I was looking for a spare hob for times when my main gas hob is fully occupied. I didn't want to use a butane gas burner in the kitchen and I've found electric hobs slow to heat and cool compared with gas. An induction hob seemed to be the answer. Reading reviews of this type of hob I gathered that, while they are very fast to heat and cool, a drawback with most is that the lowest heat setting is often too high for gentle simmering. I searched around for the temperature ranges on different appliances and found that this Judge induction hob had a very wide range of temperature settings starting at 60 degrees centigrade, whereas others had a lowest tmperature of about 120 degrees C. The Judge has 10 temperature settings ranging from 60 to 240 degrees C. The lowest setting is safe for delicate sauces. Recently we had a dinner party and I had three small pans keeping things warm sitting on the hob set at 60 degrees C and they didn't burn or over-cook.

Another merit of this kind of hob is that when you remove the pan(s) the heating source turns off immediately and are thus much safer than gas or electric if positioned on a work-surface in a busy kitchen.

Only certain pans work on induction hobs but I found many of mine do that are not specially labelled as such. Those that attract a magnet all seem to work.

A disadvantage I can see is that the glass (?) surface of the hob is fragile compared with, say the cast iron grids on a gas hob, and so one will have to be more careful over placing heavy or rough cast iron pans on the surface.

Overall I am delighted with this purchase, which I bought to supplement my meagre two electric hobs on my Baby Belling mini-cooker. It is light and small (about 32 x 34 cm) and sits securely on four rubber-based feet. It has a wide range of temperatures, from a gentle 60C right up to a scorching 240C, and also has an optional timer. The first thing I cooked on it was a chilli, and I was extremely impressed with its responsiveness, ably handling the initial frying and browning, through to the gentle simmering, with ease. This thing is easily as responsive as gas - you can see the effect almost immediately of turning the temperature control up or down.

And of course it is so easy to clean, being a perfectly flat ceramic surface which (apart from directly under the pan) remains cool during cooking.

So those are the positives, but here are three gripes I have, which collectively knock off one star for me:

My number one gripe, as has been mentioned by a couple of other reviewers, is the loudness of the beep. Even though I was ready for it, it still made me jump when I plugged it in and it beeped unexpectedly. Every single press of a button generates an equally noisy beep. Worse, simply removing a pan from the hob whilst the unit is cooking causes it to beep incessantly every couple of seconds until the pan is replaced. Although I am getting used to it now, I am sure that sooner or later I'm going to have to unscrew the base, and locate the source of the beep so I can destroy it, which should make for more relaxing cooking.

My second gripe is that the temperatures can only be adjusted in increments of 20 degrees C.

Very enthusiastic about this when I first got it - used it all the time because our Stanley gas cooker is slow and expensive for hob cooking. First one lasted a few months, then the body cracked (glued it up, seemed ok) but finally it gave up the ghost. A replacement lasted precisely one week, so it's gone for good. I'm really disappointed because it seemed to work so well! Could have done with another setting between 80 and 100, or even better a continuous control rather than a stepped control.

The only thing that I don't like about this hob is the loudness of the 'beep' it makes when switched on and when changing functions. Otherwise it works so well (provided you make sure you have pans that work with it) and the timer means you can leave food steaming (for example) and do something else without worrying that it might overcook.
It is so responsive its like starting an Apple compared to a PC (in the world of electric things).

Saw some reviews that suggested that not all pots and pans would work. All ours did. Just remember the theory and all will be well. Testing using a 'fridge magnet is a good plan.
The controls take a bit of getting used to and the electronics will beep an error if things get hotter than they should. This can be disconcerting, but not really a problem. Just restart!
This is a light and efficient unit that will fit into any small galley or unit kitchen with a minimum of fuss. The power lead is a bit short, so you need to be near a power outlet.
I am not too sure how long it will last, but at the price I'm not bothered. Marked down because of short power lead and error manging electronics, but trivial really this little unit is well worth the money.

I'd like to agree with the guy who said the beep this product makes is really loud. It really is much louder than necessary - it's like it's shouting! I took mine apart and stuck some adhesive foam over the beeper, and it's still loud. I'm going to disconnect it next - even if that does void the warranty, then maybe the wife will use it too. She won't go near it at the moment. Apart from that, it's great. 60 degrees is fine for simmering, which was one thing I was concerned about before buying.
