Would not buy it agian

This product certianly looked very nice to start with but the quality of the finish is extremley poor. After only a few months the surface is covered in small scratches, despite the extreme care we take of it. In fact we feel this is so poor that we will be writing to the manufacturers. On the positive side, the burners give good control over the heat. Cleaning is not paricularly easy and the caps that fit on the burners don't seat very well, so after cleaning we often get an uneven flame. The knobs have to be held in rather longer than seems necessary in order for the burners to saty alight. Overall I think Siemens have some work to do to bring this prodiuct up to their normal standards
