Cooking with a view

Välbildad Induction cooktop in our camper van


For our cooktop we chose an induction cooktop, since we didn't want to use any gas in our van, and we didn't want to be bothered for finding different connection fittings (these can differ depending on the countries where you go). We chose a Välbildad cooktop from Ikea, which we have build in our cabinet. The induction cooktop runs on our Ective SI 20 Inverter. We gained more counter space by building a counter top which can be opened or closed. The counter top is built by glueing herring bone beech parquet on top of poplar plywood, which was then cut to size.
