This is good question to your, rather to the induction stove you got Instruction manual. Of course the easy way is to touch it when it is hot, make sure it is not too hot. I've never used an induction stove, hob as you call it,I bet it is the same thing, but i have seen advertisement for them and supposedly it is a great little stove,you can get the pans on it pretty hot. Of course depending on the quality of your pan heat will or will not travel all the way thru it. Most likely it will, but I would expect it to be hotter on the part that seats directly over the heating element that the sides that are hanging over. I bet I did not really help you. The only way is to simply use it and see what is going on.
You are what you eat.
