For both contemporary and stylish cooking, look no further than the Smeg SE2951TC2 ceramic hob. This extra wide hob is an ocean of black glass, which is completely unblemished by pan supports or control dials. The sheer surface means cleaning is a breeze and your kitchen work surfaces remain completely uncluttered.
There are five separate hot zones on the SE2951TC2 and this much room means you will always find space for your pots and pans, even the big bulky ones. Naturally the centre zone is the largest, so whether you’re cooking for a crowd or just have a few hefty portions for you and your other half, it’s a rapid way to get some fantastic food on the go.
The controls are all touch operated and require the lightest brush of your finger to summon up some serious heat. It’s easy as pie to use, but if you’re worried about a mischievous hand playing havoc with your settings, the child lock feature is a great way to ensure no-one messes with your fine-tuned cooking.
The SE2951TC2 is actually pretty safety conscious, as well as stylish. The residual heat indicator means you’re always going to have a heads up as to which zones are still hot to the touch; no burns, no bother.
