Induction Hobs

We've been thinking about buying an induction hob to take away this year, instead of the 2 ring electric hob. We still take a gas cooker to use outside the Eriba, but can save a lot on gas if we use electricity that is included in the ACSI price. We reckoned we saved about £100 on our long trip in 2011. The trouble with an electric cooker, though, is that the further south you go in Europe, the lower the ampage gets and we end up using one ring at a time in order to not blow the fuse. Does anyone have any recommendations? I think some hobs are adjustable in how much electricity they use?

The other thing is is it practical to use a converter disc like these?

We bought our induction hob from Lidl for £30 after an enthusiastic recommendation from a couple we met in Carcassonne a couple of years ago.

Its only drawback is that it is a single 'ring' but I did see a multiple ring one in Lidl a few months ago for about £80. The problem with Lidl is that they don't keep things in stock so you have to monitor their offers on a weekly basis if you don't want to miss them. I signed up for their weekly newsletter for that reason.

The induction hob heats up very quickly and is easy to keep clean but you do need special pans, again, Lidl is a good source for them. We wouldn't be without ours.

Don't you have the ability to order anything via their online shop over there then? I ordered that oil radiator that everyone was on about a while ago but was no longer in the stores. Delivered within 2 days and paid via invoice. Perhaps it's different over here though.

Time for bed now.

We really don't want to buy a new set of pans if it can be avoided, and wondered about the converter dics. Has anyone used them?

I would have thought that if your pans are not ferrous then the converter disc will only become a radiator and therefore, you will loose the control and speed of the induction hob.

Still looking into an induction hob and came across this comment on UK Campsite.co.uk

We've got an induction hob. We bought it for the caravan, but my hubby loves it sooooo much, it never GOT to the caravan!

Im not really fussed for it, I'll use anything to cook on. But he loves it! Men and their gadgets!

When he cooks, he whips out his hob and off he goes! lol


What more can I say ????

[URL=http://www.qvcuk.com/cook's-essentials-Portable-Induction-Hob.product.800987.html?sc=800987-DRIL&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-4-_-800987]was watching a demo only last week for this[/URL] (for some reason this link wont shrink to text)
the speed of cookings amazing, but the stopping of cooking is instant as soon as switched off like a light
the top doesn't get hot shown with ice cube only pan.

I see Lakeland do one page 2 here is a selection

we have a stew pot now not available on qvc this has the same qualities (ours was cheaper but its hard to find a sizable 5.7 litre, non stick induction hob friendly and other hobs, stew pan, with 2 handles, glass lid, which can be put in oven at a reasonable price) , is very handy not only for stews buy frying burgers in rice boiling, jam making.
also use a steamer for other meals and straining like a colander . (marks and spencers sell them cheaper.)
the steamer was handy for when we ran out of gas, turned pan upside down put little meth hob on the put stew pot on that
hope these links help

Well, we've taken the plunge and invested in Andrew James induction hob £27.99 + delivery http://www.amazon.co.uk/Andrew-James-Dig...s+induction+hob and a set of very neat pans £37.99 http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/outwell-feast-set-large-p262914 and have survived our first practice meal of chicken curry and rice all done on the single hob. The curry stayed hot while the rice cooked and then gave it a quick blast at the end whilst draining the rice. All done in half an hour! Am really impressed with the instant heat and turn off and also can adjust the power, so I might not blow so many fuses on southern campsites with 6 amp electricity.
