DO NOT BUY THIS HOB - It is unworkable
Amazing! I've also never before written a bad review about a Bosch product - here's my first, since this hob is unworkable and - as another reviewer says - possibly dangerous.
While induction hobs are sold as safe, quick and clean, there is really no excuse for such poor interface design. To control the front left zone, you have to touch the controller from 5 to 15 times. I can't imagine what prompted Bosch of all companies to use this interface, unless this was an entry to the market with a "lowest price point" segment in mind.
It might be no coincidence that Bosch have brought out a replacement (pie640E01e) last September.
I did buy it - and I regretted it immediately - not least that it was embarrassing to admit to my kids I couldn't work it (neither could they).
