What is a ceramic hob cooker?
Then, do I need special pans for a ceramic hob?
To ensure your ceramic hob remains in good condition and easy to clean, we recommend heavy gauge coated aluminium or hard anodized stainless-steel pans with a thick base. You can also use good quality enamel on steel or cast-iron pans, but these may scratch the hob surface.
Secondly, which is better ceramic or induction hob? Ceramic hobs are quicker to heat up than an electric hot plate, but are often quite a bit slower than a gas or induction hob. If you are energy conscious, ceramic hobs are normally not the best choice as the entire cooking zone is heated. Induction hobs use magnetism to heat the pan, not the hob.
Simply so, what is a ceramic hob?
A ceramic hob refers to the finish of the hob rather than the workings of the hob itself. The stylish, streamlined ceramic glass makes for easy use and cleaning due to its wipe-clean fascia. An electric solid plate hob refers to a black sealed plate that heat and cool slowly.
What does a ceramic hob look like?
Ceramic hobs are electric with a smooth, easy-to-clean surface. They're easy to use and heat up quickly, but heat distribution around the bottom of pans isn't as good as when cooking on gas.
