    New Ceramic Hob - Pans! 17th Oct 16 at 1:16 PM
    I have just had a new ceramic hob fitted. It's very posh and new (thanks landlord).

    I spent 150 on pans many years ago and they're still going and have done me well. However the coating on the underside is coming off in places which has left it coarse in some parts. Now, this worries me as I don't want to damage the ceramic hob especially as we've not paid for it!

    Can anyone recommend pans? I've googled it and spent my entire lunch break and not come any closer to deciding what to have. I don't think I can keep my current ones as they are really grainy underneath now. Which would be fine on a gas hob but clearly not on the new glass ceramic one

    see how much a new hob will cost they are quite cheap, cheaper than 300, get a spare one and store it to give to the landlord when you move. Just use your pans on the hob and stop worrying.

    To be honest, the 50 set of stainless steel pans I bought at Robert Dyas are as still as good as they were 7 years ago.

    I mean, there's not much to go wrong with a pan, especially if it's no plastic handles or sleeves.

    The above mentioned Stellar , Judge and Horwood pans are made by the same company but, I believe are listed in order of price.

    I have a set of Judge and a single egg poacher from the Horwood range and there is little difference between them.

    They are a very good company to approach for advice.
