I've had one of these for over a year now and use it every day as my main stove top. I'm very happy with how well it works. It heats up quickly and is easy to clean. The only problem I had with it is that the numbers wore off the dials so you couldn't tell what temperature you were on. I contacted Aldi and they were brilliant about sorting it out. I expect their latest product (on sale 11 November 2015) would have this fault corrected.
