Baumatic Hob - Sleek and Modern
Member Name: rachelandgromit
Advantages: Easy to clean and glass looks modern
Disadvantages: Pan supports not practical
I have one of these which has been fitted onto my new Wickes kitchen and granite worktop. My main reason for picking one of these hobs were that it is gas on a piece of black glass which I thought looked far more elegant than on stainless steel and also hopefully much more easier to clean. I am not disappointed.
The glass looks very sleek, similar to that of electric halogen hobs and if you burn or spill something it easily wipes away as appose to scratching the stainless steel on conventional gas hobs. The controls also look modern and have an auto-ignite on them. I also like them being at the bottom as oppose to the side of the hob.
On a negative, the pan supports don't seem all that well balanced and if you are trying to place a large pan/wok on them it doesn't seem to support them well, but this is a small sacrifice to pay. I did find these hobs alot more expensive than other stainless steel ones available but the look is what it is all about for me and everyone comments on it.
Summary: It's all about the look
