Smeg SE2773CX2 Ceramic Hob
With 9 temperature settings you get a really precise temperature control over your cooking. And with the booster function and quick start on each zone you can get up to the desired temperature seriously quickly. You certainly won’t need to use the kettle to get the water boiling.
Safety won’t be an issue with this hob as each zone has a residual heat indicator to keep you from touching or putting anything on the zone while still hot. The automatic safety cut-out prevents the hob being left on for a prolonged amount of time and the wafer thin frame helps to keep any spillages within the realms of the hob, not on your kitchen work surface.
Cleaning is a dream with this hob. The Suprema black ceramic glass is super smooth, making it hard for dirt and grease to stick. You’ll simply need to wipe with warm soapy water and the muck glides away, giving you more time to relax instead of cleaning.
The varying sizes of the heat zones are a massive benefit; with the larger zones you’re able to use large pans for stews on cold winter evenings. It’s also great if you’re a fan of using a fish kettle, which produces the most succulent of seafood dishes. The smaller zone with the ultra low temperature setting is great for simmering or gently warming milk if you have little ones. And it has a width of 75cm - giving you a lot of cooking space to play with.
