1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    Be a little bit wary if you're fitting it yourself. I get the impression that some hobs regulate power draw.

    Some will run on a plug at 3kW, some need 16Amps and some need the full cooker supply at 32Amps.

    RTFM before you buy if that matters to you; they all look similar and i doubt the 3kW will deliver full power to all rings simultaneously.

    A bit like AV Amps quoting 7 x 500wpc!

    You need to get somebody to give you a proper induction to them.

    The quality does vary. I have stayed in Air B&Bs with cheap induction hobs and was not impressed. But if you get something from one of the better brands like Bosch or Electrolux, you won’t look back (except for Woks as noted upthread, where a dedicated large gas ring is best). The quality of the cookware does matter too, as that is your cooking element. We have had good luck with Le Creuset pots, and for cooking steak Demeyere pans are amazing.

    I am sure our Siemens can be setup to run on different options. You tell it what the supply is when you install it. Best if you can have a full cooker supply.

    Different pans do react differently. You need to learn what settings work for each pan.

    We have Neff “domino” hobs. 1 x dual induction and 1 x gas wok hob, which is designed for high temp wok cooking. Works a treat and gets used a lot (my wife is Chinese Malaysian).

    Highly Recommended, the wok (and my wife :D).
