We have had our induction cooktop for around 18 months. Cracks have appeared spontaneously on both front corners of the cooktop. There was no event to cause this. Siemens eventually organised for a technician to take some photos. Even the tech said that it wasn't uncommon for there to be undetectable cracks in the glass tops. I have just had a message back today saying that Bosch/Siemens do not consider my problem a manufacturing fault and therefore will not cover the glass top under warranty. Why have a 5 year warranty then? It is worth no...thing. I am disinclined to purchase another glass top in case the same thing happens again. We are now very sorry we have purchased a Siemens product and would caution anyone considering one. They work fine but we think there is a design flaw as the glass tapers down to the front and the metal support also tapers away either causing the corners of the glass to become vulnerable to cracking or this might be the metal supports themselves causing this. Be warned, the glass top isn't as toughened as they would have you believe. Either way, customer service couldn't be less interested. We should've stayed with Miele- superior product, excellent customer service.
this induction cooktop works very well
I sort of know going in that there are some of my pots won't work with induction stove and there is this . "buzzing" sound when it is on high power.... given that... here is my review.
1/ Generally rather fast - and responsive when I turn it down. OK, we did race it to boil 2 liter of water it is still slower than my electric kettle by 45 seconds.
2/ The flexizone seems like a good idea, however, I have yet to find a vessel long enough to cover a 2 zone to take advantage of it.
3/ the touchSlider works suprisingly well and responsive and I love the timer function that is rather easy to control.
4/ I enjoy using power level 1 to keep sauces warm
