Q & As

Tefal IH201840 Everyday Portable Induction Hob 3.8 5 4 4
Unlucky? Looking at the other reviews I think I must have been unlucky with my Tefal portable induction hob. In stew mode it never heated the contents of the pan to more than 65C in over an hour and a half - it is meant to heat slowly and then maintain the heat at between 80 and 100C. Luckily I was testing it out reheating some vegetable soup - so nothing that was going to make us ill by not being cooked. The contents of the pan never even reached a bubble let alone cooking. Then I tried the manual settings for cooking potatoes. They came to the boil with impressive speed and I started to think maybe I could live without 'stew' mode. Then I turned them down to the lowest setting and watched them still nearly boil over unless I took the lid off the pan. Another fail. Finally I tried the old reliable - boiling eggs. Again on manual 3 they came to the boil rapidly. I couldn't leave them on that setting though as water was spitting out all over the place. So I turned them to M2 and watched them boil, then go off the boil, then boil, go off the boil. I'm assuming that the thermostat is faulty in the one that I have now sent back - but I'm not prepared to take a chance on another one. I'll stick with gas. 17 October 2014
Fantastic Purchase Useful and easy to use. Quick and safe. Straightforward. Very Happy with the buy. I simply Love buying all the important things for my home from John Lewis. Big Fan!!! 01 October 2014
Amazing little cooker We bought this to tide us over after our ceramic hob (25 years old!) decided its largest ring was going to pack up. The unit sits on the broken part of our old cooker and is an absolute amazement - it accommodates everything from a wok to a massive stock pot. It's instantly controllable, and I've never before managed to get a wok this hot, and quickly too. What was bought as a cheap solution to a broken cooker ring is now in daily use in preference to the ceramic hob. The timer makes poached eggs a doddle, and if anything ever does spill over, the hob is always cooler than the pan, so things don't burn on. I didn't believe something so inexpensive would be so amazing, and I'm really really pleased with it. 25 January 2014
Life saver We bought this to tide us over until new worktops and hob can be fitted. For the price it has been a great little buy, very efficient and easy to use. 25 October 2013
