Product Overview

Heats up really quickly. All the heat zones on the AKM359/NE have Quicklight technology which ensures they heat up in seconds -perfect if you’re cooking a hot stir fry. The ceramic surface is extremely smooth to easily wipe away any spillages. The solid rotary controls are fairly chunky to easily grab and turn – great if you don’t have the most nimble fingers. For extra safety the zones become red when you turn them on so you’ll know not to touch them.

    Disappointing

    "Two main factors that would suggest that you best look elsewhere for an electric hob. 1. There is no indication that a ring is hot once it is turned off which could be a lot safer. 2. The hob is difficult to clean. I have carefully tried to clean the hob after every use without success. The previous hob took five years to look as bad as this hob does after two weeks."

    Good buy

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

    "Wanted knobs instead of touch panel, as not so much of a problem if I spill anything on it. Not as efficient as the old hob, but it does the job OK."
