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.

It is white enamel and not stainless steel. It works sometimes
Within 2 weeks of being fitted the gas would intermittently cut out on the large wok burner during cooking. After 4 weeks this problem reoccurred and another ring would not light easily - around a 10 second ignition time. After 6 weeks I needed another fault attending to - the gas burners refused to light on 2 other points despite repeated clicking. After 8 weeks the first fault was back, After 10 weeks we had 2 more faults and some of the original ones reoccurring. I've even been at the point where the ignitor randomly clicks and had a gas ring that refused to turn off. DANGEROUS!
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
