Great size and looks good
Replaced my 60cm cooktop with this 70cm, fitted in my cutout only with a small alteration. Love the size, plenty of room for my pots. Heats up fast and has good temperature control. This cooktop is really easy to keep clean.

Cooking zone options
The Omega OCC70TZ ceramic cooktop is designed with 4 zones. The front right and rear left zones offer the same smaller size, at 165mm and with a 1200-watt energy output. The front left zone is a large size, at 200mm and a 1800W output.
The rear right burner is a little different, as it features a dual heat ring. This means you have the option to choose from 2 sizes; either 135mm and 1000W, or 225mm and 2200 watts.
Close placement can be too close for comfort
The rear right zone cooking zone is the largest zone by 25mm. While this is an appealing option, the front and rear cooking zones on the right are placed closely together.
If you’re putting a large saucepan or pot on the rear right zone - on the outer heat ring - it may easily bump up against a smaller pot at the front. This may not be a problem if you can instead put that same pot on the rear left zone. However if you often cook using all four zones, this may soon become inconvenient.
This Omega cooktop’s timer function works in two ways. The first feature is a minute minder, which sounds an alarm when the timer has finished counting down to zero.
The second feature is a timer equipped with an auto shut-off feature. When the timer has reached the end of its pre-programmed number of minutes, the cooking zone will automatically be switched off.
This feature lets you lock the control panel, so that even if children play around with the digital controls, it won’t result in an accident.
