Rajshah's review of Baumatic B77BL

★★★☆☆
Baumatic B77BL

“5 Ring Hob”

Written on: 13/02/2013 by Rajshah (1 review written)

The supports are not practical as they only have 4 points of contact.
Even if you have a flat pan, the weight of the handle can topple it if the handle is not directly above or in-line with one of the support points. This is a safety hazard. I spoke to their helpline and they say no-one else has complained about this! I do not agree. The supports need a bit more metal around the circumference...this is why you usually have round or bigger square supports which are continuous at the outer periphery. How are you ever going to use a normal wok (curved base) on the middle plate?
It is a good design apart from this critical failure. They should provide a different type of support ring!

I've just complained about this very problem and I too have been told nobody else has complained - this product is lethal - and should be withdrawn from sale.

It appears that they hob has been discontinued. However they are dangerous for the reasons everyone is giving.

I have emailed Baumatic saying that they should replace them as they are a hazard. If a consumer had an accident no doubt Baumatic would be seen as liable.

Sounds like a typical TESCO reply when you return defective goods. "Nobody else has complained. This is the first one.
LIARS my next door neighbour took the same product back to the store as I did, only 3 days earlier. It was a Karcher cleaner.
