Valira Aire Plancha Grill Pan 4 "Adaptable" Pauline Seymour 21 October 2018 We bought this from the main shop in Windermere and took the opportunity to discuss it with the staff before buying. We use it on an Induction Hob and as such the steel ring heats up and then distributes the heat to the aluminium plate. Be aware that the central area will be hotter than the edges, so use it like a BBQ. We have used it much more than we intended to; to sear meat, cook crispy bacon and sausages (it is big enough to cook an English breakfast), cook griddle cakes and we are still finding different uses for it. Overall we have found it to be a useful addition.
