My Baumatic ceramic job is broken. I've just received new one and it doesn't fit in the granite worktop. All ceramics seem to be 560x490 niche dimensions and my old one was approved. 560x450. I can accommodate 560 but maximum 480. any ideas where I can get ceramic hob with those dimensions ?

Hi George I also checked the dimensions on website before purchasing. However fact s dimensions are 560x485. I have contacted the company and had no reply. I've now had to pay to have my granite worktop trimmed 5mm to accommodate this hob. Not your fault nevertheless this has been an expensive exercise
Hi Lorraine, if the appliance is not the size that it is advertised to be, then you can return it under the 'Sale of Goods Act'.

I will continue to try find you one that meets the requirements if you wish.

Thanks George but they simply don't make that size anymore I've even spoken to manufacturers and now I've had to pay to have the granite cut. Returning the unit would not have helped I would still have been without a hob
