“Cata Induction Hob”

Written on: 22/12/2013

Bought the Cata Induction Hob from B&Q just over 2 years ago. Only used it once as was not living in the house. Moved in last week after finishing running a pub (where I was living) only to find that the hob did not work. I rang B&Q who said you have to contact the manufacturer. I did this and they told me to send an e-mail of the problem. Once this was done they contacted me to say an engineer would call out. He came, but suprise suprise he didn't have any spares with him. I was told it would… Read Full Review

The engineer has called out again today with his spare parts x 2 guess what it must have been the 3rd part that has packed up. Here we go again must wait for at least 5 days for the part and not only have I had to be without the hob over xmas I am now going to be without it over new year. I will never ever buy anything from Cata again or any other electrical item from B&Q.

“Not fit for purpose”

Written on: 07/04/2013 by djb1965 (1 review written)

Bought a Cata oven 24 Dec 2010, which failed 26th Dec 2012. Bought a Cata oven & hob from B&Q on 27th Dec 2012, now one hob ring won't turn off, have to have a saucepan of water when using oven just to stop ring overheating. Bad service trying to repair it (engineer didn't turn up (0800Repair)). Looking at the other reviews, I shall be taking it back to B&Q (still have receipt) for a full refund. Advice: DO NOT BUY CATA PRODUCTS… Read Full Review

UPDATE: Took oven & hob back to B&Q today who refunded in full. Their repair service, 0800repair, is no better though. Couldn't get engineer out when booked, couldn't identify problem, told parts would be ordered, 5-7 days delivery; 2 weeks later received call from repair company asking what parts do we need? Bad, just bad.

We bought a Cata induction hob and it has stopped working (after a year but within the 2 year guarantee period). They have agreed to send an engineer to fix it but, despite arranging an appointment a week in advance the engineer came when I was at work. I was then told by Cata's service centre that appointments could only be made between 8am and 6pm and that I would have to wait another week for another appointment!!! Totally and utterly hacked off with Cata - I wouldn't buy anything else from them

“appallingly dangerous”

Written on: 15/01/2013

I bought a cata static oven on offer at B&Q and it looked very robust. After a few months though I had problems with regulating the temperature, it overheats and you need to watch your food all the time. The whole oven heats up on the outside so much you cannot even touch the handle or control knobs with your bare hands. I have had an engineer out but now they need more temperature tests and trying to get someone to commit or call you back with a definitive answer is not possible. I am trying… Read Full Review

“Not to be recommended”

Written on: 26/10/2011

This Cata hob was on special offer at B & Q and looked like a bargain, as good as many more expensive hobs. I am very disappointed with the product. It was installed in my new house in April 2010, not used until I moved in November 2010. Within 6 months 1st hob stopped working, a few weeks later 2nd hob stopped working. Unfortunately, I had mislaid my invoice and it has taken me until now to find it (still living out of boxes to some extent!) Last Sunday, 23rd October, 3rd Hob stopped… Read Full Review

You bought this product from B&Q therefore your contract is with them, not CATA, they need to sort it out.

“Imploding glass hob”

Written on: 02/10/2011 by CIndo (1 review written)

Do not buy this product. It's dangerous. For the first time I used three of the rings simultaneously and within ten minutes the whole glass hob had imploded - thank God it's safety glass otherwise I dread to think what would have happened. Unbelievable and now I have face the whole job of trying to get a replacement. I will be insisting on a stainless steel hob now. I have never seen anything like it and would advise against any Cata hob… Read Full Review

“USELESS !”

Written on: 27/07/2011

Absolute Useless, l hope nobody has the misfortune of buying any c--a product from B&Q ever again .B&Q should know better than to stock this product. If any company deserves to close down it is definately this one. My c--a hob gave up last Wednesday 20th of July 2011,not even two years old, B&Q said it was out of their hands and to contact the supplier. When i finally got through they told me i would be contacted within 24 hours it is now july 27th and still no sign of any service man and i… Read Full Review

“Dreadful. Bought hob & cooker Dec 09 as xmas present...”

Written on: 23/02/2011

Dreadful. Bought hob & cooker Dec 09 as xmas present for elderly mother. It is now Feb 2011 and neither work. The hobs have sporadically worked and the cooker but without enough regularity to actually be able to plan meals. The engineer has taken forever to get 'the right part' and never turns up before 6pm which is hardly convenient for an elderly widow living alone. Engineer does not seem to have a clue. Why should we even need parts for a brand new cooker & hob. Called Cata today and asked… Read Full Review

“I am using the Cata hob from 3 years and the service...”

Written on: 12/11/2010

I am using the Cata hob from 3 years and the service is pathetic. Bangalore service head says that since I am not happy with his service, he doesnt want to replace the parts. They accept themselves that the parts are not designed for long term use. A regular gas stove is much better than this hob because it cannot burn in very high temperatures according to Cata service. The materials used are such that after prolonged use they stop working. So the hobs will not work for more than 2to 2 and… Read Full Review
