Smeg unveils its all-new Eclipse glass induction hobs
Smeg, the luxury Italian appliance brand, is delighted to unveil its all-new range of Eclipse glass induction hobs, a sleek new offering addition to its existing hob portfolio.
The new Eclipse glass induction hobs will be available in 60cm (SIM3643D) and 90cm (SIM3963D) models, great for both compact kitchens and larger islands. The glass co-ordinates perfectly with the finish used on Smeg’s ‘Dolce Stil Novo’ and ‘Classic’ built-in design families.
The Eclipse glass hob range features Smeg’s MultiZone heating system which can be used as either independent cooking zones or combined into a single zone. Each zone uses automatic pan detector technology to allow the hob to adapt to the size and position of the dishes.
Induction allows for precise temperature control for both intricate cooking and simmering. Heat is only generated when the pan comes into direct contact of the specific cooking zone, ensuring safety in the presence of children. This also helps to optimise power consumption, only using the energy needed to heat the pan itself. Users can also select Smeg’s innovative EcoLogic advance system designed to limit a user’s power consumption, saving energy.
Other benefits include induction heating food faster than gas, taking around one minute to boil water. The sleek, flat design also makes it easily wipeable with a cloth.
With a premium white LED control panel and a flush fit onto work surfaces, with two fitting options available for versatility, it is a sleek addition to modern kitchen designs.

SMEG, one of the largest Italian home appliance companies, was founded in 1948 by a family of entrepreneurs who, with great passion and know-how, managed to develop a strong and growing company. Today, Smeg is run by the third generation of Bertazzoni, but it still keeps the memory of its beginnings alive in its name, an acronym for Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla ("Emilian metallurgical enamel works of Guastalla").
Over time, the brand has established itself as a symbol of high aesthetic and each product is made with a unique attention to research and development. Each new appliance for SMEG is a special artifact, which arises from a deep study of design, ergonomics and function. Smeg's internal design studio, which carries out painstaking research into aesthetics and style, has the support of internationally renowned designers such as Guido Canali, Mario Bellini, the Piano Design studio, Marc Newson, Giancarlo Candeago, Matteo Bazzicalupo and Raffaella Mangiarotti.
Today Smeg has a strong international presence with 18 direct commercial subsidiaries (France, England, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the USA, South Africa, Australia, Mozambique, Poland and Mexico), a representative office in Saudi Arabia, and a large network of distribution partners all over the world.
Smeg has received a number of important accolades over the years, including a Wallpaper* Design Award, a Red Dot Design Award and an iF Design Award, as well as 2 x Designer Kitchen & Bathroom awards and multiple Which? Best Buys. In 2015, Smeg won the prestigious 'White Goods Supplier of the Year' prize at the ERT Awards.
