Combine zones to cook more

This hob can easily cope when you’re cooking large amounts – or simply with bigger pans. Just touch the Bridge button to link and control two cooking zones together to fit any large or long pan. Sharing the same temperature and time setting, the linked zones are ideal when you’re cooking for dinner parties or bigger celebrations.

Crystal Line. Built to your standard

Crystal Line provides the flexibility to customise cooking surfaces in your kitchen. Choose from different modules, including teppanyaki grill or induction wok hob, and afford your guests the highest calibre of entertainment. With professional-grade apparatus, at home.

Cooking zones automatically illuminate. With ActiveTouch

When a pan is set down on the hob, the corresponding slider control will automatically light up for cooking clarity. Intuitive sensors detect which zone you intend to use. Which means the only thing you need to do is set your desired temperature by swiping over the interface with a finger.

Every pan. Automatically detected

When a pot or pan is placed on the hob, the corresponding touch-sensitive control module will illuminate. Providing total clarity and ease of use. For better cooking.

Hob timer. Built for precision

The built in hob timer can be set up to one hour, and will automatically power the hob down when it elapses. For effortlessly precise results.
