Hotpoint Experience CRO642DB Built In Ceramic Hob - Black

Smoother than a baby’s behind. A silky black glass finish and touch controls give this ceramic hob a whole lot of panache. Four cooking zones complete the hob, including two double ring areas for when you need a little extra power – sizzling up a juicy steak, for example, would suit these double-ringed zones down to a tee. The residual heat indicators and child lock make this the ideal model for family kitchens.

"Poor Hob Surface"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good, good safety features

Cons: poor hob surface

"Havig had hobs of this nature in the past, we found that the general impression was of a good product. The touch controls work well and the safety features (auto shut off and child protection settings for example) were good.

It was a pity that the top has scratched quite badly whist emplyoing a normal cleaning regime (and after the top had been "seasoned").

Quite a good product in general but "marked down" in the overall rating because of the poor robustness of the hob surface."

"worth every penny"

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

"this was a replacement for a broken brand new and unused hob which was discontinued.

It's so good we are glad the other got broken.

This hob is beautifully made and exceeds expectation. We thoroughly recommend it. the purchase, customer service and delivery was simple and pain free."

"So stylish"

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

Cons: read the instructions well!

"Easy to install, and work out how to use, but it looks oh so lovely. I love the ease of the touch controls (even though I was a little too gentle with them at first). Heating times are fast, cooling times just as quick, and the varying ring sizes is ideal for any meal."
