You’ll love the flexibility and advanced technology of the AEG HK6542H0FB induction hob, with 4 sections for maximum heat, a powerful booster and front ‘direktouch’ controls for direct access to your desired cooking level. Ultra-efficient induction works by creating a magnetic field between the hob and steel or iron pan. The heat is instant; it is easily controlled and energy efficient. Surfaces are very easy to clean and the bevelled edge design ensures no trapped dirt. At the touch of a finger, you have instant access to the hob’s controls and immediate control to select the precise level of heat you need. An intelligent AutoMax function brings the zone up to the boil and then reduces it to the pre-selected power level for the remainder of the cooking time. The HK6542H0FB responds as soon as the pan touches the hob, immediately heating it to the right temperature. An Öko Timer enables you to use energy more efficiently by using the hob’s residual heat during the last few minutes of the cooking process. A handy CountUp timer enables you to closely monitor the progress of each dish. It starts at zero and keeps counting up until you stop or reset it. 15-stage digital power level displays keep you informed at all times. For each heat zone, an OptiHeat Control tracks the level of residual heat, so you can make the most of your remaining heat and optimise your energy usage. A stop and go with keep warm setting is ideal when your cooking is interrupted as this will resume to previously selected settings. The Auto Safety Off switch means that if a cooking zone is left on, the power automatically cuts out after a set period. A control lock and child lock tops off this model.
