Hobs can be installed in combination with a cooker. The hob is then controlled via the cooker operating unit.
Hob meets cooker
A separate hob has its own operating element, its own mains connection and can thus be integrated into a worktop completely independently of the oven.
Induction hobs only generate heat where it is actually needed – directly underneath the pan. This improves energy efficiency and allows things to be brought to the boil faster. Overcooked foods no longer burn on.
When you cook with gas, heat is created by an open flame. The heat is transmitted directly to the base of the pan. To be able to use gas hobs, your kitchen must be connected to the gas supply.
Electric hobs, such as ceramic hobs, transmit heat via a heating coil to the ceramic plate, which then warms the bottom of the pan.
Flush-installed hobs are ideal for stone worktops, but can also be installed in wooden tops if an installation frame is used. Frames are available as special accessories.
