I'm considering getting an induction hob. My boat has no gas fitted and the previous hob was a diesel, but that has broken and the parts are no longer available for that model. Anybody had much experience with them? I have 3 domestic batteries and shore power, though we just use it on our home berth. We don't cook big meals, just fresh pasta and things like that.

We have an induction hob works perfectly ok on hookup or generator don’t know if it would run from an inverter
Much better than messing about with gas

Goodness me you do like to do things the difficult way.   The only experience I have of an induction hob was at a luxury holiday bungalow.   Took me all week to figure the blasted thing out.  It had a mind of its own.  My advice steer clear.  You cannot beat a gas cooker.  Turn it on and it heats, turn it off and its off.   No worries about batteries.

Cheers

I'm with Highlander on this one nothing is as instant as gas, also electric would need a huge inverter and really be a drain on batteries if you were not on hook up.
One of those small portable cookers that have just one ring and run of a disposable canister work quite well, would keep you going till you decide what to do we had to use one as a stop gap and they are quite efficient.

Another one here who struggled with one in a holiday cottage. It would work one day but not the next, turned out to be the type of metal used in the saucepans so you might need new saucepans as well, other than that it was great.

All help gratefully

Induction hobs are far better and cleaner than gas hobs. Much more efficient and manageable. Mrs D loves ours and would never, ever have anything else.
However, on a boat I’m not sure the batteries would cope. What about one of the single portable induction hobs that could be used with shore power when available?

Be very careful if using one of those. Having seen one of those explode and the injury and damage they cause, I wouldn't go near one. The BSS has some words of caution regading these.

Thank you, there is no gas on the boat and to fit a gas locker would be expensive and difficult, no obvious space having been left for one. I agree I would  never use one of those canister gas cookers anywhere except on the bank, having seen one catch fire. In fact a camp site owner I spoke to last year said he had seen it many times and thought they should only be used outside if at all.  So I might try one of those portable induction ones and see how it goes, before getting a new diesel one. I will try and remember to report back!!

“Induction hobs are far better and cleaner than gas hobs. Much more efficient and manageable… would never, ever have anything else”

ABSOLUTELY! It goes without saying that saucepans, pans etc. must be thick-based and compatible (we didn’t even have to buy new ones, ours passed the magnet test, i.e. if a magnet sticks to their base they’ll work on an induction hob, aluminium etc. pans won’t). But now no more burnt outsides or handles, everything easier to clean, and the hob itself just wipe-down of course.

As for the applicability for boat use, all depends on the boat’s wiring and the hob itself (with every zone on “PowerBoost”, our Neff would consume 10 KW, do the maths), I’ll leave that to our more technical members to advise.

About 830 amps at 12 volts. That's not going to work, is it? Wink
