Overall score is based on:
Cooking performance (60%): We conduct 3 tests to assess the performance of the cooktops:
White sauce on the smallest element with the lowest setting:
This tests the cooktop’s ability to perform at a low temperature for a long time.
White rice on the medium-sized element:
This tests the “turndown” capacity of the element (starting on a high heat and reducing to a simmer) and whether it can maintain a suitable heat at the lowest temperature setting.
Beef and vegetable stir-fry on the large element:
This tests whether the cooktop can deliver continuous high heat.
Ease of use (40%): Rates the ease of using the controls, ease of cleaning, and the user-friendliness of the cooktop layout.

The burner layout is great - I’ve got lots of really big pots & the combination of the diamond with a few extra centimetres allows them room to breathe. At the same time, the grid lines are close enough together that I can use my teensiest espresso pot without it falling through the cracks.
The dials click satisfyingly into place and there’s excellent heat control on the burners, from very low to super hot.
Best of all, it’s a breeze to clean: the cast iron trivets are hinged so you can just lift them up & rest against the splashback. No need to remove them.
Nope, I love it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
