  • Groove touch control panel;
  • Multitimer «3 in 1»;
  • Personal settings, Re-start;
  • Child lock settings;
  • Automatic dish recognition.

Very cool model with induction. You can’t plug a built-in into our kitchen, you can’t change a good set because of it, so we chose a high-quality stove with serious functionality. Expensive, but somehow they didn’t see a real alternative to this Electrolux.

GEFEST 6570-04

The choice of good full-size stoves with an induction hob today is not so extensive. And against the background of the range available on the market, one of the favorites is deservedly a rather original and solid model made in the Republic of Belarus, which also has a very nice design.

The cooking surface is white glass-ceramic, like the whole stove, in color. Burners: 4 induction, of which 2 with booster mode. Heating control — touch, there is an indication of the presence of residual heat. The multifunctional oven has a useful volume of 52 liters, the coating inside is durable enamel with low porosity. Unfortunately, there are no telescopic guides, but there are removable wire ones. Implemented double illumination of the interior space. Of the functionalities: grill, accelerated heating, convection, electric skewer, barbecue attachment. Tray and rack included.

The model has an analogue made in completely black color — PE 6570-04 057. But if there is no fundamental difference for the interior, you need to understand that the white version is more practical, since light dirt, water stains and minor scratches are less noticeable on it.

Main advantages:

  • Stylish glass facade;
  • Convenient pull-out bottom drawer for dishes;
  • Multifunction touch timer;
  • Function of blocking of management for protection from children;
  • Full 2 ​​year warranty.
Minuses:
  • The electric cable is not equipped with a plug;
  • For the Belarusian assembly, the price is somewhat high.
Models in the line:
  • GEFEST 6570-04 0057

We do not have the opportunity to reconstruct the kitchen set or buy a new one, and the old Soviet stove of 60 cm is no longer serious. We chose Hephaestus with induction and are 100% satisfied. Now I even want to cook more somehow.

Heating can be controlled manually, even 5 built-in programs are available (the main thing is to understand them). However, according to the already established tradition, the Xiaomi product also turns out to be “smart” — it is ready to be connected via a Wi-Fi network to be controlled from a smartphone using the proprietary Mi Home application.
