Buyers' guide

â- Because induction hobs only work with cookware with a ferrous content, test your pans with a magnet to see if they are suitable. If the magnet sticks to the base then the pan is OK to use

â- Small, commercial portable induction hobs add flexibility into kitchen design as they can be plugged in wherever is convenient

â- New counter designs feature induction hobs mounted under the surface which can double as extra work surfaces when not being used for heating
