£28.90 is with delivery. Cannot find any other induction hob below £50.

Apparently, double plate version is for £87.90 delivered down from £207.90.

When Lidl have them (not at the moment though) they're £30 (less a penny)

Induction hobs are not to be used if you have a Pacemaker fitted.

I have an induction hob in my kitchen and would not go back to gas now. Not all saucepans will work with this hob though.

Pans suitable for this type of hob must be made from magnetisable metal such as cast iron or steel. Pure aluminium or copper pans will not work with this type of hob unless the base is bonded with a magnetic metal

As hypnotic, take a magnet with you when buying pans to suit.

Three quarters of TKMaxx pans didn't stick - but a quarter did, so they're not difficult to find.

I never knew this.

Just been in the kitchen with a magnet to make sure my pans were not magnetic X)

They have copper bottoms so are all good.

I hate using a gas cooker now.

Copper is no good though, unless I misunderstood.

Just got the booket out for my pans and they are fine.

Copper coloured base but apparently they are thermo core.

Good for hot pot.

I got my pans at tesco, but they were a lot dearer then normal pans. Definitely take a magnet as sometimes the description "stainless steel" refers to the sides as there is usually something else (non magnetic) bonded to base.
When I first used the cooker I was making a savory rice dish that took 425 ml (3/4 pint of water) and left it on full power to boil. No sooner had I washed my hands (60-90 seconds) the thing was boiling !!
My lidl model has power, timer and temp settings.

Isn't the point to find pans that ARE magnetic?

It's late and I'm tired :P

Yeah I think so.

I was being stupid

How is this powered? Do you plug into mains?

No, you wind it up !!!
Seriously though, this model uses up to 2000 watts of electric. but that's full wack, a simmer setting would be much lower.

I've gone onto induction for two years now, after my friend got an induction hob. Lidl were doing them at £29.99, and Amazon had a different brand for £29.99. So I bought a couple.
If you look on the label of the saucepans, it will list what hobs they are suitable for. But you'll find that not all of them list this.
So, I take a magnet with me when I went shopping for saucepans. Wilkinsons have their "cheap" range of saucepans that have a base that attracts magnets. They're like £1-2 for a saucepan. Otherwise, I had to go to department stores (like Palmers) and buy the more expensive ones (made by Judge). You'll find that some enamel coated cookware will also work. The "Ready Steady Cook" range also work. TKMaxx also have some Judge stuff that will work.

About the induction hob, it is quick to heat up. But I find that the heat comes in pulses. If I turn it to maximum, the heat will be constant. When I try to turn it to low (ie. to simmer), it "pulses" with heat roughly every two seconds. That's the only part I hate. So in a way, the heat is less controlled on a low setting. My friend has been put off because of that, and has gone back to the regular hob.
Does any one else experience this "pulsing" with their induction hob?

Yes, have a 4 plate SIEMENS hob and that pulses on some levels, not a problem or that noticeable really.

Not only are these great for cooking but sooooooo easy to clean!

Good deal for people living in a bedsit without a cooker. Otherwise completely pointless!

Cold - hot for dossers in a bedsit though!!

That's rubbish. These are what we use in the kids school, safer than letting them loose on gas. We also use them for school fairs etc.
I have a 4 plate neff induction hob and wouldn't look back, got my pans from ikea. Think they were about 80 quid for a set, 3 saucepans and a frying pan.

Stainless steel pans have aluminium encapsulated in the base. This helps to spread the heat evenly, as Stainless steel on it’s own will not do this.

Voted hot because it has the same name as me and it made me laugh when i saw it! Its the little things

Normal cermaic electric hobs work exactly the same way - they are either off\on i.e - pulses. Gas is the only thing that won't pulse. Your friend does know what a thermostat is lol?

induction hobs are great if you have young kids, i can put put my hand on the ring after moving a pan and although warm it wont melt your hand like a normal hob.

What made your parents call you "Induction Hob" then?

I've had one of these for yonks. Love it, but got to be honest I only really use it now when I'm having a BBQ. Stick it on the end of an extension lead and you've got al-fresco cooking for potato salad, sauces, corn on the cob etc. etc.

Yeah, I know the normal ceramic/electric/halogen ones work the same way. Gas is preferred, and is easier to control.
Do you own an induction unit??
The difference with induction is that the heat is instant, so as soon as the pulse kicks in things start to bubble and burn if not stirred etc. The difference to ceramic/halogen pulses is that they take gradual time to heat up your saucepan. You'll know what I mean when you're trying to simmer sauce :P As soon as it pulses, it's like a volcano erupted.

For info - if you cannot afford an expensive set of pans, then the Tesco Value pans do work with Induction Hobs. So for £8ish you'll have three pans that work at least...

I've an induction hob (after having various other types) ... Love it ..

Induction - Flexable and behaves like gas (being variable to heat up and drop in tempreature) unlike Ceramic which retains the heat in the glass surface, which means you have to physically take the pan off, safer (for all the aformentioned reasons), low(er) energy use (comepared with Ceremic), easy to clean - disadvantage - the issue with having to use magnaticed pans!
