Going to call in on my way home and get one of these beauties. thanks
Heat (as long as your pots and pans are compatible, otherwise you will get no heat from this !) I have a built in induction hob and am having to buy new pans to go with it.
States works with any pot with a magnetic base.
If you buy the Daily Mirror today you can get £5 off of a £35 spend so worth it if you are going to buy other items. Thanks to JohnWorf who posted the offer.

You do need special pans - Ikea do them cheap, otherwise they are quite pricey. We have an induction hob and really like it - not quite sure what you would do with only one though.

i find my induction hob is not as good as conventional hobs. It seems to either be too hot or too cold. It's hard to find a good level of heat. Plus pots and pans are really expensive. Go to TK Maxx for cheaper induction pots and pans.

Then there is something wrong with yoour hob. The whole point of induction hob is that its the closet thing to gas , should be fully controllable at the touch of the button. Mine is exactly what it is meant to be. My old ceramic hob was awful as thats basically just an element. Induction rules, although i did have to give away my fab set of Jamie Oliver pans

I have a couple of similar induction hobs, they are excellent for speed of heating up, but you do have to babysit them especially if you want to simmer, to simmer anything on these cheap hobs is neigh on impossible. I expect more expensive in-set hobs would simmer fine.
I have heard that some induction hobs are poor when it comes to getting a stable temp, i.e the hob will pulse to try and keep at one level, where gas can easily stay at a constant BTU output.

If this is one that will stay at a constant level its good but if its one where it can only be on or off thus having to pulse to keep in the in-between levels then I would give it a miss.

As for pans anything a magnet will stick to will work on induction.
Love induction since I put one in when I rennovated my flat. Very quick, very efficient.

I got a set of cheap pans from Makro which work fine on it. Also got a wok which is also fine on it. If you're not sure, just take a small magnet when you go pan shopping. If it sticks, you should be OK to use it.

No problems with simmering or heat settings on mine. But then, it's a Whirlpool built in one that cost a fair whack more than four of these ....
LOADS more efficient than gas or other electric hobs ....by a mile! CRACKING DEAL
While on the subject of induction hobs I have a John Lewis one and found out later that it's an OE Electrolux - as is their built in double oven.
Might be easier to get disc on Electrolux than JL.
SWMBO really loves her induction hob. As others have pointed out control is immediate with no delay.

This one will almost certainly pulse, at heat settings of 2 - 10 it will be fine but stick it on level 1 and nothing happens then the water fizzes intensely then stops for a little while then starts etc, makes simmering very difficult. I have two similar to this, I still use them a lot though.

Except that producing electricity is not exactly efficient, the US government actually calculated it as (based on source fuels and grid loses for both electricity and gas) 25% induction, 38% gas. The EU has more stringent rules for gas hob efficiency, so induction in the UK will likely be worse.

However, as a standby ring, I might get one, and when in the summer I'm generating too much energy with my solar panels, I can at least cook for free.

We've had a Neff induction hob for 11 years - it's been excellent. The Ikea 365+ range of pans are the best value we've found
ive got one of these in the cupboard i read that they used an awful lot of power to use so therefore banished it to the cupboard

Induction heating is most efficient especially on magnetic steel (which this one would be), it would have to be a particularly bad example to be higher than any other type of cooker
I bought one of these about 18 months ago. This and a cpl of halogen ovens are all I use for a family of four. Agree with the problem of simmering though, can be hit & miss on the lower settings and I've experienced a few charcoal burnouts due to the speed of these things. My youngest tried doing popcorn kernels on one without any oil. Still trying to fumigate the house now. Mind you, had the same learning curve when doing jacket spuds in a microwave 25 years ago. They came out as hollow burned out shells. (_;)
Many thanks to all those who have voted hot. The reason I purchased this is that we moved house which has no gas and our cooker has a gas hob. As the cooker was quite new we have not replaced it yet so I decided to get one of these to try out. I really miss omelettes and stir fry's so I am hoping that I will be able to do them on it. The other issue is pans I think I will try out Ikea's pans as they seem to be the most recommended. Many thanks to all who have left comments.

I use Cook's Essentials pans from er QVC, mainly coz my mum bought them for me, but they are excellent.
Does anyone know what the wattage of this item is?
