Default Heating blocks?

We're after a heating block or equivalent to heat a pressure cooker up
with. Temp control not really required, as long as it's hot enough to boil
the water in the cooker. Any cheap (UK) suppliers recommended?

I'd suggest going to the nearest appliance store and buying
a single burner electric stove. They run about $20-40 US.

Good idea but you forget, this is the UK :-)

Very difficult to locate a single ring electric hob etc. here. Google
doesn't show anything that is single ring and I can't recall ever
seeing one in the normal stores one would go to. I wonder if a camping
store would be a better bet?

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.

Camping gas stoves are really useful. We began to use them in the lab
after a gas break and we still have them for small procedures.
CampingGaz or Coleman are the most known makers.

Have you tried Dixons or similar stores? I'd be surprised if they did
not have portable stoves (be it with one or two places).

Alternatively, you could use gas burners, in camping stores you get
units that work of small butane cartriges (advantage: very mobile,
disadvantage: high operating costs), but in an appliance store you can
also get units that are supplied from the gas pipe. I used one of the
latter systems for sterilising in a pressure cooker while working in
