Amz Chef Double Induction Hob summary

Some double-ring induction hobs can be bulky and difficult to store, but this model manages to be compact while offering ample space for a variety of pan sizes.


We were impressed with its smooth, attractive glass surface and bright touchscreen functions, which include a lock button and three-hour timer. It uses wattage and temperature (C) controls to manage heat levels rather than a traditional one to 10 scale, which may be confusing at first but is easy enough to master.

There are six silicone feet on the underside that keep it secure on the worktop, and pans don't slide around easily on the hob rings either.

How easy is the Amz Chef Double Induction Hob to use?

One of our favourite things about the Amz Chef Induction Hob is the impressive size of the rings. The manufacturer advises using pans between 10-26cm, demonstrating just how versatile this gadget is – whether you're batch cooking with a large wok or boiling liquids in a small milk pan.

Both hob rings stay cool and are remarkably safe to touch even during cooking – a real safety perk if you have young children or pets in the kitchen. The controls don't get hot either, and the fan gets a little warm at most.

We loved this model's bright, clear display too. When plugged in, the controls are clearly marked 'off' in large red letters. The appliance switches off automatically after 10 seconds if no pans are placed on top, and it also turns itself off once the timer has sounded. This can be annoying if you're using the timer to keep track while following a recipe, but is a useful feature all the same.


The left-hand hob ring on this model boiled a litre of water in five minutes, which was about average, and there was a good distribution of bubbles too. Our boiling-over test, however, was less successful and after adjusting the temperature, the appliance failed to react quickly enough and the milk spilled over.

Cleaning up was a doddle though, as the surface didn't get hot enough to burn the milk properly. When making caramel, we found the heat was consistent throughout and resulted in gentle, even browning.

How sustainable is the Amz Chef Double Induction Hob?

We found a mixture of recyclable and non-recyclable packaging when unboxing this portable hob, though the plastic wrapping and polystyrene weren't excessive. From a cost perspective, however, this model was on the more expensive end of those we tested, costing 9.21p on the right hob (1800W) and 4.96p on the left hob (1000W) when running for 10 minutes – based on a variable tariff of 34p/kWh.


Where this portable induction hob really shines is its safety features. The lock button and automatic switch-off functions are excellent, particularly for households with young children or pets.

We also admired this model's versatility and ease of use and how much room we had to move the pans around. It's certainly an attractive piece of kit and could happily be left out on display if you struggled to store it.

Where it fell short was its slow reaction times and cost to run. Overall, though, it would make a very welcome addition to any kitchen.
