choose whether to have it built under your worktop, or into a housing unit at eye level.

"good ceramic hob"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Quiet, looks good

Cons: got to get it installed

"hob looks great -and is really easy to clean. I have had lots of great comments from friends about how it merges into your worktop.

It takes a bit of getting used to because you have to nominate which ring you want to control -then alter the temperature, easy to remember but when you are trying to get 4 things cooking at once you can get a bit muddled -in saying that i am getting better at it! I do find that its really easy to control cooking."

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: button heats up

"hob looks fantastic but am so disappointed with it as the on off button becomes very hot when using the front right plate.

Am going to write to hotpoint as I think this is a huge design error but I have paid for it to be installed now am not able to change it.

Only buy if you are concerned with looks otherwise choose something different"

"Disappointing purchase"

Pros: Quiet, Good build quality

Cons: Complicated, poor layout

"The hob looks classy and was easy to install. However, the controls are too close to the lower right plate such that a large pan switches the plate off accidentally. The controls have to be touched quite firmly to operate and are confusing to a stranger to the appliance. One small plate very slow, and it is not easy to clean."

"Not bad at all"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, looks good

Cons: surface scratches quickly

"Easy to install and use but the only reason I gave it 4 stars is when you use the bottom right ring on the hob, it heats up the all the controls which are quite close to this, I think this is a major design flaw as the controls become so hot that you can't really touch them. Now that I realised this, I don't use the bottom right hob much. Also the surface scratches quite quickly. All in all not bad for the price I purchased and generally happy with the heating etc."

"Great electric hob!"

Pros: Quiet, Easy to use, Good build quality, Value for money

"This toutch control hob has been great, heats up quickly, 9 step settings, easy to clean and looks great. The only small problem I can find is that it is possible to switch off by accident if you slide pans over the control panel."

"Easy to use"

Pros: Quiet, Easy to use, Good build quality

"Have only ever had a gas hob so was a little apprehensive, i was worried that it wouldn't be as powerful, but no need the rings heat up quickly and are powerful, it's easy to clean and operate, it took a bit of getting use to controlling the heat, you can turn the rings off and it carries on cooking for a few minutes, the only drawback is that it holds it heat so you can't clean it for a good while later, but on the whole i'm pleased with the purchase"

Hotpoint CRA641DC

There are 4 zones on the Hotpoint CRA641DC ceramic hob, each of them a different size to match your various pans. If you’re warming soup for one, you can use the smaller zone to save energy – you won’t have to turn on a huge zone every time. The far left zone even works with two separate pan sizes. You can choose whether to use the inner heating element, or add the extended zone to give you extra power when cooking with a big stock pot.

All 4 zones each come with 9 individual temperatures too, so whether your gently simmering a peppercorn sauce or searing a big juicy steak, you’ll be able to choose just the right heat to suit whatever it is you’re making.

It’s extremely easy to do too, thanks to the touch controls which are clearly laid out on the panel. All it takes is the lightest of touches to conjure up the heat you need, and better still, you won’t have a load of chunky dials in the way. You’re getting total peace of mind too, as all of the controls can be frozen with the child safety lock feature – extremely hand if you’ve got little ones in the kitchen with you.

Once all the cooking is done, you won’t have to spend ages on the cleaning. The entire surface is made from smooth ceramic glass, so any spills can be wiped up quick as a flash. You won’t have to break out an old toothbrush and scrub any fiddly pan supports either. All it takes is a cloth and a little soapy water – it’s as easy as that.
