We are having a kitchen extension done soon and thinking about appliances. It seems everyone (or nearly everyone) on here raves about induction hobs, but I used one on holiday a couple of years ago and wasn't that impressed. It seemed to heat things up too fast, catching the bottom of sauces and things. Also bleeped a lot. And I didn't like the touch button controls which you had to press down hard on - seemed like a faff compared with a twiddly knob. It WAS fab to keep clean.
Do you get used to the actual controls once you've had one a while? I'm wondering if it's just because I wasn't there long enough to get a good feel for what numbers certain things should be set to?
I love mine, but it is a free standing belling cooker. It has knobs instead of a touch screen. It has 9 heat settings, all very accurate with no hot spots. Life changing, so much better than our old electric one and much cleaner and safer than a gas hob.
