“Launched in December 2018, the Hotpoint ActiveCook induction hob (ACP 778 C/BA), has been developed and designed to maximise flexible cooking and to help consumers to cook delicious dishes, effortlessly.

The induction hob boasts an impressive eight individual cooking zones, all of which can be combined to create unique and bespoke cooking zones that will perfectly accommodate pots and pans, no matter what their shape or size. ActiveCook offers three major benefits that help to make light work of cooking and these are: Total Flexi technology, Active Heat and My Menu.

Total Flexi technology combines each of the eight cooking zones to create one large cooking zone. Users can cook with great precision too, thanks to the 18 different power levels. Total Flexi is a great advantage when cooking using the largest and most awkwardly shaped pans, or multiple pans, at the same temperature. The hob will intuitively recognise where the pan has been placed and generates the heat as required.

For those times when the entire surface is needed, when cooking with multiple pans, but at different temperatures, the Active Heat feature steps in. Active Heat divides the entire surface of the hob into four separate cooking zones. Each zone is simultaneously activated at a different pre-set cooking level and allows the user to move pots and pans from one zone to another, without the need to adjust the power levels or settings.

Hotpoint appreciates that due to hectic lifestyles or for those dishes we feel less confident cooking, culinary assistance is an immense advantage. When a helping hand is needed, My Menu is there to assist each cooking process. The feature can be used to guide the consumer through cooking processes, with step-by-step instructions, and assists in the perfect cooking of 63 different recipes, including favourites and mid-week, go-to dishes, such as omelettes and pan-fried fish.

Aesthetically, the appliance blends seamlessly into the kitchen with a minimalistic design of sophisticated black glass that is finished with a contemporary and stylish bevelled edge. In addition, the hob has an elegant and easy-to-use text display with intuitive touch controls for a premium user experience. The Key Lock function is a handy benefit to prevent accidental activation for added safety.

The ActiveCook induction hob offers users a wide variety of features and programmes that allows everyone to cook delicious dishes with ease. The appliance is highly innovative and surpasses the rest of its market with outstanding functionality, performance and style.”
