    I've been asked to replace a hob for an elderly customer of mine. The current hob is a museum piece, straight out of 1986. One ring doesn't work at all, and another doesn't turn off... at all.

    I've looked on AO, and Curry's websites, but I need something pretty specific. Does anyone have an idea for suppliers?
    Needs to cover the hole the old one is fitted in.

    Measurements are 760mm wide by 510mm deep.... or 30" by 20" in old money. The new one can be bigger, but no smaller.

    Due to the fact that the couple are 90 and 95 year old... their eyesight isn't great, so the plain black ceramic touch control gizmo's are a non starter.
    Needs something with rotary knobs...

    Yes, Buzz.... most hobs are standard 600mm wide.... but you can get them larger.
    I found an induction hob which would fit, but its just black glass finish.
    I can hardly see the controls, never mind the half blind customer.

    Thanks Murdoch, but not wide enough. Needs 760mm wide to cover the old hole.

    I've asked at my local electrical wholesalers so ill see what they come up with.
