As part of its newly launched collection of eco-friendly induction appliances, leading kitchen appliance brand, Belling has launched two new induction hobs with unique features and a choice of touch or rotary controls.
Building on the success of the PBi60 hob launched last year, Belling has created the PBi60 mk2, a 60cm induction hob with a totally unique touch control ‘temperature slider’.
The stylish and precise temperature slider allows the consumer to accurately adjust the temperature setting of each induction zone simply by running a finger from left to right – the ultimate in controllability.
In addition to the touch slider, the PBi60 mk2 has a digital display and griddle function. For cooking on a high heat, the PBi60 mk2 has a power boost setting which allows the user to ‘borrow’ power from another cooking zone when a burst of additional heat is required.
Boasting an impressive 18 features, the PBi60 mk2 is built to handle those unexpected interruptions, offering a pause button which automatically cuts power and a recall button that instantly restores the hob’s previous settings so that the cook can pick up exactly where they left off.
Offering complete peace of mind, the PBi60 mk2 incorporates a ‘Safety shutdown’ function which automatically turns off all cooking zones if the hob is left unattended for a long period and ‘Overheat pan protection’ which employs sensor technology to shut down an unattended hob before reaches a dangerous temperature.
The second of the two launches is the PBi60R, the first 60cm 4 burner rotary induction hob on the UK market, combining induction technology with the simplicity of rotary controls.
In addition to simple and intuitive knob control, the PBi60R boasts innovative features including safety shutdown, overheat pan protection and power boost.
The Belling PBI hobs will both be manufactured in Britain as part of Glen Dimplex Home Appliances’ commitment to home-grown innovation. GDHA is now the only manufacturer of built in ovens and hobs, freestanding cookers and range cookers still committed to UK manufacture across all of these categories. Across its three cooking brands, Stoves, Belling and New World, GDHA now manufactures over 75 per cent of its products in the UK and has committed to increasing this over coming months.
