I want an induction hob for camping abroad I am just worried that the it will be to powerful for camp sites abroad. 1 Jun 2014
2000 W Induction Hub will have a load of approx 8.7 Amps. You will need to check what amperage you are limited to on your chosen campsites.
Is the heat limited to the circle shown on the picture or is it the entire surface and is there roomfor two pans at the same time? 8 Jul 2014
Hi It may work with two very small pans. Please note this hob is difficult to control at low temperatures (just my own opinion)
The temperature settings are 60, 80, 100 etc but I don't know how accurate the resultant pan temperature is. It's certainly not a proportional control system.
I copied this from a web site but I find the induction hob really fast so it must use less energy The following figures taken from U.S. government statistics compare the efficiency of Induction, Gas, Halogen and conventional Electric hobs Efficiency Induction hob 90% Halogen hob 60% Electric Coil or Cast Iron 55% Gas 50% Time required to boil 2qts. of Water: Induction hob - 4 min.46 sec Halogen hob - 9 min.00 sec Electric Coil or Cast Iron - 9 min.50 sec Gas - 8 min.18 sec Energy Consumption Used to Boil 2000ml of Water (from 20°C) approximately: Induction hob - 745 kJ Halogen hob - 1120 kJ Electric Coil or Cast Iron - 1220 kJ Gas - 1340 kJ
The one I received didn't work its cheap and nasty sent it back for refund.
Hi Susan, I have not used the timer, as it would be too tempting to walk away and leave it.... The book says, from switch on, press the function key three times ( 1st = power, 2nd = temperature, 3rd = timer) and adjust time using the arrows in 5 minute increments, starting from zero, up to a maximum of 180 minutes. Display then counts down. Time, power and temp can all be independently changed while cooking. Hope that helps. John.
does his induction hob cut out like the ordinary single hot plate and not continue to boil 31 May 2014
You can manage it with power from 1 to ten or with timer or with temperature. I use temperature almost always. At 100 it boils and stops boils and stops. At 120 it boils continuously. I never use higher temps because i dont want to burn the pans. I hope this answer your query.
