I have updated the blog page with more photographs, including the
specification badge plate, and weight, which is 2,4kg

It is apparently 1500W, with a bimetallic switch which I suspect
doesn't kick in during my 250 second runs.

The hot plate itself is 190mm round, and is the black part in the photographs.
