    Product Overview

    For powerful and efficient cooking, this large induction hob from Whirlpool is ideal. It has 8 spacious zones which use electromagnets to efficiently heat cookware rather than the hob surface. Thanks to the residual heat indicator, you’ll never have to worry about accidents as it lets you know when the surface is still warm after use. If you need more room to prepare larger meals, Flexizone lets you adapt the cooking space to suit larger pans too – great if you’re cooking a hearty casserole. This model also has a brilliant SmartSense feature – simply select your meal and clever sensors will set the ideal temperature and cooking time. This will help you perfect every dish, and with the handy display giving step-by-step guidance too, you can master every recipe.

    Features we love

    6th Sense tech

    This Whirlpool hob has clever 6th Sense technology. During cooking, sensors monitor the temperature of your pans and give it a boost if it’s needed. These sensors will also automatically reduce the temperature if it detects the pan is too hot.

    For faster and safer meal prep

    With induction technology, you’ll never be waiting long to tuck in. Once the electromagnets inside the hob have connected with the ones in your pans, heat will be sent directly to your cookware rather than the whole surface. No more accidents. This is much more efficient, quicker and easier – giving you delicious dishes without the painful clock watching.

    Stay flexible in the kitchen

    This hob includes Whirlpool’s super handy Flexi Full technology, letting you use the entire surface for cooking. It works by detecting your pan’s shape and size, automatically adjusting the settings whenever you switch zones so you can freely move things around whenever you need to. That means you can squeeze in a couple of extra pots if you’re whipping up a feast for a big family gathering.

    Save the scrubbing for the kitchen floor

    We’ve all experienced the painstaking scrubbing of a filthy hob, but not anymore with Whirlpool’s iXelium protection treatment. Thanks to this layer, the stovetop stays scratch and smear-free. With just a splash of water and soft cloth you can revive a sparkling clean surface. 

    Your favourite recipes at a glance

    Enjoy a more futuristic cooking experience with My Smart Display. Whirlpool’s 6th Sense Live app allows you to send recipes straight to the appliance’s display from your smartphone. Follow the method step-by-step without dirtying the pages of your favourite cookery books and create delicious meals with clear instructions right before your eyes.

    Tips for measuring up

    When measuring for an induction hob, the depth and height are usually standard, so you should focus on measuring the width – it’ll be between 60 and 90cm. Also, you need to make sure no cupboards will hang over the hob, and that there’s at least 65cm between the hob and your cooker hood. Learn more with our guide.

    Whirlpool Induction Hob

    5/5
    Not fitted, but looks great. Can't wait to use it
    Zoe

    Feature packed, but usability could have improved a little

    4/5
    Love the flexibility of merging zones up to 4 total, but also use the whole area as a single zone. The assist function needs some retry as it burned by eggs but it is also trye i started with an already warm pan so i have to say the temperature regulation must have been off a bit. Main issue i have is the security capacitive button. It is simply too easy for it to be pressed (water spill, etc.) and being just one button, is quite often triggered. They should have made it lock the hob only when pressed in combination with another button! Other than that, super happy i can now use my largest pans on it. It cooks evenly, and has 18 different heat gradients so it is very configurable. However is difficult to quickly set it at a specific number as it is not numbered scale.

    Great product, takes a bit of getting used to but now I wouldn’t be without it. The instructions could be clearer the on/off button is on the front to the left of the dispenser

      Get your new hob fitted the same day it’s delivered. Our engineers will disconnect your old appliance before getting your new one set up. We'll give your new appliance a full health check to ensure it’s safe and ready to use straight away.

    • Remove & Recycle

      £20

      If you’ve bought a new appliance but you don’t want us to connect it for you, all you’ll need to do is disconnect your old one, empty it and place it by the entrance of your property, ready for us to pick up. Or, if you’ve ordered our connection service with a new appliance, we’ll disconnect your old one for you.

      If you haven’t bought a new appliance, we can still collect your old one and take it away for recycling. However, as we won’t be able to come into your home to disconnect it, you’ll need to make sure it’s by the entrance to your property, ready for us to pick up. Our experts will recycle it safely and responsibly in our state-of-the-art facility.

      The cost of our Remove & Recycle service goes towards safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are primarily covered by the product manufacturer.

      Also, while we’re picking up your appliance, if you’ve got any smaller kitchen electricals that need recycling – such as kettles, toasters or blenders – we’ll happily take those away too at no extra charge. Just pass them to your driver when we’re picking up your larger appliance.
