      Worth checking out

      This silver toned cooker hob made and sold under the Belling brand is a hob we have bought twice in slightly different guises! There can be no better recommendation for an item, other than a happy customer who returned to buy a very similar item from the same brand. The only difference of any note between this model and the other is that the control dials on this model are slightly different from those on the other similar model which we had.

      I actually think that the model numbers may have been slightly different to the model number shown here too but cannot be 100% certain as we no longer have the other hob after our move. I can say however that the piccy shown here does look like the hob we bought exactly and shows it to be a simple and modern looking hob that is well designed to suit modern kitchens.

      **********************************************************
      We bought the hob as part of a promotional deal which included both the hob and a built under Belling oven. We paid an all in price for the hob, but you can expect to pay around £120 to £140 for the hob as a stand alone item. I feel that this is a fair price for a reliable hob which will suit an average sized family home/ kitchen.

      This Belling hob with its matt black effect control dials, looks very smart and I actually prefer it to the model with the silver dials, as the dials match the metal pan supports better. The metal powder coated black finished pan supports are well moulded and designed to support your cooking pans rather well.

      We have had one or two spills, due to clumsy chefs (tuts) but this was in no way a fault of the hob or pan supports. The supports and burner covers are both finished to a nice standard and are very easily washable in warm soapy water. There is no need to scrub them as long as you give them a nice 1/2 hour soak and then give them a chance to dry, finishing them off with a soft clean drying cloth.

      **********************************************************
      There are four burners on the hob and these include 2 x medium heat burners, 1 x small slow cook or simmer style burner and 1 x rapid cook (I am in a hurry and need to produce a meal) type burner. These are more than enough to cope with producing a family meal in a reasonable amount of time.

      All 4 burners can be controlled via the black control dials which are situated on the right hand as you face the hob. Each burner can be set to a variety of heats and can also be set to simmer by turning the control dial all the way around to the end setting.

      The hob has a simple to use one click flame ignition system that you need to have connected to an electrical socket. We have ours connected via a cable which is safely away from the hob, which is then controlled via a central power switch for the entire cooker. If the power is off the burner will not ignite without being lit by a match or safety lighter, but using the built in method is of course the safest way to light the burners.

      **********************************************************
      The main part of the body of the hob is made of a light but durable stainless steel. It has a slightly soft and brushed effect to it which looks rather nice. It can scratch rather deeply of you scrub the hob too harshly when cleaning, so you do need to think about how you can best clean the hob.

      I have found that a method which involves a mix of dish washer rinse aid and a dash of lemon juice mixed with a little water, not only lifts of any residual grease or spills left over from cooking, but also makes drying times quick too.

      Once the cleaning part is over I either spray a little furniture polish onto a soft cloth and give the stainless steel only a quick wipe over, or if the lustre is really lacking I use a tiny amount of baby oil on a soft cloth and go over the steel with that. I never clean the burners or finish them off in this way.

      **********************************************************
      Due to the fact that this is the second Belling hob we have used and liked I can only rate the hob with a full 5 stars. Its worked very well for us and still heats and cooks just as it did when new.

      Its a mid range priced hob and so does offer plenty of value for money. Best discounts are when you buy as part of a combo deal with an oven, but even as a stand alone item its worth checking out.
