probably same as last time if same model 2000w smsmasters.co.uk/for…77/

If you've never used an induction hob, I can heartily recommend them. The only drawback is that they are slightly fussy about pans (the bigger and heavier the better) but the speed at which they boil a pan of water is amazing as all the energy goes into the pan.

Do Argos list induction safe on specs for pans ?

Its got nothing to do with the weight and size. The pan must be attracted to Magnets (i.e. stainless steel or cast iron). You can also use an interface disk between the pan and the hob if your set is neither of the above.

Basically, if a fridge magnet sticks to the base of the pan, it will work on induction (regardless of size or weight). Ikea do some very good value induction compatible pans.

Why would someone buy this though as I assume everyone already owns a cooker with 4 rings?

Induction is extremely quick at heating up, way faster than gas or electric.

I use my single induction hob rather than my cookers hob, because: it uses less energy; is fast; is extremely controllable; doesn't discolour pans; spills do not burn on to the hob and because buying a freestanding or built in cooker with an induction hob is a ridiculously expensive premium, compared to a non-induction hob cooker - a single induction hob is a hot deal.
Voted hot!

HOT thanks op

Potentially ave some more by utilising the £5 off £40 deal as posted elsewhere! ..the link is to HUKD pertaining to a daily mirror / daily record voucher...

As I recall efficiency of induction is around 80% compared to regular gas / electric.

Shame that the government could in a simple fell swoop knock so much of our day to day cooking power requirements (a considerable strain on the grid at peak times) by sorting out a deal for induction appliances (ok with the exception of pacemaker patients et al). & do some good for carbon emissions / brown outs both short & long term.

A regular induction hob is a crippling price typically!

The other thing about induction hobs is that they are far easier to clean. Since they don't get very hot, nothing gets burned on as when, for example, milk boils over or fat splashes onto a traditional gas or electric hob. You can get a 4 ring built-in induction hob for well under £200 these days so not too expensive either.

The cheap ones are a false economy . They don't heat anywhere near as fast and lack the swankier functions that make these hobs excellent.

So, is this "a cheap one" then?

I would have considered this but all my pans are stainless steel (non-magnetic).

7 years of induction hob experience says otherwise. Pans that are too small for the particular "ring" won't be recognised by the hob as I guess they don't generate emough load. Pans that are too thin will generate hotspots and, in common with other cooking methods, don't conduct heat very well either. There's more subtlty to it than a pan that is "attracted to magnets"

Went for one anyway for car camping, so here's a few notes that may help.
The minimum pan size is 12cm
Weight is 2.2kg
Can be adjusted for power in 10 step from 200 to 2000W in 10 step or temperature from 60 to 240C in 10 steps.
The power settings appear to work at three levels 1200W, 1400W, and 1800W.
Below 800 the unit cycles on and off every few seconds, using 1200W pulses, above this it the cycles are much shorter (my setup only samples every 6 secs) and you can't hear the unit cycling.
The temp setup works in a similar way, noting that at 100C the unit will cycle (using 1200W).
Takes 4m30s to bring a litre of cold water to a rapid boil.
Also TK Maxx will have a selection of induction frypans for £10 or so.
