Does anyone have a chunk of kitchen worktop, preferably with a hob hole
already cut in it please ?
Or is there one on your local freecycle ? A frame might also be constructed
out of scrap timber.
I had an idea for the spare hob (the one that probably won't be used in the
kitchen). Mount it in a small frame, add some heavy cable (with a 32A plug)
and use it as a portable hob. A 32A socket can probably be wired to one of
the many switches around the room, near the ceiling.
This will then allow cooking before we build the proper kitchen, and can be
used for an extra hob if we occasionally need it after the kitchen is built,
all for the price of a length of cable and a couple of plugs.
