Hi Erina,My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Are you able to send me the model number of your hob.
Sorry I was working on other questions.
Modern hobs do only work when a pan is on them so unfortunately they will turn the hob off when the pan is removed. I agree this can be a pain. I am looking to see if your hob has the option to turn this feature off
often yes you will need to cover the whole hob for the sensor to activate and turn the hob on.
I am concerned that the whole glass plate gets hot, induction hobs should be lower in temperature and not to the point you cannot touch the glass.
Where did you get the hob from. I would advise calling the company purchased it off to arrange for them to come out and have a look at it because I dont think the glass so be very hot.
I think the cool down period should be quite quick as well
I think should cool almost instantly.
Induction Technology Induction hobs generate heat only where it is needed – in the base of the pan. What does this mean for you? More safety and more convenience. The lower temperature keeps both big and little hands safe from burning. Not only that, but an induction hob brings two litres of water to a boil twice as fast as a glass-ceramic hob, which also saves a great deal of energy.The above is from bosch and I feel your hob is faulty as the whole area is hot.
The hob area will be warm as the heat from the pan would have warmed the area where the pan was but it should not be hot.
Your are welcome if you need any more help let me know
