Great Hob, however...

Went from a ceramic hob to induction (gas upgrade not possible), its a fantastic hob! Had to change all pans too but was overdue. The only reason I knocked off 1 star because the instructions state the hob comes pre wired, but there was no cable supplied. In terms of performance the closest cooking experience to a gas hob possible. Instructions great but very intuitive touch buttons, great for cleaning as there are no raised switches and the is a subtle angled bezel around the edge of the hob. The bridge zone is good for larger pans and rapid boil. Would recommend this hob and AO.

Looks good, some irritations

Ok so the hob does what it's meant to, well. As with most AEG things the installation instructions are poor. The hob itself is relatively straightforward to use but it's designed to be minimalist so the controls aren't self-explanatory. Unlike my previous induction hob, if your pans aren't ferrous enough it won't entertain trying to heat them, just gives an error message which is useful I suppose. Seems to have a mind of its own so will change your settings to "automatic" for some reason but to be fair maybe it knows what it's doing better than me. It also beeps annoyingly if you have a small kitchen and rest things on it from time to time. All that said, I was really impressed how quickly it heated food up compared to my previous hob which has to be the most important thing. IMPORTANT you need a 40 amp circuit for this. If you're not replacing an existing hob you won't have one and will need to get it installed by an electrician. Factor than into the cost if you're switching from gas to induction.

Does everything I need

This is my first induction hob and I'm not disappointed. The heat is fast and even. The high temperatures are very hot. There's also a low range that I've not found a use for. The scale is 1-14 (+a boost), but the lowest I use is generally 5. I'm giving this 4 stars (rather than 5) for only two reasons. - The hob areas aren't large enough for my largest pan. I have a 30cm frying pan, probably 26-28cm on the base, and this doesn't fit in the cooking area. - The cooking areas are marked with a cross, which means you can only tell if a pan is central by picking it up. I'm uncertain if the pan detection means it needs to be central or not though, so maybe I'm worrying needlessly. But these are just quibbles, food cooks fine regardless, even to the edges of the very large pan.

Our first induction

Marvellous. So quick, easy to clean and have AEG hood too so they talk to each other. Fantastic.

New Hob

Having always had gas cookers throughout my entire marriage, this was a complete step away from my comfort zone. However, I am really pleased I did. I love this hob. It’s easy to use, easy to keep clean and looks fabulous. Yes I would definitely recommend it.

Excellent hob and great service from AO

The hob is amazing. Moved from a ceramic hob to this and it is like a dream. Responsive heat, we no longer have oans bubbling over, easy to set the heat levels too with a point or slide of your finger. Simple to install as a replacement for the old hob and looks great in situ. Some of pans have a habit of 'singing' on high power settings, but there is plenty of info in the manual to let you know that it may happen and why. This is our first induction hob and I'm really impressed.

Great induction hob!

I really enjoy cooking on the AEG induction hob. It has all the benefits of an induction hob plus more. The power boost button brings water to boil quicker than my kettle, and each cook field can be timed separately. I love that two of the fields connect, it will come in very handy for those big family meals.
