    Fairly compact I guess but you would need to keep the original packaging to store it in as being glass it couldn't just rattle about in a cupboard.

    You would need new pans as special ones are required I believe.

    It looks similar (in spec and price) to the ones which Lidl sell from time to time. We bought a couple a few years ago and they are fine. We do have pans that are induction friendly, except for one large one. We have a diffuser similar to this one so as to be able to use that but it isn't quite as efficient.

    We did think of taking a hob with us when we were going to be on EHU but decided not to as we would have to take the alternative pans and it would all be extra storage space and weight.

    Glass is tough as old boots no issue in storage
    The pans are much heavier
    Do you need all the extra weight
    What does it give you that gas cannot in terms of camping rather than home use

    I have just fitted a NEFF induction hob in the house and it is brilliant but for the van I don't see a gain

    We've had a portable induction Hob for years. We used it in the caravan and now in the RV. Ours is about the same size as the idea one, it is transported in a cupboard and not had any problems with it rattling around and breaking. Pans are easy enough to get and not anymore expensive than other pans. We only use it when on hook up but use it a lot, inc cooking outside and using it like a electric frying pan (we've a couple of plug sockets in one of the lockers so really convenient to plug in). Ours also has a timer so I can slow cook for a couple of hours then it turns itself off.

    We always choose to camp with no electric whenever we can but we do carry a leccy hob. Because when we are forced to pay for leccy on a site we refuse to use any gas at all, so heating, hot water and cooking will all be on electric.

    Agree with @Techno

    I honestly don't understand why there is a need, or even a desire for an electric hob of any type in a touring van.

    what is the benefit ?

    Most of my cooking is outside on a barbie.. and if not, the gas hob is more than capable.. in fact , I prefer it to an electric hob.

    Also, with our type of camping and having solar, we are rarely on an EHU, so we don't take any electric kitchen appliances , everything can be done with gas.. even baking..

    each to their own of course..

    Difficult to have variety on one ring but fine for us that have the payload
    A skillet will not work either :LOL:

    Its a little heavier than it looks, probably too heavy for European vans ;)
