    Just moved and started using an electric hob - what the hell are they about? Damn thing takes 3 days to change temperature. What a load of arse. Yeah, OK so I'm ranting. Just needed to let off some steam. (Something I would try with that damn cooker).

    Its true. they really suck big time. Gas hob, electric oven, & gas grill. Its the only way to cook.

    Nah! You just have to use the 'Mistic Meg' style of cooking.

    If you don't have gas where you live (as we don't) then a halogen hub is the next best compromise.

    Try using an electric hob with cast iron Le Crueset pans, you need to apply in writing 2 weeks in advance before they'll heat up!

    Halogen? They cost a fortune don't they? It's a life of micro meals for me, ASDA are selling them for 39 - bargain.

    what is worse is when you pop your pan on the electric hob, allow the required 20 mins for it to reach boiling point... then return 20 mins later to discover that you've put the wrong one on! Grrrrr.

    Halogen hopes are cool, until you spil one of the most corrosive substances known to man on them, hot jam, if you don't wipe it off quick its temper tantrum time!

    I do, I put the kettle on the other ring while I'm waiting....

    Le crueset works fine on our ceramic hob. Good for rice and pasta. We do always use the kettle to heat water first though. Mild steel is the business for frying pans - tefal type ali is next to useless for frying meat.Talking about which - Chicken Tikka massala calls me from the kitchen :-)
