    Broke after approx 2.5yrs

    Nice looking and easy to use, but 3mths out of warranty its packed up, NEFF want to charge £109 call out plus parts to fix it. Very disappointing as i thought i was buying a quality reliable brand, NEFF customer service very unhelpful, never again will i buy NEFF. Searching online looks like others have had problems with NEFF induction hobs just out of warranty, so be warned.

    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

    Can only actively power two rings at a time

    When using more than 2 rings at a time, it only actually uses 2 at any one time, switching which 2 are on every couple of seconds. You can visibly see when cooking that it can't sustain a consistent temperature on any ring. Couldn't see any mention of this when buying the product, would have opted for something else had I known. It's very good when using only 1 or 2 rings as this switching doesn't happen.


    I replaced a 12-year-old Neff induction hob that had been great, so I chose Neff again, thinking I was doing a like-for-like replacement. But this new one makes noise when it is heating up. I don't know if they think it is a safety feature? But I prefer my old, completely silent one!!

    Not entirely satisfied

    The largest induction zone is at the front and the smallest at the back, therefore I have to lean over a large saucepan/steamer in order to make sauce/gravy in a small saucepan. It seems quite slow to boil water for vegetables unless I use boost in which case not all zones are usable. The hob is labeled as 3700W so I have changed the factory settings of the power management function to 3500W and it is a little better. When another pan is used the control settings change, resulting in things going off the boil and me having keep changing the heat settings to boil the water again. Also I would prefer the zones to be circles rather than dotted lines, but that was my fault for choosing it. My last induction hob (a different make) seemed much easier to manage.


    A bit disappointing. I probably should have spent a bit more. This hob looks good and heats up quickly. However it makes a strange buzzing sound if two rings are on at a high heat at the same time. I find the controls a bit awkward as the etching is faint so hard to see. You also have to tap your way (while it bleeps at you) to the heat setting you want. No quick way to turn one ring off, again have to tap your way down to zero to do that. Still haven't figured out how the lock feature works, it doesn't seem to do anything. If it hadn't been for Covid I would have shopped around in showrooms to find one I liked. As it is I just went on price and the good reviews this had.

    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.
