Looks Great But Its Just a Gas Stove in the End
Been using the F&P CG604DX1 on LPG for 6 months and its a gas stove and it does what a gas stove does.
It looks great, its looks are probably the biggest selling point. It gives our new kitchen a more premium feel.
The burners are set on the outside thirds of the cooktop which is part of the look of the stove, with the cast iron grates reflecting this. It took a lot of practise to get pots & pans centred over the burner. The shape of the grates make it hard to find the centre.

Questions & Answers
This is the black Model CG604DNGGB4.
I have just had this model installed and have used it a few times. I have an issue with the Wok burner. The USER guide says "When using the dual wok burner, you can choose to USE THE INNER BURNER ONLY or both the inner and outer burners as desired."
I bought this model expecting this but found that it does not operate like this at all. When setting the inner ring both the inner and outer ring remain alight. Admittedly the level goes down but they are still both alight. This is very disappointing.
I contacted F&P but they would not answer the question as to whether or not this was correct - that the WOK burner does not do what the manual says. Their only response was to pass me on to a third party service company who also would not answer the question and would only send a service technician out at my cost if they did not find anything wrong. My neighbour has a new Bosch hob that works like I would expect - on low only the centre burner - on high both.
Has anyone had a better response from F&P. Why can't they answer a simple question? Not happy, having spent $1,400 on what I thought would be something that would work as stated in their user guide.
