Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks good and installation team very good Ordered this hob to replace a gas hob and added the fitting service. The fitters phoned on the day to ask if they could arrive earlier than planned which was fine. They were very polite, tidy and helpful and the fitting went well, albeit the hob only just fitted the standard size aperture in our granite worktop (whew). It works well (only been a day so far! ) and looks really good with black granite. John Lewis gets my vote for household goods, the service is so much better than the competitors. 11 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great hob - Good price Well designed with large rings spaced apart. Only improvement would be a thinner gasket between worktop and underside of hob. The 2 mm gap it leaves, is bound to fill with grime which will be difficult to remove. Fitted nicely into cutout as specified. Well packed and delivered on time with plenty of notice. 04 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hob - wary of the scratches though Hob came on time - easy to fit (did it myself - even enlarging the opening) - looks great and works a treat. My only gripe is that the glass top can and DOES scratch easy it just 'drag' a heavy pan off instead of lifting it. Might invest in a surface ring scratch protector sheet.... 14 July 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by As yet unused - cannot connect Having cut the worktop to fit I'm ready to wire up the hob. But the screws which will hold the live wires in place are topped with an Allen key socket, quite a small one. There is no way you can get these screws undone as they are so stiff and the Allen key is not big enough to take a lot of torque. I will be contacting customer services in the morning to seek a solution but no dinner for me tonight! I agree this is not exactly a review but a warning against trying to fit the unit yourself. 12 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product at the price Great product at the price, why pay more. Has all that you need in a hob. 30 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent hob My John Lewis JLBICH601 Ceramic Hob is brilliant, easy to use, easy to clean and rings heat up much faster than I expected. It looks good too. 07 April 2015

Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I bought this hob in September due to the reviews, i find it difficult to keep clean.Even after boiling water if it splashes it marks .you cannot just wipe it without having to buff it up.I have waited until now before placing a review to try different products to clean it. 30 January 2015
