Good in some aspects,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Morphy Richards 48031 Induction Hob, Black (Kitchen & Home)
I needed a new portable induction hob for my elderly father. I have been using a built in 4 ring induction hob for about 6 years and love induction cooking. I bought father a cheap Japanese one some while ago which now needs replacing. Looking at the reviews I thought this would be ideal. It arrived today so I thought I would test it before taking it down to him, good job I did. The lower settings have a very strong pulse action i.e. the magnetron acts then cuts out. This means that it is very difficult to keep food at a low steady simmer and really dodgy if you want to make a proper custard for example where the liquid must not boil. I don't have this problem on my hob nor on the aforementioned Japanese one. My other worry is that as an older person he is a little clumsier than when younger, the whole top is glass, no 'buffer' edges again as in the Japanese version. I can see it would be far too easy to chip the edges. The optional swipe temperature selection is a good idea but also probably not so suitable for an older person.
