Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have Tefal seen these reviews Bought this over a year ago and love it. So much in fact that I am shopping for a freestanding double hob version. I agree about the simmer. I see JL often respond to comments so I wonder whether this (small) flaw has been passed on? And is there a double hob version or could anyone else recommend one? 12 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good introduction to induction hobs Bought this mainly to tide us over while having a new kitchen installed, but also to see what induction hobs are like and whether we'd want one in the new kitchen. So far it's been excellent. I mainly use it on manual, it heats things up really fast and is very controllable. Other people seem to have had trouble simmering stuff but I found the lowest setting works fine for this. My only criticism is that even when it's turned off, the 'on-off' light flashes so you have to uplug it completely. Otherwise, it's an excellent piece of kit which I will be keeping to supplement the induction hob in the new kitchen. 28 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Bought this as our kitchen was being re-done and needed something temporary to cook on. It's compact but big enough for my biggest saute pan. It heats up quickly and a big pan of water (eg for pasta) comes to the bil quicker than on my old gas hob. Very easy to use though I really only use the Manual setting; I have used the timer setting too but as it simply switches off once the time is up, it's not really something I find useful. The lowest manual setting gives a brisk simmer though one of the other settings (eg milk warming) may be gentler. Highly recommended! 22 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent We bought a skillet that was supposed to be used on any hob, but we found it didn't heat up well. When we saw this, we thought we'd get it, as we planned to use the skillet a lot. Very happy we did, as it heats the skillet and our Le Creuset frying pan properly and the food then cooks evenly. It's easy to clean too and not too bulky to store. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for stir-frys 100% brought this over a year ago after waiting for my gas cooker to arrive, Couldn't believe how quick it was heating up as soon as i put the correct pan on. would love to have a full four ring induction hob cooker but don't have the correct electric wiring for one, but if we did then would 100% get an induction cooker after using this 06 February 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Definite drawback Having a good experience of using a full-size induction hob, I bought this 2 months ago to supplement my present gas cooker. The impossibility of simmering is a major drawback, and I join other reviewers' plea to Tefal to remedy this issue on an otherwise very useful and practical hob. 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really useful I have used this every day since I bought it and have not anything bad to say about it. 03 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful extra help! I wish I had bought this a long time ago. It is easy to use, compact and good value. 07 January 2016
