OMG! That's scary. Good thing you change.Kitchen hobs have become an important kitchen accessory especially to those who cook very often!! Even for those who don't cook every often. Who knows if you would pick up cooking later in your life like I did! Haha. I used to think that since I won't cook very often, a simple cheap hob will do but XXX (I will not mention which brand) were rusty at the button area after 5 years. Imagine my surprise and shock. Afraid that it may start a fire, I immediately changed my hob.
