CDA Buying Advice – Hobs

What is a bridging hob?

A bridging hob is a cooking surface that allows you to adjust the size of cooking zone to suit your requirements. This frees up many more sizes and types of pan for use, including griddle plates and fish kettle styles. The bridging technology works by the controls allowing a selection between single cooking areas and combining them to create larger zones. You can literally create an internal ‘bridge’ that joins the front left zone to the rear left zone, for example.

The induction hob models HN6731, HN6841, HN9611 and HN9840 all feature one or more ‘bridging zones’ on the surface. This large cooking area can be used separately by switching on either the front or back part of the zone.

Alternatively, both zones can be switched on together to form one, extra-large cooking area. The bridging function makes it easy to use large or oddly shaped pans and casseroles.

Our bridging hobs are all equipped with additional features like overflow and overheat protection that detects when the temperature gets too high or if the contents of a pan have boiled over. The hob then instantly reduces the temperature down to a safe level.

They also feature a boost function that is ideal for boiling stovetop kettles or bring pasta water to the boil quickly. For when you need to pause cooking to fetch ingredients, answer the phone or deal with life’s interruptions we have the ‘pause/restart’ function and for latecomers to the dinner table we have the ‘keep warm’ function to ensure that dinner stays hot until you need it.

Not forgetting the timer that we have built into the bridging hob range that can be set up to 99 minutes for precision cooking and complete control.
