    We’re still delivering to our customers safely. Since the latest Government advice, we’ve had to make a few changes. If you’re self-isolating then we’re now only able to deliver products to your doorstep. Otherwise, we’ll come into your home but only deliver to behind your main door.

    We’ll deliver any product to your home, 7 days a week.

    • We schedule deliveries from 7am until 7pm.
    • You can choose a paid morning or afternoon delivery timeslot when you checkout.
    • Free delivery is also available.
    • We’ll text you a 4 hour timeslot on the morning of your delivery.

    Services Connection, Remove & Recycle
    • Connection £105.00

      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 £20.00

      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.

    Product Overview

    Effortlessly prepare your favourite meals with this large induction hob from Whirlpool. It has 8 zones which use electromagnets to directly heat the base of your pans rather than the hob surface for efficient cooking. The residual heat indicator shows you when the hob is still hot, so it’s really safe to use. If you’re having friends over and need additional cooking space, Flexizone gives you the versatility to adapt the zones to suit larger pans too. It also has a fantastic SmartSense feature which will set the ideal temperature and cooking time after you’ve selected your dish. This will help you perfect every recipe, and thanks to the handy display’s step-by-step guidance, you can cook delicious meals every time.

    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.

    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.

    Smarter cooking at your fingertips

    The SmartCook feature on this hob is like having your own personal sous-chef on hand to offer advice. Using the handy built-in touchscreen, you can get step-by-step instructions on how to prepare dishes based on what you want to make, when it should be ready by, and even which oil you plan to use. That means mouth-watering meals simmered to perfection every time are only a button press away.

    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 hob

    5/5
    Great hob lots of technology and also user friendly ! Also looks the part the in the kitchen
    Tony

    Not a good Hob

    1/5
    This Hob is too sensitive and has too many features that are not easy to navigate. I had a problem with the touch control which would sometimes come on but mostly wouldn't which was very frustrating and then would ping on when I wasn't near it . The only good thing is that it looked great .I have exchanged for a simpler Hob .
    Carol

    Amazing induction hob

    5/5
    This hob looks amazing, brought as we have a new kitchen and needed a larger hob to replace or old one. Looks stylish and has a good range of options for cooking with large and small pans. Very happy with this purchase. Delivery was good and arrived quickly.

    Great product, especially the 8 zones!

    5/5
    Great to have 8 zones as you can fit lots of different size pans on.
    Tom Molmans

    Elegant design

    5/5
    Great product well worth the money I can see now why it was out of stock when I wanted it I’m glad I waited for it to come back into stock Tip it’s always waiting that little bit longer for something you want and will last a good few years
    Pierre

    Family of five

    5/5
    I love having so many cooking zones! Having researched induction hobs for weeks I settled on this product. It has not let me down. Easy to clean and it looks fantastic on my new island. Having used a Neff induction hob in my previous house I was a bit unsure about Whirlpool as a make but all seems good so far.
