Also, have you contacted the manufacturer? It's possible that it wasn't installed or adjusted quite right; there might be a simple way to correct the timing on the cycle.

You might look for a heat diffuser as an inexpensive interim solution. It's a metal plate-type thing, sometimes with a handle, that sits on top of the burner to even out the heat. I'm cooking on a very cheaply-made electric stove these days, and the diffuser is a real lifesaver for anything that burns easily or anything I cook in my cheaper cookware. It would cost less than replacing even one pan.

This link should show you some examples. I don't know whether you can use Amazon.com where you live, but it'll give you an idea of what it looks like.

Thanks for the replies, maybe I shouldn't have bought the cheapest pans I could find!

I'll try cooking for longer at the lowest setting tomorrow but I don't think that'll work too well. Just cooked some kale and setting the hob to 3 meant it wouldn't even simmer!

Proper cookware and settings are the key. I needed a new set of cookware once I started using induction. Also, set the temp at a lower range and give it more time to heat up to proper setting. You will eventually learn what settings burn foods.

The only thing I can recommend is upgrading your cookware. If you can get some All Clad or enamel-coated cast iron (like Le Cruset--although you can find nice cheap alternatives--even IKEA has one) that will help distribute the heat more evenly and keep your dishes from being dramatically affected by the heating process of the induction hub.

I had an induction hob for christams, I was really pleased with it, it look sleek and it's easy to clean. But now it's installed and I have started cooking on it I'm running into problems. I'm not the best cook but I am burning absolutly everything with it!! The problem as I see it is the heat it controlled by switching each ring off and on. More 'on' time and less 'off' time is like a higher gas flame. So in effect it's like switching the flame on a gas hob up to max then min repeatedly, is this why I'm burning things, I've tried using it set lower and cooking longer but it still burns.
Has anyone used an induction hob or got any ideas how I can avoid burning things, I've just thrown out 4 large bowls of porridge that burnt so hard to the bottom of the pan the whole thing tasted awful! I really don't want to have to get my old hob fitted but I can't see any other way right now.

thanks for reading emoticon
