its great, BUT NOISY

Everything is great about this hob, apart from one thing - it is noisy. Saying this i mean really noisy, when cooling fan starts, and that happens if you have 1 heater running above 7, or 2 heaters at any setting. This annoying noise can be heard even from another room.

Neff Induction Hob

Takes some getting used to, but only had it a couple of days and have got to grips with it. Extremely fast to heat up. So easy to clean. Was going to stick to a gas hob until someone recommended induction. I would certainly recommend it too.

Not what I expected

There's a fair bit of misinformation across these reviews concerning this Hob where running it off a 13 amp plug is concerned Firstly, If you run it on a standard 13amp plug socket you can only use two rings max. I.E. One at 8 which is enough to boil something, the second at 4 which will get it luke warm / or 6 + 6 and both pans warm but certainly not boiling. You cant run 3 i.e. 4+4+4 So those reviews that are saying running it on a 13amp plug is possible and doesn't affect performance then I have to ask what exactly are you cooking??? Basically they must be using just one ring all there lives! The second issue, having then bit the bullet and got an electrician to put in a 32amp circuit in so I could use all four rings at once, as soon as you turn on the third ring the hob sounds like a ticking bomb (silent with two) with some relay somewhere going clank clank every 3 seconds. Seriously, it drives me crazy even when I'm next door in the Livingroom. And its not my pans they are top of the range stainless steel. Page 19 of the manual refers to this Rhythmical ticking on 3 rings or more, so 'its working as intended' So, if you plan to use one ring only all your life and want to make it look you know what you are doing with a four ring hob then its a great buy. But if like me you elevate your cooking to the dizzy heights of 3 rings or more, then ensure you have a 32 amp feed for it and buy a pair of ear defenders Oh, and just to clarify a couple others snipets people have posted on. You can turn off the beeping via accessing the basic settings page 15 + 16. Here you can also check your pans for suitability and set manually your power input if 13, 20 or 32amp. And lastly, yes you can turn off a ring without cycling thru it, press and hold the button for 3 seconds Personally, as I've now had the extra expense of putting in a 32 amp circuit I wished I had bought better

Not powerful enough

When the electrician unpacked this hob on arrival, he found it was 3KW power with a 13 amp plug, and in his experience customers using appliances with that power rating found that they could not use all 4 rings at once, they could only use 2 generally. He did not connect or test the hob to prove this, but has dealt with such issues a few times before and as I'd been unaware of these issues, I thought to write it up. I phoned AO to explain, and they were very helpful and allowed me to swap it for a different model with the required 7 - 7.5 Kw power rating. On the AO website you can check the power rating by clicking on the Installation button when looking at the item.

Looks great.

I have never used an induction hob before but I am so glad I did. This hob looks great! The pans heat up really quickly, and once you do turn the hob off the water stops boiling immediately. It is so easy to clean! When water or food splashes out the pan it doesn't burn to the hob which is great. It is quite noisy but overall it's a great product

Best service

Item received on the day it was seduced for delivery. Delivery guy was very friendly and waited few munited till I came back to open door for him. I haven't used the product yet so no comments in that

Smart and effective

Clean and neat and easy to use. Quick to heat up and easily controlled. Installed it easily myself.

Quality product

This is a fine looking hob which is much easier to clean than a normal hob. Next purchase will be a whistling kettle as it is so fast to boil water. Only one small negative is we would like one of the small rings at the front of the hob but that is just our preference.
