Dales-Electronic :

You do not need to put any barrier between the base of the hob and the draw unit, but I would make sure that whatever you have in the draw below is not metallic as this could cause problems with the induction operation in the hob unit. As you are aware the induction process is based around generating a magnetic field within the metal pan which then causes the product to heat up in the food.
