Anyone used one of these things? I have been thinking about getting one of these for a while, and decided to bite the bullet with this. Most other places seem to be selling this for slightly cheaper, but adding between £5 - £7 delivery. Seems to get good reviews...

I used one in a holiday cottage I stayed at last year. They heat the food up very quickly. You might have to replace a few of your pans as they only work with certain types or so I am told.

we moved into a house with one of these installed frightened the **** out of Julie but now she has got used to it is is really good and safe.
Some problems getting pots and pans for it as we had to give away a lot of the ones we had, it needs steel or s/steel to work. :thumbsup:
#5
Thanks for all the comments. The 'net suggests that pot'n'pans need to be magnetic. Do you find that they are really energy efficient? Do you notice a reduction in your bills?

I can't wait to get mine. Is there anyone who has their whole hob run by induction? I have to admit, I am very curious about this tech! Anyone who didn't like theirs?

QVC have it for slightly more - but there are 20 reviews worth reading (it gets 4.5 out of 5); all at:

It seems the test is to get a fridge magnet, and see if it sticks to your saucepans. If it does, they'll work. If not, they won't. Apparently, faster than gas? Very impressive!

(And very hot, by the way).

I have been lucky enough to be given a four ring induction hob and it's absolutely fantastic. I did have to change my pans, but I've just bought a cheap 5-piece set from Tescos for £9.99. It heats up much much faster than electric hobs, and even faster than gas - it's really quite amazing. Plus you can turn it down instantly. And you can run your hand around the side of the ring whilst it's on and it won't burn you - it's really quite weird. All in all I give this a 10 out of 10 - I'd never go back to any other hob. Only one draw back so far - trying to fry an egg is still an art-form I've yet to achieve as it just cooks too quickly - but with a little more practise I'm sure it'll cook these perfectly too. My advice to everyone - buy one (or four), they're well worth the extra dosh.

This'll look great in your bedsit next to the letter from your ex-wife's solicitor telling you that you'll see the kids once a month from now on.

It's next to the letter from the CSA.....

I echo the comments above and will never go back to gas or electric since I had mine installed.

I cook eggs in a glass lidded pan with a couple of teaspoonfuls of water instead of oil at the lowest temperature or the keep warm setting. Cook from a cold pan too rather than pre-heating. Even then I usually have to plate everything else before starting them though!

Thanks Paul, I'll try that for the eggs - same them having curly brown edges hopefully :-)

I was thinking that very same thing!
Site seems light on company location, although that's not too unusual, I suppose :-(

A few reviews here:

Since I have ordered this, I'll let you know! However, Quidco says that ElectricShopping is very good at paying out money, so I take some comfort from that.

Well would have guessed they should be legit or Paul wouldn't have added them on Quidco?

I can't believe this is only 27 degrees!

Anyway; for those that were worried about the site; it's owned by a limited company (Elecric Shopping.com Limited), which was incorporated in February 2004. They've been registered with pricegrabber since a few months before that date.

Their registered office is their auditors, which is not unusual; and the activity at companies house is next to nothing - which is good. I usually find that the "fly-by-night" companies are changing directors, secretaries, and addresses every year as they try to keep ahead of the game. This lot have basically filed nothing but Annual Returns since they started doing business, so I'd say they were fairly solid.

If you're really bothered, but still want one, why not look at QVC? Their reputation for returns is unparalleled; and they are only about £3 more when the P&P is all included.

Thanks Timbellina - the heat doesn't really bother me, but it's nice to know that someone cares!!!

Actually, posting a deal has other benefits (which I have mentioned on many other posts!) such as highlighting better deals, or (like in this case) ift he deal is worth the money/effort. Anyway, just got an email saying that my hob has been dispatched, so not long to go now!
#18
TBH, I was really surprised. Twin inductions are around £130; fours start around £350; so a single one like this; that you could fit in a worksurface if you wanted to, and have an extra hob; or just use around the kitchen, at this price, is a bit of a no-brainer to me.

I already have a five-ring gas hob that I love to death; but that hasn't stopped me getting one of these that I can pull out of my cupboard come Christmas time when all 5 hobs are hard at it and my wife says "you'd better start the bread pudding...."

Well, my brand new induction hob has arrived, and the instructions make it all look very simple. Set the power; set the temp; cook; unplug when finished!

Just have to pop down to Tesco's tomorrow and buy some magnetic pans (should have done that while I was waiting for the delivery!)

Anyway, the company is legit, in case anyone is still wondering. Delivery was via courier, and considering I ordered (very) late Wednesday, and received it on Friday, I am very impressed with them.

An early question - why does this hob have both power and temperature settings? Is this the case for all induction hobs? I would have assumed that either one or the other would be enough.
#20
Anyone know what the minimum temp of this hob is? We're having trouble with our new induction hob as it doesn't seem to go low enough, especially when cooking sauces. I was thinking that we could get one of these single hobs in addition to the main one, assuming it will solve the problem.
#21
Can anyone tell me the dimentions of this induction hob? (HxDxwW)

Congratulations, you win the all-time award for resurrecting the longest dead thread on the site!

Seeing this was posted 2 years 7 months ago, I wonder if any are still working, let alone still for sale! :-(

You also win the award for poorest reading ability, seeing the info is clear as day in the initial post!
