CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

The CHOICE Expert Rating is made up of performance (60%) and ease of use (40%).

Brand reliability View more details.

Scores are taken from our latest brand reliability survey. It does not add to the overall score. The score refers to the brand, not a particular model. NA or Not available means there weren't enough responses for that brand to get a score.

Brand satisfaction View more details.

Scores are taken from our latest brand reliability survey. When rating satisfaction we ask owners to tell us what they thought of the products they own. We use this information to give each brand an owner satisfaction rating so you can see what people who use the brand day in day out think of them. NA or Not available means there weren't enough responses for that brand to get a score.

We assess each cooktop's performance by cooking white sauce and melting chocolate on the simmer element, rice on the medium element and a stir-fry on the large element. The performance score is 60% of the CHOICE Expert Rating.
