Nope.
Cast iron melts at around 1,150 to 1,200°C
Steel melts at around 1,370°C
Copper melts at around 1,085°C
Aluminium melts at around 660°C
Stainless Steel melts at around 1400-1450°C

So unless your pans are made of Cadmium, which melts at 321°C , then at 413°C your pans will all still be in a solid state.
However, if that was a typo and you meant that your pants would melt, then you have a case.

Waited 8 weeks for so called technical support visit to check my HOTPOINT White goods is safe only to be fobbed off with "we are very busy and will contact you in due course". They don't care that my house insurance does NOT cover fire by faulty equipment?

I will never buy any further equipment from Hotpoint, Indesit or Creda.

​I'd be very surprised if it didn't
Induction hob works like black magic.

Do you mean there is a known fault with the model as I can't find any evidence of that? If you mean induction cookers in general, which bit specifically would heat up? they heat the pan without getting hot themselves* so it seems unlikely.

Would that be related to the tumble drier issues? They have rather a lot of people to service and the manufacturer isn't any of those companies, they rebadge the items, so not very surprising it's taking a while to get engineers out. What is the specific fault does anyone know? It looks very much like the general problem with tumble driers, in that some fluff gets through the lint filter and sticks inside the machine and if you don't clean it out it eventually causes a fire. Do the 'affected' models have a particularly bad element position or something? What is the fix? very little actual information online, just panic stories written in the 'press'.

*the glass top plate eventually gets a bit hot through conduction from the pan but nothing like other electric cookers that rely on conduction as the heating method.

​Your insurance must include cover for faulty goods! if it doesn't then get some decent insurance! I mean that's how fires start due to faulty appliances....

Unless you meant it doesn't cover you for knowingly using a faulty appliance, then that would be fair enough as they could prove negligence?

Even the best induction hobs are hopeless - good idea but don't work well in practice. Add the fact that it's a 'cheap' Hotpoint and I wouldn't hold out much hope here.

Oh, and if that doesn't put you off bear in mind that you'll probably have to replace all your pans with expensive ones to be compatible.

Never heard so much tosh in all my life! One of the most, if not the most economical forms of cooking and certainly the cleanest. I've had an induction hob for the last 10 years, is used every day and looks as almost as good as the day it was bought. Induction hobs do work well and I for one wouldn't use anything else.

I've had an induction for about 4 months now and it's been great - very responsive and loving the extra safety around kids. Pans are an issue - my old stainless steel ones had to be replaced and some of the pans I've bought have flat out lied about being induction pans (Stellar non-stick ones recently). Having said that I bought some cheap pans (some celeb chef ones from TK Maxx) for the kids to wreck and they've been great.
induction rules! way more economical than gas, ceramic and halogen. TK Maxx if you need new pans (we bought Stellar and they work).

Yes, because induction hobs will not heat up plastic

Would my Joseph Joseph plastic pans be ok?


So these induction hobs are supposed to be economical to use so why are they rated at 7.4 kW ?
We're moving into a new place, and it has an induction hob. We've currently got a gas one, and I've been told that my pans won't work and I'll need new ones.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some decent HUKD worthy compatible pans?
Your pans might work, check with a magnet, it it sticks they will work
IKEA also do induction pan £5 for a set of 3

Sounds about right with them all on full.
Induction is more efficient. Heats pans more quickly/efficiently and so can bring a pan to the boil quicker or simmer using less power than you would have to with halogen.
I have a discontinued CEO 647 Z, half halogen, half induction.
Halogen rated 1.4w / 1.8w
Induction 1.4w / 2.2w
I am hoping to buy an induction hob soon, a friend tells me the cheap ikea 365 range of pans work brilliantly! & yes if they pass the magnet test they will work I'm told.
