    I thought this was going to be relatively easy - buy an induction hob, get it installed - but it's sounding like it's not as easy as I thought.

    The hob will be going above a 600mm cupboard. Inside the cupboard is an internal drawer, a shelf, then another internal drawer.

    I've just been at them with a magnet and the drawer sides are magnetic - will this cause a problem?

    I spoke to a guy at Siemens and he said it might and I'd need a blanking plate. Once I picked myself up off the floor at the price, I'm wondering if it is absolutely necessary?

    I might be able to rejig the cupboard internals and do the shelf then the two drawers. Would that make a difference?

    If there's a big enough gap between the bottom of the hob and the top of the drawer, would that make a difference?
