If anyone wants any cheap induction compatable saucepans to go with it, ikea do a set for £5.99, which are the best budget saucepans I've ever had.

Cooking with electric is c.r.a.p electric ovens are ok but electric hobs of any description are a waste of space.

Plus why do poeple post everything from ALDI / LiDL / NETTO even if is a piece of c.r.a.p.

like a pair of gardening gloves or a plug in night light you can get this anywhere.

Yes some deals are good but not everything come on guys

Great item, but i thought that most hook ups had a limit put on them has to how much current you can draw on them.
That's my experience from camping in a tent with hook up....Caravans may well be different?
Surely something using this much power would just trip the breaker.
I'm no expert, so if i'm wrong please correct me....and apologies if i'm mistaken.

Have you ever used an induction hob, do you know what one is? Reading your comments I don't think so, It's nothing like a standard electric hob. For anyone who doesn't know, read this ]http//th…tml
As for getting this **** anywhere, go out & see if you can get a better deal! This is nothing like gardening gloves

I did a measurement on my 1.8Kw hob which uses 7.5 amps. In the UK most campsite hooks ups are 16A, although some are 10A, & many hookup cables have a 10A breaker. So as long as you don't use anything else too powerful with it, you should be OK. I've used 2 hobs together on one hookup & have never had it trip. Could be a problem in France though where the hook-ups can be lower current than the UK.

This is induction. It doesn't generate any heat itself. My induction hobs can heat stuff up faster than gas, and only use 40% of the energy by cost and have more control. Now I have induction there is no going back to the medieval burning fossil fuels on filthy awkward to clean gas hobs.

The old electric hot rings were not very good (although ceramics are much easier to keep clean) but going back to gas after induction would be like going back to a fat old CRT telly after a flat screen.

Great item - I have basically a re-badged version of this one (same button layout tec) from ebay for around the same price. Bought it to replace my rubbish electric hobs, as it sits on top of a stainless steel hob cover from ebay. Works perfectly, and the budget Ikea range mentioned above are great and induction friendly (most are not!!) You can get induction hob convertors to use your old pots and pans, but they're not normally that cheap and take a while to warm up and cool down.

You are talking complete nonsense. One of the most ill informed posts I've seen on here, and I've seen plenty. You have no idea how an induction hob works. Probably the best type of cooking out there now. Get clued up before posting in the future. Wish you could de-rep people for being morons lol. Standard electric hobs and halogen hobs aren't that great, induction is as good as gas in fact better I'd say, cooks faster and more economical, and that's why plenty of professional chefs use induction for cooking now.

I bought two induction hobs from QVC for £31 each plus p&p last week, and of course this deal now comes up. I bought a 5 pan saucepan set from Wilkinson for £10 in a box and they work perfectly. Mine look better than these but I'm sure these will work just as well. I am amazed at how quickly they boil water and how controllable they are. You can control the temperature and the power input (Watts). Pots should have a flat base and if a magnet sticks on them they should work fine. The £10 pan set I got from Wilkinson is made from carbon steel. Here's a link to them I guarantee they work on induction hobs >

Said out of stock online but they had some in my local store.

my mum got an induction hob last year. it was over £2k so I'm not sure how one that costs 1% the price of that one can be any good. But induction hobs are awesome. After using one, normal hobs are such a chore.

Hot...hot...hot

this a few years ago would of cost a few hundred pounds.....
Its amazing how prices drop on technology so fast...
These are ideal for fondu/steamboats

Great find HOT!!

These portable induction hobs are excellent. They range from around 1800W to 2000W depending on the manufacturer. A built in induction hob will usually have one ring which is 3600W which is obviously a lot more powerful than the portable ones. Belling I believe are the only manufacturer to do a complete Induction cooker with an electric fan assisted oven, it costs around £700. Built in induction hobs have come down a lot in price now, you can pick them up for a few hundred pounds to several hundred. There are even induction ovens now, where food is placed in a container which is compatible with induction, one example is the Belling BI60I which is around £600.

Obviously you don't know what you are talking about as induction hobs are brilliant. Best you do some research before you dismiss one of the best cooking technologies. Then if you still think induction hobs are "c.r.a.p" you can tell us why

This will simply have a 3-Pin 13A plug on it no doubt as 2kW uses approximately 8.3Amps of current.
Great product that is both more efficient and much safer than other hobs, keep telling my local youth club to get one in the kids kitchen instead of wasting money on pointless crap but I fear it's gonna take some poor kid to get 3rd degree burns before they listen to me :x

Starts 26/04/10, says it in the first post, must be late LOL!

I have an induction hob........best method of cooking I've ever used. I'll be off to get one of these puppies later. I'll be using it for an occasional extra cooking, we have dinner parties and sometimes need an extra ring. In fact I have a large cast iron gridle that take up over one rings space on my hob, this would be an ideal solution.

vote hot.

These hobs are brilliant and, at £30, a total steal. These were hundreds of pounds a few years ago.

bought this last year at Lidl and use it in my motorhome and use the sites electricity rather than gas.

Immediate heat response, total control and cools to the touch almost immediately. Also very safe, when you lift the pan, the induction ring switches off.

For caravanners or motorhomers this is a no-brainer. It is light, doesn't run of expensive gas cartridges and can be used at home.

v6dic..........add a k to your nametag for that rather purile little rant.

Ive always had that problem with my ceramic hob, you know pans breaking in half and my egg falling on the ring.

plus if your camping you'll be better off with the single burner gas unit from b&q for 12.99

I got induction hob, best thing ever. And a total bargain of £120 from this site last year (hotpoint rrp £500)

it's been this price or lower in countries like china or eastern asia for number of years, not sure why it took how long it took to reach uk. this is one of the best technology breakthrough in terms of home appliances, make my life so much easier. i once compared the speed it takes to boil some water, it's done it quicker than my 2.7kw kettle

You really should read your own like before making such claims.

Neutral Or Hard to Reckon Energy CostsMost people can't save much energy … Neutral Or Hard to Reckon Energy CostsMost people can't save much energy by changing their cooking methods. That site estimates saving about $13 a year for gas cooking rather than electric, and that's not induction electric, which is significantly more efficient than most other electricity-powered cooking methods. So perhaps even a buck a month difference is too high an estimate. In short, the energy cost difference just don't matter. (Which, of course, is why they're in this "neutral" category.)

So should you. From the site being referred to: 'There's also a new kind of stovetop cooking called induction cooking, but I have no good data and no unit to test.'.

Induction hobs are about 85 to 90% efficient in transfering energy to the food, as the magnetic field induces the heat in the cooking appliance. Gas hobs are about 45% efficient in their heat transfer.

Induction hobs are absolutely fantastic, and even better camping...i will be off to get myself one shortly

We have one of these portable units, we bought it last year (we have a caravan) and we use it in the awning to cook with.. it's totally fantastic and keeps the smells out of the caravan and is fast and amazing really.. we paid about £50 but I really did shop around for that price. Those Ikea pans are amazing value too.:thumbsup:

Try reading what I quoted! induction is more efficient, but electricity is 4 times more expensive than gas and as stated in the quote the cost saving per a kW is next to nothing over gas.

Does this work with DJ Hero on the Wii?

induction hobs are still new in UK homes, but in places like Korea/Japan and some other Asian countries, induction hobs are very common and surprisingly not cheap too.
a good one costs abt £200 wt many features.

I am on my second induction hob - I simply do not use the rings on my electric cooker anymore.
Induction = faster; safer; more efficient; quicker clean up.
Only pain for me was having to buy new pans - use a fridge magnet to test the pan bottoms, don't assume like I did that shiny silver metal = ferrous.
I've got the Kenwood one, that has a dial at the front for changing intensity and I do find that that is better than push buttons, as the plastic buttons on my previous induction hob split from usage.
After 4 years some of my pans still look new - spillage on induction does not result in burnt on cleaning disaster.
A big plus is that this Lidl hob has 10 intensity settings, which will make simmering a more simple task - my Kenwood only has 5 settings and with certain pans (the amount of ferrous material i.e. size/thickness of pan, seriously effects cooking characteristics), and so for simmer, a setting of 1 is too low and 2 is too high.
Having the up/down buttons positioned at the top is probably not the safest option - I'd be tempted to rotate the hob 90CW and have controls in front of me.
Good price.

thanks OP heat added :thumbsup:

Virtually no chance using this in European campsites

I have one of these, use it when we are away in a hotel. Saved us loads of money! Cooking pasta, soup and beans!!

Why?

It's not the cost of the gas etc, it's the fact that the second you lift off and stop cooking it stops using energy. It's so much better and 2010 that even if it were twice as expensive to run (it isn't by my measurements, it';s cheaper) I would still take it over old fashioned gas.
