White Open Zone Induction Hob – Cool!

White Open-Zone Induction Hob Joins Intelligent Cooking from Amica

Induction cooking gets another boost this month with the introduction of a new white model from Amica

The clean lines and bevelled edge of the new Amica white induction hob provides a blend of minimalism and advanced, flexible functionality for today’s contemporary interiors.

The centre of each heating zone on the elegant, white easy-clean glass surface is indicated only by a small star.  The four zones – 2 x 22cm and 2 x 18cm – are controlled using a centrally located front flush direct touch sensor panel.  A slider control provides quick and smooth one-touch operation to ensure speed of operation without rotary controls or knobs which may harbour germs.

LED numbers indicate the selected power level with heating options 1-9 and an anti-burn warm setting – perfect for sauces or melting butter and chocolate.  A child lock, minute minder and pause button provide temporary and instant relief from direct heat. Each of the zones has its own booster and timer and cooking is automatic, the open zone hob is able to detect a pan anywhere on its surface.

This powerful hob offers all the benefits of cooking with induction – quicker with less energy wastage and easy clean – perfect for today’s modern home life.

Persimmon Homes South Coast release
3 October 2012


A Hampshire charity has narrowly missed out on winning a brand new house from a national housebuilder.

But New Milton based charity Pilgrim Bandits did scoop a £6,000 runner up prize in the competition to celebrate Persimmon Homes’ 40th birthday.

Pilgrim Bandits was one of 24 charities competing by public vote for the three bedroom detached house in Andover valued at £250,000. The winner of the competition, The Harley Staples Trust, was announced during a glittering birthday lunch at Kensington Roof Gardens on Thursday.

The Pilgrim Bandits raise funds through challenges to support ex-serviceman and amputees. The group organises fundraising – and confidence-boosting – endurance and adrenaline adventures for members of the public and injured ex-servicemen.
Deborah Risbridger, spokesman for Pilgrim Bandits, said “It’s hard to be disappointed when the house went to such a worthy charity – we came away with a very welcome £6,000 which we plan to use for a number of expeditions for service men during 2013.”
Andrew Golawski, managing director of Persimmon Homes South Coast, said: “In total, Persimmon Homes had more than 3,500 nominations for the competition, so for Pilgrim Bandits to make the final was a brilliant achievement.”

Persimmon Homes was founded in 1972 by current life president Duncan Davidson and has grown to be one of the largest and most successful housebuilders in the UK over the last 40 years.
