Lakeland Digital Induction Hob 5 "Excellent" Rita 10 June 2013 If, like us, you cannot afford a cooker with induction hobs this is an excellent alternative. Admittedly we have only just started using it, but so far we cannot fault it and find it brilliant. Our old electric cooker top is very slow and you cannot get the rings down to a very low setting. This little hob is fast and you can control it as you would gas, in fact it is probably better. I am sure we will find more and more uses for it over time, but at present, just for day to day cooking we are delighted.
