    Fantastic, feature rich and flexible induction hob

    5/5
    This Hisense Induction Hob has been fantastic and is so much more responsive, flexible and efficient compared to our previous ceramic hob - definitely wish we had converted over to induction a lot sooner! The hob itself has an amazing array of helpful features, including the iq programmes that help with a number of cooking features like super fast boiling with large pans of water, searing and melting options. The automatic pan detection makes placing and setting a temperature so easy and convenient, as well as the pause all cooking and recall if someone comes to the door or the phone goes. There's also some really nice touches like the option to move a pan backwards or forwards on the hob to adjust the temperature, and automatic child lock so you don't forget to lock the hob when you power off to stop naughty cats in our case from reactivating it! The flex zones to join together both the front and back hob sections on both sides (left and right) of the hob has also been so useful for large pans or even multiple pans as well as metal trays to cook. The finesse of the control and heat as well as how quickly the pans can heat is nothing short of amazing compared to a ceramic hob - it has all of the control and precision of gas (if not more) yet at a much higher efficiency too - we've actually stopped using our electric kettle as a metal kettle on this hob can boil water faster than the electric kettle ever could. There can be some perhaps very unnerving or unusual noises when you first switch to induction too, such as a vibration or almost 'electrical' humming type noise - this is only noticeable when using the hob on a very high or extreme setting and usually a large pan of liquid - but it is completely normal and you do get used to it. It isn't overly loud at all either, just perhaps a little unusual compared to gas and ceramic counterparts. The hob also cleans very easily if things should spill and overall it looks very smart compared to some of the other alternatives - the display and a lot of the buttons are actually hidden until you power on the hob and select certain options which isn't shown very well in some of the photos - making it a very minimalistic when powered off and a very 'clean' look to the top of it. Probably the most difficult part of switching to this induction hob has been replacing some of our pans to be induction compatible but it is well worth the effort to do so. I couldn't recommend this Hisense induction hob enough though, and I am so pleased with the quality, features and efficiency of it - if you ever doubted induction, trust me it's worth it - especially with this hob!

    Great value, great features!

    I've been using this hob for a couple of weeks now, and so far it has been great. It's my first time using induction, so I can't speak to it versus other models, but compared to my old solid plate hob, it is amazing. If you can't have gas, it's a great alternative (though I had to invest in some induction converters for my non-magnetic cookware). Don't be put off by the reasonable price. While the controls are easy to use, it comes with lots of features usually associated with higher priced models, and they work very well. For example, the left and right sides can be easily bridged for larger pans (I had no problem with pan detection even with only the edge of a single pan sitting over the centre point of each burner). When the hob is turned off a red H is illuminated in any zones that are still hot. While it doesn't have true sensing when something comes to a boil, automatically reducing to a simmer, it does have something called automatic rapid heating. You choose the power level you want, and by holding the level down for a few seconds it will start on the highest setting for a set amount of time (there is a table in the manual that tells you how long) and then automatically reduces the heat, keeping it from boiling over. With a bit of experimentation I had this working very well. Lots of other features if you want them, but those were the ones important to me. Also, so easy to clean! I bought an induction hob protector to keep it from scratching and it works great with that too. So far, I would definitely recommend this hob.

    We moved and inherited a ceramic hob. Hated it on sight and found it very difficult to get used to after having an Induction hob for the previous 5 years. So when one if the main use rings went on the ceramic hob I couldn't wait to get a new one. The Hisense isn't the mist expensive but it's fabulous. Love the bridged zone ability and the fact that you dont have to click up and down on the settings to get the level you want. Just press the number. It's responsive, clean and easy to use. Looks great too.

    Bought it to replace an old faulty induction hob. This is Easy to use and easy to clean. Still trying to figure out what all the symbols mean but so far no problems! The guys fitted it in pretty quickly and showed me the basics on how to use it! No complaints on my end so far! Great price for a great hob!

    New Hob

    5/5
    What a change from my old ceramic hob. Control and response is so quick. Brings pans to the boil so quick with the boost function. And the able to keep at a constant simmer without boiling over. Great for searing food ang getting a crispy skin on fish. Linking two zones is a great feature for my large casserole pan. what a difference from my old ceramic hob.

    5/5
    This induction hob replaced a failing ceramic halogen hob from a well respected brand, and fitted easily into the same worktop. It saves time by heating a pan so quickly, it saves energy because the heat is in the pan not the hob. It's easier to clean - no more burnt on residues. Most importantly though, it's improved my cooking skills, frying, rapid boiling, simmering, reheating and keeping things warm are all so much easier. Initially the range of features seemed daunting, but after a few days the controls seem so simple and the hob so much fun to use that take-out meals are a thing of the past in my household. I'm impressed. Seven (out of five) stars!!
