Smeg brings you style and efficiency with this 5 plate induction hob. Combine heat zones or let the hob detect the size of your pan for optimum heat.
How big is this hob?
This hob is quite wide as it has 5 heat zones. The dimensions are:
Depth: 510 mm
Height: 50 mm
Width: 860 mm
What about the controls?
This hob has lovely modern touch control buttons to the front – easy to reach and use.
Each cooking zone has 9 power settings and a Power Boost function. By selecting this option, the power increases which reduces your cooking time. The large central zone has a larger power boost for even quicker cooking.
The controls also include a timer for each zone, so you can set each pan to exactly the time you want.
The control panel comes with a safety lock so it can’t be turned on by accident, or by curious children. It also has an automatic safety shut off function so the hob will turn itself off if left unattended for an extended period.
Each heat zone automatically detects the size and position of your pots and pans, and heats up the exact spots where they stand, providing optimum heat distribution and efficiency. This allows several pans to be used at once, large or small, offering greater flexibility.
How can I tell which zone is still hot?
This hob comes with residual heat indicators – a great safety feature so you’ll always know which heat zone is still hot. The indicators glow red, letting you know if the hob is unsafe to touch.
What is an induction hob?
Induction hobs uses electromagnetic fields to generate instant heat between the hob and pan. They focus the warmth just on the bottom of the pan, which means they don’t lose any heat – so you don’t waste any energy. They’re as responsive as gas hobs, but much easier to clean.
Please note only pans with ferrous (magnetic base) can be used with this hob. These also include pans with iron, enamelled steel and special stainless steel pans depending on the alloy. Pans with copper or glass bases are not suitable for induction hobs.
