a life saver

My oven went bang, litterally! I couldn't use it at all not even the hob. As it was going to be over a week before it could be fixed I rushed out and bought this thinking that 2 rings would be better than none at all and I could use my combination microwave as the oven. It worked out perfectly! The little unit itself is neat and tidy, fitted on top of my cooker, a ceramic hob, was very light weight has rubber feet to stop it slipping. There are 2 solid plate rings, one large and one smal, both with a switch and pilot light that flickered on and off as the thermostat worked.. It heated up fairly quickly, not as fast as my hob but I wasn't expecting them to. The switches are in front of the corrisponding ring and graduate in heat up from 0 to 5. They need to be heated at 5 and then turned down slowly, I found the simmer to be at its best on 4 mainly and anything below 3 nothing much happened (great to melt butter though) I used a variety of sized pans from a very large stock pot down to a small milk pan including a fry pan and all worked well. The only thing I will say is although the instructions say when you first use it to switch each ring onto the highest setting to burn off excess dust etc it says it will smoke a little, well it smoked ALOT and made some terrible cracking sounds I thought it was broken! it was fine, just be prepared for your neibours to come running because smoke is billowing from your kitchen! After a day or two to get used to the settings it worked out just great, I managed to cook for my large family (7of us) for over 3 weeks with it, and I really do cook not just heat up canned meals. I plan to use it when we go camping later this month as we have an electric hook up cable for our tent so it will be far better then relying on the small cannisters of gas we normally use. All in all a great little life saver but would be perfect for students or anyone living alone or even with a small family or indeed for camping. Very impressed.

Cheap & nasty

Very disapointed. I had to return the first one I bought as one of the feet was missing & the plug pins were fixed bent. When I returned it I checked the replacement before leaving the store, only to find bent plug pins on that too. They gave me a third one, plug was fine but when I got home to use it I found it was warped so only three of it's feet are ever on the work surface at any one time. Not very safe at all. I live too far away from the store to justify more bus fare to change it so I've had to wedge cardboard under it to stop it wobbling when I'm cooking.

Good Buy & does the Job!

Good price! and works properly. I usually 'rate' a product based on longevity, and have only recently bought this product, so it's too early for a conclusive comment. Nevertheless, so far, the hobs have worked well, and give good performance., especially when a little strategy is applied. Suggestions: 1. On first-time use & at least 6-8 hrs before first-time cooking, make sure the kitchen area is well ventilated, switch on air-extraction, or/and open as many windows possible. The metalic-residue on the new hobs MUST be heated off. Switch-on hobs to an average heat for 5-10 mins. Allow hobs to cool while residue-smoke clears. Repeat process until all residue-smoke completely clears from the hobs. 2. When ready to cook, try to coincide your food preparation while the hob plate/s heat up, as it takes 3-5 mins to reach the heat-peak of your selected temperature. 3. Speed up cooking time by using hot water from your kettle for pan-boiling veg ect on hob/s. 4. The hobs retain peak heat for at least 6-8 mins after switching off power to the unit. Coincide your cooking time to take advantage of this extra heat.
