Induction cooking on the cheap

We’ve just seen that LIDL are selling self-standing single induction hob for £30 (see here).  We have an induction main hob in the kitchen, and having used it for a few years, I find it very hard to believe that anyone installs anything else.  It is superbly controllable (better than gas), very clean, and all in all a leap forward.  The only challenge we have is that we only have four hobs, and for complex meals we sometimes want more.  So, Sa is heading to tomorrow to see if she can get a couple of these from LIDL.  If you want to experiment with induction the cheap then for £30 how could yo go wrong?

    Hi Greg,
    I bought one for Ireland last year but have not yet used it. It is so handy in this stand-alone form for use in the Swallow Barn. The only downside I see is the need to get the right saucepans – good flat bases and no copper. Any suggestions?

    Pans have to be steel/stainless steel. Copper and aluminium are no good. I think Cast Iron (aka le crueset) works as well, but not tried it. Flatness isn’t a real issue unless they are really warped, but can’t think why you’d want to use a warped one!
