Glass ceramic hob with two induction plates
Product description
Glass ceramic hobs, which are 60 cm wide, consisting of two electrical plates and two induction plates. The appliances in question have numbers at the top left-hand corner or at the left-hand side of the glass.

Information on the appliances can be found on the Internet at <a class="lien" href="www.service-management-web.com">www.service-management-web.com</a>.
Risk
This product poses a risk of fire because an electronic supplier component can fail in certain circumstances, with the result that the two electrical cooking zones at the back can switch on of their own accord. Objects sitting on the hob can ignite without the user's knowledge and cause a fire. This product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive.
