    Love these induction jobs. Very quick commands and cooks throughout compared to cheaper ones I've had before

    Impressed so far

    5/5
    It’s more expensive than other hobs but I liked the look of it and also bought the cooker hood to use the hob to hood (although not used that part yet as just had kitchen refit so not connected up yet!) Love the fact there are no knobs and just changed by touch, so looks very modern. Like the timer function on it as my husband often had a habit of forgetting to turn our old one off! Much better than my old ceramic one in that the heat is adjusted much better and quicker. Being able to join the zones is very handy when I’m using my big Stockpots. Hoping that over time the glass surface doesn’t get scratched but I’m going to buy new pots/pans to prevent that. Pleased with it so far, look forward to getting more use out of it.

    What a Piece of Equipment This Is!!!

    5/5
    The Zanussi ZIFN844K Induction Hob is a very sleek, easy and efficient to use and well performing professional hob. This is my first time owning and using an induction hob, I had some reservations about how different, better or worse it would perform vs a traditional gas hob and I am pleased to report that it is significantly better in all areas. Firstly the unit heats up very quickly, and even has a PowerBoost mode to make each zone heat quicker, which is just amazing, it is also so slick looking and important to me it is very easy to clean with no buttons or knobs thanks to it’s fully automated touch controls. The performance was excellent, it exceeded my expectations when compared to my old gas hob, and the auto power cut off timer function is so useful and it is so very quiet as well. I Like the fact that if you own a compatible extractor, the hob can even control that too based on its function mode and this is something that I have already purchased and it also features a dual zone allowing you to use wider pans with the hob extending its heating zone to accommodate the wider panels. The design has it all covered, it is truly a joy to cook with and to use, and best of all it looks stunning in my new kitchen. An added and extra bonus is the cooking time with the induction hob, it is a lot faster and it will therefore save money on the ever increasing electric bills. I really like that. What I did not like is the cost of the induction ready pans, these are a lot more expensive, but they are good quality and will last a very long time. It is just a note to those buying this excellent hob, that it needs special induction pans, and these come at a higher cost than normal pans. Aside from that I cannot recommend it enough.

    Fantastic hob - easy cleaning and great cooking!

    5/5
    I have been a huge fan of induction cooking now for about a year. After moving into a new house and having to leave my induction hob behind, I was faced with using gas again. Now I used to love cooking with gas, but once you try induction, you’ll never look back. I managed about three weeks in the new house with the Zanussi gas hob before I gave up and ordered the new Zanussi Induction hob. I especially like this one as it has various zones to choose from and the ability to combine two to make an even larger cooking zone - brilliant! This induction hob was easy to install with the help of a local and trusted electrician. It looks incredible on my work top and has given me the feeling of extra space as it’s a flat surface! And wow, it is so easy to clean… after cooking some meals, I was worried that I had ruined my induction hob as my pans had left ring marks - but by simply using a gentle cream cleanser the marks magically disappeared and the hob looks brand new again. This is a common issue but easily rectified with the right cleaning products. I’m so happy to be back using induction cooking. I highly recommend Zanussi products especially this hob.

    Huge and efficient

    5/5
    Huge and efficient induction hob. Great for bigger family. Easy to cook in large pots and pans together which was nightmare with standard size hob owned before. Easy to connect and clean but would be nice if power cable was included.

    A bit expensive but otherwise Neat and simple.

    4/5
    Before you read the title "Neat and Simple" and take that to maybe be a bit of a shallow description, I will point out this is an induction hob, not an oven or washing machine, it has one purpose which is to heat the object you place on it at a specific speed, so to be neat and simple is to get the job done in the least obtrusive, most efficient way possible. which this hob does. The reason i decided to try a new hob was simple, I had an existing induction hob that was a standard square 1/2meter square model, Functionally it was essentially identical, but practically, I couldn't cook with large pans or multiple pans due to everything being squashed together. The Zanussi simple fixes this issue by taking a 4 plate hob and spacing things out nicely whilst also enlarging the existing zones to allow for larger implements. PROS: From a design perspective, it is clean, no bells and whistles hob that does its job. it heats my pans quickly and is easy to clean. It was very simple to install, I traced around the base of the hob, cut the hole into the countertop with a jigsaw, then dropped it in and sealed it up, no hassle. CONS: the interface is primitive, to the point it can be confusing to know what is going on because they scrimped money on the display so you only get single letter notifications and you need to know from memory what things do or mean. Overall there is little that needs to be said past this: It is a large induction hob that give plenty of room for even ambitious cooking projects in a large home. Being a glass surface it is very easy to clean when the inevitable spills happen. The Cost is higher than I would like for the feature set but it is not outrageous. The interface is a dated design I see even on 10year old induction units. it is easy to install and works reliably.
