This versatile, fast heating electric Induction Hob is perfect for small kitchens, student accommodation, caravanning, or just as an extra cooking appliance for the busy kitchen. At less than 7cm high it's easy to store away or to pack for trips.
The hob has a whopping 2000W of power and heats up in a fraction of the time a normal electric or ceramic hob takes, with the added bonus of being able to carefully control temperature, unlike gas hobs.
The hob has a clear digital LED display and user-friendly soft touch buttons, so it's easy to control your cooking.
There are 10 pre-set power levels, ranging from gently warming at 1, to a hot sizzle or roaring boil at level 10.
You can also choose to specifically set the temperature between 60 - 240°C, with the option of 20° increments.
A timer can be set for up to 3 hours in 5 minute increments, so you can leave your dish on a slow simmer without worrying you'll forget to turn it off!
The built-in microcomputer ensures settings are strictly adhered to so you can trust your recipes will turn out as you planned.
The hob will not switch on without a pan on its surface and will switch off immediately when a pan is removed. This means it's not possible to switch it on accidentally or to leave it turned on, so you can have total peace of mind. The hob also has overheat and power surge protection.
Not only does the glass surface of the hob look fantastic, it's easy to wipe clean, and doesn't have the same nooks and crannies of a traditional hob where dirt can collect.
Will your pans work?
It's easy to test if your pans are induction hob compatible; if a magnet sticks to the base of your pan, it is suitable for use on an induction hob. Please note this hob will not work without an induction compatible pan on the surface.

I read quite a bit about how fast at heating this hob is, which to me is great, but to those who are used to cooking on electric hob cookers, it may appear a bit too fast. Turn a gas cooker on high flame and it will heat quickly, this cooker does heat up fast, but I found it far more controllable than a standard electric or ceramic hob cooker.
This cooker reacts more like a gas cooker would, with the added benefit that you can set the temperature and walk away.
If you want to simmer something with a lid on, set it to 80 degrees, lid off 100 degrees and walk away and get on with other cooking, it heats up to whatever temperature you set, and maintains that temperature. If you need to cook something at a set temperature for a given time period, just set it up to do so.
This does what you need, as long as you take the time to get used to it, and stop treating it like every other hob you have used, unless it was an induction hob.
As shown in the Az blurb, it has ten power settings and a range of temperature settings and can operate as either power-input controlled or as pot-temperature controlled. The mode selection button also allows a count-down timer that can be applied to either mode - a bit confusing, but one gets used to it.
Power mode. Setting 1 is not quite a simmer, setting 2 is a gentle simmer, setting 3 is a slow boil, and then it really gets going, with not much apparent difference in the higher settings. I would have liked more subtlety in the power settings, like with my De Dietrich 60cm Induction Hob DTi704V. Being extremely quick to the boil, it feels more than the two kilowatts, but that might just be because the controls are rather coarse in their application.
Temperature mode. Lowest is 60°C and it goes up in approximately 20°C steps to 240°C. Except it is totally inaccurate at the lower temperatures, persistently boiling four pints of water furiously on the 60°C setting, long after I would have expected it to have sensed the temperature of the previously boiled pot. I can see the application if one is using a cooking oil at high temperature, in a big full pot that is slow to respond, but not otherwise. Poor.
Timer mode. It works and is accurate, and counts down to turn off the hob.Read more ›
The phrase ''A WATCHED POT NEVER BOILS'' can now be happily consigned to the dustbin of history !! This incredible invention DOES IT ALL... from a slow simmer, to a gentle saute, to a rolling boil, and everything in between - all COMPLETELY, controllable - whether you use the pre-sets, or the temperature control. A bright 5 year old could master both, in 5 minutes !!
Any reasonably experienced cook will tell you, that being able to SIMMER at a constant, low temperature, is an essential. Any cook IN A HURRY will tell you that bringing a pot of cold water to the boil, takes AGES. Well... NOT ANY MORE... for EITHER !! I regularly make chicken stock and then put it in the fridge. After 3 days, if it has not all been used, you have to bring it to the boil. From REFRIGERATOR COLD, to a ROLLING BOIL, TAKES ... 4 minutes !! and this is for TWO QUARTS... a lesser amount comes to a rolling boil, in a matter of SECONDS. Don't leave the kitchen thinking its going to take ages... IT DOESN'T.
We use both the temperature controls and the pre-sets... for instance, if you want to saute, it takes slightly more than #1 pre-set. It is merely a case of ''try it and see'' - after three or four days, we had a very comprehensive idea of what we needed, in ALL the regular dishes we make. The pleasure of using these incredible devices, continues to unfold on a daily basis !!
HOWEVER, what makes the steam come out my ears, is that I NEVER KNEW ABOUT THEM, UNTIL FIVE WEEKS AGO !!!!!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
If you want completely controllable cooking, install these little beauties and watch them CHANGE YOUR LIFE IN THE KITCHEN... FOREVER !!

Having got to the end of this review I realized it was as much of a guide to using an Induction Hob as a review but I decided to leave it as it was because I hope that some new users will find it more useful in this form.
For those familiar with induction hobs I would buy this one again subject to my comments on temperature control which may be better on units other than this and the Lidl unit I previously bought.
The delivery charge seems expensive but may be justified. I bought two to reduce the delivery cost per unit. The units arrived on time and well packaged. Set up is as easy as finding a level surface plugging it in and switching on with a suitable pot in place (see POTS).
A magnet must be attracted to the base of the pot. Induction hobs work by inducing heat in the magnetic material in the pot. Stainless steel pots are not necessarily magnetic.
There is an induction symbol on some pots but most pots with a magnetic base will be suitable for an induction hob provided the base attracts a magnate, larger than 12cm and smaller than 22 cm. There is a little tolerance so maybe 10cm to 24cm would be OK.
Pots that a magnetic will not stick to will not work unless you put a special disc under them.
The disc seems a bit fiddly and overpriced so new pots are probably a better option.
Pots that have a solid base of reasonable thickness (4mm) are most versatile (see POWER and SIMMERING).
PUSH BUTTON VERSES TOUCH CONTROLS
I had originally bought an induction hob from a different manufacturer that used touch sensitive controls under one sheet of ceramic.Read more ›
