They're all fairly old, but absolutely nothing wrong with them... freecycle?

Charity shop?

what is an induction hob?

Freecycle or charity shop. Students are currently shopping for uni!

Yeah, I did wonder about charity shop - but I've never seen cookware in a charity shop before... doesn't seem odd to you? I'm not sure that I would pay for second hand pans, but then again there is the student market as you've mentioned.

An induction hob is electric (rather than gas) but works using magnetism rather than direct heat, and so the actual 'rings' on the hob don't get hot, only the pans themselves. It's supposed to be as controllable/instantaneous as gas. But much, much easier to clean than a gas hob as it's just one sheet of glass.

I work in a charity shop and accepted a couple of pans the other day. They've both sold. smile

We gave ours to the friends who bought our old range cooker when we got the induction hob.

Whereabouts are you? I'm just about to trawl the local charity shops looking for some to hang up in my nursery outdoor area at school to act as musical instruments!
