Smeg P1640X Gas Hob, Stainless Steel

Product information

Clean lines and an elegant design fuse with high performance in the Smeg P1640X gas hob. There are 4 burners in diamond configuration, providing a flexible range of power from 1.05kW through to 3.1kW outputs.

The transparent control knobs sit at the front for easy and precise control, while heavy-duty cast iron supports are durable and stable. Safety valves provide peace of mind in case of flame failure.The Smeg name is linked to its roots in the Guastallia region of Italy. Smeg stands for ‘Smalterie Metallurgiche, Emiliane, Guastallia’ (a metal enamelling factory in Guastalla, Emilia, Italy). Smeg ensures exceptional build quality by using high quality components and applying rigorous testing to every appliance. It takes two years of research and testing before Smeg releases a product onto the market, and every appliance is tested for 15 years of use.

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks fantastic and easy to clean Recently purchased this hob as part of the refit of my kitchen. It looks really smart and stylish. Was a little concerned that the plastic knobs might look a bit cheap and nasty but i needed have worried - every aspect of this Smeg hob screams quality. What's more it's really easy to clean too so hopefully will continue to look good in years to come. Really pleased with purchase. 19 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful flames and looks fantastic - but beware installation pitfalls! Recently bought this excellent Smeg P1640 gas hob to replace our existing electric hob. The hob looks great, with heavy cast-iron grating and a sleek brushed-steel look. Powerful rings make for good cooking. The only down side, which I wasn't made aware of at the time of purchase, is that upon installation we were told we needed an extra part in order to connect the gas supply to the hob - only £33.00 extra but the hassle being the part needed to be sourced and ordered in which took a week or so. So before you buy this, do check what extra widgets you'll need to buy to actually get it up and running. 23 November 2011
