TYPES OF HOBS
Hobs come in various types:
Gas hobs: Require a gas connection but are very versatile in cooking and offer lots of temperature control. There are 2 different types of gas hobs based on the surface’s material:
- Gas on glass hob: Not only do they enhance your countertop aesthetics, but they are also easy to clean and provide instant, evenly distributed, and easily controllable heat.
- Stainless steel gas hob: Stainless steel offers excellent thermal properties, corrosion resistance, durability, and reduced susceptibility to breakage or cracking.
Electric ceramic hobs: These ceramic hobs heat up quickly, but they’re not the most efficient and stay hot for a long time after turning them off
Induction hobs: Only heat up the pots and pans, not the surface itself, so they’re safer for children. They’re also more efficient, but need specific cookware
Hobs come with varying numbers of cooking zones, and buyers should keep in mind their household size:
|Number of users
|Number of cooking zones / burners
|3 - 4 people
|3-4 cooking zones / burners
|5 cooking zones / burners
HOB FUEL TYPES
Hobs can use two different types of fuel to power your cooking, and they both have pros and cons.
Gas hobs heat up very fast and offer detailed control, but they also cool off quickly. However, many people feel uncomfortable with using gas and open flames.
Electric hobs, be they ceramic or induction hobs, use electricity to heat up the food. They’re what most people are familiar with and are relatively easy to use.
Note that these are only estimates and requirements may vary depending on the household.
Many modern hobs let you combine cooking zones and offer enhanced security both in electric and gas cooking by automatically turning off before any danger occurs.
