4.0 out of 5 stars Not for hob? Flawed design? works on my induction hob, 20 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Le Creuset 3-Ply Stainless Steel Rectangular Roaster, 35 cm (Kitchen & Home)
Love the saucepans from this range and wanted an absolutely flat bottomed roaster to go on the hob.
Unfortunately the bottom is very slightly raised, so the edge contacts the hob but the rest doesn't.
I'm sure it would have worked but if I tried it I wouldn't be able to return, which I did as for this price I want to be absolutely happy. I can't see the point of this in the design, I can understand it for thin stainless sheet metal roasters because they need the strength but this surely doesn't.
I did want to keep it, it's a good size - large but not too big for the oven.
Shame.
Update.....
I couldn't resist buying it another time after all and it works fine on my induction hob for gravy - a key feature. Rock solid. After a few years the surface isn't as mirror like, but not far off. As with other 3-ply the middle aluminium layer gets corroded in the dishwasher around the edge.
I love it but it is large so I don't use it as often as I used to.
If you want a fully flat bottom one take a look at John Lewis, but this works fine on my hob. I dropped the star for the ever so slightly raised bottom.

Mine's completely flat underneath, I've just looked. BTW If browning joints or chops you can do them in the roaster in a hot oven instead of on the hob.

I suspect this raised surface might be intentional. If it were flat, heating the centre may cause it to 'pop' into a dome shape. Le Creuset may have pre-stressed it to stop the shape changing during heating.

I thought it would work but wasn't sure enough to risk the £100 so returned it.
